Q 13 Can anyone keep the law of God perfectly?


Since the fall, no mere human has been able to keep the

law of God perfectly, but consistently breaks it in

thought, word, and deed.


Q 14 Did God create us unable to keep his law?


No, but because of the disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve, all of creation is fallen; we are all born in sin and guilt, corrupt in our nature and unable to keep God’s law.
