Some people today believe that they are the only ones God is going to save and the rest are going into hell. See 'All To Be Saved'. 
    These Pharisees looked at Jesus as one out to destroy all they believed in. Jesus tried to set them straight on just why He came -Matthew 5:17. These Pharisees feared their positions were threatened by Jesus (and, no doubt, that their income would consequently decrease) and even in spite of one of their own telling them the truth, they just never understood. They took counsel to murder Jesus -John 11:45-53. Thugs they were, under the cloak of righteousness. 
    However one scribe saw it differently Mark 12:28-34. The word of God creates distinction -Hebrews 4:12; John 15:18,25
    Christ came to enable us to have an intimate relationship with the Father, as mentioned above in the John 17 scriptures and Matthew 22:37-40-(in the love Jesus talks of here, is fulfilled any and all of any law God was ever concerned with).
    The law came to make known to all that it (the law) wasn't enough to have a solid relationship with God, that we were still unrighteous, even a new born baby who had never done anything wrong, because of Adam's sin imputed to all the human race for all in all times -Romans 3:10

Before the Mosaic Law, people had this 'Adamic curse' upon them of death and didn't know why, no doubt assuming as people today 'you live – you die': 

Romans 5:12-14 "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world and death by sin and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned-(word studies elicit the meaning of 'for that all have sinned' as 'all have been in sin'; and of course, didn't know that it was because of Adam's error. That's why your sins never did count with God anyway. So all the guilt religion made you feel was unnecessary. His plan was that sin would come into the world by one man and be imputed unto all of us, so that also, by one man, righteousness would come into the world and also be imputed unto all of us -Romans 5:14-21; Galatians 3:22). For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression-(Adam didn't believe what God told him and ate of the wrong tree's fruit anyway), who is the figure of him that was to come."

The ten commandments part of the Mosaic Law had curses attached to them -Exodus 20:5,7,12; Galatians 3:13

Belief in God is our righteousness and this is not of ourselves, it is God's gift, or we wouldn't and couldn't believe -Romans 4:3; James 2:23; Ephesians 2:8

For those today who think that they should be keeping parts of the Mosaic Law, they, in effect, are walking in their own commandments -Colossians 2:21-23
    In this and other critical errors, they are actually sinning (original Greek for sin is 'to miss the mark' of a relationship with God) while they may feel that they are doing right in God's eyes. This is deadly to a relationship with God. 
    Now again, there is nothing wrong with living by the ten commandments as a life's moral guide. The danger is when we feel that because we are keeping them, we are fulfilling an obligation made to God and therefore stand as righteous or even unrighteous if not keeping them well enough. In all this, we're missing the most important parts. Well, what are we then to do? Fulfill the law! 
    Which one? The better one than the one Christ came to redeem us from -Galatians 4:4,5; Romans 10:4. The better one than the one that had faults. The better one than the weak and unprofitable one that was taken away -Hebrews 7:18,19. The better one that Abraham was righteous by, in spite of him doing just about everything wrong a guy could do -again, James 2:23; Galatians 3:6. The one that comprised it all -Romans 13:8-10.
    Some Christians have today also, been bewitched (Galatians 3:1-3) by an alternate gospel, still not fully comprehending the impact of the marvelous new covenant.
    The old covenant Mosaic Law was abolished -Romans 7:6; Ephesians 2:15; Hebrews 7:18,19. A higher form of righteousness replaced it.-...continues
