Taking notes about life
I agree with him and you. I think the historic laws you’ve pointed out, like not eating pork (etc.), deal with things people at the time didn’t know/understand yet as in safe food cooking temperatures, sanitation, etc. They could get sick from it being under cooked or having parasites in it or whatnot. A lot of those laws were in fact to protect them from stuff we don’t necessarily have to think about today due to advances in health, technology, chemistry/biology, etc. Other laws were to keep God’s people holy and to remind them they are set apart because they serve under a Holy God. The laws reminded them who God is and what he had done for him. I can’t pretend I understand everything or even most of it yet but that’s the beauty of living, learning/studying and, well, growing. I think it’s a good thing to bring up and to discuss with others about so we can better understand the Word and get to to Him more.
You know, the ones that say don’t wear clothes of mixed fabrics, don’t have sex with your mom, no bacon, and kill the homosexuals. Just because there are a few of those that I like, and quite a bit more that I most certainly do not like. But, Ken Ham made an interesting point last night during the debate, that I don’t think he meant to make.
Welcome to 2014. A year that–I’m hoping, will include a move (or two), more plane travel, a huge downsizing, healthier choices in my physical, emotional and familial decisions, and a realistic yet expectant outlook. A year I’m hoping will exude wisdom & be full of adventure. I also want to read some books.
Well, there you have a sorry attempt at some new year’s resolutions.
Some of my thoughts for the new year as well
