    Leviticus 19:19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.

    However, farms do sow their fields with different seeds and we, as a society, do wear several separate garments that are fashioned from Linen or Wool.

    Explain to me how your god is just and explain to me how you follow his tenets. And to leave on another note

    1 Samuel 15: 1-3 Samuel said to Saul, “I am the one the LORD sent to anoint you king over his people Israel; so listen now to the message from the LORD. 2 This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. 3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’”

    The more appropriate question here would be…Why not read the entire book, instead of isolating verses which, when taken randomly and intentionally out of context are incapable of providing those answers that you would endeavor to understand?

  • Theharpazo

    I hope that you do not rely on this learning strategy in school or elsewhere, expecting employers or professors to read and explain your textbooks and manuals for you, thereby limiting your responsibility to flippantly scanning and isolating terms, historical excerpts, googling sites which provide antagonistic rankings about a book that they have little knowledge of, as well. I highly doubt this approach will benefit you much in this life, except to escape some work and time doing your own work or assignments.

    1 Corinthians 13:1-3
    “You can be the most generous, wise, kind speaking person in the world but without love you are nothing.”

    1 Corinthians 13:4-7
    “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    1 Corinthians 13:13
    And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
