Unknown biblical laws
« on: May 13, 2018, 12:21:15 AM »
I recently had a debate with a homosexual atheist who supposedly stated the following commandments:

1. A woman may not go to church for two months after giving birth.

2. Crossbreeding.

3. People who have flat noses becoming priests.

4. A male who's injured his testicles can't go to church? (probably the weirdest one)

5. Not wearing jewelry.

Can anyone give me some background for these claims? I'm not the best with the Biblical verses.

There may or may not be some canons that address these.  They are probably either in the canons or nowhere.

Well, you shouldn't be shaken by unsourced words by a homosexual Atheist, but since you asked:
  • He got it wrong. Women should stay indoors with their newborns fourty days after giving birth, but that's it.
  • This was Leviticus, the Law shadowed by Christ.
  • LOL, this would just kill off the Orthodox Church in Armenia and Georgia.
  • WTH? Well, he might have taken this from the prohibition that men who cut their own testicles for their own will be ordained priests, but it's a really long stretch...
  • I see how one could link jewelry and vanity/pride, but this doesn't mean jewelry is inherently sinful.

Not shaken up at all, I just wanted to know if these were actually commandments. Thank you for filling me in.

I know you weren't shaken up, it was a poor attempt at irony.

Are you saying that ME = homosexual Atheist? ...

No, my friend. Jackson was talking to a homosexual Atheist.

In my defense, when I wrote this question I was exhausted.

But deep down, aren't we ALL a homosexual Atheist?
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

BTW, I read "flat noses" and somehow thought of "pointy noses", my bad. Now I see he was talking about Leviticus 21:18. It seems to be generally read as referring to cleft lips, which is a birth defect. OT priests had to be perfect in the physical sense, but Christ also shadowed the importance of innate distinctions at all.

No.

The real homosexual Atheist is inside all of us!
