We live in a world full of hatred, we see it every day in every part of this world. So I find even more difficult to understand a group of so called local Born Again Christians ? Just identifying as Christians is hard the understand, but when they claim that they know more about sinners than the rest of us?. Homosexuality is a sin according to their religious beliefs, such sinners are not welcome in their churches of communities.. What happened to the words in the Bible that states (judge not lest you be judged) or God so loved the world?. There are many other examples in the holy book, however, there is also many ways to interperate them. The born again Christians go out of their way to use only their own narrow opinions. Last year the owner of Skips Fish and Chips protested that gays etc should have no rights. He protested that he didn’t think they should be allowed to parade or fly their flag. Especially when one of these flags cast a shadow on his property. Lots of his fellow born againers came to his support. Many of us who disagree also came to expose his homophobic fanaticism. One one thing if find amusing in all of this is after the born againers have showered us with their Bible quotes . They suddenly disappear back into the safety of their church womb at the mere mention of Leviticus from the Old Testament. It’s an interesting read and very hard to dispute I will be happy to share with you on this blog
Perhaps Paul (Skips) will answer the list of questions listed below. After all he is a self proclaimed expert on all matters pertaining to the Bible and sin.
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from you. and will try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God’s Laws and how to follow them.
1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are from neighbouring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Americans. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Americans?
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
5. I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this? Are there ‘degrees’ of abomination?
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I’m confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.
Your adoring fan, Now Paul and your Born again Supports its over to you!!!!!!
God Bless and keep reading
