Paul didn’t put Gentiles under the Law of Moses. He continually protected them from Law keepers. Who sought to frustrate the grace of Christ because they were jealous of the believers’ freedom.
I can imagine how frustrating it was for Jesus who was fighting with people who claimed to be representatives of God, yet taught lies about God's Word, even after He showed them in the scriptures and exposed the lie.
The Apostles didn't protect the New believers from obedient Christians, or the true Law of Moses as you preach. They protected the new believers from a religion that had deceived "MANY" people, was the cause of the murder of many prophets for centuries, and the murder of the Word which became Flesh, Stephen and many others. The Apostles directed the Gentiles "TOWARDS" God Commandments and the "Law of Moses" to learn from, and away from the Mainstream Preaching of that time, just as Jesus told them to do.
Matt. 23:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, (They follow and preach the Laws of God) and do not.
4 For they (Pharisees,Not God, or Moses)bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders(Necks); but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
Acts 15:10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? (Burdens placed on them by the Pharisees, not Moses)
Acts 15:19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God:
20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols,(Law of Moses) and from fornication,(Law of Moses) and from things strangled,(Law of Moses) and from blood.(Law of Moses)
21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Only as Jesus said, do as they read, not as they preach, because they say they follow the Law of Moses but in truth they "Teach for Doctrines the Commandments of men".
I wish people would stop using this forum as a vehicle to further the insidious lie that the Pharisees were "trying to earn salvation" by following God's Laws, and not their own as Jesus taught. This one lie is the cause of so many false doctrines. If a person will come clean with himself regarding this one false teaching, it would free him of so much deception.
I know you mean well Cee, and this is what we both have been taught since our youth. This is what Jesus warned of in Matt. 24. Look into it yourself and you will find that the Apostles led believers away from the doctrines of the Pharisees which transgressed the Commandments of God and "Towards" the Word of God which does not.
