In 2003, Gene Robinson became the first openly gay Episcopal priest elected as Bishop in the Diocese of New Hampshire, an act that has created controversy among the U.S. church and more conservative members of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

The Bible has stern rebukes for those wearing blended fabrics and those who rotate their crops ...
Not mixing fabrics and crops were probably mnemonic memory devices to remind the Isrealites not to intermarry with the Canaanites, but how many Canaanites do you know exist today?

About as many as men born in Sodom.

Jewish ceremonial law not only existed but was relevant for as long as their was a temple in Jerusalem.

Probably?

It's the word of God that you choose not to follow. Picking and choosing once again.

Your history lesson for today:

According to the Bible (which you really must read someday) God instructed the Israelites NOT to kill all Canaanites but to keep them as slaves.

If a slave owner had relations with a slave the child would still be a Canaanite (matriarchy - just as in the Jewish faith). So much for that sanctity of marriage proclaimed by Scripture!

The Canaanites can be tracked into northern Africa - also proven by archaeology and rock engraving.

*today's lesson is provided by a follower of Yeshua who is passionate enough to find the truth.....

Exactly how does one follow Jewish ceremonial law when there's no Jewish temple?

And only you would be so arrogant to claim your interpretations of scripture as unimpeachable.

So what is it Joe...none of the gobbltygook applies or just the ones you say apply? Are those 613 still in force today in 21st century Christendom? Don't they really have to do with Jewish sanitary laws and the parts about how PRIESTS must maintain certain things in the Temple?

Answer very carefully!

Since you claim to be Episcopalian, what is the Episcopal Canon re Jewish ceremonial law and morality? How many times as TA quoted it for you?

I came to fulfill the LAW....that God loves his children and wants them to be happy in their love for him. What is so hard to understand?

Why not attend a synagogue, I'll bet your buddy Rabbi Stein will explain along the way.

And now YOU can explain to me the 'ceremonial Law' of not rotating crops or wearing blended fabric and exactly how that could possibly play into anything concerning the Temple.

PS, didn't you hear Jesus the Jew say WE ARE THE TEMPLE?

LOL...

Not mixing fabrics and crops were probably mnemonic memory devices to remind the Isrealites not to intermarry with the Canaanites as intermarriage would prohibit one from attending Temple, i.e., ceremonially unclean, i.e, Samaritans.

Yes, you copy and pasted that before but you STILL FAIL to answer what rotated crops and mixed fabric have to do with Temple Ceremony.

Am I surprised - LOL..........

I will do it again just for kicks.
VII. Of the Old Testament.

The Old Testament is not contrary to the New: for both in the Old and New Testament everlasting life is offered to Mankind by Christ, who is the only Mediator between God and Man, being both God and Man. Wherefore they are not to be heard, which feign that the old Fathers did look only for transitory promises.

Although the Law given from God by Moses, as touching Ceremonies and Rites, do not bind Christian men, nor the Civil precepts
thereof ought of necessity to be received in any commonwealth; yet notwithstanding, no Christian man whatsoever is free from the obedience of the Commandments which are called Moral.

You believe what ever an Atheist scientist tells you.

Please tell me where the Bible begins recording Truth. If not Genesis 1 then where and how do you decide?

What is the basis for believing ANY of it is truth? The only thing I can think of is faith. And of course, faith is not proof.
