Acts 24:14 But this I confess to you, that according to the Way, which they call a sect, I worship the God of our fathers, believing everything laid down by the Law and written in the Prophets,
Anytime we see, Paul speak against the law , you can put in one of two categories .
He is either talking about the traditions and doctrines of men, man's law the oral law or the greek law, this is what they did to put man under bondage.
Or he is speaking about the punishment when you break the law, bondage comes upon you that is the result of sin; the law of sin and death, which Yeshua nailed to the cross.
Most of us never knew there are 7 Laws but here there are; Paul is talking about in his writings.

1 Corinthians 3:3 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

1 John 3:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Ecclesiastes 12:14 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. (the only scriptures they had were the Old Testament)
Galatians 3 :10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them.”Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” ),that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Romans 8:2 because through Christ Yeshua the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death

Galatians 5:17 For the flesh craves what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are opposed to one another, so that you do not do what you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit,you are not under the Law. 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery;…
As you read in the verses Paul makes it clear also, if you are lead by the spirit you are not under the law, (Keeping this in mind sin is transgression of the law.)
So, if you are not keeping Yahweh's laws and statutes you are under the law, because there is no law against keeping His laws, however breaking them is another story. If you are truly lead by the spirit you want to please and obey your heavenly father.
Psalm 119:1 Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Yahweh
Ezekiel 36:26-27 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

You are a spiritual Jew.
Romans 11:23 And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
Here is a comparison between the Pharisees and the modern Church:
According to the Pharisees:
The Oral Law was the “truth filter” that was applied to all Scripture, and it is still used by Rabbinic Judaism to this day. The only true interpretation of all Scripture could be attained through this filter. This filter ignored contradictory Scripture.
If a Scripture didn’t fit, they concocted some method of scriptural interpretation in order to make it fit or explain it away.
The seven rules of Hillel, the thirteen rules of Ishmael, the thirty-two rules of Eliezer
Through skillful twisting, the Scripture could be made to say whatever they wanted.
Anyone who disagreed was called a heathen, blasphemer or heretic
According to the modern Church: The “no-law” doctrine is the “truth filter” that is applied to all of Scripture.The only true interpretation of all Scripture can be attained through this filter.
This filter ignores contradictory Scripture.
If a Scripture doesn’t fit, they concoct some method of scriptural interpretation to make it fit or explain it away.
Progressive Revelation, Dispensationalism, Supersessionism, Covenant Theology, Ultradispensationalism
Traditions of the church and church fathers became more important than Scripture.
Even traditions with clearly dubious origins can be overlooked by saying, “That’s not what it means to me,” or, “It’s a mystery.”” “it's the intent of the heart that counts” (Christmas and Easter
Through skillful twisting, the Scripture can be made to say whatever is required.
Jeremiah 17:9 "Who can understand the human heart? There is nothing else so deceitful; it is too sick to be healed.
CONCLUSIONS The “no-law” doctrine has taken Paul’s “hard to understand writings” and interpreted them to mean that the laws of God given through Moses are no more, and in so doing, have elevated Paul’s teachings above the teaching of Yeshua and the very words of God. The filter that should be used is that God does not change, He is not a God of confusion, He doesn't lie, or that scripture cannot be broken, and it is the whole duty of man to keep all His commandments.
Yeshua is the Messiah, not Paul!
Salvation comes through Yeshua, not Paul!
We are to follow the Gospel of Christ, not the Gospel of Paul! This isn’t easy! Paul’s writings are HARD to understand; the apostle Peter said so! We must realize that the writings of Paul are not exempt from these scriptural truths. We cannot ignore or twist his difficult writings to make them support beloved and long-held doctrines. “I have not been able to reconcile “the law is not to be followed by modern believers” with Scripture. The only conclusion I have been able to come to, without going against Scripture, is that the law is still in effect for modern believers, not as a condition of salvation, but as a reflection of how the Father wants us to be a holy and set-apart people, and out of love and obedience to him. “119 Ministries www.TestEverything.net This is an EXTREMELY unpopular stance, but what does the Savior have to say about it? Keeping in mind what Peter said about Paul's letters
2 Peter 3: 16 He writes this way in all his letters, speaking in them about such matters. Some parts of his letters are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 Therefore, beloved, since you already know these things, be on your guard not to be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure standing.…
1 John 3:9 (sin is lawlessness. God calls it evil)
Acts 24 Take these men, purify yourself along with them, and pay their expenses so they can have their heads shaved. Then everyone will know that there is no truth to these rumors about you, but that you also live in obedience to the Law.
Matthew 5:19 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.
Matthew 15:14 Disregard Them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”
Hosea 4;6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
The Blessings of Obedience
Deuteronomy 28:1"Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the LORD your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth.
