distance I have to ask, what do you believe exactly? Do you believe that Jesus is God?  Do you believe that he died, was buried and was physically resurrected so that we can have eternal life?

Christianity isn't about 'psychology', it's about something happening in the world, a real fact, that changes absolutely everything. The reason we don't obey the rules in deuteronomy is because of this fact. Jesus fulfilled everything promised to the world through Israel, redeemed us through his death and resurrected, and only in Him can we find eternal life with God. He is the way now. This is why the Bible is so important, it is testimony about these events *really* and truly occurring. This isn't on par with Buddhism or anything else. There is only ONE way for us, through Him.

Christianity does exist in the world with buddism and Islam etc, but sadly those of other faiths have not found the one way that leads to life and that is through Jesus. Jesus himself said that He is the only way to the Father and we here believe that. Again not at all the politically correct lies that say 'anything goes', and that 'all faiths lead to God'.
 We pray that those of other religions or none will find THE way and many many are. There is really exciting news of many many muslims in the middle east, for example, getting visions and dreams of Jesus and coverting, and I am sure that will happen more and more.

In regards to Duteronomy, The phrase that Jesus spoke of fullfilling the prophecies, also spoke that he did not come here to destroy the law. That means that the law is still valid, if Jesus himself followed it, why shouldnt we? Obey, I used the phrase dead on, you are being a hypocrite by saying im not faithful because I only follow what I choose while you are doing the exact same thing while in denial that you're doing it.

Deborah, I consider myself a Christian. By that I mean that I follow the ideals and principals taught to us by Jesus to the best of my ability. I believe that he was the incarnation of the living god, and that he died upon the cross for our sins as the final sacrifice.

Look, I'm not here to stir up a mess. I'm not here to have one or more people tell me that my relationship with God is invalid and treat me ill because they cannot fathom anything different than themselves. If one wishes to debate, again, I have no problem talking ideas, philosophies, etc. When you get down to finger pointing and name calling, you're not doing your faith any justice and I refuse to partake in it. My faith was never in question to me, but I validated it for those who have asked, which is by far more than you deserve. I hope all of you find peace and happiness on your path and I hope it leads to a fruitful life, but this beligerent attack on someone (I'll mention names...OBEY) is nothing short of disrespectful and tasteless. Argue the points, not the faith. Good day.l

But if you read Matthew 7:12 it tells us exactly what the Law and the Prophets are:

"Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 7:12)

And by the way, if you believe that Jesus insisted we keep all the laws of Deuteronomy, then why don't you do it? Isn't that hypocrisy?

1 Corinthians 10:23 ""Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive." or "You say, "I am allowed to do anything"--but not everything is good for you. You say, "I am allowed to do anything"--but not everything is beneficial."

The law was given to the Jews.  Jesus was/is a Jew. (the same yesterday, today, ...)

If you are a Jew then by all means keep the law. (anything still applicable - see below)

Not all the law CAN be obeyed unless you live in the land of Israel and there is a functioning temple.   Other parts are irrelevant under the New Covenant. 

Do you have a method for determining WHICH commands (of the 613) are to be followed ver batim, which are modified by the New Covenant and which are excluded altogether?

First let's not confuse love, (an action by Jesus example),  with the effects of love, (an emotion). With this in mind I want to ask you question.  If your spouse asks you to stay home from church,  spend your tithes on bills, cheat on your taxes  or turn away a stranger that needs your help at a time when it may be inconvenient for you, who will you choose to honor?
