  • Question on Levitical Laws: Why Did God Forbid Blending Threads?

    Bring the Books ^ | 9/28/2013 | Adam Parker
    Mark Driscoll has attempted to briefly answer a very pressing and important question that should be on the radar screen of each and every Christian. The post is titled "Does God hate cotton blend T-shirts?" and deals with the prohibition against mixed threads in Deuteronomy 22:11 and Leviticus 19:19. Deuteronomy 22:11: “You shall not wear cloth of wool and linen mixed together.”Leviticus 19:19: Nor shall you wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of material.” Driscoll, in his post, deals very superficially with the above question and basically ends up appealing to the classic three-fold division of the...

    Dr Laura Schlessinger is a US radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. A few years back, she said, rightly, that homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstances. An open letter to Dr. Laura was penned and posted on the Internet. It has since done the rounds: ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Dear Dr. Laura, Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I...

    A commenter in the earlier post about Exodus International is checking to see if I am ashamed of Leviticus 20:13 yet, which I am not. But before proceeding, let me quote that verse in full. If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them (Lev. 20:13). This passage is the Word of God, and before moving on to how we are to receive and apply it today, let us by which I mean all Christians...

    Apologies if this has already been postedAs you sit down with your family on Thanksgiving and consider offering a prayer of gratitude, be aware the turkey at the center of the table may have already been "blessed" in the name of Allah. Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America's most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company's whole turkeys are without being labeled as such slaughtered according to Islamic "halal" standards. "Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, 'Bismillah allahu akbar'...

    As gay couples began marrying on the day New York became the sixth and largest state to recognize same-sex unions, politicians Sunday made clear whether they were wedded to the policy or not. Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty said he didnt think all domestic relationships are the same as traditional marriage, on CNNs State of the Union. After host Candy Crowley reminded the former Minnesota governor that gay marriage had been legal for a year in Iowa, a key campaign battleground state in which Pawlenty is heavily invested, he said: We want to maintain traditional marriage elevated in the eyes...

    The Good Friday—Easter Sunday Question How do the biblical three days and three nights after Jesus Christ's crucifixion fit between Friday afternoon and Sunday morning? Or do they? by Wilbur Berg Consider these important facts. First, Easter Sunday is traditionally revered as the day of Jesus' resurrection—although the Bible clearly states that He had already risen before Sunday dawned in the city of Jerusalem.Second, even though Good Friday is generally observed as the traditional day of His crucifixion, Christ Himself told the disciples that He would be in the grave for all of three days and three nights. How can...

    On June 17th, 2008, California legalized same sex marriage. Only three days later, on June 20th, lightning storms ignited more than 1,400 fires throughout the state. As of this writing there are over 1,700 infernos all across the state that have burned down well over half a million acres of forest land. The current situation is certainly a catastrophe of Biblical proportions. The strange thing is California's fire season doesn't even normally begin until late summer. Is there a relationship between the commencement of same sex marriages and the fires that are burning down the state of California? Is it...

    Judge Clears Way For Same-Sex Marriages BY DANIELA ALTIMARI | The Hartford Courant 9:54 AM EST, November 12, 2008 NEW HAVEN - A 4-year legal battle for same-sex marriage came to an end this morning in a New Haven courtroom when Superior Copurt Judge Jonathan E. Silbert signed an order. The state Supreme Court last month, in a 4-3 decision, ruled that preventing gay and lesbian couples from marrying violates the state constitution. Today's brief hearing was a formality that was needed before gay couples could start receiving marriage licenses. Immediately after the court proceeding, one of the plaintiff couples,...
  • For Jews, tattoo yearning pits pride against faith

    BOCA RATON Mo Brenner is taking Jewish pride to a new and controversial level. The 27-year-old Boca Raton tattoo artist boasts a large Star of David on his upper right arm engraved with Abram, his Hebrew name. He'll gladly sketch Hebrew writing and Jewish stars on his clients at Boca Body Art, because what could possibly be a better way to celebrate religion than with a shrine that will last a lifetime? "A tattoo should really mean something to you," Brenner said. "Mine represents my religion and family." With the tattoo phenomenon continuing to explode - 40 percent of...

    While promoters of "The Da Vinci Code" have tried to downplay the film's challenge to Christianity, actor Ian McKellen took a shot at the Bible in an interview with the "Today" show, saying Scripture should carry a disclaimer that it is "fiction." McKellen, who played Gandalf in "The Lord of the Rings" triology, was responding to a question from host Matt Lauer about the requests by some Christian groups to insert a "fiction" disclaimer at the beginning of the controversial film, which suggests Jesus and Mary Magdalene were man and wife and that the divinity of Jesus was an invention...

    (AgapePress) - A government employee in California is fighting a reprimand she recently received for sending an e-mail expressing her religious beliefs. The employee, who works for a large state agency in Sacramento, read an article in a national magazine which featured a lesbian attorney and her partner. The state worker was troubled by a statement in the article attributed to the attorney. That statement read: "Hypocrisy occurs when religion is used to justify why two people should not be married." The worker e-mailed the attorney from work, expressing her beliefs concerning religion and homosexuality and quoting several verses from...

    It is being reported on the Bird Flu Surveillance thread that Vietnam has prohibited a dish using fresh poultry blood. Those in the know realize that all have been warned about this several thousand years ago, but they reject the source. Thus, the bring upon themselves the penalty of their error: In the Bible, from God, it is written: Leviticus 7:26 'And you are not to eat any blood, either of bird or animal, in any of your dwellings. Leviticus 17:14 "For as for the life of all flesh, its blood is identified with its life. Therefore I said to...

    The Colorado Supreme Court has overturned a convicted killer's death sentence because jurors brought Bibles into the jury room and wrote down and quoted passages from the Old Testament during deliberations. Robert Harlan will serve life in prison without parole after being convicted and sentenced to death in 1995 for the kidnapping, murder and rape of a 25-year-old woman and the attempted murder of a woman who came to her aid. Casino waitress Rhonda Maloney was driving home from work when Harlan forced her car off the road and raped her. The victim escaped and flagged down a passing motorist,...

    Mass. Court: Gay Civil Unions Not Enough Wednesday, February 04, 2004 BOSTON Massachusetts lawmakers must give gay and lesbian couples full and equal marriage rights, the state's highest court ruled Wednesday. With its decision to back marriage and not the concept of civil unions, the court set the stage for the nation's first same-sex marriages (search) to take place beginning in mid-May. Plus, the court added fresh fuel to a debate that has split politicians, churches and families around the country. The court's action clarified what it meant in November when it ruled that the state's marriage laws were...

    City Council prepares for Phelps By Eric R. Wright rep7@wyomingnews.com Published in the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle CHEYENNE - City officials said Friday they have talked about what to do if a controversial pastor wants to put up an anti-gay monument on public property here. But they don't have a definite plan of action yet. "I think there are as many options as there are ideas," Mayor Jack Spiker said. The Rev. Fred Phelps and his Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church made clear this week their intention to erect such monuments in Casper; Rupert, Idaho; and in cities nationwide where the Ten...

    As the Episcopal Church agonized over the confirmation of the Rev. V. Gene Robinson as its first openly gay bishop - and now as his endorsement threatens to split the denomination - some have wondered why homosexuality is such a divisive issue in Christianity. Why don't all Episcopalians and other churches simply recognize that gay people are sexually active and move on? After all, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down sodomy laws this year and Canada plans to legalize same-sex marriages. The reason, in short, is the Bible - the word of God in the eyes of Christians. Until very...
