In studying the LS threads, I came on some verses that gave me pause. These verses are as follows, from KJV: Rom 2:13 For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. Rom 3:20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. As I look at these verses, on the surface it almost seems if Paul commits a contradiction. I do not understand his point, which seems to be the doers of the law will be justified, except that no human can be justified by keeping the law? Then: Mat 7:21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. So, we must DO the will of the Father, but we know that no flesh can be justified by DOING? I would appreciate any thoughts. I am not attempting to rehash any LS threads, just get a better understanding of these verses in their context, which I may be outside.
