The 10 Commandments are the standard by which God will judge our lives—did we keep them? If we have not, then each transgression of the Law is sin. On Judgment Day we will be found guilty and end up in Hell forever to pay for our sins ourselves.
“Oh no!” you may gasp. “What must I do to be saved from Hell?”
And that is the right question to ask. The Law is like a nasty, grouchy schoolmarm pointing sinners to the cross.
Galatians 3:24– “Therefore the Law has become our tutor (KJV: schoolmaster) to lead us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” (NASB)
