-Does 1Timothy 1:5,8,9 indicate we should keep the ten commandments law part of the Mosaic Law?

Paul in his letter to the younger Timothy, was advising him to be on the lookout for those who have a firm opinion about that which they obviously understood so little:.1Timothy 1:3,4,7. No doubt some were teaching that the ten commandments were necessary to keep in order to be pleasing to God. 

Then in verses 9 and 10, Paul reminds Timothy that the law was not for a righteous man.(one who is in Christ). The law was to make a man realize that he had sin.(was unloving and uncaring of others):.Romans 3:19,20; 5:13; 5:20

In 1Timothy 1:14 Paul shows that grace is in abundance, not by ten commandment keeping or keeping any other part of the abolished Old Testament law:.1Timothy 1:14 "And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Emmanuel."

Sin.(an unloving, uncaring attitude).does not have hold over anyone in Christ, because they are righteous by the gift of righteousness He gave.(Romans 5:17).and are becoming more loving each day:.Romans 6:14,15 "For sin shall not have dominion over you. For you are not under the law, but under grace. What then? Shall we sin.(live in an unloving, uncaring manner), because.we are not under the law.(and thus having to offer the rigmarole of sacrifices etc. that the law required for sin), but under grace? God forbid."

We are now out.(Romans 8:2).of the Mosaic Law.(Romans 7:7,12).that was a spiritual, holy, just and good law, as its intent was right.(it came from God).and that showed humanity how wrong anything unloving and caring was.

Problem was, man did not have the heart to live by it, and this is how it was planned to be, so we would recognize later when Christ came with a higher form of righteousness above regulation of the physical, that it indeed was a higher form, and we could recognize this because we had the Infinite One's nature in us to do so. This made possible to be into a new attitude, that of a changed heart:.Romans 7:6; 2Corinthians 3:6.

–The old law was holy in that it came from the Creator and was spiritual:.Romans 7:14.

–The old law was just, in that it did what it was supposed to do in showing them all back then in Mosaic Law days.(all the way up until Emmanuel died and rose).where they were wrong.(1Corinthians 15:56).and it showed the need for redemption through Him who was yet to come.

–The old law was good, in that it would keep men at peace and in order with each other, had they followed it, but it was not of their heart back then to do so:.Deuteronomy 5:29; Hebrews 8:10; 10:16; Romans 8:7

So using this holy and just and good law lawfully, meant to use it for the purpose for which it was intended, and that was to make man realize that he was unloving and uncaring, in a sinful attitude as it were, and if he had used it lawfully, it would have shown him that he was guilty of being a selfish person, unconcerned and unloving and that he needed the process begun of changing his heart that was only available through Emmanuel the Christ:.Romans 7:15-25; Hebrews 10:1.

That is using the law.lawfully.(1Timothy 5:8).and moving into the realm of righteousness by faith:.Romans 3:22,25; 4:5; Philippians 3:9

Not using the law lawfully involves sin and sin keeps one still under the law of sin and death:.Romans 8:2; 1John 3:4; James 4:17.

-If the law is done away as explained in the Mosaic Law subject, why does Paul then say in Romans 8:2-4 that the righteousness of the law should be fulfilled in us?

Emmanuel came to fulfill "the righteousness of the law":.Matthew 3:15. That righteousness is a gift.(Romans 5:17).to those who believe.

Paul is here in Romans 8 contrasting two laws; the law of sin and death and the law of the spirit of life in Christ:.Romans 8:2. It's the righteousness of Christ in us that he is encouraging:.Romans 8:1. How to increase this.

This weak.(Romans 8:2-5), unprofitable and ineffective.(Hebrews 7:18,19).law of sin and death many preachers still talk about, has been long ago nailed to the cross as has been said:.Colossians 2:14.

The law of the spirit of life in Christ Emmanuel has replaced it:.Romans 3:26-28; 7:4,6,22; 9:31,32; 2Thessalonians 2:16.

The ten commandments say nothing, apart from honoring your father and mother, about actively going out to love others, having compassion, mercy, etc..Hebrews 10:24; Matthew 9:13. What did Emmanuel say about the result of those who corrupted their lives yet based them on the Mosaic Law?.John 8:37 "I know that you are Abraham's seed, but you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you.".And why would this have been? I mean they at least knew of the Mosaic Law which God had given them?

Many back then, as today, many persons just don't comprehend the purpose of the Old Testament Mosaic Law, which was to point forward to the time Christ would be in the physical:.Romans 10:4 "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes."

The ten were part of the Mosaic Law which was abolished.(2Corinthians 3:11; Ephesians 2:15; again, Hebrews 7:18,19).and which was a law designed to keep a carnal people in a physical nation in some kind of an awareness of God without the Holy Spirit generally being available to them:.Deuteronomy 5:29; Hebrews 7:19; 8:6,10; 10:1,9,16. It was not spiritual, but back then it was better to keep that law and be blessed, than not keep it and have constant trials and heartaches throughout life, which they did, because they agreed to keep it and then found they couldn't and so then they went their own way to their own hurt:.Jeremiah 44:16,17.

People back in Old Testament times never could comprehend the Mosaic Law's purpose and it's the same today for those using part of that law:.2Corinthians 3:16. Most people today are not even awakened to their own marvelous bodies. The ancient law was useless regarding salvation. That took Christ coming to have effect:.Titus 2:11.

What did those in the New Testament era seeking to continue following this now done away Mosaic Law, have to say to Paul about it?.Acts 21:21 "...you teach all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses.(meaning the Mosaic Law), saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs."

Today we are to fulfil the law of Christ a different way.(Galatians 6:2).with Christ in us. This law.(of the sureness of Christ in us).is not a bunch of carnal commandments.(instructions).made for a carnal people.(Romans 4:6,14,15), but rather:.Hebrews 7:16,19.

To be blessed requires this perfect law of liberty. Christ's nature is in you by faith and faith alone:.James 1:25. To live a life filled with curses as it were takes this:.Galatians 3:9-13.
