Explaining the distinct differences between Natural law and the Carnal Ordinances that were imposed on God’s people for a time.
I thought I’d post some of this information here in one spot to save myself a few thousand keystrokes every time some God hating Atheist or Sodomite opens the foolish LGBT agenda cookbook and spews the same old question over and over: “Do you eat Pork or Shellfish?”
They do this in the futile belief that they will catch me partaking in an “abomination” (so they assume) such as Eating Pork or Shellfish or wearing mixed fabrics as if it is equally forbidden and then try to compare it to their chosen lifestyle of Sodomy. A wicked lifestyle that God and therefore all Bible Believing Christians such as myself do not condone. Ever.
The root of their gross error simply relies on the fact that the book of Leviticus (as well as Deuteronomy) lists both laws against Sodomy and other sins against nature as well as listing canal law forbidding eating certain unclean beasts and other carnal ordinances.
Part of their reading comprehension issues are due to
#1 not a saved believer
#2 have not read the entire KJV Bible and simply rely on parroting the rumors spread by ignorant activists.
So even after all of the information below is shared there is a chance the person may either as an unbeliever that can not understand it or reject it because their foolish heart is hardened which stems from them knowing (of) God and rejecting God.
[Note, the text in green are hyperlinks to bible verses, etc for sourced reference. Be sure to click on them for more information].
The Natural Laws against murder, stealing, and other actions against your fellow man such as Sodomy were obviously forbidden before Moses handed down a list of laws and ordinances as we read in Leviticus and Deuteronomy. You see the cause and effect of people committing these actions.
After the flood in Genesis 9 KJV Noah drank some wine that was fermented (alcoholic) and as a result his youngest son molested him while he was incapacitated. Noah later realized what happened and cursed the son’s generations and cast him out.
Yes, it was that serious! His son was a Sodomite.
Sadly most preachers skip right over this account in the bible because they either don’t understand or are cowards. Usually the latter.
And then of course we all know that in Genesis 19 KJV, the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, the men of the city wanted to have sex with the visiting men (who were actually angels but they did not know that). God destroyed that city. Not for “inhospitality” as the fools claim, but because indeed those wicked men were FILTHY and went after STRANGE flesh. (By the way. The word “Queer“ literally means Strange which is why it is appropriate label for Sodomites versus the inappropriate label “gay”.)
Now note that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding like cities occurred BEFORE God handed down instructions of Law in Leviticus and Deuteronomy.
Now in passages such as in Leviticus and Deuteronomy there are laws reiterated against murder, rape, adultery, stealing etc however as the children were just brought out of the land of Egypt by God they also had Carnal ordinances imposed on them as well. Ordinances that were not in effect before.
There were ordinances imposed for their own good such as the divers washings. They were now living in the wilderness after all so being told to be sure and wash certain things and situations with running water rather than stagnant or reused water, etc helped fight disease, germs, etc. Much of Leviticus is about cleanliness.
Some of the ordinances imposed on the Hebrew people were symbolic and set as a reminder that they were brought out of the land of Egypt by God and were to be separate and not do the acts of those wicked people. And God was strict so that the children would know to not repeat the same circumstances of becoming wicked and getting destroyed as had happened to the people in Egypt. (Of course we know that through the generations they did eventually take after the heathen including allowing Sodomites to take root and they were punished accordingly time and time again which is why when the people turned back to God and got a good leader such as King Asa, King Josiah etc, the leaders cast out the Sodomites which was part of cleaning up their society).
There were also carnal ordinances that were symbolic such as to represent the difference of works versus grace. One such symbolic ordinance was not wearing animal clothing mixed with plant clothing. So while we read in Leviticus that Sodomy IS an abomination and the person caught in it among the people should be put to death, just because it was in Leviticus or the “Old Testament” does it mean that it was related to the carnal ordinances or done away with in the New Testament as many people ignorantly believe. In fact, is the law against murder, rape or stealing done away with in the New Testament? No. Of course not.
Now here’s the truth.
Jesus fulfilled the carnal law against the people after his death burial and resurrection. Many of those carnal laws AND the rituals done by the priests in the tabernacle and the temple actually pointed to the work of Jesus Christ. These laws were fulfilled and “done away with” are specified in the New Testament.
This includes the divers washings, the Sabbath day observances, and of course the dietary restrictions of certain unclean beasts.
These were specifically mentioned several times in the New Testament as you will find listed below.
So finally, the proof that we are no longer under the law restricting us from eating Pork or Shellfish and other Carnal Ordinances as specified in the New Testament.
Acts 10 KJV – The Lord gives Peter the vision of all manner of beasts as good to eat!
11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.
Right there the man was shown that no manner of beast was forbidden to eat. This is also symbolic, btw, that there is no more separation of “Jew versus Gentile”.
Which is why today it don’t matter what genealogy you come from.
Yes, BACON was back on the menu!!!
Then in Hebrews 9 KJV we see more descriptive explanation of the carnal ordinances.
