    It does NOT say a woman isn't allowed to wear pants. Deuteronomy 22:5, Deuteronomy 12:32

    Remember John 3:16, Matthew 25:31-46,

    it's talking about dressing to resemblance appearance as opposite sex.

    At about 5 or 6 years old, I was told by a neighbor man, I should wear a dress, I wore a dress & the "monster" raped me both ways. I went unconscious more than once & was held by a heavenly being after I asked to die. The heavenly being comforted me he was wearing a white robe. I had a conversation as an adult outside of my young self, I guess in the heaven. Then I was back.

    Later I was in a church Sunday school that I was made to wear a dress, (by step mother) the boys would lay on the floor to see my undergarments. It was emotionally painful & I would cry not to wear a dress. Even as a young adult men have been dishonorable when I wear shirts or dresses. I could use it for my gain!! However I rarely wear s dress & when I do, heads turn. I find it much more modest to wear pants. The husbands at the churches, stores etc don't stare as much when I wear pants.

    Pants aren't what disqualify someone from heaven.

    Precious friend, Naresh. You do realize reading and studying are two different things? I would suggest "reading" to be 3-5 (or more, IF you wish...) chapters a day and that will take about a year to "read" the Whole Bible (KJV). This is good so that you can "...live By EVERY Word That Proceedeth Out Of The Mouth Of God." ( Deuteronomy 8:3) ( Matthew 4:4) ( Luke 4:4)

    For life-long "studying" I recommend starting With: "What God Is Doing Today, Under GRACE, And Specifically WHO HE IS, And HIS Salvation For us," found in Romans Through Philemon, KJV, prayerfully And Carefully, and study According To The Following Bible "study" Rules: ( 1 Corinthians 14:40) ( 2 Timothy 2:15) ( Deuteronomy 4:2) ( Deuteronomy 12:32) ( Proverbs 30:5-6) ( Revelation 22:18-19 KJB!) ( Acts 17:11) ( Isaiah 28:10) ( 2 Timothy 3:16-17) ( 2 Timothy 3:16-17) ( 1 Corinthians 2:13)

    The Best "Interpretive" Commentary On The Bible Is The BIBLE Itself!:

    NEVER ever interpret The Many Plain Scriptures by the "few" difficult verses, But, ALWAYS Always Interpret the few Obscure/Difficult/Dubious verses By ALL Of The MANY Plain and Clear Passages Of God's Pure And Holy Word!


    "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do ALL to The Glory Of God!" ( 1 Corinthians 10:31)

    Naresh, hope this helps on your reading/studying journey, and saves you from a lot of Confusion of the enemy...
  • Ed Hand on Genesis 2:7
    The breath of life, from God into Adam ( Gen 2:7), became Adam's own spirit.

    The Hebrew word "naphach", which is translated as "breathed", can mean breathed or to blow into, or to inflate. The Hebrew word "neshamah", which is translated as "breath", refers to vital breath of inspiration, and is also translated as "spirit" in other Old Testament verses such as in Proverbs 20:27, which states "The spirit ("neshamah") of a man is the candle of the Lord". From the meanings of these Hebrew words, the phrase "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life", from Genesis 2:7 can be restated as "blew into his nostrils the spirit of life". We know Adam's spirit - the breath from God, is what gave him life. Another words, Adam's spirit entering his body from God's breath (or "spirit"), started his heart to beat, and then, Adam's spirit flowed into his bloodstream, causing Adam to become a living soul ( Gen. 2:7). As you can tell from my explanation, God breathed Adam's spirit into him, and, as a result, Adam's soul was created. Some feel that this verse merely says that Adam came to life, but let's take a closer look. How do I know his spirit entered his bloodstream? That word "soul" is translated from the Hebrew word "Nephesh". There is another reference in the Bible, at Leviticus 17:11, which states: For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Another reference is at Deuteronomy 12:23, which also indicates that "the blood is the life". However, in both of these verses, it is also the word "Nephesh", which is, in fact, translated "life", instead of "soul", as it's translated in Genesis 2:7. In Deuteronomy 12:23, God is telling Moses not to allow the people to eat the blood of animals, because "the blood is the soul". Leviticus 17:11 declares that "the soul of the flesh is in the blood".
  • Rob - in Reply on Ezekiel 18
    To me my first impression is it's a secretive type of devil worship .

    Read Deuteronomy 12. 2

    I think that's the verse , other places in the Bible indicates that in the mountains evil things took place , Israel at one time was forbidden to go into the mountains because of the pagan gods and nations that dwelt there .

