Yes and no. Christ frequented the temple to worship and, in fact, went into a rage when he saw the money changers defiling the timple and subsequently drove them out with a whip. Why would he do so if he cared nothing for the temple? Granted, he often clashed with the religious leaders only in that he exposed their hypocrisy. This, however, did not cause him to throw away the Torah or abandon the temple or the things of God.
My question to you is, do you want to do the will of God or your own will? If God be God he must have a work here on this earth to reach out to those in need. Do you want to be a part of this outreach? You see the religious leaders in the time of Jesus were more into themselves via social position and income rather than reaching out to those in need. This was one of Christs pet peeves and he blasetd the religious elite time and time again for such a pompous attitude.
