Should Christians Obey the Old Testament Laws?

From the Show

How is it that Christians are supposed to be blessed and loved by God and at the same time suffer?

Here's what Asaph says in Psalm 73 (paraphrase), “my feet almost slipped,” in other words, I almost kind of gave up on it all when I saw the prosperity of the wicked, “and then I went into the temple, I went into the sanctuary of God, and all the pieces fell into place. I realized that there's a judgment coming.” Wow, how did all that fit into place just by walking into church? Well, he saw all of the instruments in the temple, the sanctuary, that pointed to Jesus Christ, the coming judgment, and also the coming salvation. And he said, “I belong to the Lord. Who have I in heaven but you? You are my God, you are faithful to me.” — Michael Horton​​​​​
