Living Free From Sin

Romans 6:14 – For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. For some reason, most Christians believe that we have to obey the Law. But here Paul writes plainly that we “are not under the law”. That means we are free from living our lives […]
