Not only does a wrongful conviction rob a person of their life; But as many lawyers will admit upon questioning, just a wrongful accusation can also ruin a happy life. My own lawyer told me of several clients whose lives were totally ruined simply because they were questioined or asked about by the police in an investigation. Gossip soon spread they were somehow involved in it, and what followed was their careers or businesses failed along with their social network, to the point they actually had to move to a different city, start life all over again.
Compare this with John 5:45, which says do not think I (JC grace and truth) will accuse you, but Moses' law will accuse you. John 10:10 goes on tell how law is a thief that cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. Many people have had their life destroyed by an accusation that was not true.
Bottom line is law demands perfection Genesis 17:1, but can't make anyone perfect in Hebrews 10:1; For law is faulty: Hebrews 8:7, corruptible: 1Cor 15.
1Peter 1:23 notes born again is of incorruptible seed: grace, not of corruptible seed: law, nor of any law and grace mixture: Luke 5:36,37. For as 1Cor 15:50-53 notes, corruption(law) cannot inherit incorruption(grace); So this corruptible(law) must put on incorruption(grace), for a mortal to become an immortal.
So law demands grace, but law is not grace any more than mortal is immortal or corruptible is incorruptible. Hence we put off law (the old man) to put on grace (the new man). For they are contrary things that can't co-exist in peace. Christ is our peace who abolished the law. Christ is the end of the law: Romans 10:4, and not mend of the law: Luke 5:36.
Grace neither accuses nor condemns or law imputes sin:
John 3:17... John 5:45... John 8:11... 2Cor 5:19
Why not? Because law imputed sin, when it is finished, brings forth death: James 1:15, not life; And law is the strength of sin's death sting: 1Corinthians 15:56, thereby the ministration of condemnation and the ministration of death: 2Cor 3.
So let us put away faulty law for grace that is perfect: grace void of law, to have mercy void of sacrifice, and peace void of division.
May your law dogs be much less hounding,
when your grace is much more abounding, and
may only grace-->mercy-->peace enter your door.
The GRACE of our Lord Jesus Christ with you all. Amen.
