  • Barlyn on Galatians 2:16
    Today the law does not justify a person's existence, nor does it give justification of a person's birth into this world. Christ, who died for us, however, is the justification why we exist in this world today possessing all the rights to reach salvation. For in order for us humans to be justified by the law, we must either be equal to it or above it. Example: Adam and Eve, before they sinned, were living above the law, therefore justified that their existence was righteous. But when they sinned, became under the law having to live up to it with no hope of salvation unless they were justified. Thus, something or someone greater (WILLING to pay the price) must had to either be made equal or inferior to them/us so they/we may yet again have a justified reason to live above the law and be restored to their/our first nature. While Adam and Eve's/our sinful, limited, and preoccupied mind could not even come close to think up a reason to justify their/our existence, God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ, had already placed in action the plan that would permanently justify Adam and Eve's/our existence fully restoring once and for all their/our rights to live eternally. Now, definition of "justified" as specified by Merriam Webster Online dictionary is: 1. To prove or show to be just, right, or reasonable 2. To qualify (oneself) as a surety by taking oath to the ownership of sufficient property. 3. To judge, regard, or treat as righteous and worthy of salvation. 4. To qualify as bail or surety. That said, which of these definitions does Christ not fit?... Not only did Christ didn't consider leaving His throne, but also was concious of the humiliation He was put through as He was made inferior than humankind becoming the ultimate sacrifice to restore salvation to us all.
