|Romans 3:31 "Do we, then, through faith make the law of no effect? in no way: but we make it clear that the law is important."||"Does this mean that we do away with the Law when we put our trust in Christ? No, not at all. It means we know the Law is important."||"Does faith make the law useless? Not at all! We agree with the law."||"So do we destroy the law by following the way of faith? No!

|2 Timothy 3:16: "Every holy Writing which comes from God is of profit for teaching, for training, for guiding, for education in righteousness:"||"All the Holy Writing are God-given and are made alive by Him.

It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right."||"All Scripture is given by God. And all Scripture is useful for teaching and for showing people the things that are wrong in their lives.

He said with a loud voice. "Honor God with love and fear. The time has come for Him to say who is guilty among men. Worship Him Who made heaven and earth and the sea and the places where water comes out of the earth."||"I saw another angel. He was flying high in the air.

The hour has come for God to judge. Worship him who made the heavens and the earth. Worship him who made the sea and the springs of water."||"Then I saw another angel flying high in the air.
