Dear Matt,

I don't think Paul thought there was a seperate "Christian law" apart
from the Torah. He believed the function of the law was to drive us to
despair of pleasing God by our own efforts so that we receive Christ
and His grace. He would not have understood Baha'u'llah's statement,
"Obey My Law for love of My Beauty."
