3rd Nephi 15:1-9

And now it came to pass that when Jesus had ended these sayings he cast his eyes round about on the multitude, and saith unto them: Behold, ye have heard these things which I have taught before I ascended to my Father; therefore, whoso remembereth these sayings of mine and doeth them, him will I raise up at the last day. And it came to pass that when Jesus had said these words he perceived that there were some among them which marveled, and wondered what he would concerning the law of Moses; for they understood not the saying that old things had passed away, and that all things had become knew. And he saith unto them: Marvel not that I said unto you that old things had passed away, and that all things had become new.  Behold, I say unto you that the law is fulfilled that was given unto Moses. Behold, I am he that gave the law, and I am he which covenanted with my people Israel; therefore, the law in me is fulfilled, for I have come to fulfill the law; therefore it hath an end. Behold, I do not destroy the prophets, for as many as have not been fulfilled in me, verily I say unto you, shall all be fulfilled. And because I said unto you that old things hath passed away, I do not destroy that which hath been spoken concerning things which is to come. For behold, the covenant which I have made with my people is not all fulfilled; but the law which was given unto Moses hath an end in me. Behold, I am the law, and the light. Look unto me, and endure to the end, and ye shall live; for unto him that endureth to the end, will I give eternal life.

The Law of Moses is complete. We no longer have to worry about all the old way of doing things. Through Christ we no longer have to follow the Law. This is a great thing, in that now we have a much clear way to salvation. That way is through Christ and his teachings.

Alma 51:1-4:

And now it came to pass in the commencement of the twenty and fifth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, they having established peace between the people of Lehi and the people of Morianton concerning their lands, and having commenced the twenty and fifth year in peace; Nevertheless, they did not long maintain an entire peace in the land, for there began to be a contention among the people concerning the chief judge Pahoran; for behold, there were a part of the people which desired that a few particular points of the law should be altered. But behold, Pahoran would not alter nor suffer the law to be altered; therefore, he did not hearken to those who had sent in their voices with their petitions concerning the altering of the law. Therefore, those which were desirous that the law should be altered were angry with him, and desired that he should no longer be chief judge over the land;

This is a good example of what we should not do. Just because we don’t like something in the law of God we can’t change it. This is what happened to the church on earth. One person wanted to change something here and someone else wanted to change something there and before you know it we have thousands of churches who believe stuff that is not even close to what Christ taught. People today go to a church where they teach what the person already believes, not what it should be where the go to church to learn what Christ taught.  Remember Christ is the one who wrote the gospel, not a man. How can we change it?
