Heb_5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need t ...[text shortened]... growing in in the meat [righteousness and good works] is actively discouraged, almost forbidden.
And it seems to me obsessing over such is not life fulfilling. Especially since all that eating proscription is 100% written by men and never inspired by a god.
Also verses like 'men are worth 50 shekels but women are worth only 30'. CLEARLY manmade to codify the idea of men being top dogs in human culture.
Too bad you can't see that. For instance, the same about Jews eating pork. CLEARLY a man made edict since we now know exactly what makes pork unsafe to eat. Therefore if WE know, an omniscient god would CERTAINLY know and instead of that omniscient god saying don't eat pork it could have just as easily said, look there are these tiny bad animals inside pork and if you want to eat it you have to cook the hell out of it, then it's safe to eat.
Do you see THAT kind of advice anywhere in the bible? NO just negative edicts. Which CLEARLY comes from men not knowing jack about the real world just writing a work around for a specific problem they saw, hey, pork can be bad for you, solution, don't eat pork.
That is SO mankind.
