Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.
Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God's sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.
But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
not by works, so that no one can boast.
But someone will say, "You have faith; I have deeds." Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.
You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?
