Galatians 2:16 (NLT) 16 Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.”
Romans 3:20 (NLT) 20 For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are.
