Oh, you must have not gotten the memo: The only parts of the Old Testament that are applicable anymore are the parts that condemn homosexuality.

Now let's see...
Pure cotton tee-shirt? Check!
Pure cotton shorts? Check!
Pure cotton underwear? Check!
Pure cotton shoes? Oh wait...
At the risk of offending Christians, a lot of what's written in the Bible is obsolete ... the meanings of laws and stories have been lost to history and dead cultures and are only really understood by historians, biblical scholars, theologians, archaeologists, etc ... Really, anyone who can see into the distant past.
I wonder how much of the Bible is really invariant to time/culture ... Those are the parts you would you want to read. Trying to interpret anything else would be like trying to understand jokes from Tumblr/4chan/whatever 2000+ years later.
There are some relevant things in the bible, and there are some stupid things in the bible. Guess what this falls under?
If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.

As a side note homosexuality isn't particularly singled out, but tends to appear among lists of other things that are considered bad, but are generally tolerated as all have sinned and are in need of grace.
You guys sure this conversation doesn't belong on the serious board?
Topics only really need to go on the serious board if you only want a few comments with legitimate answers and replies.
I try to avoid these topics, because I feel I have nothing good to say. So I will leave it at this and take my leave.
I'm referring to the fact that I've seen so many Christians who say they disregard the Old Testament bring up Old Testament verses to cite that homosexuality is wrong.
And then you have this...
It's a fact that the Old Testament is very frequently cited by Christians to condemn homosexuality, and it is also a fact that these same Christians totally disregard the other laws of the Old Testament. I've seen it many times, and you really don't have to look to far to see it for yourself.

However it's the New Testament teachings that make it an issue today, showing up multiple times as the religion spread among the Greek and Roman culture where they were told they shouldn't keep having homosexual sex with young boys as was the practice at the time. Again there is some debate on exactly what practices are specifically being referred to though obviously many feel it refers to all homosexual acts or at least all male/male homosexual acts.
I haven't been in a hotel room for a long time, so I haven't read a bible in a long time.
