    To be free from the condemnation of the Law is not an "opt out," or as if we can say a password and get let into the Club while the rest have to pay. If there is no real deliverance from the power of darkness, and of sin's dominion over us; then there can be no release from the condemnation of the Law. Jesus did a complete and perfect work on the cross, to save us FROM our sins, not IN our sins!

    :21-31 reveal the allegory of Abraham, being God the Father, Hagar being the Ten Commandments in stone, Sarah being the Ten Commandments in the heart, Ishmael being God's first born son Israel and Isaac being God's second born son Christianity, this allegory is repeated in Romans 9 when using the same typologies for the law of God in stone is bondage but in the heart it is libtery.

    Just to add to what Scott said, being free from the Law also means not under its condemnation, and that can only happen when Christ is living in us, only Christ can bring freedom from the condemnation of the law.

    Paul's writings are hard to understand if you do not understand the "law" and what the "curse" of the law is. Being under the curse was when you broke the law or did not keep it. keeping the law was not a curse to you and the law in itself was not a curse to anyone. Paul is saying that the law must be kept to not be under the curse of the law. That the Messiah Yushua Jesus came to redeem those that were under the curse of the law which was "Sin". He did not come to take away the law, but came to take away the curse sin's of those that had not kept the law. He died for our sins to be taken away, not the law to be taken away as some may believe.

    In this chapter the divergent path of is explained. Will we trust in the Law given by God thru Moses, the oracles, or do we obviate the law thru Faith in the Son of God. Our faith, does it not depend on the law, for God heareth no sinners. He is a God who loves righteousness and hates the worldly man. Jacob have I loves but Esau have I hated. I think will must be ever mindful of our actions and perceptive of our inner most being so that we are acceptable in his sight. Our Faith is strengthened as we endure the hardships put in our path and still not falter in our Faith. Let every aspirant work out his own salvation by staying in the Word of Good, thereby being approved of God, the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ.
