<105> Thesis:   Any/every attempt by our opponents to get God to subject us to "Law" is doomed to failure. Introduction:   So far in our studies of this final paragraph in Romans 8 we have considered the first three of the seven questions that Paul raises. The first question asks for a firm conclusion to the declarations of the previous paragraph. The second question answers the first. The third question addresses the first part of the second question (If God is "for" us...) with a resounding promise of God's commitment to provide for us all things necessary for "Life" and "godliness" (Peter's terminology in 2 Peter 1:3). Now we come to the fourth question. It (along with questions 5, 6, and 7) addresses the second part of the second question (...who can be against us?). Since there are four questions to address regarding those who are against us, this is a most necessary issue: there are those who seek our ruin.
