Law of Christ Replaces Law of Moses

The Law of Christ replaced the Law of Moses. With a change of priesthood came a change of law. The law of Christ is the law of faith to the end. Faith is a gift of God. The gospel power convicts the chosen of sin and places them under the New Law of Christ:

The elect are justified by faith in Christ, not by works of the law. Roman's 3:28

1 Cor 9:21: To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law.

Galatians 6:2: Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

James 2:10: Whoever keeps the whole law yet stumbles at one point is guilty of violating the entire law.

James 2:12-13: Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom,because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Hebrews 7:11-12: 11 If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that priesthood—why was there still need for another priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? 12 For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also.

The Lutherans and Protestants still believe in keeping at least part of the law of Moses. The reason is they could never see the law of Christ in the scriptures. The First Baptist Confession of 1646 authors did see the law of Christ. See section IV (9).