8 The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.
That is the gist of it but read the entire chapter for more. Verse 10 mentions the meats, divers washings and carnal ordinances imposed on them UNTIL the time of reformation. Jesus Christ of course being that reformation. Again. No more separation of the Jew versus Gentile.
Colossians 2 KJV
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
Verses 16 and 17 can not be any more clear.
There are some other scriptures but that should be enough.
Something you should be aware of however is that there are some heresies out there especially the Catholic Church and the more recent Hebrew Roots / Messianic movements arising which while each vary in core beliefs, yet all seem to eventually put people BACK under bondage of foolish rituals (Catholic) or back under the carnal law thus rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrew Roots / Messianic). Interestingly the bible speaks of such heretic movements:
1 Timothy 4 KJV
1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
Take note that some of there heretics would actually FORBID people from marrying (Catholic Cult) and some would command to abstain from meats such as we see in some of the Hebrew Roots / Messianic cults. But what does verse 4 and 5 say?
EVERY CREATURE of God is good for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. Which is why people PRAY over their meals.
Now. It should be proven by now that there is no restriction from eating Pork or Shellfish as well as other specific carnal ordinances lifted. As explained these pointed towards Christ. Which is now been fulfilled.
However, since Christ has come and fulfilled the ordinances is the carnal law against murder, rape, adultery, kidnapping or Sodomy lifted? NO! That would be silly. And the New Testament reiterates many of those laws.
Here’s something else that most people do not know!
In the beginning, man did not eat any animals or beasts. Man was vegetarian.
It wasn’t until after the flood that God told Noah (and mankind) that ALL manner of beasts and creatures could be meat just as was the green and herbs before. Only drinking the blood was forbidden. Which is why Satanists mock God by drinking blood.
As for the sin of the Sodomites:
Romans 1 clearly defines the process of a person FIRST rejecting God until the point that God “gives up” the person to uncleanness, vile affections and ultimately their reprobate mind to even be able to do what the scripture said was unseemly and inconvenient (does not come naturally) which proves that it is not a natural sin that just anyone is tempted by.
Those people are literally rejected and their heart is permanently darkened by God and at THAT POINT is when they become a full blown out and proud Sodomite.
That person can no longer get saved. Ever.
Being a Sodomite is an attribute of a reprobate.
Most modern Christians struggle with this truth because they are so deceived and also because eventually someone realizes a family member or a person they know is a Sodomite and they become soft.
Do NOT become soft!
And in Romans it says that people who do such things, the things mentioned in verses 24-28, as being worthy of death. Interestingly, it says that not only they who do those things, but they that take pleasure IN THEM that do those things!
So think about it as you attack the Word of God and defend your token Sodomite celebrities!
Here’s a side note:
Most people are not aware that the NIV bible and many modern perversions like it is corrupted and was actually produced with the help of open Sodomites and produced by a wicked publisher for copyright and profit. (Interesting enough, this is one such bible verse they corrupt by changing the sin here of corrupting the word of God to selling the word of God which is a different meaning but part of necessary changes to both corrupt the word AND grant their copyrights for each version).
They also use a corrupt Greek text crafted in the 1800’s by wicked men who believed in Evolution and who made the previously often rejected and known counterfeit Catholic and Alexandrian texts popular for the modern book publishers to use as their basis today.
There are many strategic changes such as attacking Jesus deity as well as changing many verses to take away the homosexual sin (words like Reprobate, Abomination, Sodomite etc are missing or changed to a word of a different meaning).
But check this out.
Here’s one of the changed verses that has actually given ammo to the Atheists and Sodomites alike to attack the Bible!
This strategic change is in Deuteronomy 22 verses 28 and 29. (Click the link for a KJV vs NIV side by side comparison).
The word of God in the KJV speaks about a man taking a virgin that he is NOT MARRIED TO and having sex with her. This was a sin. Which is known in the New Testament as “fornication”.
However it was NOT about rape as the corrupt NIV ignorantly changes it to. But simply that the man humbled the virgin daughter. Before modern corrupt society a daughter was of value and pride to her father and she was “given” to a man to wed.
Not that the woman never had any influence in what man they wed, but in order to receive a woman to wed the father had to GIVE her to the man. The father had to approve.
Which is why to this day the wedding ritual of “Who gives this woman to wed” is still asked by almost all pastors (or so called ordained ministers) and answered by the father of the bride, step father or other stand in to maintain it as a ritual.
Although that ritual is pretty much worthless in today’s perverted society where over half the women given to a man to wed are not pure for them because not save themselves for their future husband.
Which goes back to what this passage was about. Godly men expected their betrothed (like engaged to) women to be pure (virgin) when they got them. And this instructed the people how to deal with it.
Because of the strategic change in the NIV, fools use this to declare that the Bible promotes or defends rape. For more information on Bible corruption, watch the documentary NEW WORLD ORDER BIBLE VERSIONS for free on youtube.