    New Testament teaches we can not eat at the Lords table and table of devils . Maybe 1 Corinthians it talks about this .
  • Brian on Jeremiah 10
    Deuteronomy 12:30-31 "...How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God..."

    God said do not do as the heathen. These so called Christian holidays are ALL pagan in origin and true Christians do not celebrate them. It takes very little effort to discover where they came from.
  • April on 2 Samuel 5
    I use to wonder about concubines and the many wives then I thought about, Deuteronomy 12:15(KJV)Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy gates,whatsoever thy soul lusteth after,according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee:the unclean and the clean may eat thereof,as of the roebuck and as of the hart.maybe it was ok for whoever he blesses kind of thing.
  • Lu2677 on Matthew 15
    "Not adding man's traditions"; Jeremiah 10:3-4, 1 Timothy 4:1-3, Deuteronomy 12:4,29-32.
    God's thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Amen.
  • Chris on Leviticus 17
    Jeff - Am I Catholic? No! I do not belong to any denomination, nor do I consider myself to be "Christian." I do believe in Christ, but I don't claim the title "Christian" for several reasons. Instead I just consider myself a believer.

    1st: The book of Revelation talks about "Mystery Babylon," where the false prophet will come from in the end days. We are told to flee her. She is also called the "Mother of Har lots." I believe, based on the description, that the Catholic Church is Mystery Babylon, and the denominations are her daughters. Flee the "churches."

    2nd: To be a "Christian" means to be "Christ-like." I mess up and sin everyday, despite knowing better. Not very "Christ-like." Also, if I'm "Christ-like" and sin everyday, then by default that makes Christ like me. That is just arrogant, blasphemous, and puts all of us in a lot of trouble if you know what I mean.

    Lastly: I know a lot of people are about to get really mad over this one, but what this world calls "Christianity" is false. When you think "Christianity" regardless of denomination, most people think: Christmas (birthday), Easter (death), 1st day Sabbath, Christ died on the 6th day and was resurrected on the 1st day, Christ came to bring peace to the planet, Christ had long hair, the "Laws of Moses" are done away with and now we only need love, the "Laws" were a curse, etc. None of these items are true, and the book tells you this. I want no part in this abomination.

    If the above offended you, or you doubt any of it, then please look into it. Research the pagan origins of "Christmas." It has nothing to do with Christ. Search: Yule, Roman Saturnalia, Druidic Winter Solstice, the birthday of every pagan SUN god ever know, among others. Jeremiah 10:2-5 talks about a "Christmas" tree, and was told not to do it. Deuteronomy 12:29-31 talks about not adopting pagan religious customs. Christ was born on the 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles, not "Christmas."

    Christ died on Passover, not pagan Easter. Research it. The 3 symbols of this pagan day are: Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies, and peeps (baby ducks). What does this have to do with Christ being crucified? Nothing! But it does have to do with a certain pagan fertility goddess whose signs were: eggs (woman - fertility, you can do the math), rabbits (fertility - rabbits.. breeding...), and baby ducks (new life). If you are celebrating her special day, these symbols make a lot of sense. Even the name is named after her with a very slight twist.

    The 1st day Sabbath is a Catholic invention. It's not in the Scriptures. The Scriptures says to keep the 7th day Sabbath. Which is from sunset the night before to sunset the day of on our calendars. This is not the Jews Sabbath, it's His.

    The "churches" teach he died on the 6th evening and was resurrected the morning of the 1st day. Christ said he would be in the belly of the earth for 3 days and 3 nights. So mathematically what they teach is impossible. He did die in the evening, in a Biblical day - or around 3 p.m. He was resurrected on the 1st day - the night of (so the night prior on our calendar).
    Which means he died on the 4th day of the week just prior to sunset, and was resurrected just after sunset on the 1st day. 3 days and 3 nights ( 5th n/d, 6th n/d, 7th n/d).

    I already talked about the "Laws of Moses" in a previous post. Christ didn't come to bring peace on earth. Matthew 10:34-36 says in his own words that he didn't come to do that. The exact opposite in fact. The Antichrist comes claiming to be Christ and does that though... Nor did Christ have long hair. 1 Corinthians 11:14-15 says that if a man has long hair it's a shameful thing. So why would Christ do it? He didn't.

    There are so many other false teaching that the "churches" teach, regardless of denomination. I'm not trying to be mean or arrogant, or rude. They are teaching lies. They have taken everything the Scriptures says, and basically turned it upside down. It's wrong, and they are leading untold numbers into the Lake of Fire, and the people have no clue. The Scriptures says that many false prophets will go out among the people and deceive many. Read the book.
