Friends, a read through of Leviticus chapters 18-20 deals with sexual activity. Much (if not all) of what is listed there are practices that most Christians will readily frown upon and accept as the Law of God.

However, it is noteworthy that these Laws against Sexual Immorality in Leviticus are in the same location of the Bible that prohibits the consumption of pork and other unclean animals. Now, it’s safe to say all well meaning Christians know better than to say that such laws about sex have been ‘nailed to the cross’ or no longer apply to us as we ‘live under grace.’ Well, then the argument or belief that the laws about unclean meats being abolished should be seen as invalid as well, since they are in the same book of the Bible. Let’s not deceive ourselves on this!

Why take out some laws and accept them as applicable to modern-day Christians, then render the rest as no longer relevant, especially when the consequences on disobeying them affects our health and the health of our offspring.

Again, I have to reiterate this fact, Jesus himself did say:

17“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I HAVE NOT COME TO ABOLISH THEM but to fulfill them.

18I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

19 ANYONE WHO BREAKS ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE COMMANDMENTS AND TEACHES OTHERS TO DO THE SAME WILL BE CALLED LEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

His word stays the same as is said in Malachi 3: 6 “I am the LORD, and I do not change” and Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”

In addition, God Himself says: “Even though I gave them ALL my laws, they act as if those laws don’t apply to them.” Hosea 8:12

Well, the LORD has spoken, so remember: we should not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. (Galatians 6:7)

The METHOD TO ATONE FOR BREAKING THE LAWS being the killing and sacrifice of innocent animals is what’s done away NOT THE LAWS THEMSELVES.

Let’s think about this, God made all creatures and He cares for humans as well as animals. So to alleviate the constant bloodshed of innocent creatures due to mankind’s tendency and inclination to constantly sin (the Lord himself knows and said in Genesis 8: 21: “Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood.” ) and since He knew His laws and Word was going to be spread all over the World, if and when even well-meaning Christians and Jews sin every now and then, instead of having to make sacrificial offerings for each sin, all we have to do is plead the “blood of Jesus” or ask for forgiveness in Jesus Name-and by all means not go back to the same sin(s)

Besides, most of us in the United States live in cities and most likely in apartments or designated residential areas, so

  • When last have any of us seen a real live lamb?
  • Even if lambs were still that accessible, how many of us have the time or space to sacrifice a lamb for each time we sin?

Many sources mention 2.1 billion Christians in the world (about one third of the total population of the planet), can you imagine that many people having to sacrifice each time they sinned and I have not even counted the Jews. Folks, it ain’t that many lambs in the world!!!

Even for modern day Jews, it should be noted that they don’t sacrifice animals anymore because all sacrificing had to be centralized in the Temple at Jerusalem, and when the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD by the Romans, sacrifice was no longer possible. Prayer replaced sacrifice as the form of worship.

So on a humorous note, can you imagine you and 2.1 billion other Christians and an approximate 12 million Jews having to go to Jerusalem to kill sacrifice lambs for each time we sin or want to pray or whatever. Now it should indeed make sense why Jesus died to atone for our sins once and for all-but again, we are NOT permitted to keep on sinning!

(For more on why animals are no longer sacrificed you can go to http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2091/why-do-jews-no-longer-sacrifice-animals | Google Search Term: The Straight Dope: Why do Jews no longer sacrifice animals?)

Here’s another thing worth noting, in Jeremiah 7 God stated:

“For when I brought your ancestors out of Egypt, I said nothing to them, gave no orders, about burnt offerings or sacrifices.  My one command to them was this:  Listen to my voice, then I will be your God and you shall be my people . . . but they did not listen.” (Jeremiah 7:22-24, NJB)

It is plain to see that God himself stated that the sacrificial laws and rituals were not a part of his original laws given to Israel, but were added later because the Israelites did not obey him.

Therefore, since they were not a part of God’s original laws, their elimination in the New Testament does not apply to the main body of God’s laws. Paul also affirmed this by stating that:

“What purpose then does the law serve?  It was added because of transgressions . . .” (Galatians 3:19)

As a result, in a combination of Galatians 3:19 with Jeremiah 7:22-24, it is obvious that the law that was “added” (to the original laws of God) was the law (or rules) about animal sacrifices. So, Paul did not abolish the laws of God in any of his writings.

So, has it started to add up? Indeed God so loved the world-including innocent lambs, and ALL HIS creatures-that he gave his only son!

Remember, the laws are not changed by Jesus dying on the cross, what to do when we break them (if and when we do) is what has changed.

On a related note, I am pointing these out because people often refer to the Laws on Clean and Unclean meats as “Jewish” food laws, because they are still followed by Orthodox Jews—yet Muslims and others also observe similar food restrictions.

Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”–Steve Jobs
