    What do this mean, Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Is the Law done away with?

      In reading the context of that passage read the verses before and after.  11-13 prepares a state of righteousness and continues in 14.  By "doing" righteousness sin will have no power over you and you will not be under the law of sin which is death.  However, in doing righteousness you will be under the law of grace which is obedience unto righteousness.

        so you are not saying the Ten Commandments is the law, you are saying the Law of sin an death which is different from the Ten Commandments.

        Well put my friend. Many people take biblical text out of context, therefore subverting the true meaning of what is being said. I applaud you for your answer here.

      No, the Law is fulfilled in two ways:

      1. Through Y`shua: the righteous requirements of obedience, sacrifice/ shedding of blood.
      2. Through you living as the righteousness and in the righteousness and with a righteousness mentality --therefore, the seed of Life aka the testimony of Y`shua is planted in you. If the Will of the Father and Testimony, bears fruit, then you are indeed living in grace and by grace.

      Simply said, you now have a testimony and are a witness, as Y`shua was, of the Fathers Glory and Will. If you do not have or bear fruit of a testimony, the vessel (body) must be removed, else the spirit in you die forever. This is what the Spirit testifies and the Spirit is Truth.

      I understand that what Paul keeps talking about, is how it is not necessary for Gentile worshipers of God to become citizens of the Jewish nation and convert to their culture in order to participate in worshiping God, because religion and state should be two different things... the gentiles are justified as servants and adherents because of they share the same faith that Jesus had in God. God's law is not abolished... but the laws of Jewish culture do not apply to non-Jews.
