Some of your contentions are very good. Much like Des and Ratzlaff and later Des & Brimsmead “Verdict” mag had over “Spirit vs. Law.”
The biggest point is " By the deeds of the law shall no flesh be justified in His sight. Paul in Romans 13:9 is showing the proper use of law/Torah as a guide… not method of salvation… is not against Love or the Spirit.
If we have a NT tabula rosa and I ask what is love to a pagan what might the answer be? The law is simply a framework we may see as an ethical and pedagogical tool, not a means or method of salvation.
The NT church member is not under days, months, years, foods etc. of the Jewish covenant but they led of the Spirit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, kindness, faith,goodness, self control can see within that thou shall not kill, steal, commit adultery,bear false witness, covet, honor thy father and mother.
And again, as mentioned before between us, no lexicon ever mentions Justification/righteous meaning.as being brought or in covenant/community membership as even NT Wright acknowledges. JBF “alone” received through the spirit by the believer is however the entrance into the community of faith of those trusting in Christ.
Those “old reformers and old Protestants” bring to us what brings us to our savior and John Newton is one example of One saved by those teachings…who despised his old life. I chose that rendition as likely Judy with the Harlem choir for that very reason! I first was greatly moved by her singing it in 1972.
Later, off to a Sunday Brunch with my lovely wife with friends.
