“Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head:
they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away” (Isaiah 51:11).
Law and Grace

The Rich Young Man

Under Construction
"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law." 1 John 3:4

Many misguided individuals have been led to the baseless notion that God’s law and His saving grace are somehow in contrast or opposition one to another. We assert that such a presumption is absurd and without sound doctrinal foundation.

The Reformed Church of Israel’s theological position is that salvation was, is, and ever shall be by the miraculous, unmerited grace of God. The Mosaic covenant of law established with Israel at Mount Sinai was never for the purpose of affecting their eternal salvation. Instead, it was set forth as a measuring stick and standard by which their lives, both collectively and individually, would be ordered and established. The law of God defines sin. Conformity to it enables the individual, the family, the community, and even the nation as a whole to be sanctified and brought into proper union, harmony, and relationship with the great creator and lawgiver Himself, the covenant God of Scripture.

To understand the proper balance and relationship between the sound Biblical doctrines of law and grace is truly a noble objective and pursuit. To fail in such a quest will certainly result in the Christian life and performance of the individual in question being rendered substantially ineffective. Under this heading we will seek to provide compelling and enabling truth directed toward such an end.

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness,
and let us put on the armour of light” (Romans 13:12).
