@moonbus saidRight, but Christianity never endorsed moving forward with classic Hebrew legalism. Our savior overturned all of that.
The fact that certain things are condemned in the Bible may be a reason for Christians not to do those things, but it is no reason for a secular state to criminalize them.
Some things are permitted or even commanded in the Bible. That is no reason for a secular state, no modern civilized one anyway, to permit or require the same things. We don’t sacrifice live animals on stone altars anymore, which is what Leviticus is all about. Exodus 22:18 we are well rid of.
Never saw a sacrificial altar in a church, either.
And what does secular mean?
Does it mean that no religious values should have influence, or that no religious discrimination should occur?
