    Because we are not under the Mosaic Law. But there are many good principles to be learned from the Old Testament.

    As a a matter of law, in these New Covenant times, it is. As a matter of good morals, and in an effort to avoid sin, following the Ten Commandments is a good thing. The reason: The grace, mercy and love of Jesus Christ is superior to any law and much, much more effective at obtaining our salvation.

    CLAIMING "maturity" IN Christ; it is bad to follow the ten commandments!

    24 Wherefore the law (((WAS))) our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

    25 But after (((THAT FAITH))) is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster" (Galatians 3:24-25).

    And (((THAT FAITH))) is a "Spiritual gift" (I Corinthians 12:9) one receives (((AFTER))) Holy Spirit baptism (I Corinthians 12:13).

    AFTERWARDS GOD "puts HIS LAW in our hearts and minds" (Hebrews 8:10-12) as HE "gives commandments to those HE has chosen" (Acts 1:2).

    WE DON'T NEED "A SCHOOLMASTER" ANYMORE!

    BUT TODAY'S CHRISTIANS WOULDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT BECAUSE

    THEY ARE

    JUST PLAYING CHURCH!

    One even believes "love is the end of the law" when "For the LOVE OF GOD is shed abroad in our hearts (((BY))) the >>>HOLY GHOST"<<< (Romans 5:5)

    BUT WITHOUT HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM (((HE CAN'T))) "SHED HIS LOVE ABROAD IN OUR HEARTS"

    Consequently Romans 13:10 is talking about "THE LOVE OF GOD" received (((AFTER))) Holy Spirit baptism and NOT mankind's superficial love!

    THEY ARE

    JUST PLAYING CHURCH!

    For I DELIGHT in the law of God >>>AFTER THE INWARD MAN"<<< (Romans 7:22). "...written NOT IN INK, but with THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD; not in tables of STONE, but in fleshy tables OF THE HEART" (II Cor 3:3).

    OTHERWISE; YOU'RE JUST PLAYING CHURCH!

    It's a poor attempt to say a profound truth, and accidentally goes into error.

    Here's what they should be saying:

    "8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

    As Christ said, not one letter of the moral Law, such as the ten commandments, is canceled. Instead, we are redeemed from our failures and wrongs!!

    It's very good to follow the 10 commandments, but just don't think it's enough. Only Christ is enough.

    And here is how He has restated all the Law:

    "Love one another, as I have loved you"

    "In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you"

    Believers in Jesus are not under the law. Believers in Jesus are under grace. The ten commandments are law. We have grace, and loving others as we love ourselves. Love is better than law. Romans 13:10.

    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.

    .

    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

    Because the Ten Commandments probates idolatry, and the worshiping of other gods

    which means that it prohibits Christians from worshiping Donald Trump.
