    They weren't "Sanctuary Cities" like we think of today; where everyone here illegally can be "protected" from the Law of the land: but they were specifically for those who accidentally killed someone, without having wicked intention beforehand. Innocent blood defiles the land and makes the whole country guilty until that innocent blood is removed, by the blood of the wicked murderer who shed it.

    I am taken at the fact that Moses built 3 cities specifically for people who committed crimes against their neighbors accidentally. He gave them a place of saftey. I believe these were cities of refuge. You cannot do that for your fellowman unless you have a forgiving heart. We must allow GOD to be the only judge in these matters. We all make mistakes but we all don't get caught. Love
  • Brianna vs. 15-20
    Idol worship! Vs. 15 warned the Jews, and warns us, to be very careful and watch ourselves closely. God warned about being "seduced" into idol worship. I like vs. 16 where it warns about making idols to represent any symbol. The revered cross has certainly crept into Christianity. People view it as a trinket and use it regularly in worship. Is it befitting for a Christian to have?
