No.

That you ask suggests that you are either not a Christian or do not understand Christian theology. But this discussion belongs in PPR and I don't play in that sandbox.

I don't know because I don't know what Mosaic Law is.

It includes purity laws, stoning your bride to death if you find she isn't a virgin, the proper ways to own slaves, death penalties for having differing religious beliefs, prohibitions against mixing fabrics, etc., etc.

I did not know what it is, but a cursory overview suggests there is no way it could benefit mankind whatsoever.

It has been a very long time, so the specifics may be wrong, but I believe Hebrews makes a very strong argument that The Law reveals sin and brings death while Christ redeems and brings life. Bringing back The Law would be a repudiation of the death and resurrection. There are several other passages in the New Testament that essentially deprecate The Law. It is inconsistent with the Gospel to institute Mosaic Law.

But what do I know? I'm a demon possessed freak that needs deliverance.

Sure, that'd be a great idea. Because nobody deserves the right to choose their lifestyle without judgement. :roll:
