Here and now, in the age of grace, we Christians are constrained by no law other than the Laws of Christ:
1. Do NotJudge One Another! Even as Leaders and Teachers in the church! The Spirit of Christ IS Our Judge! 2. Love God with all our hearts, souls and physical strength. 3. Love One Another as we would have others love us. And 4. Love One Another As Christ Himself Loved Us, putting the needs of others ahead of our own.
Keeping the Laws of Christ as we are led by the Holy Spirit of God will inevitably get us into trouble with the Pharisees and other "still carnal" believers surrounding us, not to mention the critics of Christ and His elect. They will inevitably stumble over our lives in Christ even as they stumble over the completed work of Christ. This is the cross we are called to take up daily.
