Fighting the Law
I’m not familiar with this author yet, but it is exciting to witness a man whose vision is starting to clear regarding the law and gospel.
Paul tells Timothy that the law is good if used lawfully (1 Timothy 1:8). In the same passage he tells us that certain persons have swerved from love issued from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith. The result is that they have wandered into vain discussions. They desire to be teachers of the law, but in reality they don’t understand what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions (1:5-7).
What does Paul urge Timothy to charge these people with in verse 3? Teaching a different doctrine.
I’m excited for the author (Mark Galli) as he begins his journey from fighting the law to delighting in God’s law. At the same time, I pray for him that he will stand firm and use it lawfully. Read: I Fought the Law
