The law is not a compass or map

The law was given to Jews under the old covenant but they couldn't keep it, later Jesus walked the earth and we have a new covenant which is open to all. (Hebrews 8:7)

If you want to live under the law and Ten Commandments, stop eating pork and shellfish, don't go to work on Saturdays or do any chores, follow every single rule and make animal sacrifices if you miss it! Stop trying to pick the few rules that work for you while you reject and ignore the others.

We are no longer under the law, we are under grace! Be led by the Spirit, not by the law. This is God's best for you. He will be our God and write the laws on our heart. (Hebrews 8:10)

If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law (Galatians 5:18)
