“What then? shal we sinne, because wee are not vnder the Law, but vnder Grace? God forbid.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
Ro 6:15 Shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? This is the old question referred to in Ro 6:1. The caviller in Paul's time, as well as in our time, objected that grace, forgiveness of sin, was an encouragement to sin. Paul shows, with much emphasis, that this is a false charge, since grace, forgiveness, implied that the sinner had died to sin. It is those who have been freed from the dominion of sin who are delivered from its penalties.
