Vail Daily letter: Ever work on Sunday? Bible says you should be killed
Vail, CO, Colorado
Seeing the letter from Paul Gallagher May 22, I felt the need to also comment. I am proud of my faith. I go to church every Sunday.
But the Bible is not always spoken from God. In Exodus 35-2 it is Moses speaking the word of the Lord when he says, “For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh say shall be your holy day, a day of sabbath rest to the Lord. Whoever does any work on it is to be put to death.”
Ever work on a Sunday, Paul? I have, but now spend my Sunday at church.
What about Leviticus 11-8, where no pigs are to ever be eaten? Leviticus 19 says you cannot plant two kinds of seeds in the same field, or wear clothing woven of two kinds of material. We are all pretty much in trouble on these ones.
I hope you understand the Bible is a guide. We obviously don’t stone people to death or sell our daughters into slavery any more.
You used Romans 1 in your letter, but that was spoken by an apostle, Paul. You stopped your first book of Corinthians 6 9-10. However, if you go one more verse, it says people like “that” (adulterers, slanderers, drunkards, sexually immoral, etc.) can be “washed and sanctified.”
Being gay, I believe God loves everyone! Follow the 10 Commandments, put your faith in God, and the rest will fall into place.
