RE: About Matthew 5:17 (Jesus said he has not come to change law)
The most rational explanation I have heard is that Jews remain under the law and that is what Jesus was talking about, but that gentiles were never bound by the law. Therefore the old testament laws continue to apply possibly even to Christian Jews, but not to Christian gentiles.

Still, it's a stretch - and It's not clear why rules would then apply differently to different people.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
