    I believe the Old Testament laws are still in effect, I also take what The Bible says literally. I.believe Noah lived to be 950 yrs. old. My gfriend thinks I'm off my rocker! Oh well! To Each Their Own!!

    I think Tobit was talking to his son, before Jesus Christ was born and crucified. Now we must except Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior and be baptized to escape hell.
  • Is the Most High's word and it must be respected...For who are we to question when in reality he gave us life. Shalom!
  • WOW so is this true are these real actual facts being withdrawn from the bible?? that verse was powerful, why shoudnt we date white women and others why just inside our tribes?Shalom my brother and sister.
