Controversial topics are and have been a big part of our society all throughout history. One of the most controversial topics in history is the Bible. And inside it there are many hard things to understand that many people have one opinion while others may think in another way. One of this issues encountered in the Bible being if Christians are suppose to follow the Mosaic Law or the law that God gave to the Jews through Moses which consists of many rules and laws that the Jews should obey back at that time. In my opinion I strongly believe Christians are no longer under and not required to follow the Mosaic Law because it is impossible for humans to fulfill the Law without Jesus, also we now are saved through Jesus grace and our faith not…show more content…
And the part that the Law misses is Jesus and salvation through him and he came to this earth to fulfill it. As it is stated in Matthew 5:17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” He said this in my opinion to emphasize that completing the law is impossible thus salvation is a really difficult thing to achieve without Jesus as he tell us in Matthew 5:20 “For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven” (Bible Gateway NIV).

We not under the Law anymore because it is not possible for us to complete all that the Law states us to do with human effort. Also because, we are not required to follow it because Jesus came and died for our salvation. And, we are not under the Law because the Law draws non Jews away with many rules that are totally based on Jews. To sum up, we should not follow the Law because we don’t apply to
