Salvation – by faith or by the law?

Bible and HammerSomeone sent me a question that is very important and I thought to share my response with everyone.


“Salvation: I want to learn from you how will the believers be saved,
they will saved through faith plus observing laws or just faith alone?”


In a nut shell, we are not required to keep the law for salvation after Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. He was the fulfilment or completion of the law… hence he said ”it is finished”. Because he fulfilled the law we are not required to keep it for salvation and righteousness. We need only have faith in order to access God’s grace for our salvation. See these scriptures:

Romans 3:20 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.

Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: itis the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Galatians 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availed anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worked by love.

Galatians 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
