Of course it also says the opposite, or at least Jesus made excuses for not following certain restrictions, like not stoning someone for working on the sabbath. You can find extreme views on both ends of this spectrum around, like the biblical literalists, or just about every christian who give it almost zero thought.

To me, the important way to look at it is that christianity flows out of the OT, it makes no sense without adam and eve and original sin, to discount it is to dissolve the foundation christianity is built on.
