We know that the law was to lead us to Christ:

Gal 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

We know that now that Christ has come that we are no longer under the schoolmaster/law.

But what that means and what people think that means are often two very different things.

Come lets reason together.

The law said that we are to love the lord our God with all our heart.

It says to not worship Idols etc.

If Paul had meant by not being under the law that we no longer have to obey or do these things then we are now free to hate and worship Idols. However most of us know this is not so.

So it is not wrong then for someone to tell another who claims to follow God to not worship Idols if they are worshipping Idols. Does that now mean they are putting them under the law? no of course not it is just plain fact.

Some suggest that we only need obey the laws that are written in the new testament. This shows a major flaw in the understanding of the new testament.

The new testament is the testimony of those who knew Jesus and the power of God. but it is very clear in the writings about Jesus and the apostles. That they found the basis of their teachings in the scriptures/Old Testament.

as it is written:

Mar_7:6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrits, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

There are many more and they are all referring to the only writings that were considered scriptures at that time. The Tanakh or Old Testament. So when you hear Jesus or a Disciple say Love the lord your God with all your heart, They are not giving a new command but rather teaching the reality of the Scriptures already given.

When they say though shalt not steal they are simply quoting the command found in the law. They are not creating something new.

anyway that is enough blessings.
