Against Such there is no Law

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galations 5:22-23)
What does "against such there is no law" mean?

Dennis E. Simmons wrote "the Spirit can penetrate anything. No law can be passed which will preclude the Spirit from doing His work with an obedient follower of Christ." ("His Peace", GC, Apr 1997)

This makes sense to me.


"that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually" (Moroni 7:13) Also, the Holy Spirit continually invites and entices us to good.

I like the analogy of the Holy Spirit as the light that comes from the sun. The light is always shining down on the earth. We may obscure it with clouds of doubt or sin. That does not mean it has stopped shining.
