Bible TextRomans 10:5

We cannot be saved by law by doing of our own “For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.” (Rom 10: 5) If righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing! (Gal. 2:21). If a law could have given us life, then God would have given us such a law. (Gal 3: 21) All a law can do is set forth requirements and prescribe penalties for failure. Since we all fell in Adam the law cannot give us life. We never achieve perfect obedience in this life so we can never look to law for righteousness, even after we are brought to faith in Christ.  The law has no part whatsoever in making a sinner the righteousness of God.
