Why the “written code” (Sinai Commandments) kills without hope but the Law of the Spirit is LIFE – eternally. 2 Corinthians 3:6
The “letter kills” (the written code given Israel at Sinai) because it only defines our sin but provides no atonement for that sin…only hopelessness (Romans 3:20) because the letter, in order to attain righteousness (a right standing, covenant, with the Father) through it, demanded perfection (James 2:10) and man is under the condemnation of sin (Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12); therefore, the letter curses anyone seeking righteousness through obedience to same (Galatians 3:10). If Torah is your ticket to eternal life, you will perish in Hell (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:20).
The Christian is not under law but under Grace (Romans 6:14) through faith in Jesus as Messiah (Romans 10:9-10); that is, the Christian does not chase letters, edicts, days, diets, but the Christian lives by the teaching, daily sanctification, of the Holy Spirit who indwells them (Romans 7:6; Ephesians 1:13-14) subsequent establishing covenant relationship (New Covenant) with the Father by faith in the Son, Jesus Christ (John 3).
Therefore, the Christian does NOT live daily chasing letters that are subjective and easily rationalized away by the sin-nature but the Christian walks by the Spirit via a redeemed conscience and the “natural, moral, law of conscience” (Romans 2:14-15), written on our heart at conception by our Creator, is enlivened through the “new creation” in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), that redeemed conscience and the law that governs it is made alive by the indwelling Holy Spirit and the Law of the Spirit of life (Romans 8:2) is applicable, readily available, to discern every moral decision encountered by the Christian daily; therefore, the Law of the Spirit is infinitely superior to the Law of sin and death that could never save or offer hope (Romans 8:1-3).
Torah is NOT the answer to sin’s condemnation or eternal life,
If I never observed Torah, my eternal relationship with my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, would be undeterred as I am NOT redeemed by the Law and I am not sanctified by the Law given the lawless (Romans 3:20; 1 Timothy 1:9)) but my salvation is assured by faith in the One who kept the Law for me and has imputed HIS lawful perfection, righteousness, into and over my life by faith in Him, Jesus Christ, as my Messiah (2 Corinthians 5:21) and my Law is the Spirit of LIFE who indwells me and sanctifies me through my redeemed conscience via the natural law of conscience written upon my heart (Galatians 5:16; Romans 2:14-15) and my obedience to the Father’s will manifests through the presence of the Spirit’s “fruit” in my life; against same, THERE IS NO LAW (Galatians 5:22-24).
