Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Why the Law?

Sceptics often mock, “Are you saying that no one knew they were doing wrong before the Ten Commandments. And I reply, “You don’t know right from wrong even with the Ten Commandments.”

“But I can hear you say, "If the law code was as bad as all that, it's no better than sin itself." That's certainly not true. The law code had a perfectly legitimate function. Without its clear guidelines for right and wrong, moral behaviour would be mostly guesswork. Apart from the succinct, surgical command, "You shall not covet," I could have dressed covetousness up to look like a virtue and ruined my life with it. Romans 7:7
