Is Christ the end of Law – Part 2

Another passage which is commonly misunderstood and sometimes wrongly translated ( as in Tamil Bible) is Rom 7.

 Rom 7:4,6 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ;..But now we are delivered from the law,..

This is commonly used as a reason for teaching that we need not keep the Moral Law or Ten commandments. In Tamil Bible it is even translated as we are dead to the Law of God… and delivered from the Law of God.

But Paul is not talking about the Law of God in the Rom 7:1-6. He says we are delivered from the Law of sin and we are dead to the Law of sin.
For I delight in the law of Godafter the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to thelaw of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.Rom 7:22 – 25 Rom 8:1,2 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
