The Moral Law of God

October 7, 2017
The German monk and protestant reformer Martin Luther offered a three-fold description of the law of God. Luther said the law was like a hammer, a mirror, and a whip. The law is like a hammer in that it smashes our self-righteousness as we realize that we cannot keep it. The law is like a mirror in that it reflects our sinful thoughts, and words, and deeds. The law is like a whip, Luther said, in that it drives us to the foot of the cross of Christ, as we grasp our need for a Savior, and understand that only Christ can take away our sin. But there is much more for us to comprehend about the law of God. Did you know that there are three types of law mentioned in the Scriptures? Did you know that the law has a three-fold purpose—even for those trusting solely in the grace of God offered to us through Jesus Christ? Dr. D. James Kennedy explains, in one of his most insightful messages: “The Moral Law of God.”

About D. James Kennedy, Ph.D.

The late Dr. D. James Kennedy remains one of the most listened-to Christian ministers in America. His forthright and rational presentation of the Gospel is heard via television, radio, and the Internet throughout America and the world.

Dr. Kennedy, who entered the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ, on September 5, 2007, began his Christian life in 1953 after he was startled awake one Sunday morning by a preacher's stern question coming out of his clock radio. "Suppose you were to die today and stand before God," the voice boomed, "and He were to ask you, 'What right do you have to enter into My heaven?' — what would you say?" Dr. Kennedy soon discovered the answer, was converted to Christ, and shortly thereafter was called into the Gospel ministry. Today, Dr. Kennedy's broadcast messages are televised to a nationwide audience.

Dr. Kennedy served for 47 years as Senior Minister of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A modest mission church of 45 people when Dr. Kennedy arrived in 1959, the rocketing growth of the church made it, for 15 years, the fastest growing Presbyterian church in America. Decision magazine named the church one of the "Five Great Churches of North America." In 2005, Dr. Kennedy was inducted into the National Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Dr. Kennedy's energetic commitment to both evangelism and cultural renewal is demonstrated by four organizations he founded: Truth in Action Ministries (formerly Coral Ridge Ministries), Evangelism Explosion International, Knox Theological Seminary, and Westminster Academy.
