In the Name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Ghost.
What is the Law’s job? If you remember your confirmation classes you might remember that the easy answer for what the Law and Gospel do is SOS. The Law “Shows Our Sin” and the Gospel “Shows our Savior.” This is an easier explanation of the Latin phrase, lex semper accusat, “the Law always accuses.” The function of the Law is not to save but to condemn. No matter how it’s applied, the Law only condemns us, showing us that we cannot possibly live up to the perfection God’s holy Law demands.
