Q. But doesn’t God do us an injustice by requiring in his law what we are unable to do?

A. No, God created humans with the ability to keep the law. They, however, tempted by the devil, in reckless disobedience, robbed themselves and all their descendants of these gifts. (Gen. 1:31; Eph. 4:24, Gen. 3:13; John 8:44, Gen. 3:6, Rom. 5:12, 18, 19)
