    Leviticus 3:17: ‘This shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings: you shall eat neither fat nor blood.’ ” Several years ago, a researcher found that eating visceral fat ("The fat that covers the entrails and all the fat that is on the entrails, the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the flanks, and the fatty lobe attached to the liver above the kidneys," - v. 3-4) causes low-grade inflammation in the body. It isn't good for you. There is often a physical health component to the dietary restrictions in the Law of Moses.

    Dear pastor,
    As our family was reading through, the daily Bible readings we came up with two questions.
    1. Was Moses wrong when he allowed the people to give their spouse a certificate of divorce?
    2. The other question has more to do with the mark and avoid passage and kind of combining that with the passages that talk about not sitting in the seat with mockers and being with hypocrites, the thought being that you might be led into temptation by associating with them as friends etc. like we can see saying hi, wishing them well, helping them if they need help. But we wonder should we plan a bowling night with them or plan a picnic with them etc. sincerely the Joel Enter family

      Hi Joel and Family!

      1. I don't think Moses was wrong. The truth was and the truth is that there is sinfulness in this world. There are going to be times that people break their marriage vows and so because God knew that this was going to happen, He allowed for the certificate of divorce. But that is not what God wanted, just what God knew was going to happen because of the sinfulness of mankind. That is why Jesus said, "Because of your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment."

      2. We need to be careful about making broad rules in this area. We do not want to go beyond what God's Word says. That would be legalism. We also do not want to burden other peoples' consciouses. I think you could go bowling or have a picnic with someone and it be a perfectly fine, God-pleasing activity. However, there may be other circumstances that would lead to things that God would not approve of. Sorry to be vague, but it is a challenging question! If you have more questions on this topic, I would be happy to chat sometime.

      Thanks for submitting questions! Please keep them coming!
