Thanks be to God we are no longer under the Law !Thanks for moving off the external and into the realm of factoring the unseen adversary at the heart of this issue.
The laws are much more interesting when we see the motions of sin and evil, which are demonically sourced, and are actually advanced by the laws.
12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.
We don't hold up the law so that people will obey it. We hold it up so that they fail and fall.
That's the power of the law.
1 Cor. 15:56
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
Jesus shows us exactly how this works. So does Paul.
The commandment comes. Then immediately resistance comes in our minds to that law, in many disguises I might add.
That resistance if from our adversary, the tempter. The law proves it. Not many believe it, unfortunately.
They are falsely led to think it's just them, there in their own minds. When nothing could be further from the truth
