When the Bible talks about ritual purity and laws regarding clean and unclean practises, it’s vitally important to note the social context of such passages in order to attain a clearer understanding.
It’s time to answer another quick Bible contradiction offered by the skeptics. This one is on the issue of God’s anger.
“Christianity is a relationship, not a religion,” is one of the church’s most popular phrases. But is it true? Are relationship and religion really polar opposites?
I see a lot of critics throw out verses of OT law in order to enforce the “barbaric” nature of the Bible. Are these laws truly disgusting, or did the ancients have something else in mind?
