Are you living by faith or by the law?
Lisa, the question you've just asked is a false dichotomy (a logical fallacy), which makes it a trick question.

It is NOT an either/or question as there is no way to have Faith without keeping The Law just as there's no way to keep The Law without Faith (James 2:17-26).

So who do you think wants us to obey The Law/stop sinning? Father or Satan?

If Satan wants us to sin/disobey The Law that God gave us, why would you think God doesn't want us to obey His Law please? Particularly given how frequently God and Christ both state we MUST keep The Law/Commandments?
You have tunnel vision...
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whomsoever believes on Him will not perish but have ever lasting life. John 3:16
Doesn’t talk about obedience to the law does it?

It isn’t a trick question..you’re answer points to you not really knowing God.

As for your question Lisa, refer to what Freeman said...
You honestly ask us these questions on purpose just so you can try to switch everything up and blame us for being wrong which as a result you're right, but not exactly since you're a false hypocritical person. Girl, I will happily accept if you told me you needed prayer because it seems like you need it BADLY. It's funny how although you've been acting like this, I've been turning the other cheek, and asking you if you need me to pray for you and once I say that, you ignore it and continue with your ridiculous words which I'm positive is on purpose because you LIKE doing childish things like this. I still can't believe a mere 15 year old has to tell you this, I really wonder how you were raised.

Anyways,

Disregard this girl, anyone who's reading this please because look carefully at her words, she's turning Freemans words around and wrongly accusing him as not knowing God, her daily routine. Also yes, I can predict the first thing you're going to say is, "1. I'm not a girl, 2-" you don't act like a mature woman, you wanna act like you're a little girl, I'll go ahead and talk to you like one. The only thing nearly everyone in this entire site has been doing to you is scolding you for your horrible words, and I know for a fact you're understanding it but willingly continue to be petty.

Do you claim to know God Lisa while claiming God doesn't want us to obey The Law/Commandments?

Are you claiming to be "in Christ" without keeping The Law/Commandments please?

Why would I keep the law that Jesus fulfilled?

So you admit you are not keeping The Law/Commandments?

Did Christ come to destroy The Law? Didn't Christ tell us that heaven and earth would pass away before the slightest punctuation mark passed from The Law?

Right..the law will be here for unbelievers...why would it disappear?

I live by faith..
Galatians‬ ‭3:11-12‬ ‭NASB‬‬
“Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, “THE RIGHTEOUS MAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.” However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, “HE WHO PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE BY THEM.”​

So practice keeping The Law/Commandments and LIVE.

James 2:12-14, 17-18
2:12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the (Royal) Law of Liberty (God's Laws).
2:13 For he shall have Judgment without mercy, that hath showed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
2:14 What [doth it] profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

2:17 Even so FAITH, if it hath not WORKS, is DEAD, being alone.
2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will SHOW thee my faith BY my works.

1 John 2:3-4
2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, IF we keep His Commandments.
2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth NOT His Commandments, is a LIAR, and the truth is NOT in him.

There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

It seems obvious that Apostle Paul was not as precise in his understanding and/or recording of what he learned as he could have been, because he did not spend long periods of time with Jesus, learning directly from Him, like His close Disciples did.

And to be fair to Paul, the below was part of a letter (to the Galatians) that he also didn't know would be published worldwide.

Classic example:

Mark
12:29 And Jesus answered him, The First of all the Commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength and serve Him ONLY: this [is] the first COMMANDment.
12:31 And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other COMMANDment greater than these.

vs.

Paul to the:
Galatians 5:14 For all The Law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as [much as] thyself.

Back on topic, a strange incident has occurred in Syria, with the Syrian regular army firing on Turkey in what the Russians are claiming is a failure of communication on Turkey's part, which Turkey denies.

From: https://www.rt.com/news/479932-turkish-convoy-russian-reaction/

A shelling incident in Syria in which Ankara said six of its soldiers were killed may have been caused by the failure of the Turkish side to warn about the movement of their convoy, the Russian military said.

“Units of the Turkish military conducted movement within the Idlib de-escalation zone during the nighttime from February 2 to February 3 without informing the Russian side and came under fire by the Syrian government troops, which were targeting terrorists west of Saraqib,”the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation said on Monday.

The statement stressed that there are established lines of communications between Russian forces in Syria and the Turkish command. It added that Turkish aircraft did not enter the Syrian airspace after the incident, contrary to some reports in the Turkish media, which said Ankara ordered airstrikes at Syrian positions in retaliation for the shelling.

The Turkish Defense Ministry earlier reported that four soldiers were killed and nine others injured in the shelling incident. The death toll rose to six later in the day.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan responded quickly, promising to continue retaliating heavily to any attacks against Turkish forces in Syria's Idlib Province.

Omer Celik, spokesman for Turkey’s ruling party, rejected the words of the Russian ministry, saying it was “not correct.”

“Turkey is providing regular and instant information to Russia. It also informed them of this latest event,”
he tweeted. “It is not true to say information was not shared. The mechanisms in place were utilized as always.”

------------------------

Turkey has apparently already retaliated.

Turkish artillery, air strikes kill at least 40 Syrian troops in Idlib

Turkey on Monday took revenge for a Syrian attack in the northern province of Idlib, which killed 7 Turkish troops. Turkish artillery and fighter strikes killed at least 40 Syrian troops.

Not if you’re in Christ you aren’t.
Yet you live under the country's legislation, which has made the rich rich and the poor poor contrary to The Laws of God (Deut. 15:4), but a lot of it actually complies with The Laws of God, which is why it's accepted, because there's "enough" truth in it.

E.g. You stop, and stay, at red traffic lights; even when there's no obstructing traffic, while you simultaneously trust Father that He'll keep you safe from accidents, thus complying with amongst:

Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the "I AM" thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6:16 Ye shall not tempt the "I AM" your God, as ye tempted [Him] in Massah.
Mark 22:39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

This further proves that if you take verses too much in isolation, and out of context, and particularly from the so-call Letters of Paul, you limit your comprehension.

What are you talking about? You think God decreed no one should be poor?
Matthew‬ ‭26:11‬ ‭
For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me.

Paul wrote most of the NT..why wouldn’t I take avid letters into consideration?

Deuteronomy (5th Book of God's Law)
15:4 TO THE END THAT THERE BE NO POOR AMONG YOU; for the "I AM" shall greatly bless thee in the land which the "I AM" thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance to possess it:
Matthew‬ ‭26:11‬ ‭
For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me.
An accurate observation, and Prophecy, of people not keeping The Law; then, now, and until The End.

Malachi
4:1 For, behold, the Day cometh, that shall burn like an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the "I AM" Lord of hosts, that it shall leave of them neither root nor branch (nothing).
4:2 But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
4:3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in The Day that I shall do [this], saith the "I AM" Lord of hosts.
4:4 Remember ye and return to The Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, [with] the Statutes and Judgments.
4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the "I AM" (Sura 43:61):
4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

I obey the law, what’s the problem with that?
Exactly; no problem. And you practice faith at the same time, which we can see evidence of.

Edit: But obviously not the whole Law of God.
James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole Law, and yet offend in ONE [point], he is guilty of ALL.

Paul wrote most of the NT..why wouldn’t I take avid letters into consideration?
Not sure what you mean by "avid letters" please?

But more accurately, Paul's confiscated letters (by the Romans) were included in the compilation of Books, that were included in what became known as The Bible.
