The Laws of Moses were given to teach the Israelites that they could never redeem themselves by obeying it. As no man is perfect enough to keep all its statutes.
For example, who goes out of the city, take a stick, dig a hole, crap in it and then stay outside of the city for as long as the Law subscribes? I haven’t seen anyone doing that over the past fifty-odd years. Get the point?
As, breaking one law is breaking all. Some really try very hard but nobody will ever get perfected through it. The Law only came very long after the people became rebellious and obstinate. But God is slow to anger and quick to forgive. Still, He gave the Law with one purpose only: to show the people their hard-wired imperfection.
So, people took the Law and made religion of it. Even when God came in the form of Jesus and fulfilled the Law, people still kept at it. As some found identity in the very Law that proves imperfection.
Jesus came, as predicted and documented through the ages, to redeem, to wash away sins. He is the Creator and had always existed. He didn’t only begin to exist at that first day of Sukkot about two thousand years ago. No, He only appeared in physical form by then.
But then Rome came and made a new religion out of Jesus and teaching things different to what He taught or His followers in Jerusalem taught. Rome taught a different, altered Gospel. And much of this also is part of Protestantism. Those shouting the loudest really are staunch followers of Rome.
A quasi religion was started and prophet became profit. Sadly so.
Teachings of Paul got taken out of context and new very rigid laws made. Even without authority or cause.
So, Jesus freed us from the yoke but we rush to put it on our backs again. Bear in mind that Eden was without the 635+ laws. The Lord walked with man and there was no division. This is what Jesus came to restore: direct access the Paradise way.
If only people could see this, shelve their religions and just started walking with our Lord. As we were created to do in the first place.
