When you read Paulâ€™s letters you find him calling the law some pretty awful names: â€śthe law worketh wrathâ€ť (Rom. 4:15); â€śthe law of sin and deathâ€ť (Rom. 8:2); â€śthe curse of the lawâ€ť (Gal. 3:13); "the letter that kills" (2 Cor. 3:6); "the ministry of sin and death" (Rom. 8:2).
Wow, Paul must have really hated the law!
And then you find Paul elsewhere calling the law â€śgoodâ€ť (I Tim. 1:8); "not against the promises of God" (Gal. 3:21); â€śholyâ€ť (Rom 7:12); Paul even says he â€śdelights in the law of Godâ€ť (Rom 7:22).
And you think, â€śwell, Paul, which is it?â€ť Did Paul change his mind? (If so, then he could not have been inspired by the Holy Spirit). Is the Bible contradictory as its enemies claim?
