President Barack Obama stated in 2006, “Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is Ok and that eating shellfish is abomination? How about Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount–a passage that is so radical that it’s doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application? So before we get carried away, let’s read our Bibles.”
He along with the majority of Americans attack the scripture and denounce the truth of God’s Word. The common denominator seems to be ignorance of the Old Testament scripture, which leaves most rejecting the protective love that God provides with His Law. And it is clear, the laws are so foreign to people today that even church attenders and Christians give the same arguments that Obama gives, and concludes no one needs to follow the Law today, just love God and do what you generally want, as long as you don’t feel guilty and feel good about yourself.
Here are some answers to these questions and concerns. For more answers go straight to the Book, the Bible. Thank you for watching Straight Talk for Narrow Road Followers of Jesus. If these messages have been a help to you, please pass them on to others through email, Facebook and twitter.
