Grace does not remove the beneficial laws but, through Christ’s sacrifice, pays the penalty of sin. It is not a case of law vs. grace. God’s revelation is that law and grace work together.
So why do so many today believe grace abolishes God’s law or that they are at odds. Here are the 12 questions answered in The Grace Controversy: 1.
