Should we really trust Bible on life’s many quandaries?

Re: the letter to the editor in the Advocate by Bill Pogmore on Aug. 21: Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, I simply remind them of the First Corinthians passages and it ends the debate.

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, I simply remind them of the First Corinthians passages and it ends the debate.

I do, however, need some advice from you on other matters clearly spelled out in the Bible.

• When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice (Lev 1:9), my neighbours complain of the odor. Should I smite them?

• I would like to sell my daughter into slavery to make some cash. (Exodus 21:7). At what age would suggest I do this?

• Lev 25:44 clearly states I am allowed to own and buy slaves … but my booth at the farmers market was shut down and I was arrested. Will the City of Red Deer bylaw enforcers be judged for this upon their death?

• I saw my father-in-law working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states I can put a cap in him. Am I morally obligated to do this?

• Finally, most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples. This is forbidden by Lev 19:27. How should they die? Or will they be judged for their sin upon their death?

Thank you again for reminding us that the word of God is eternal. He has the control over the physics of a billion, billion stars but is really more concerned with who people sleep with.
