The Laws of God are clearly the Ten Commandments. We already don't keep them--Thou Shall Not Kill (not murder, not any other legals ways of killing). All are equally wrong under the ten commandments.

That is a similar mistake to that which the FREEMAN make when they endlessly espouse Magna Carta.

I believe that Jesus repealed the Commandments and said "Love thy neighbour."

I make no claim to special knowledge of theology. However, I just asked a friend, a retired parish priest, who says that the idea that Jesus abolished the Ten Commandments is based on a misunderstanding of passages in the New Testament.

An internet search will provide you with plenty of reading matter on the subject.
