the law entered that sin might abound;Romans 5:20 and Galatians 3:22 but
thanks be to God, who has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ,1 Corinthians 15:57 in order that Romans 5:20 and Galatians 3:22 and that we might overcome death by a deathless resurrection, and sin,
the stingthereof, by a free justification.--St. Augustine, On Merit and Remission of Sins, Book III, par. 20.
