Christian BoyLove Forum #65434
It's always a struggle when making an article for a forum not to make it overly long.
I could have developed my point showing that the holiness laws were eventually left behind by the NT church entirely and that the sexual immorality and idolatry rules did not... Acts 15 was still a transition time and you are right... at that stage they did also include these the issue over blood... but it's still significant that that was the ONLY one they included. I used Acts 15 because it highlights the issue briefly... perhaps I need to develop this point further.
Your concern that I made an exception of the homosexual point in the list is based on the suggestion that I'm trying to leave it out... but I'm not. I'm making the point that the modern world leaves it out of a list that they otherwise still hold to... but that even this is a recent omission.
Despite the flaws in the details of my article, I feel confident that a careful or even a general reading of the Bible will support my overall point.
Thanks for the critiques
