Does the free gift of grace (favor) or the free gift of salvation eliminate one of the commandments or the Law? Romans 3:31 exclaims, 'GOD FORBID!".

The Law is not affected in any way by the gift of grace (favor) which is the same as the gift of salvation, by belief (faith), by justification (righteousness), by the blood of Jesus, or by His resurrection.

Only the WORKS of the Law (for atonement of sins) are obsolete because they were fulfilled in Jesus.

"Do we then make the law of none effect through faith? God forbid: nay, we establish [to cause to stand, to set or place, confirm] the law." (Romans 3:31).

Romans 3:24-31 ASV
(24) being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
(25) whom God set forth to be a propitiation, through faith, in his blood, to show his righteousness because of the passing over of the sins done aforetime, in the forbearance of God;
(26) for the showing, I say, of his righteousness at this present season [Jehovah became flesh]: that he might himself be just, and the justifier of him that hath faith in Jesus.
(27) Where then is the glorying? It is excluded. By what manner of law? of works? Nay: but by a law of faith.
(28) We reckon therefore that a man is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.
(29) Or is God the God of Jews only? is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yea, of Gentiles also:
(30) if so be that God is one, and he shall justify the circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcision through faith.
(31) Do we then make the law of none effect through faith? God forbid: nay, we establish the law.

Belief (faith) in Jesus and confession with the mouth

Romans 10:10 ASV
(10) for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Righteousness or Justification

Galatians 2:16 ASV
(16) yet knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, even we believed on Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the law: because by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Holiness or sanctification

Hebrews 12:14 ASV
(14) Follow after peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no man shall see the Lord:

Leviticus 20:7 ASV
(7) Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy; for I am Jehovah your God.

The blood of Jesus

Matthew 26:28 ASV
for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many unto remission of sins.

Hebrews 9:22 ASV
And according to the law, I may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and apart from shedding of blood there is no remission.

Matthew 16:24 ASV
(24)  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

1 Peter 1:13-16 ASV
(13)  Wherefore girding up the loins of your mind, be sober and set your hope perfectly on the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; (14)  as children of obedience, not fashioning yourselves according to your former lusts in the time of your ignorance: (15)  but like as he who called you is holy, be ye yourselves also holy in all manner of living; (16)  because it is written, Ye shall be holy; for I am holy.


Let us know what you do not understand in the Evangel of salvation of Jesus as it is written, 'I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for except ye believe that I AM [YHWH per Exodus 3:13-15], ye shall die in your sins.' John 8:24 ASV
