Intent of the Law
Laws are any written rule, principles and regulations established by a nation applicable to its people, whether in the form of legislation or of custom and policies recognized and enforced by judicial decision.
The laws are made to remind those who violates it and there is no need to remind the non-violators when they are actually not breaking the law.
What then is the intent of the law? It was an addition made because of sin.

But it’s not only the devil that should be blamed, for a man has its own lust when tempted and enticed.
Jas 1:4 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed.
Jas 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
In the beginning, man was made by God upright for the laws were put into their minds and written into their hearts.
Eccles 7:29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.

But there are ten thousand laws and there’s but one important law needed for our salvation.
