“There is a purpose for the law for both the saved and unsaved.”

God's commands do not apply only to those who don't know Him.

Quick Quote – Source – Jeff Hilles

A Biblical Christian worldview perspective – I received a comment recently that included the statement that “God’s law is only for unbelievers”. However, the law, as offered by the Bible, has a purpose for all mankind.

For the unbeliever, God’s law, as written in the Bible is both a warning and a condemnation of eternal separation from the Lord, on earth and in Heaven (Matt. 6:10, John 3:18). For the saved, God’s law remains important as a reminder of what is right and perfect (something we cannot obtain to Rom. 7:24), a basis to speak to the lost on what righteousness looks like (Matt. 5:20), a view of what Christ died as a sacrifice for (Heb. 9:28), how far we fall short (1 Cor. 15:3), and, a view of what perfection will look like in Heaven (ex. 1 Cor. 13:4-8).
