The Law Reveals Sin but Cannot Remove It

The Law reveals sin but cannot remove it.  It prescribes righteousness but is powerless to produce it. The Law is important – it has no creative power, it cannot inspire.  It offers us nothing but condemnation and death.  The Law apart from the Gospel can only crush; it cannot cure.
