Did Paul advocate violating the Law of Moses?

Theological question concerning Paul’s motives and the Law of Moses: “Shaul teaches against all forms of EVIL ACTS as against the OT Laws. Did he really teach to OBEY or Break the Law?”

Christian response,

Paul never taught anyone to “break” the moral Laws of God but Paul taught that mankind cannot achieve righteousness (a right standing) with the Father through attempts to keep a Law that only condemns void atonement (Romans 3:20) as all of mankind is under the condemnation of sin (Romans 3:23) and all have sinned and our best works seeking our own righteousness are as a filthy menstrual cloth in the nose of our God (Isaiah 64:6); therefore, in order to attain righteousness through the Law one must obey the Law in absolute perfection (Romans 10:5; Leviticus 18:5); otherwise, to violate one jot or one tittle of the Law is to be guilty of violating the whole Law (James 2:10); therefore, this begs the question, what can mankind do to avoid the wrath of God concerning sin and death in Hell?

God the Father, in His compassion and love, sent forth the Son into Time approximately 2000-years ago born of a virgin woman (Genesis 3:15; Matthew 1:26) thereby circumventing the sin-nature of our father Adam (Romans 5:12-21)…this permitted Jesus via the hypostatic union of God and man (Philippians 2:8) to obey the Law in absolute perfection (Matthew 5:17; John 8:46) thereby becoming our ONLY available blood atonement for sin (Hebrews 10; John 14:6; Matthew 26:28); the Father put your sin, my sin, upon His Son who suffered and died in your place and Jesus did the “work” of righteousness for you and by believing in Jesus as your God and Mediator for sin (John 3:16-18; Romans 10:9-10), you can have Jesus’ perfection, His righteousness, imputed-infused into and over your life (Romans 4:5-11) and the Father via the Covenant of Grace promises to forgive your sin, to not see your sin and declare you “not guilty” and the Father will seal this Covenant by giving you His Holy Spirit to indwell you forever and secure you in His LOVE and forgiveness for eternity as He walks you daily in His will, His obedience via the process of sanctification as His Law is now written upon your heart and infused within your mind via the Spirit (2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:13-14; Galatians 5:16; Hebrews 8:10; 10:16).

In conclusion,

What the Law could not do as it is weakened by the sinful flesh and the sin-nature and the Law is void atonement for sin, God the Father did by putting our sin upon His sinless-Holy Son and the Son paid the price, kept the Law, did the work, for you, for me, and you and I can access the eternal benefits of the Son’s sacrifice for us by “believing” in Him as our Lord who died to pay our sin-debt…a debt the Law could not atone for and a debt we could not pay through our own human effort (Romans 8:3).
