No one is justified by keeping the law. Any method of justification other than faith in Jesus Christ is a method that leads people astray. Even the law keepers don't keep those laws properly.

yes, without grace there is no salvation. A person can keep the law perfectly and still be lost, for the law saves no one, only grace saves. As sister Rebecca says so well here at the blogs: it is a matter of the heart. Keeping the commandments without love is empty and death. Please read Luke 18:10-14.

Rom 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

I do not mean to judge anyone. To me to judge in the biblical context would be to pronounce someone as "lost" or "saved". That is not my job!
I do believe in evaluating what someone says or writes, so here it is:
Most of the texts that you used to make your point actually deal with the Ceremonial laws NOT with the 10 commandments. Check it out! P.

Rom 14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another . . . [let] no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
14 . . . to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat . . . Destroy not him with thy meat . . .
Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you . . . in respect of the sabbath . . .
The SDA are not sinning, being convicted to worship on Saturday. Their sin is judging those who worship on Sunday.

Rom 3:20 . . . by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified . . . by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Gal 3:23 . . . before faith . . . we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should . . . be revealed.
24 . . . the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, to be justified by faith.
The law taught us our sin & our condemnation, teaching us our need for a solution, Jesus Christ, who died our death for sin, justifying those who serve Him in Spirit.

When the Bible states, "All" it means all. No one can keep the law - in fact Christ made it even harder. (Read Mt. 22:37-40) He also made it harder by stating we only had to "think" a sinful thought to be guilty of breaking all. Fortunately, Christ came and FULLFILLED the Law, (NOT replace it) and because He did we have also been found innocent, because of what Christ did, IF we accept what He did as fullfilling the Law for us as individuals.

Yes it is correct to say that anyone trying to keep the law to become justified/saved would be completely wrong!
So is the person who believes that the FAITH mentioned in the text "nullfies" the law. It does not! It "upholds" the law v31. P.
