Did Jesus teach conformity to Law or grace and mercy through faith? Should we teach others to conform to Law or the Spirit?
Jesus entered Time under Law (Galatians 4:4) and came to proselytize those under Law in the freedom of grace and mercy through faith (John 3). If the Law was the path to righteousness and holiness, Jesus would not have needed to suffer and die for our sin (Galatians 2:21).
The Law is NOTHING but a definer of sin and culpability (Romans 3:20) and a Tutor to point the children of Israel to their need for a Messiah and once Messiah came and fulfilled the righteous mandates of the Law for us, we are no longer under Law but under grace through faith in Jesus via the Holy Spirit (Galatians 3:24; Romans 6:14).
People intuitively know the law…it’s on their heart (Romans 2:14-15)…what people need is redemption by faith in Jesus and the indwelling Holy Spirit guiding them in God’s will through the conscience via sanctification; therefore, our efforts as servants of God the Father must be to point others NOT to conformity to Law but faith in Jesus and allow the anointing of the Holy Spirit to create in them the New man and the New woman seeking obedience out of love for God not in fear of law and punishment.
