    It is ridiculous to say that under the new covenant the Ten Commandments are no longer applicable:-

    Do not murder
    Do not lie
    Do not steal
    Do not commit adultery
    Do not give false testimony

    Just as it is ridiculous to say that the requirement to love God is no longer valid under the new covenant: Luke 10:27-28.

    Keep in mind that the gospels are technically old testament books until their very end. Christ hadn't died yet and the Mosaic Law was still in effect for the Jews until the temple was destroyed.

    Whenever I see or hear this type of rhetoric, I am reminded of this drawing I came across.

    Also this verse... 1 Corinthians 2:2

    Also... this verse... 2 Corinthians 11:3

    PERFECT obedience to God always has been and always will be what is necessary to be judged righteous. In the varying administrations/dispensations the specifics required of specific men changed. But nEver did a mere man meet this standard. Always, believers were required to trust in what God had revealied about HIS merciful/gracious provision of redemption via a promised redeemer (Gen 3:15, and following). It has ALWAYS been the perfect obedience of the perfect redeemer being credited to the accounts of those trusting in Him that provided for the right standing of the believing before God, the father of the promised savior.

    So, Jesus answered the lawyer and rich young ruler correctly. Were they to obey the cited commands perfectly - jusification. The Bible makes it clear that they are incapable of perfect obedience.

    It is also true that those truly trusting in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus are justified - credited with the perfect obedience of Jesus to the commands of his father.
