Most Christians that are aware that the woman who was caught in the act of adultery was asked by Yeshua (Jesus)..."Where are thine accusers?" When she realized they had dispersed, Yeshua said to her "Neither do I condemn thee"..."GO AND SIN NO MORE". That wasn't a suggestion but rather a command(ment). Since the death of Jesus who nailed the law to the cross, God doesn't condemn us anymore and therefore we don't have to bother with those 613 commandments today!
Actually, that particular little story is nonexistent in the original writings. In later Greek translations a story appears in the text of a woman caught in adultery, which was inserted into John 8 as verses 1-11. The story is nonexistent in the Peshitta and does not appear in the four earliest Greek manuscripts of John.
YHWH definitely does expect us to QUIT sinning once we have the Ruach haKodesh (Holy Spirit) inside of us. Unfortunately, many who erroneously insist they can continue to sin because "we are now under grace" don't realize YHWH has certain rules and regulations (Torah) to follow and that those who willfully ignore them will be considered "lukewarm" on Judgment Day (Revelation 3). These include keeping the Seventh Day Sabbath and the Biblical Feasts and eating kosher foods.
Yeshua came to proclaim the Kingdom of YHWH and to do everything His Father commanded. He tore down the fences of man's legalism. Neither He nor His Apostles ever advocated against Torah!
John 12: 44. But Y'shua cried out and said, He who believes in me, it is not in me he does believe, but in Him who sent me.  45. And he who sees me sees Him who sent me! 46. I have come as the light into this world that all who believe in me might not remain in the darkness! 47. And he who hears my words, yet does not keep them, I do not judge him, for I have not come to judge the world but to give life to the world. 48. He who rejects me and does not receive my words, there is something that judges him. The word that I have spoken, it will judge him on the last day. 49. For I have not spoken from my soul, but the Father who sent me. He gave a Commandment to me what I should say and what I should speak. 50. And I know that His commands are eternal life.  Therefore, these things that I speak just as my Father told me, thus I speak. (AENT)
 Y'shua does not bring a new Faith, but reveals the original Faith of YHWH the Father.
 Y'shua proclaims that he came to give life, then he declares that His father's Commands are eternal life! The Father's "Commands" are instruction in righteousness; this is Torah which contains Commandments, Judgments, Testimony and Witness regarding the Kingdom of Elohim. Those who enter into Covenant with Mashiyach are entering into Covenant with his Father YHWH; therefore, it is evil - an outright lie - to teach that Torah is done away with and replaced by a new theology!
 The Commands of YHWH bring eternal life. YHWH's "Commands" refers to all of His Commandments; these are one and the same as every Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of Elohim. These are not Commands only between Y'shua and His Father but they are universal for all souls who will enter into the Kingdom.
 Y'shua speaks the Word of YHWH, not his own words; therefore, he conveys the revelation of YHWH according to the Ruach haKodesh without the baggage of man's religious tradition. Religion has a propensity to reinvent or interpret the Word of YHWH to make it "acceptable" to man's standards; whereas Mashiyach came not to please men, but to honor and bring Glory to his Father.
