9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (1 Timothy 1:9 KJV)
All people have sinned (Romans 3:23), therefore there is no one righteous of his own human righteousness (Romans 3:10). Therefore the only way that we can be seen righteous in the sight of God is to be born again, and have the righteousness of God imparted unto us (2 Corinthians 5:21). Once you are born again, you are righteous in the sight of God; therefore the law is not for Christians, but for the unbelievers in this world.
Most people think that a righteous person is one that lives a good and decent life while here on earth. That is not so in the sight of God. Since we have all sinned and come short of the Glory of God, we have to be born again by putting faith in the Grace of God (Ephesians 2:8), by accepting the Son of God (Jesus) as our personal Savior (Romans 10:9-10). There is no other way, no matter how good a person you are, if you donít put your faith in Jesus, you will go to hell. Jesus said it plainly when He said He was the only way to the Father (John 14:6). It is that simple, and that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
