Dr. Laura and Bible Advice!

August 22, 2010 - 9:07 am 42 Comments

Dear Dr. Laura;

Thank you so much about educating people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share this knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states that it is an abomination… End of debate!

However, I need some advice from you, regarding some other elements of God’s laws and how best to follow them…

10 leviticus 25:44 states that i can possess slaves, both male and female, provided that they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims this passage refers to Mexicans, but not to Canadians. Would you clrify? Why can’t I own Canadians?

2) I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3) I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman whiole she is in her period of Menstruation- she is unclean or so says Lev. 15:19-24. The problem is: How can I tell?
I have tried asking women I meet, but they take offense at my questions…

4) When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know that it creates a pleasing oder for the Lord Lev.1:9 The problem is my neighbors. They claim that the oder is not pleasing to them! Should I smite them?

5) I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states that he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6) A friend of mine feels that eating shellfish is an abomination Lev. 11:10 but that it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I do not agree. Can you settle this? Are there degrees of abomination?

7) Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20 or is there some wiggle room here?

8) Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is extremely forbidden by Lev. 19:27 How should they die?

9) I know from Lev. 11: 6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10) My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in one field, as does his wife wearing two garments made of different thread ( cotton/poly blend) He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary to go through all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone him? Lev. 24: 10-16 Coulddn’t we just burn them to death at a private family party, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? Lev. 20:14
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.
