So, what else do you ignore from the Old Testament?

I ignore nothing from the OT. It was written for our understanding.

Romans 15:4  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

But I only look to the NT for authority in worship.

What other parts of the old law do you keep? Dietary restrictions? Stoning of someone who works on the sabbath? Selling your children into bondage?

There are days I'd entertain an offer.

Look. I posted the Salvation Army timbrel as a bit of a tongue in cheek post. I don't dance in worship OR in prayer. Okay?

But you cannot provide for me a Biblical source that expressly forbids dance in worship. Can you?

Dietary restrictions?.....hmmmmmm......


Acts 15:19-21 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood. For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day. Then pleased it the apostles and elders, with the whole church, to send chosen men of their own company to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas; namely, Judas surnamed Barsabas, and Silas, chief men among the brethren."

When James says to abstain from things strangled, and from blood what does he mean?
