I believe you're referring to the section of the law that is the Hebrew ceremonial law. Because the messiah already came, that part of the law was fulfilled. Remember the account where Jesus encourages his disciples to disregard the ancient law of the sabbath day? Jesus nowhere indicates, however, that the civil law should be disregarded.
So Leviticus is no longer relavent to today's society?

Do not be so smug as to assume you know where I am going.....

Apparently it is alright to throw out the pieces of Leviticus that we do not find relevant.

You are certain Paul is not refering to forcing young boys into temple prostitution as was the practice in the area he was ministering?


Well, the last time I read it, the language was pretty specific. Could you please explain your reasoning?

Certainly.

The passage in its original form did not use a word/words that was translated to mean homosexual. It was a word generally associated with young boys and forced sex.

Frankly? I've just had it.

What? I have no idea what you are talking about. Please explain, and how is my name homosexual?

What? You don't know?

"Full on Edge" sounds like you want to "bump and grind" a certain U2 member.

You homo, you.

Hey, I do not claim to know everything in the Bible. It's just natural to question what and what is not relevant in books like Leviticus.

Really? in the Greek? That is interesting, and I'll ask some Greek expert I know about that.

It's just not allowable to question the part about homosexuality? Why?

It's easier to throw out sacraficing birds.....because it seems silly to us today?

....those homosexuals, clearly in Leviticus it says.....

bigoted remarks behind supposed religious beliefs are to be tolerated?

without any reactions?

ok, like a second ago it seemed like you were genuinely offended about something. Now it appears you're just resorting to making fun of my name. It's hilarious, isn't it?

Actually, FullonEdge was inspired by interference Jim's account of what he heard in the studio before the album was released. He said it sounded like full on Edge. Do you follow?

Oh but I can cite 10 million Bible passages giving me the authority to say that, while I ignore all the passages on divorce and "Judge not, lest ye be judged," "He who is without sin, cast the first stone," and:

"Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery; you shall not kill; you shall not steal; you shall not covet," and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this saying, (namely) "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Love does no evil to the neighbor; hence, love is the fulfillment of the law." -- Romans 13:8-10

Of course, St. Paul was probably high on the hashish, so we clearly must ignore the fact that he clearly and explicitly repeals all laws in the Bible, except Jesus' commandment to "love one another."

So it is YOU that has the problem! Repent or God will smite you! Because I said so!

Oh I'm genuinely offended. Your name is the least of my worries.
