Some people believe that the law of God is bad. After all, isn’t the law ‘a ministry of death’? Didn’t Paul speak strongly against the law?
Those who think this way fail to distinguish between ‘the law of God’ (which is holy, just and good) and attempting to earn God’s forgiveness and favour by keeping the law (which is impossible). Below is a comparison I took from here that shows the similarities between God and His law. This should come as no surprise since the law of God is part of His nature. » Genesis 21:33: God is everlasting.

» Romans 7:12: The law is just. » I John 1:5: God is light.
» Proverbs 6:23: The law is light. » I John 4:8: God is love.
» Romans 13:10: The law is love. » Matthew 5:48: God is perfect.
» Psalm 19:7: The law is perfect. » Psalm 145:17: God is righteous.
» Psalm 119:172: The law is righteous. » John 4:24: God is spiritual.
» Romans 7:14: The law is spiritual. » Deuteronomy 32:4: God is truth.
