Romans 3:19: Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. 20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.
Clearly not one of us can say something when it comes to breaking the law. We are all accountable to God because we all have sinned and we all must die for our sins – that is the decree of the law. Thankfully we have access to a new covenant – one of grace and truth in Jesus Christ.
