Is it the ten commandments that sets us in the way of God.(the ways of love and compassion)? -Psalms 85:13
     Does Jude, one of the apostles, in writing to Christians, say to look to the ten commandments to keep them in the love of God and into eternal life? -Jude 1:21
    Do the very last words in the Bible tell us anything else but grace is important? -Revelation 22:21
   Relying upon any of the promises from God to come to you through law keeping is tantamount to making the promises ineffective. More: Romans 4:4; 5:2.
    In talking about being perfect and measuring up to the utmost, the spiritual stature of Christ, Paul says nothing about tithing, or any part of the Mosaic Law including the ten commandments -Ephesians 4:5,13. Why measure up? 
    Christ dwells in us by faith, not keeping the Mosaic Law's parts that some Christians today feel we need keep to remain in a right relationship with God -Ephesians 3:17; Galatians 3:2. It's only through faith by the grace of God that we have access to the Father and are saved. Nothing else! -Ephesians 3:12; Ephesians 2:8
    It took the only righteous One to ever to walk the Earth – Jesus – to come in the absolute perfection required by the law in order to fulfill it.(it was incomplete).without any deviation whatsoever: Matthew 5:17,18 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law-(some  people {Pharisees, no doubt} in the multitudes He was talking to were probably thinking that He came to wipe out, to destroy, their coveted law with all its rules, regulations and traditions)-or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily.(or, 'in truth').I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot.(smallest bit)-or one tittle.(the minute point or stroke added to some letters of the Hebrew alphabet to distinguish them from others which they resemble; hence, the very least point; today, the dot over the i).shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."
    Are things passing from the law now? -Galatians 3:24-26
    The gift of righteousness couldn't be given until 'someone' had it to give -John 17:4; Romans 5:17-19.
    Jesus talked of the law. He was born and brought up under it -Galatians 4:4. He had to understand what it was that He was to take us out from obligation to -Galatians 4:5
    Christians keeping the ten commandments today as a point of Godly obedience, are, in effect, trying to be as righteous as Christ was, without, or perhaps, even after accepting the gift of righteousness He made possible by His life and death. This is tantamount to rejecting Him. 

Ephesians 1:7 and Matthew 26:28 show we have redemption from all sin only through Jesus' blood and this as a gift. So never think that because you have done bad, now you should do good, so that God will accept you again. It is through Jesus' blood and nothing else that you are redeemed -Hebrews 9:12; 1Peter 2:24; Isaiah 64:6. It is His gift to those who accept it. 

Regarding a spiritual relationship with God: In the new covenant, only faith in Christ pleases God -Hebrews 11:6
    Paul had the same concerns in his day to deal with. See 'Alternate Gospel'. The mix of New Testament faith and grace with Old Testament laws is deadly to spiritual life, splits the personality.(schizophrenia).and is the main reason why 70% of those in mental institutions are, sadly, born again Christians. Having done their utmost to keep themselves right with God by keeping the ten commandments, church going, tithing and the like, many become disillusioned after experiencing  heartache after heartache. Something is seriously wrong. They have done their best, yet have fallen from grace into sin. The true meaning of 'sin' is 'missing the mark'. They have missed the mark of the righteousness of God by faith and faith alone.
    Many Christians are not 'reigning in life' because they allow their hearts to be regulated by the expectations of, the church, others, and even self imposition of erroneous concepts. In this they miss the 'abundance of grace' to reign in life as the expression of Jesus as their unfolding character -Romans 5:17. One thing that would help is to become more like the Bereans -Acts 17:10,11.....continues
