I am not saying at all that the Law of God is bad! God forbid I ever even think such as that. It is what Paul says it is... a teacher that teaches us what sin is. Nevertheless... it has no power to do anything but teach us what sin is. And while folks might think it the catch all end all and all one has to do is follow it.... they are simply setting themselves up for failure because of that nature of man. You cannot do it.
Paul is not talking about being free from the law when he speaks of freedom. He is speaking of being free from the bondage of sin.
Romans 7:23 *but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind, and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.
24 *Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?
25 *Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.
He goes on to show us how we can even live our life free from the sin which binds the flesh... live by the Spirit and then you won't fulfill the lust of the flesh (enter into Romans 8).
