URS let me addressed a few of your quotes:
"Grace works with God's Law" - Never, I've already told you that "grace" is on a higher level than the "law".
The LAW said, “do not murder” (Exod 20:13; Deut 5:17)
Jesus said, 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Matthew 5:22 (KJV)
The LAW said, “do not commit adultery” (Exod 20:14; Deut 5:18)
Jesus said, 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:28 (KJV)
So on and so forth….
“Paul meant a different Grace” – Never, there is only one “grace” not several that Paul preaches.
11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. (KJV)
Grace = JESUS CHRIST
Salvation = JESUS CHRIST
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV)
There’s only one saviour and that is the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ulaya the problem here is that you’ve never been saved to know the difference.
You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. (Galatians 5:4) NKJV
The Gr. word for “estranged” means “to be separated,” or “to be severed... something.” Paul’s clear meaning is that any attempt to be justified by the law is to reject salvation by grace alone through faith alone. Those once exposed to the gracious truth of the gospel, who then turn their backs on Christ (Heb. 6:4–6) and seek to be justified by the law are separated from Christ and lose all prospects of God’s gracious salvation. Their desertion of Christ and the gospel only proves that their faith was never genuine (cf. Luke 8:13, 14; 1 John 2:19).
The Purpose of the LAW
24 Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. (NKJV)
24. Wherefore. So that. The law was our schoolmaster. A schoolmaster (Gr paidagōgos) is really the trusted boy-leader or child-escort employed to attend a boy from six to sixteen and who watched over his morals and manners. He was not the teacher and he had no authority to punish. His business was to see that the child went to the right place and did the right thing. Such was the purpose of the law, to prescribe right conduct and impose certain checks. The law convicts of sin, restrains from sin, and condemns for sin; but the law cannot save from sin. Bring us to Christ. The God-given purpose of the law has led us to Christ; its work is finished. That we might be justified by faith. The ultimate purpose of the law.
25. Faith. The faith in Christ. No longer under a schoolmaster. The born-again believer is no longer under the boy-leader, who has been discharged from service. We are not under the law, but under grace (Rom 6:15).
3:24 The law is pictured as a guardian and guide of children, or as a tutor. 13 This emphasizes the thought of teaching; the law taught lessons concerning the holiness of God, the sinfulness of man, and the need for atonement. Here the word is used to describe one who exercises discipline and general supervision over minors, or the immature.
The words to bring us are not in the original, but were supplied by the translators of the King James tradition. If we leave them out, the verse teaches that the law was a Jewish guardian up to Christ, that is, until the coming of Christ, or with the coming of Christ in view. There is a sense in which the law preserved the people of Israel as a distinct nation by regulations concerning marriage, property, foods, etc. When “the faith” came, it was first announced to this nation that had been so miraculously kept in ward through the centuries. Justification by faith was promised on the basis of the finished work of Christ, the Redeemer.
3:25 The law is the tutor, but once the Christian faith has been received, believing Jews are no longer under the law. How much less Gentiles, such as the Galatians, who were never under the tutor! Verse 24 teaches that man is not justified by law; verse 25 teaches that the law is not the rule of life for one who is justified. 
(Gk. paidagogos) (3:24, 25; 1 Cor. 4:15) Strong’s #3807: The Greek term means “custodian” or a person who attends a child. In Greek households a faithful servant was given the responsibility of taking care of a boy from childhood to puberty. The servant kept him from both physical and moral evil, and went with him to his amusements and to school. Paul used the word to say that the law functioned as a child-custodian. The law acted as an outward check on desires, thus making the consciousness of sin more acute. And since none of us is able to deal with sin by ourselves, the law guides us to Christ, our only Rescuer and Savior.

13 (3:24) The Greek word paidagōgos (whence the English pedagogy) literally means a “child-leader.” Such a person, usually a slave, was to see that the child got to and from school. Sometimes he taught as well.

