I was reading in the Bible the following:
Phil 3:9 and so that you may be found in him, not having my justice, which is of the law, but that which is of the faith of Christ Jesus, the justice within faith, which is of God.

What is Paul talking about? How can Law justify anybody? Jesus is the only way , right? Please enlighten.
Thanks in advance.

When Paul talks about "the Law":, he is referring to Jewish law as expounded in the Torah. Yes, Jesus is the only way.

Peace,

Double Yup!

He's certainly not talking about the HHS Mandate!
