KEEPLAWS are just as bad as SCOFFLAWS because they are not mindful of the same standard in different ways. At least scofflaws recognize that they are breaking the standard of perfection and keep on breaking laws.

The one who thinks he keeps the law is really using the wrong standard by which he measures himself. He uses the standard of his neighbor rather than the law itself. If I only break the speed limit 50% of the time, I am better than the person who breaks the speed limit 90% of the time.

But the law does not want me to break the law ever! Only the perfect are worthy. And I am a law breaker when measured against perfection? Who made your neighbor your standard?

KEEPLAWS are as bad as SCOFFLAWS because of their focus--themselves as the source and sustainer. Instead, when it comes to God's salvation, the focus must be on God to make salvation happen.
