Many scoff at some of the laws of the Old Testament — even our former president did so, and warned Christians that they didn’t even know what the Old Testament said, or they would not be so quick to quote it regarding homosexuality and other issues. But those strange-sounding laws were for this purpose — that Israel would not follow any of the customs and sacrificial systems of the lands around them or of Egypt, from whence they were delivered.
Leviticus 18:3 ‘You shall not do what is done in the land of Egypt where you lived, nor are you to do what is done in the land of Canaan where I am bringing you; you shall not walk in their statutes.”
These laws are for God’s people, and God does not change. Since Jesus Christ came, that category applies to all who believe in Him, Jew or non-Jew. The world, if it continues in its ways, will face judgment for their actions. But Christ’s goal, and ours, is to proclaim that there is a way out of bondage to sin — He is the Chain Breaker! It is to proclaim that God the Father sent His Son to do just that. Such were some of you . . . but you were saved (1Corinthians 6:11)! What a great heart our God has! He made me a “such were!” He made me a “formerly,” at 45 years of age! Bless His holy name, He will do it for whosoever believes in Jesus Christ!
