Torah, why stumble over it?

To understand where we are at, at this point please read this first

So then so far with the first part of verse 7 we find the Torah means so much more than just plain "law".  The Torah is that which points us in the right direction to walk for our lives. It leads us with instruction that would be wise to follow as it is Yahweh Elohim's instruction for His set-apart people.  Not only that, the Torah is PERFECT.  It is that which converts the soul.  Being perfect it is whole and without blemish.  It was never intended to provide us with our salvation by following it.  Salvation is that which can only be obtained by faith, the inward working of Abba in our hearts, minds and souls.  The Law is the outward working of our faith.  Yahshua told us in the New Testament that if we love him (having obtained our salvation through faith) we will obey His commands (showing our faith through following His instructions for our set-apart lives).
The LAW brings us back or converts us to following the instructions of our Abba or Heavenly Daddy.  Why then would we be so quick to say the Law does not apply to us today?  It is the instructions given to us by our Father who is in Heaven.  They are dear to His heart.  If we truly desire to please Him then why tell ourselves we don't have to follow His instructions?  So many people enjoy the Psalms of David yet they stumble over the many times he says how precious is the Torah, law, instructions. 
Psa 1:1 Blessed is the man who shall not walk in the counsel of the wrong, And shall not stand in the path of sinners, And shall not sit in the seat of scoffers,
Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the Torah of יהוה, And he meditates in His Torah day and night.

Psa 1:3 For he shall be as a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That yields its fruit in its season, And whose leaf does not wither, And whatever he does prospers.

Joh 14:15 "If you love Me, you shall guard My commands.1Jn 2:3 And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands.1 Footnote: 1See 3:6. 1Jn 2:4 The one who says, "I know Him," and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 1Jn 2:5 But whoever guards His Word, truly the love of Elohim has been perfected1 in him. By this we know that we are in Him
