What is going on in these verse I quoted from Romans three
is that Paul is blowing up the idea that righteousness can be something that you can display,
which was normally how it worked,
facilitated by having a written code that tells everyone what a righteous person should look like.
If you have a law of faith,
an internal thing that spiritually connects the believer with God to know what to do that would be right,
then that completely destroys the old system where you could just strut around looking right,
so everyone will be impressed by your appearance and honor you are as righteous,
based on that written description that you could fraudulently emulate.
