It’s without no doubt that the Bible can sometimes be pretty difficult to interpret.

Apparently, others argue that the laws of the Old Testament doesn’t count anymore, while other Bible Scholars still thinks they do.

So we are asking the bible scholars for help here. We gathered some actions the bible bans both in the old and New Testaments and we’d like to know, are they still sins or not?

1 Timothy 2:9:

“Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments.”

  1. I pity the bible shaa! most people have turned it so upside down! anyways the ability to see comes from above!

    • how can u say u pity the Bible…u should be pitying those that are neglecting the standard of the Bible..

  2. Ehm.about not eating fat and blood its was only applicable during the peace offering.bt ah dnt think its hygienic to eat blood meal because the blood of an animal its is life,but as 4 fat i tink its ok to eat.

  3. D holy spirit is not an author of confusion,instead he allows liberty to prevail wherever he abounds.D mosaic law was made by God which leads to condemnation while grace dat leads to justification came with Jesus.We must av a clear conscience b4 God& man & must not b an offence to anyone,in summary “he dat knowet to do good and doet it not to him it is a sin”

  4. Hell fire wil b so full nd only fire will be saved, the bible says ; a woman must nt put on what belongs to a man and a man must nt put on what belongs to a woman, it is nt proper for women to put on trouser

  5. The bible cannot be changed. It is only God the can judge and the full parameters for his judgment we don’t know.

  6. The word of God stands forever. The heaven and the earth with will pass away but not the word of God.

  7. Pls we are in d dispensation of grace d bible said if u want to follow d law follow it to d latter or choose grace

    • Dear Omoye Anita, to change your way aright, you need to first of acknowledge your sinful ways of life and that with your own strength or personal acts of righteousness, you can’t change nor save yourself. Thirdly, believe that for you and your sins, Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried but rose up for your justification on the third day. Now repent of your sins and confess them all them to God. Pray in faith and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Believe in God’s mercy and Faithfulness and find a Bible based church and join them for fellowship and spiritual growth. God bless. Read in d Bible – John 3:1-18; Romans 10:6-13.

  8. Be led by the spirit of God. For as many as are LED by the SPIRIT of GOD, these are the SONS of GOD. Rom 8:14

  9. The new testament made us to understand that it is what comes out of ur mouth that makes you unclean and not what you eat, however, if think that what you are eating is bad, then it becomes sin because it is not based on faith. Praise the Lord

  10. Read also leviticus 11:30. That we re living d era of grace does mean u shouldn’t keep to Gods commands. Romans 6:1

  11. most of the scriptural backings* are out of context…..I personally do not agree to most of these, was it not God that asked Peter to eat unclean meat saying He had made them clean?? Why do you think Roman soldiers would tear Christ garment and share them amongst themselves by casting lots if that garment was not expensive??…. etc….

  12. Whoever posted this didn’t read meaning into most of the Bible verses, i.e: 1Tim 2:9 – it means that women should adorn themselves with good deeds as befits religious women. It’s dozn’t refer to material things, n it dozn’t mean women shudn’t wear gold or braids. Pls. Read also verse 10 to understand beta.

  13. Well ! The bible explicitly said all that… But my question is simple… Y’all can do any or all of the above but God’s mercy/favor can find you becos of your kind spirit & love but on the other hand you can keep those statutes but still fall out of God’s mercy/favor for lack of love and kind spirit.

  14. It’s nt dat we dn’t undastnd d bible or nt go 2 church or @least nt hear preaching bt d truth is dat human being is naturally sinful dat’s y we r prayng 4 grace evry day, may God hv mercy on us. Amen.

  15. Truly, even Jesus Christ says, He did not come to destroy all Laws and Commands giving to Prophets. Instead , He came to fulfilled it. He went on to say that, if the law given to Moses says, anyone that comets idolatry sin against God, now Christ added by saying, he who look after a woman lustfully comets Sin in his heart. Matthew 5:28 The Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation are words from God Most High to Humanity. We humans love to be save, but we don’t want to leave as Christ want us to. Yes we are in the time of grace, but that is not a free ticket to go on sinning after we’ve been saved. Grace is a word refer to a second Chance before we die. When we utilise the grace giving to us by living a holy life, we are rest assure of gaining it when Christ Jesus comes. Can we go on sinning so that grace can still abide? My people parish for lack of wisdom. Can you tell why the world climate change & why the rate of keeling did raise? If you can’t give this answer, please get right with God before its too late my friends. Christ is coming for holy people, not unholy. Don’t be deceived. Shalom

  16. The laws are outdated and were not meant for humanity as a whole in any case .The jewish god is just as real as the yoruba gods,Zeus,Thor and all the others ever imagined by man.

  17. Realize you are a sinner.Confess your sins,Ask for forgiveness.Forsake the sins.Accept Jesus.The blood of Jesus cleanses all sin.Ask for God’s grace to live a sin-free life.

  18. First of all accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Saviour by confessing your sins. Find a believing Bible church near you for fellowship. Draw close to God by reading His words daily. for more details send feedback to [email protected]

  21. This people don’t understand the bible for example, the bible said ‘not with broided hair’ broided is an archaic word for embroidered. It does not mean braided.

