The law fosters independance from God

"The legal principle (the law) requires man to carry out commandments. A person living under law must know the law and then must obey it. So, man’s knowledge and man’s effort are both required. This type of situation fosters man’s independence from God. Can you see in this what seems to have been typified by the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden? To live by such knowledge simply means that if one only knows what to do then one can do it. Thus man can be righteous by his own efforts and is independent from God."

Seekers of Christ

Bear in mind, when say "law", i mean the 10 commandments as well as any "rules and regulations" as stipulated be church leadership of today...these rules and regulations will be laid out for the believer as a means of growing closer to God, earning His blessing or growing in spirituality...
