|Did Jesus Do Away With The Law? No.|
Some people have seemed to indicate that the NT (New Testament) eliminated the law. That's not true. Be careful that you don't accept rationalized supposition to interpret Scripture. You can rationalize anything, but if you believe that God will give the same revelation to everyone who's willing to submit to Him and ask for revelation, then the teaching of Scripture is clear:
Here are some Scriptures that back this up. There is a Bible on this site.
There is no way of salvation except through Jesus. John 3:18
Freedom is progressive, rather than complete and instantaneous. 2Corinthians 3:18
Without Jesus, we "can do nothing." John 15:5
Human generated righteousness is "as filthy rags." Isaiah 64:6
If we do anything pure and righteous, it is God's grace in us that does the work. 2Corinthians 9:8
When we turn from sin and to Jesus, we are new creatures. 2Corinthians 5:17
If we are tempted to sin, we need to disregard the flesh and walk in the Spirit. Romans 8:1
If we slip, we are forgiven, we get up and begin to walk in the Spirit again, but we certainly don't identify with our sin. We identify with Christ and His righteousness in us. Romans 7:16
Jesus didn't get rid of the law.
Matthew 5:18 "Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled."
Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill."
The New Testament is clear that "there is salvation in no other One [speaking of Jesus]; for there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
"He who believes on Him [Jesus] is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God." John 3:18
There would not even be death without sin: Romans 5:12 "so death passed on all men inasmuch as all sinned."
God's law is love. Romans 13:9 "Do not commit adultery; do not murder; do not steal; do not bear false witness; do not lust;" and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this word, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
