“(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.”
King James Version (KJV)

i believe that this verse in parenthesis for a reason. it is just making the point that since adam and eve sinned, sin has been in the world. this is why the next part of the chapter will confirm just that. that through one man sin entered the world and because of that all mankind is a sinner.

I believe that this says that even in today 's time, if someone who has never heard of Jesus, Moses or the law,sins! there sin will not be counted against them. It 's the same as someone who 's insane with a very low I Q commits a horrible crime that carries a death penalty, most states will not execute that person because his IQ prevents him from understanding the law. Or someone in the deepest part of the jungle never even heard of civilization, only law he knows is the law of his land.

If as the Word says Christ has met the law at the cross and paid its price through the death of the creator of it it is indeed fulfilled and there is no further condemnation to those who are in Christ Faith in his death burial and resurrection with the gift of the HS frees us from its jurisdiction and its punishment death because we are new creatures sons of God and not Adam

in the garden God made every tree that was good
but the one in the midst of it you shall knot eat.
is that a command or law in a sence. how come food laws aren't being tout in churches today.
