Is it true that many Messianic Christians believe that the Hebrew Law is for today?

The real question should be, what did Yeshua (Christ) tell us?

Yeshua stated in Matthew 5:19.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

It seems that Yeshua is telling us that if we break the law and teach others not to keep the law, we will be least in the kingdom of heaven.

So to not keep the law certainly does not sound like God’s best.

Then Yeshua tells us if we keep the law and teach others we will be great.  Not greatest, because He is the greatest.

This one verse seems to be enough reason to keep the law.

However, I have been told that this was only meant for the Jews.  My question to that is, how do you know that is true?  That is typically based on something someone told them.

Or I have heard that Jesus followed the law, but Paul clarified that the law is no longer for today.  If that is true, who do you follow Jesus (Yeshua) or Paul.  But you might want to remember what Paul stated in 1 Corinthians 11:1.

1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Messiah.

It seems that Paul will tell one to follow Messiah, Yeshua first.

Well if you are willing to investigate this further follow the links below.  But if you are satisfied with traditions of the Church Fathers and are not brave enough, ignore the links to follow.