  22. Hebrews 12:18-20 KJV For ye are not come unto the mount that might (not) be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, [19] And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: [20] (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: THIS IS THE REAL FACE OF THE LAW FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T KNOW. IT WAS NEVER INTENDED FOR GOOD NOR FOR SALVATION RATHER FOR ENSLAVEMENT THROUGH THE POWERFUL ARM OF FEAR OR RATHER TO PUT THEM UNDER GAURD TILL THE TIME OF GRACE. SO NOW THAT THE GRACE HAS COME, WHY DO WE WISH TO BE ENSLAVED AGAIN. ? THE PROBLEM OF TODAY’S CHURCH IS VERY COMPARABLE TO “STOCKHOLM SYNDROME”. WE HAVE BEEN SET FREE FROM THE LAW BUT WE, HAVING BEEN ENSLAVED THEREIN FOR SO LONG, ARE SOMEHOW IN LOVE WITH IT WHILE KNOWING FULLY WELL THAT A MAN CAN NEVER BE SAVED THROUGH THE DEEDS OF THE LAW AS IT IS ALSO WRITTEN. PAUL SAID, Colossians 2:16-17 KJV Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days : [17] Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. SO I HOPE THAT SOMEONE SHOULD UNDERSTAND ONCE AND FOR ALL THAT THE ENTIRE LAW WITH IT’S ORDINANCES IS JUST THE SHADOW OF THE ORIGINAL WAY TO GOD WHICH IS CHRIST… AND THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST IS THE SPIRIT OF LIBERTY…Besides Paul clearly said in Hebrew 9:10 that the law was IMPOSED ON THEM until the time of reformation. Now if the reformation has come which is grace…., why do we still want to remain enslaved by that which was imposed…. or don’t we understand what it means to impose something on someone whereas God is all-loving. Do we think it was His goods will to impose slavery on His people. Meanwhile let’s not forget that the law was given by (the hands of) angels whereas grace came by the hands of SON… SO THEN JUDGE FOR YOURSELVES WHICH IS MORE SUPERIOR, THAT WHICH WAS MINISTERED BY ANGELS OR THAT WHICH WAS INSTITUTED BY THE SON THROUGH HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD. .?

  24. All the verses quoted here were old testament. jesus came to deliver us from every kind of slavery and bondage. the new testament is a standard to follow,but we shouldnt ignore the ten commandments though. may God help us!

  25. Most of us know what God said but do not know what he is saying now, well some are correct while some are totally out of point, may his grace see us through.

  26. When it comes to God law it doesn’t change dear brothers /sister’s. God himself clarified it “The God of yesterday is the same of today and tomorrow”. Many of us will loose the kingdom of heaven because of negligence the rule of God is the same of the old testament and the new testament. If the rules of God could be abolished than he would have forgiven Adam and Eve when they committed the first sin in the world but he has proven to us that his rules will never be abolished neither changed by no man neither him. Following God laws is not easy neither hard to abide to them it requires dedication and consistency prayers..

  27. We are saved by grace. Therefore we are not under the law. Jesus died to fulfill the laws of moses for us so we are not bound by the law but by Grace. Jesus became a curse for us by hanging on the tree and by that He broke the power of the law and has given us accept to God just as we are. For by works shall no man prevail. The life we now live is through Christ who paid the penalty for all and every offence we have, may, or will ever commit contrary to the law. So people we are saved by Grace. That however doesn’t give license to commit sin. The power of God through Grace is able to guide us in the right path as we renew our minds daily in God’s word. As we behold Him face to face as a mirror, we are changed from glory to glory. Galatians 2:16; Knowing that a man is not justified by rthge words of the law, but by faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the words of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. So choose which one you would rather walk under: grace or the law. Mind you there over 600 ordinances and statues under the law that is aside the 12 commandments that u MUST not violate if u operate under the law. If you break one, u are guilty of all. Think about it. Jesus Christ is The Fulfillment of the requirements of the law.

  28. Matthew 15:11……. Please let’s learn to read the Bible… We are saved through Christ. Whatever goes into you (your mouth) doesn’t make you unclean.. The first about checking out a lady is wrong, that of braided hair was said to keep the women in check, there is nothing wrong in looking good.. My future wife doesn’t have to look poor because she is serving God. She is meant to show forth the Glory of God in her, and i don’t see that being fully expressed in poverty.

  30. May the Lord help us all. We are saved by Grace and not by law. Jesus Christ is the Grace of God upon those that believe in Him. Read Romans 8 v 1- 5. No more condemnation for those that believed in Him

  31. The Bible is the word of God, now you must believe so and totality of it, before the grace to abide by it can come and gradually from one stage to another but the fact that is difficult for you to obey doesn’t mean it obsolete or not obey by someone else.

  32. All well said. You are to decide which to follow – the law or the grace. By the law you must keep all to be justified, by the grace, Christ has fulfilled the law for you, then all you need do is to surrender all to Him by believing in Him for He will save you to the end. ‘Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them’, Heb. 7:25
