14 Can Moses' Law from God make you righteous

Mr. Paul vs Mr. Paul again

In a New Testament letter, Paul teaches:
You’re declared righteous by obeying the Law of Moses

 But hold it!

In the same letter Paul teaches:
That nobody will be declared righteous by obeying the Law of Moses

Paul says you can be righteous through obedience to Old Testament Law

Romans 2:13 It is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.

But later Paul turns around and says you can't be righteous through your observance of the same Law

Romans 3:20 No one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.

Recap: Say what, Paul?

Look it up:
Romans 2:13 and
Romans 3:20
