The Ceremonial Law/The Ten Commandment Covenant

The Ceremonial law pointed to the sacrifice of Jesus and was fulfilled.  Circumcision is now of the heart, washings are baptism, Jesus, the clean, became unclean so that we may be clean.  The Sabbath Feast Days were fulfilled:

PASSOVER: Our Passover Lamb
UNLEAVENED BREAD:  He was without sin
TABERNACLES: He "tabernacled among us"...

If the Ceremonial law had not been fulfilled, we would, still sacrifice animals.

CEREMONIAL LAW:

1.  Is called, "the law contained in ordinances." Eph 2:15
2.  Was spoken by Moses. Lev 1:1-3
3.  Was written by Moses in a book. 11 Chron 35:12
4.  Was placed in the side of The Ark. Deut 31:24-26 (to show it's temporal nature)
5.  Was nailed to the cross. Col 2:14
6.  Was abolished by Christ. Eph 2:15.


THE TEN COMMANDMENT COVENANT:

1.  Is called, the "royal law" Ja 2:8.
2.  Was spoken by God. Deut 4:12,13
3.  Was written with the finger of God. Ex 31:18
4.  Was placed inside The Ark. Ex 40:20; Heb 9:4
5.  Is to "stand forever and ever." Ps 111:7,8
6.  Was not destroyed by Christ. Mt 5:17,18.

The Ten Commandment Covenant deals with our character and is used by the Holy Spirit in our on-going process of sanctification.

No.  The Old Testament makes no distinction between "ceremonial law" and "ten commandment law."  That is an arbitrary and anachronistic distinction that is not inherent in the text.  All the law was law that defined and distinguished Israel as per the Mosaic covenant.  There is no "obsolete ceremonial law" and "persisting other law."

I agree, when Paul speaks of the law he uses examples of both the Ten Commandments and ceremonial laws.

The Ten Commandments and Civil Laws given to Moses have always been part of the Christian religion.

The more that Protestants protest the law the more lawless they become.

This can be witnessed in America where civil and criminal laws based on Christianity are being contested and overturned one by one.

They have?  That was the intention?  Even in, say, the Galatian churches?

Why not? Jews were the primary leaders of the first churches and the writers of the NT. They knew their history and the laws of God.

Besides the Gospel, and before Paul wrote his letters to them, the only scriptures they had were of the law and the prophets.

Without the Pentateuch, the Gospels do not make any sense.

You're right that without the Pentateuch the Gospels make no sense.  That doesn't mean that we're living under the Mosaic covenant.  Now read Hebrews.

John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Read the Ten Commandments.  Which of them are we free to ignore or violate?

Does Psalm 119 not belong in the Christian Bible? Is it only of historical interest and relevent to Jews alone?
