Christians should live in Freedom through the wonderful gift of Grace. The Old Testament law showed us our wrongs—then Christ became the curse of all our wrongs and took every one of them to His grave! He rose again, but our wrongs are all forgotten.
This is why the temple veil was torn apart at the time of Jesus crucifixion. “And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, He gave up His spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.” (Matthew 27:50-51)
