But these commandments you mention here were laid out during the Old 
Testament of the Bible.  Many of the things that were God-ordained during 
the Old Testament (including the slaughter of a lamb to cleanse sins, not 
trimming the corners of the face and binding the Word to your forehead - 
the actual Scriptures for these escape me now) were effectively negated (if 
you believe in Christianity) by Christ's death on the cross.  These were 
all signs of respect to God or as atonement for sins, which, as the New 
Testament lays out, are no longer necessary because Christ's death now 
atones these sins.
