You may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment. (Psalm 51)
In the Name + of Jesus. Amen. God's Word Justifies sinners. God's Word is clear. The Word of Lord condemns sin. Y ou are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you. The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers. You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man. (Psalm 5)
God's anger burns hot against sin and against sinners. God in His mercy sends you His Word. The Word of God that justifies sinners.
God's Holy Law is preached against sin to remove from the sinner any hope that we could ever save ourselves. The law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. (Romans 3)
