Did Jesus negate all Hebraic laws?
This is a question I’ve been asking since California upheld Prop 8, legalizing discrimination against gays & lesbians:
If a Christian uses Old Testament Leviticus/Romans/Numbers edicts against the abomination of man-laying-with-man but ignores similar abomination-defining edicts like no shellfish, don’t work on Sundays, don’t wear garments made of two fabrics, etc…. well, isn’t that just cherry-picking parts of a faith that support their own bigotry and ignoring other parts that are inconvenient?
Someone said Jesus specifically negated the bit about shellfish. What about the other “abominations?”
All answers I’ve received are non-answers like, “well, that’s just the way I was brought up to believe” or “we’re all sinners.”
What do you say?
