d. Case Study : One of your relatives states: “Is conviction the same as guilt? Is there a difference between sin and sins? How do we cope with both conviction and guilt for sin and sins?” How would you respond to your relative?

c. Personal Application : What is your understanding of the difference between self-justification and Christ’s righteousness? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study : One of your friends states, “Nobody can keep the law. The law was done away with by Christ on the cross because it was a bad law that nobody could obey. We are justified by faith and are no longer under an archaic, useless law.” How would you respond to your friend?
