What is the purpose of the law? These are the commandments that are considered old testament or not in effect today- Is that correct? How do we pick and choose which commandments we keep? Just because something is mentioned in the Bible doesnt mean God condones it.

[Act 13:37-39 KJV] 37 But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption. 38 Be it known unto you therefore, men [and] brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: 39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
[Rom 3:20-22, 28, 31 KJV] 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God [which is] by faith of Yeshua Messiah unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:... 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.... 31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
[Gal 2:16 KJV] 16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Yeshua Messiah, even we have believed in Yeshua Messiah, that we might be justified by the faith of Messiah, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. [Gal 3:11 KJV] 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, [it is] evident: for, The just shall live by faith. [1Cr 15:56 KJV] 56 The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law. [Rom 7:7, 12 KJV] 7 What shall we say then? [Is] the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.... 12 Wherefore the law [is] holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
[Rom 10:1-4 KJV] 1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. 4 For Messiah [is] the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. τ λος telos termination, the limit at which a thing ceases to be (always of the end of some act or state, but not of the end of a period of time) the end- the last in any succession or series- that by which a thing is finished, its close, issue- the end to which all things relate, the aim, purpose
[Gal 2:17-21 KJV] 17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Messiah, we ourselves also are found sinners, [is] therefore Messiah the minister of sin? God forbid. 18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20 I am crucified with Messiah: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Messiah liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness [come] by the law, then Messiah is dead in vain.
[Jud 1:3-5 KJV] 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Yeshua Messiah. 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
According to a recent ABC News poll, lots of people get to go to Heaven. 75% of Americans believe they are going to Heaven. A scant 21% think only Christians go to Heaven. 60% of Americans believe that both Christians and non- Christians go to Heaven. 80% of American women believe they are going to Heaven. 70% of American men believe they are going to Heaven.
The Barna Research Group conducted a study of both Christians and nonChristians, asking them what they thought the criteria was for getting your "ticket" to Heaven. 6% of them said that "God loves everybody," and so everybody gets in. 15% of them said that "good" people get to go to Heaven. 15% of them said that if you keep the 10 Commandments you get in. 43% of them said that if you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior, you go to Heaven. [1Jo 3:4 KJV] 4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
[1Jo 1:8-10 KJV] 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. [Psa 119:142 KJV] 142 Thy righteousness [is] an everlasting righteousness, and thy law [is] the truth.
God gives us laws about food- Has the chemical makeup of food changed? Has our bodies evolved to better digest unclean things? God gives us laws about resting- Are we better equipped to not rest these days? Our generation is the most tired, stressed out, burned out, and depressed generation and it keeps getting worse.
Of the one thousand fifty (1,050 or 100%) pastors we surveyed, every one of them had a close associate or seminary buddy who had left the ministry because of burnout, conflict in their church, or from a moral failure. Nine hundred thirty-five, (935 or 89%) of the pastors we surveyed also considered leaving the ministry at one time. Five hundred ninety, (590 or 57%) said they would leave if they had a better place to go-including secular work. Eight hundred two (802 or 71%) of pastors stated they were burned out, and they battle depression beyond fatigue on a weekly and even a daily basis.
Billy Graham- The Ten Commandments are just as valid today as when God gave them to Moses over 3,000 years ago. Jesus said, I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law (Matthew 5:18). Yes, its true we live in a much different world. But if anything, this means we need the Ten Commandments even more, for we live in a time of great moral and spiritual confusion. How can we know what is right or wrong? There are only two ways: either we make it up on our own–or we depend on God to show us. But God knows what is best for us, and when we reject His will for us, we end up in moral and spiritual chaos.
There are laws that concern women There are laws that concern men There are laws that concern priests There are laws that concern soldiers
Just because something is mentioned in the Bible doesnt mean God condones it. What is the difference between Having multiple wives- (Abraham, Jacob, David, Solomon, etc. Marrying within family- (Abraham & Sarah, Lot & daughters) Divorce- (it was not so from the beginning) The eating of flesh- (what is Gods best diet) Slavery- does God condone it or does God give laws to make slavery not the way the Egyptians and other nations did it?

21:1 Now these are the rules that you shall set before them. 2 When you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall serve six years, and in the seventh he shall go out free, for nothing. 3 If he comes in single, he shall go out single; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him. 4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out alone. 5 But if the slave plainly says, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free, 6 then his master shall bring him to God, and he shall bring him to the door or the doorpost. And his master shall bore his ear through with an awl, and he shall be his slave forever.
