you make no sense,
commandments of God shouldn't be enforced by magistrates (or forced in any way), they either are kept with Love for God by His faith through
us or not kept at all, the Spirit of the Law takes care of all that, the old precepts that were added due to hardness of the hearts are passed away, Mark 10:5, Colossians 2:14, those written ordinances (like death
sentence for adultery for example) are gone, the Spirit of the Law goes beyond the physical action and letter
into the attitude of the mind as Jesus taught, But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
it confirms God's commandments not throws out the baby with the bath water.
