The book of Galatians is Paul’s effort to correct the heresy of Judaizers who were trying to tell people that “Christiancults” and even most religions that are not even remotely Christian, believe that you must modify your behavior to be acceptable. You must be “good enough” or do enough “good deeds” to get to heaven according to their heresy.
The bible says that the rigteousness of Christ is imputed or accredited to the Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ and not by keeping the law given by Moses which is done away with for justification by Jesus Christ. The law’s purpose is to show people that they cannot keep it and thus leading to christ for salvation.
Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Yes, the righteousness of the law is fullfilled in those who are born of God’s Spirit and walking by his power.
“Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore BY THE DEEDS OF THE LAW THERE SHALL NO FLESH BE JUSTIFIED IN HIS SIGHT for by the law is the knowledge of sin. BUT NOW THE RIGHTEOIUSNESS WITHOUT THE LAW is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD WHICH IS BY FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being JUSTIFIED FREELY BY HIS GRACE through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the JUSTIFIER OF HIM WHICH BELIEVETH IN JESUS.
Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by THE LAW OF FAITH Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing it is one God, which shall JUSTIFY the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision THROUGH FAITH
Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. ” Romans 3
THE LAW IS ESTABLISHED BY FAITH IN CHRIST FOR THOSE WHO ARE BORN OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
