July 13 Read Romans 7 Were it not for The Law, I would not know sin

Paul makes a point that without The Law defining covetousness, he would not know sin. So does this mean that just because God gave Moses The ten commandments that now Paul knows he's a sinner? I don't think so. I firmly believe there are certain truths which we simply know naturally. Perhaps God has written parts of The Law into our genetics. It's in nature. Through history we see in so many civilizations common prohibitions against things like murder and theft, where does this come from. It's The Law, it's written on nature. Paul may refer to what was written by Moses but The Law exists and existed even before Moses. Regardless of how we find it, it's what convicts us of our sins and shows us that we need a savior.