God Accepts Us on the Basis of Christ, Not on Whether we Keep a Certain Day of the Week
The Sabbath (or any other distinctive practice) can deceive a person and subtly reduce the importance of Jesus Christ. The tendency is to think, "I please God because I keep the Sabbath. I am counted as one of his people because I keep the Sabbath." But God knows us as his people through Christ, not through a day of the week. The Bible says that the only reason that we please God is because of Jesus Christ:
"He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life" (Titus 3:5-7).
No matter how many laws we keep, we are sinners, and the only reason that we can be saved is because Jesus died for our sins. But a focus on laws, especially laws that make us different from other people, tends to put the focus back onto ourselves—and what we do. For some people, the badge of betterness is a certain style of worship. For others, it is a certain belief, or the avoidance of alcohol, or a style of dress. For Sabbatarians, it is the Sabbath. Not everyone falls into this trap, of course, but the more distinctive the doctrines, the more likely that people will value them too highly.
Suppose we come to the Day of Judgment and we are asked, "Why should we let you into the kingdom of God?" How will we answer? Will we talk about what laws we kept? Or will we trust in Christ alone? Will we try to claim part of the credit? The Bible says that our only basis of salvation is faith in Christ, and that no one has anything to boast about (Eph. 2:8-9). Our works don’t count for anything; our only hope is Jesus Christ, and any doctrine or practice that obscures this fact is an enemy of faith. Anything that tempts us to look at what we do, tempts us to take away some of the trust that we should be giving to Christ.
Christians try to obey God, but our obedience does not count anything for our salvation. There are many reasons to obey God (faith in his wisdom, gratitude for his mercy, personal love for him, desire to spread the gospel, etc.), but salvation is not one of them. Salvation is a gift; obedience is a response—and that is for laws that are still valid in the New Testament era. If obeying a valid law counts for nothing, what good does it do to keep an obsolete one?
Of course, Christians may refrain from work one day a week if they wish. Spiritual disciplines like that can be helpful to a person’s spiritual growth, but they can also become obstacles, if people begin to think that these particular practices make them better than others. And these practices can become spiritually dangerous, if people think that everyone else ought to measure up to the way they worship God. Christians should not place themselves "under the law" (Galatians 3:25) as if the laws of Moses still had authority over them.
Jesus criticized people who taught requirements that God did not have: "You experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them" (Luke 11:46). When we teach requirements, we need to be very careful.
The Sabbath has nothing to do with salvation, and nothing to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It was never part of the message of the New Testament church. The message is always one of liberty, never one of restrictions on a particular day of the week. God accepts us because of Jesus Christ, not because of anything that we do. It is by grace, not works. We are to trust in Christ for our salvation.
URS please understand the purpose of the LAW. It is there for the "law breakers" or sinners to point them to Jesus Christ. Once a person have received Jesus Christ into their hearts as their personal Saviour and Lord, the LAW has fulfilled its purpose. Now the believer "in Christ" lives by the "law of Christ". The law of Christ is a much higher standard than the law of Moses. It has been stated so many times that the LAW cannot save anybody. The LAW will tell a person of their need for a saviour but it doesn't tell that person how to be saved. Once a person is saved by GRACE there is no need to go back living by the LAW. To live under the LAW is to live under condemnation because that's what the LAW was designed for.
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. Romans 3:20 (KJV)
The Proper Function of the LAW
1 Timothy 1:9-10
9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; (KJV)
The proper use of the law is to demonstrate human sinfulness and our need for the Good News that Christ has saved us from bondage to the law and our own sins.
The law is not made for a righteous person. If a man is righteous, he does not need a law. That is true of the Christian. When he is saved by the grace of God, he does not need to be placed under the Ten Commandments in order for him to live a holy life. It is not fear of punishment that makes a Christian live in a godly manner, but rather love for the Saviour who died at Calvary.
The apostle goes on to describe the type of people for whom the law was given. Many Bible commentators have pointed out that there is a close connection between this description and the Ten Commandments themselves. The Ten Commandments are divided into two sections: the first four have to do with man’s duty toward God (godliness), whereas the remaining six have to do with his duty toward his neighbour (righteousness). The following words seem to correspond to the first section of the Ten Commandments: For the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane. ... The expression for man slayers is linked with the sixth commandment: You shall not murder. Here manslayers refers to murderers, and not just to a person who kills another accidentally.
The words for fornicators, for sodomites describe immoral heterosexuals and homosexuals. Here they are linked to the seventh commandment: “You shall not commit adultery.” The phrase for kidnappers is obviously related to the eighth commandment: “You shall not steal.” For liars, for perjurers (or false swearers) connects with the ninth commandment: “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.”
The final words and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine are not directly related to the tenth commandment, but rather seem to sweep back over all the commandments and summarize them.

Ulaya your question has been answered again and again by scriptures yet you still refuse and reject it. Ignore it at your peril. Please REPENT before it is too late.
The Annulling of the LAW
18 For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its weakness and unprofitableness, 19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. (NKJV)
7:18 The law which set up the Aaronic priesthood has been annulled because of its weakness and unprofitableness. It has been canceled by the advent of Christ.
In what sense was the law weak and unprofitable? Was it not given by God Himself? Could God give anything that was impotent and useless? The answer is that God never intended this to be the ultimate law of priesthood. It was preparatory to the coming of God’s ideal priesthood. It was a partial and temporary picture of that which would be perfect and final.
7:19 It was also weak and useless in the sense that it made nothing perfect. The people were never able to go into the presence of God in the Most Holy Place. This enforced distance between God and man was a constant reminder that the sin question was not settled once for all.
But now a better hope has been introduced through which we draw near to God. That better hope is the Lord Jesus Himself; those who have Him as their only hope have perfect access to God at any time.

