Can someone explain to me if most Christians follow Leviticus.


It is my minimally informed belief that most Christians do not follow Leviticus because it was either A) part of the old testament or B) Was not written for Gentiles. I know that the majority of the laws in it are not followed by Christians, yet when I hear the most common argument against being gay, it comes from Leviticus. So can someone please explain, is it picking and choosing or is there a reason Christians cling to this line about gay people, but not the rest of it? I genuinely don't get it, and my hubby (Christian) says he has never followed the old testament, just new testament.

    WE can't "cast the first stone," but the Word of God certainly can! That's why the Scriptures say "Judge RIGHTEOUS judgment" (Jn 7:24) & the only RIGHTEOUS judgment comes from His Words and not ours!

    Amen!

    Therefore, "BELIEVERS" should KNOW if "studying" as a "TRUE BELIEVER" should!

    Unbelievers only trying to justify "their" preferred "lifestyles!"

    I follow the New Covenant re: food & 65; no arthritis, no sugar, no high blood pressure. Praise be to GOD! I believe "Rise, Peter; kill & eat" Acts 10:15 "...What GOD has cleansed, that call not thou common." It's a NEW DAY w/a NEW COVENA

    "You can agree with Leviticus and do some of the things mentioned there and it doesn't mean you agree with all of them." Read Jm 2:10 "Offend in 1 point, guilty of ALL!" Why subj yourself to the law?One can't keep ALL! New day! New Covenant! Easier!
