Shedim: grumpfuff: I know you didn't ask me, but I can answer for you. Short answer - depends entirely on which branch of Christianity you're talking about. I forget where exactly, but somewhere Jesus basically says he did not come to replace the laws. So, some groups point to that and say ALL the laws are still needed. On the other end, some say Jesus replaced all of them - I know of at least one school of theology that Jesus dying on the cross removed original sin as well, rendering most of the laws unnecessary(as well as baptism and a few other things). Then you can find things on pretty much any point of the spectrum between the two.

So depends?

Thanks for answering. I read about it from here and I just wanted to get another source. I was only half-expecting STRYPWERSWINE to answer me (or even acknowledge they'd read my query in the first place).

I'm surprised at how many people are using argumentum ad dictionarium in this thread. Maybe it's the only "argument" they feel they have left...

Gave it a quick read. Not a huge fan of RW but it seems mostly correct. I'd disagree with some details, ie there's never really been a consensus on what can ignored and what can't. It all depends on who you ask. There is literally a world of literature about just this question out there if you're really curious.
