[I've not read through this entire thread... but have skimmed the last few pages, but have not seen the following...]


Romans 7:1-4 - [to/for/about "the Church WHICH IS HIS BODY"] -

"1 Or are you ignorant brothers (for I speak to those knowing the law), that the law rules over the man for as long as the time he is alive? 2 For the married woman is bound by law to the living husband; but if the husband should die, she is cleared from the law of the husband. 3 So then, if she is to another man, the husband being alive, she will be called an adulteress; but if the husband should die, she is free from the law, so as for her not to be an adulteress, having been to another man.
4 Likewise, my brothers, you also have been put to death to the Law through [/by means of] the body of Christ, for you to belong to Another, to the One having been raised out from the dead, so that we should bear fruit to God."





____________

[yet, the following is also true (for Israel and Israel's "FUTURE")...]

Matthew 5:18-19 -

18 For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth shall pass away, not even one iota, nor one stroke of a letter, shall pass away from the law, until everything should happen.

19 Whoever then shall break one of the least of these commandments and shall teach others the same, he will be called least in the kingdom of the heavens; but whoever shall keep and shall teach them, he will be called great in the kingdom of the heavens."




[note: the phrase "the kingdom OF THE heavenS" is earthly-located, and related to "the promised and prophesied EARTHLY Millennial Kingdom"... that they were still asking Jesus about (re: its TIMING), "post-resurrection," in Acts 1:6... and to which He responded to their Q in referring to its "TIMING" (which they did NOT grasp), not re: its "nature," which they understood correctly]

Of course it is a Command of Christ and so? How does this abrogate the responsibility to keep the Commandments? Or does this give you license to kill, commit adultery, steal, profane the Sabbath and curse God's name? If you want a life of unrest and misery, just go ahead and break God's Law.
You have a choice. You can work at your understanding of commandments. Or you can come to Christ, in faith.

Galatians 3:24-26
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
