No False Teeth Allowed

ROMANS 3:20, 23–24--"Therefore by the deeds of the law, no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin . . . for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus."
 
Holy deeds arise from hearts devoted to God, while mere actions are just the work of busy hands.

The legal devotees of the Old Testament were busy bees. God said to keep the Sabbath Day holy. But the Law fans built a hive of rules on the Commandment’s core, layering on thirty–nine principles, then piling on thirty–nine more.

Finally, Grandmother couldn’t even wear her false teeth on the Sabbath because that was a banned burden!

Jesus took all the law books and refined them back to the simple, sublime truths the Father had given for our orderly, happy living in the fallen world. He then fulfilled all the statutes and applied credit for His perfect obedience to everyone who would receive Him.

Because God looks on the heart and not ritualistic actions of the body, all believers in Christ are judged in full compliance with the Law.
