Did Jesus tell us to keep the law under the provision of grace?

Update:

Whoever, therefore, shall break one of these. least commandments, and teach others to do so, shall be called least in the Kingdom of. Heaven; but whoever shall do and teach them. 

Matthew 5:19

    Prior to Jesus' death and resurrection, the Old Law remained fully in force. Afterwards, the New Covenant and the Church entirely replaced the old law, in every way. If that were not the case, no "New" Covenant would have been required. Nor would the crucifixion. The sole governing authority of the New Covenant is the Holy Catholic Church, which was given the power of binding and loosing, as well as the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, by Christ himself. Only that which the New Covenant Church authoritatively decided to readopt or readapt (from OT times) made the transition from old to new. Nothing else. The Holy Catholic Church remains the primary channel of God's grace on earth, with Jesus as its' head and the Holy Spirit as its' constant advocate and Spirit of Truth.

    "These" commandments are not of the law. They are cited commandments of Christ's, which follow, and in some instances, contradict and nullify points of the law.

    He must have for why would Jesus abolish having to follow the strict Old Testament laws and regulations knowing the destruction it would cause to the societies of His followers which is what's been happening to Christian societies ever since we have come to believe this. The only way to stop the downfall of our societies is to go back to enforcing these strict Old Testament laws and regulations in our societies or else this downfall will only continue to get worse.

    Perhaps the "law" of Gal. 6:2.
