You are incorrect. God will not dwell in an unclean temple.

Long thread! I didn't read all of it.

The Council of Jerusalem as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles clarified a lot of things for Christians- especially those who weren't Jewish converts. Some things are referred to in the New Testament as being prohibited to believers and are still in effect as far as the Church canons are concerned. We are to abstain from what has been strangled, from blood, from any food and other things offered to idols, and sexual immorality. One could say that these fall in the realm of what some refer to as Noahide laws.

Act 15:19-20
19Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God:

20But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

So, when people throw the OT at Christians, only to say they're not following their religion if they aren't following 622 various laws, they're wrong. If Christians are doing it, they're wrong too. We're not under the OT law. You are correct regarding divorce though.

Besides Christians nowadays pick and choose what they want to follow when it comes to the bible.

Very true. Because many of them are living under the law. If we were loving one another as we would love ourselves, as Christ commanded, and accepting His Grace we would be better examples.

Yet not a single christian lives according to these rules. But I guess it is okay since they can just ask Jesus for forgivance... Does not matter if you murder someone or just lie to someone as you are still accepted into heaven as long as you ask for forgivance...

Maybe the revised pagan government wants us to vote and turn us to rubble and ban our bibles at the same time, while giving us a good deal on a watermelon. One nation. Two systems. Is this bad. Is this China or the United States. There are a lot of fast snakes in the United Nations. Too bad we are busy watching teen squid or mob money.

Juleol are you sniffing the formaldehyde.

Leviticus 19:28 "You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord." So you have a tattoo of Jesus and Mary on your arm? Wow, I'm sure your god will be chuffed to bits!

Problems are in the concept of reading scriptures literally or understanding the inner because the literal is the trap. Thats where God/Goodness/Love/Tao of Goodness becomes the smiter and murderer, in other words, the demiurge.

The things you don't do is harm others. What you eat or wear is irrelevant.

Is the US then a Jewish nation?

You are incorrect. You cannot have the new testament without the old. The new is the fulfillment of the old, and you cannot have one without the other.

With the death of Jesus we came under the new covenant, which predates the old covenant. Jesus is the Righteous King to whom Abraham gave tithe. (Genesis.)

Under the new covenant Love is the commandment. Love God with all your mind, heart and soul and Love your neighbor as yourself.

What sin is, apart from Mosaic law, and was the law prior to Mosaic law, is anything you place before God - anything that violates "love" For every man this is something different.. some men his wealth, some his pride, some his favorite thing.

We give these things up that God asks us to give up. Jesus made it easy, HE carried that burden for us on the cross. Through HIM and the spiritual death to this world, we are able to walk away from the things that God asks us to walk away from - which HE will tell you personally what your sins are after you are saved. He will say, "Don't do this, or you don't need that"

Those are your sins that you need to walk away from.

What God asks from us, is to put HIM first, Love HIM with all that you are, a life of moderation in all things, and Love your neighbor as yourself.

People will mess up from time to time, and if and when you do, you ask forgiveness and start again, and die the spiritual death to this world once more.

That is what Christianity is.

You are speaking of the Levitical Laws given to Moses to establish Israel as a nation set-apart unto God. The Levitical Laws can be divided up into primarily 5 distinct divisions:
1. Civil
2. Sanitary
3. Ceremonial
4. Moral
5. Religious

The purpose of these laws was to separate His people from the surrounding pagan nations and to shepherd His people in proper service to Him until Christ came to earth. The point of the Law was to teach Israel spiritual truths, but they inevitably made the Law their religion, rather than using it to make their hearts right with God. The civil, sanitary, ceremonial and religious laws were absolved in Christ. The moral laws are universal and absolute and represented by Christ's two greatest commandments: Love God with all your heart, soul and mind and love your neighbor as yourself.

Sorry, Christians don't follow Mosaic laws besides the ten commandments, this is one of the reasons Christians are different than Jews.

One is that you should not eat shellfish....... so, no lobster for you silly fundamentalist Christians, sorry.

Whale or porpoise, or salted cheerios in milk. If Joe Biden’s woman touching habit is not forbid in the bible then hey give me a platter of goat spleen and marmalade rabbit liver. Pass the napkin.

Doesn’t make a ham worth of difference what your religious beliefs are. Ninevah is getting telegraphed. God frowns on funky asian awesome. And the mainstream news that I have been watching is not trustworthy. Shocking. And crazy times we are living in, says Kennedy. Let them eat pizza. There’s food poisoning in 215 stations. My favorite thing in the world is the magic, says Gerri willis.

Come on you know. NOW. Won’t that be a hoot. I think the world is going to end. Aliens, says Kennedy.

Is God expunged? The scary thing is that we are at code red that is.
