True. No one can live up to the Laws. They can only follow it best they can. And when people do lapse, they can repent. God forgives after all. Remember the harlot who was saved from stoning after committing adultry? She repented! The idea of repentance exists in both Judaism and Islamic religions which have strict religous laws.

Now you say that no one can hopefully follow the Law. Does that mean God made a serious error of judgement by imposing it in the first place?

And if God expected everyone to obey the Laws, then why were punishments prescribed for those who persistantly broke it?

Also the idea of christ dying on the cross can be disputed. Other gospels (non-canonical)state that christ was stoned to death, or did not die at all.
What was the meaning of the sign of Jonah? Jonah himself was not dead when he was inside the belly of a whale.

When Paul expounded on the meaning of the verse regarding "fulfilling the law" he was really giving his own view and interpretation on it.

So you say that Jesus "absolutely not" did away the Law while Paul did.

Who are christians really following?
