QUESTIONS: Is the Law Abrogated?

Many Christians have said that we are no longer under the Law but under Grace. But, what does that mean? Some might go so far as saying that since it’s the Spirit that convicts us, we no longer need to abide by the Commandments. But, then how do you know you have sinned or not? Is it based on whether you feel bad? Is there then no use for the Law, at all? If not, then what use is the Old Testament? Was it Jesus or Paul who taught that we are liberated from the Law? And if Paul, then why does he carry more weight over Jesus’ strict and heightened view of the Law? Does the Gospel really stand in opposition to the Law? Or, in other words, did God make a mistake in giving his chosen people the Law since it doesn’t have a salvific value, but only merely to show their wickedness? Is this what the Gospel does: it abrogate God’s laws?

  1. If course we are under the law (commandments) but in our sinful nature we in no way can be perfect in the law. Only Jesus did this. The law convicts of us of our sin, the Spirit is a helper in keeping us from sin. But we are condemned by sin and only through the Grace of God, who sent his only son to do what we cannot, are we saved. He sacrificed his son for us. This plan was foretold before the law was written so how can it be a mistake?
