so, HOW are the righteous requirements of the Law--which would be obeying the commandments--fulfilled in us? By living in the flesh, or by living in the Spirit?
What is your evidence keeping the commandments is not living in the Spirit?
Galatians 6:7-9---King James Version
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
So--how does your point somehow compromise the testimony of the Savior--connecting keeping the commandments with the love of God?
John 14:15--King James Version (KJV)
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Is the love of God necessary for salvation to occur?
