    I believe God's word...I trust its virture. I don't. Take away or add. If you follow it as a chritian should it is well with thee. I am my brothers keeper and Women pants are wrong ..even if we are doing them, bur especially when you come to God's house. I do think that is an abomination! If you love him respect him. Don't. Justify....Change. OT/NT doesn't matter the devil is cunning. Love GOD.

    The Law was given as a Schoolmaster, to bring us to Christ. If the Spirit of the LORD be truly in our hearts, then we will never have any controversy with the good and clean and normal; as God made it! The wearing of garments pertaining to the other gender, is abomination to God; just as if one thinks liberty means, freedom from rule. The two different genders compliment each other to God's glory.

    It really is hard to tell. In some aspects I think that this is referring mainly to gays. Honestly, though, people... Christians can only live by their convictions. That's why we're Christians in the first place is because of our conviction of God. If we are truly serving, loving and honoring God, he will convict us in those areas he needs to. There are many women serving God who wear pants.

    Jesus Christ didn't abolish anything about the law but his death impacted on all believer the grace to live above the law. For instance, no spirit filled believer can go after his neighbor's wife 'cos the Holy Spirit is there to guide him or her.

    Jesus Christ gave us the New Covenant, yes, some things were changed. Amen
  • Thomas Chambers
    I believe that Jesus Christ died for all sin, past, present and future Genesis through Revelations. If I interpret correctly, as described in Revelations, this is an chance once again for others to be saved. Our God is an loving God, an just God who is the I AM I AM! I like what I see thus far and hope to study Deuteronomy Chapter 22 more! Am I allowed to comment as the comments I see?
