You may ignore if you must, but such action is reminiscent of the proverbial ostrich that buries it head in the sand. I am will to argue and to learn. These two sometimes come hand in hand. But you have got to convince me that you have the right epistemic methodology for investigating reality.

Hoorah, to your approach.

Well, I don't know if he is seeking only to argue. But ignoring him probably may not be a better option - especially because there are answers to be offered. I may be wrong - you guys have been following the forum longer than I have.

Is it possible to ignore Huxley? He does not really want to learn. He just wants arguments.

What do you people think?

What does it mean to ratify a law by the blood of animals? In practice, what does this entail?

Are the other 9 commandments similarly ratified? Is so, how is the "injunction not to kill" ratified? Where are the biblical references justifying this interpretation?

Let me draw your attention to Matthew 5. This is Jesus speaking;

17 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

18 I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

19 Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

What do you think? Is Jesus endorsing the laws or is he abrogating them?

The last time I checked, the law of the sabbath was still part of the 10 commandments. If the law of the sabbath is not binding on non-Jews, are the other 9 commandments equally not binding on non-Jews?

How is one to know which laws are binding and which are not?

@topic,

Let me add a few more lines:

"Is It A Sin To Work On The Sabbath?" NO.

It all depends on several things:

(a) The sabbath law was made for Jews - that law was not binding on Gentiles (that is people who are not Jews)

(b) The sabbath law was ratified by the blood of animals - it was binding on all who were Jews under the law of Moses

(c) Christians are not under a covenant ratified by the blood of animals - we are believers from every nation of the world

(d) the New Testament sabbath is more a Person than a day - it is Christ Himself! Christ is our blessed rest, and we are the beneficiaries of the better things through the covenant of HIS Blood.

Blessings.

@SeanT21,

Sabbath is not really sunday. In Jewish land it was Saturday. we are free from things like that.

Everyday for us is now sabbath so we should live our lives consecrated unto God. There is nothing like God understands our job. He looks at our hearts and sees our devotion for him not anything else.

THE NEW SABBATH is now temporarily sunday but we dont go the way of the Old and everlasting Sabbath

but as a true devoted Christian we must consecrate ourselves to God.

The Sabbath has been suspended.

There so many things that make a sabbath.

You must be an Israelite to observe.

You must have a priest

You must have a state leader (king)

You must go through ceremonial statues

by Jesus we are of the commonwealth of Isreal but we have our Sabbath Everyday!

In Jesus we have a King and a Priest ( this is what is needed to lead you to the heavenly Kingdom)

JESUS IS THE TRUE REST

HE IS THE LORD OF THE SABBAOTH
