THE MORAL LAW WAS IN FORCE LONG BEFORE MT. SINAI.

THIS LAW IS AS OLD AS GOD HIMSELF.

ROMANS 4:15 "Where there is no law, there is no violation."

ROMANS 5:13 "For sin is the transgression of the law" ( 1 John 3:4).

Certainly, Lucifer sinned, when he rebelled against God in heaven. That means there was a LAW in heaven.

HOSEA 6:7, JOB 31:33 Adam sinned.

GENESIS 6:5 The people of Noahís day sinned.

GENESIS 18:20 Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for their lawlessness (sin).

These people lived long before Mt. Sinai.

GENESIS 26:5 Abraham kept Gods "commandments," and His "laws."

EXODUS 16:25 To the children of Israel, before Mt. Sinai, God said "How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?"
