4/23/23 Romans 7:7-13 Is the Law Sin and the Cause of Death?
In verses 7-13 of chapter 7, Paul asks two questions, "Is the law sin?" and "Is the law the cause of death?" To both he gives the resounding answer, "No, may it never be!" Rather the law is holy, righteous and good, reflecting God's nature and is given to reveal sin as sin with all of its consequences. In these verses, Paul also begins to speak about his own life, giving his own testimony of how the 10th Commandment to not covet revealed his own sin nature.
