@jlaverde The Law most definitely was NOT around when Abraham was alive, that was a different circumstance whereby Abraham was was righteous because of his faithfulness and reliance on God, this was in a period of Mercy not Law.

@jlaverde The verse I have linked was before the covenent of Law was made, I think I need to add an update to the question to provide a bit more context around the angle I am coming from so that a comprehensive answer can be provided. I will update my question later, after work.

Thanks for your input especially the Hebrew part. From your answer I am still not sure whether or not the Israelites had intended to work in their own strength. The other links from Psalms are not clear enough either I'm afraid, as they were written centuries after and seem, to me at least, as personal promises/prayers/thoughts between David and God, but nevertheless your addition is gratefully received.

comment Why is faith so much more important than being a good person?
@Tomas, 'works' refers to works of the Law, not works that are the side effect of a true and life changing faith. The latter works are part of the 'fruit' that demonstrate a true Christian.

"A good and just God", your answer is in part of your friends question; God is good but He is also JUSTICE, which means He cannot ignore our sin otherwise He would not be good.

comment Are there any biblical incidents of people condemned for consensual premarital sex?
Does it have to be what most Americans would consider or would a British/other Western perspective have any relevance to your answer criteria?

comment In what way is God the “Father” of Jesus?
So John 8:58, does not imply Jesus is Yahweh?

comment What assures Christians that they alone are saved?
The Mormon belief of the Godhead (religionfacts.com/mormonism/beliefs/godhead_not_trinity.htm) states that they are 3 distinct seperate beings.

The basis of avodah zarah is about Shittuf (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shituf), Christians do not worship a different being, Jesus, The Father, The Holy Spirit are one in the same God not separate beings as the Mormons, for example, would believe or as Muslims believe.
