    I said nothing in my post about needing to obey the Mosaic Law in order to become saved. God had many purposes for giving His Law, but that was never one of them and has always been a fundamental misunderstanding of its goal. In Romans 1:5, we have received grace in order to bring about the obedience that faith requires, so we are not saved by our obedience, but rather the same grace and faith by which we are saved also requires our obedience. In Matthew 23:23, Jesus said that faith is one of the weightier matters of the Law, so obedience to God's instructions what it looks like to trust in Him.

    Jesus began his ministry with the Gospel message to repent from our sins for the Kingdom of God is at hand (Matthew 4:17, 23) and the Mosaic Law is how his audience knew what sin is, so repenting from our disobedience to the Mosaic Law is what it means to obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus said that he would tell those who were workers of Lawlessness to depart from him because he never knew them. Likewise, in 1 John 3:4-6, sin is defined as the transgression of God's Law and those who continue to practice sin have neither seen nor known him.

    Yes brother ..it DOES bring death ..praise God for we are dead as we all have come short of the glory of God and broken every commandment ...but your brother Ken was pointing out that the law was fulfilled in Christ and through Him we no longer desire our neighbors wife ...we no longer want to hate or murder ...The Law of Christ writes the law of true love on our hearts ...love of God , neighbor ..love of our enemies ..Have you experienced God's mercy ?

    1. We fulfill the law of Christ/faith/spirit/Righteousness/Salvation/and Liberty(James 1:,21,22,25; James 2:8,9,10,11,12; Romans 8:2; Galatians 6:2; John 14:6; Romans 10:6; Romans 9:30
    Ephesians 2:8; Acts 4:12; Acts 28:28; Romans 1:16; Romans 8:2; Romans 7:6,12,14,15,16,22,25; Romans 8:1,4,14; Romans 8:9,10,11,13,16; Romans 3:21,22,24,25,26,27; Galatians 2:16; Hebrews 11) by keeping the Commandments of the Apostles and Christ(Acts 20:26-28;Acts 2:42; Titus 1:9; 2 Thess 3:6; 2 Thess 2:14-17; 2 John 9-10; 2 Tim 5:21; 2 Peter 3:1-2, 15-18; 1 Timothy 1:13-14; 2 Tim 3:10, 14-15; Rom 13:2,9-10; Romans 16:25-27; Romans 15:19,29; 1 Cor 14:37; Gal 1:6-12; Hebrews 13:8-9; John 14:21,23, Matt 28:20; 2 Peter 1:20-21). Our New covenant through Christ has no part of the Old Law written on Parchment, the Law of the Spirit is everything contained within the New Testament, all the words of the Apostles are we to obey, we are also to obey the Words/commandments given by Christ when he spoke and none understood because it's knowledge was still hidden until the fulfillment.

    The Law of Moses is the Handwriting of Ordinances written on parchment(Exodus 34:27; Nehemiah 9:13,14; 2 Chronicles 33:8; Exodus 18:20; Leviticus 18:4; 2 Kings 17:34,35,37,38) it was the Old covenant/Book of the Covenant(Exodus 34:27; Exodus 24:7; 2 Kings 23:21; 2 Kings 23:2,3,21; Deut 29:27,29; Joshua 1:7-8; Deuteronomy 31:24,26; Deuteronomy 30:10; Joshua 23:6; Joshua 24:26; 2 Kings 14:6; 2 Chronicles 25:4; 2 Chronicles 17:9; Nehemiah 9:3; Nehemiah 8:1; Ezra 6:18; Nehemiah 13:1; 2 Kings 22:8-13 ; Psalm 40:7; 1 Samuel 10:25; Nehemiah 8:9; Joshua 8:31,31,34,35) no flesh can be saved by the Law of Moses.