Ulaya I've already told you what you need to do if you want to discuss TITHE.
There's a lot of people reading this discussion would like to share their knowledge about it. Do that so that we can all participate.
"only a few thousand will qualify to receive God's free given Grace" - I think your figure is out of date.
GRACE is being available to "whosoever" (John 3:16).
The only requirement for a person to qualify for "grace" is to be a sinner.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NKJV)
Now that's GRACE in a nutshell. Its the individual's decision whether he/she receive it or not.
If an individual chooses NOT to receive it but feels they must "WORK" for it to earn it.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 (NKJV)
No one can boast about their salvation because no one did anything to earn it. It is given or made available to everyone freely by God through the sacrifice of the Lord Christ on Calvary.
It is free gift of God, none of us deserved it but because of God's mercy He made it available to all. Our part as sinners is to simply receive the "gift" and appropriate it into our live.
But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away. Isaiah 64:6 (NKJV)
Jesus Christ's sacrifice on Calvary was perfect NO OTHER work(s) can be added or subtracted from it.
Christ’s Offering is Once-for-All
1 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. 2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. 3 But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. 4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins. (NKJV)
The fourth feature of the New Covenant to be emphasized is Christ’s once-for-all offering. The author has frequently stated this feature in the preceding chapters (cf. 7:27; 9:12, 26, 28), but now it becomes the focal point of the discussion.
10:1–4. The truth of Christ’s one-time sacrifice is emphasized by means of relief’a distinct contrast with the Mosaic system. The Mosaic system is first described as a shadow and not the very image. This figure was used earlier at 8:5. There, however, the tabernacle itself was described as a shadow of the heavenly tabernacle; here the levitical sacrifices are designated as a shadow of Christ’s one-time offering. The two are not of the same essence or image (Gr eikōn); the later sacrifice is the reality of which the former was a mere shadow (cf. Col 2:16–17). The sacrificial system of the Old Testament was planned and ordained of God; and it fulfilled its temporary, imperfect role. Its role, nevertheless, was that of a picture and prophecy of Christ’s later, totally efficacious, sacrifice.
The repetitious nature of the Mosaic system serves as another means for highlighting the once-for-all sacrifice of Christ. Those sacrifices had to be offered year by year continually. They served as a reminder that sin needed continued cleansing. If the levitical system had cleansed the Old Testament people, then, according to verse 2, they would have had no more conscience of sins and would have ceased to sacrifice. This must not be misconstrued to suggest that once one has been born again he will have no remembrance or consciousness of sin in his life. What is true is that the Christian knows peace with God (Rom 5:1) and peace from the guilt of sin. He must still deal with daily sin (I Jn 1:6–10). As Dods aptly states: “The sinner once cleansed may, no doubt, be again defiled and experience a renewed consciousness of guilt. But in the writer’s view this consciousness is at once absorbed in the consciousness of his original cleansing” (Dods, p. 342). Thus, the guilt of sin is removed for all time for the New Testament saint. For the Old Testament saint that guilt had to be removed yearly.
Yet, one must not imagine that there was no forgiveness possible for the Old Testament sinner. The Scriptures clearly state otherwise (Lev 4:20,26,31,35). What the sinner did lack was a full and final cleansing; he did not know the assurance of permanent forgiveness. As Kent says: “Day of Atonement offerings brought forgiveness ‘up to date,’ but subsequent sins required further sacrifices and the passing of another year necessitated the cycle to begin again” (p. 185).

The LAW condemns you BUT has no POWER to SAVE you
1 Corinthians 15:56-57
56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. (NLT)
1 Corinthians 15:56-57
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (KJV)
15:56 Death would have no sting for anyone if it were not for sin. It is the consciousness of sins unconfessed and unforgiven that makes men afraid to die. If we know our sins are forgiven, we can face death with confidence. If, on the other hand, sin is on the conscience, death is terrible—the beginning of eternal punishment.
The strength of sin is the law, that is, the law condemns the sinner. It pronounces the doom of all who have failed to obey God’s holy precepts. It has been well said that if there were no sin, there would be no death. And if there were no law, there would be no condemnation.
15:57 Through faith in Him, we have victory over death and the grave. Death is robbed of its sting. It is a known fact that when certain insects sting a person, they leave their stinger imbedded in the person’s flesh, and being thus robbed of their “sting,” they die. In a very real sense death stung itself to death at the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and now the King of Terrors is robbed of his terror as far as the believer is concerned.
