The Scriptures never tell us that only repeated moral commands are still in force...that's pure presumption.
And if that was the case, since the prohibition against beastiality is not made in the NT your logic would lead us to think that it was no longer against God's moral commands.

The unity of both the OT and NT covenant is clearly taught in Scripture…
  • Its promise was the same (Ex 19:4-6 cf 1Pet 2:5,9; Jer 31:33cf 2Cor 6:16)
  • Its condition was the same – faith (Gen 15:6 cf Rom 4:3)
  • The object of this faith was the same – Christ (John 8:56; Acts 2:25-32; Heb 4:2)
This is why Christians are made partakers of the blessing of Abraham (Gal 3:8,9,14)
