Galatians 2:21

MSG 21 I am not going to go back on that. Is it not clear to you that to go back to that old rule-keeping, peer-pleasing religion would be an abandonment of everything personal and free in my relationship with God? I refuse to do that, to repudiate God's grace. If a living relationship with God could come by rule-keeping, then Christ died unnecessarily. NIV 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"
