So, you tell everyone that you follow the Bible very closely, right? Or you probably try to live a good life in order to get into heaven? Well, a good majority of people claiming to do to good in the name of God are doing the exact opposite with their actions. Confused? Take a look at several ways that folks are unknowingly disregarding everything mentioned in the Bible and making it harder to make their way through the pearly gates in the process.
The first thing deals with a specific food we’ve all eaten at one time in our life.
10. Fast Isn’t Good
We can all admit to having some fast food every now and then, but Leviticus 3:17 states, “It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that you eat neither fat nor blood.” This makes you feel pretty guilty for all of those late night trips to McDonald’s and KFC.
While you’re waiting in the drive thru for your meal, this next thing is probably something that you normally check in the mirror.
9. Hair Problems
For men that love to cut their hair and beards, the Bible has some words for that, too. Leviticus 19:27 states, “Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.” Barbers and hairstylists aren’t feeling too bad about this kind of sinning.
After you’re done doing the evil deed, you might increase your sinning status with the following item.
8. Fabric Woes
You know those stylish new cool clothes you just bought at the mall? Well, Leviticus 19:19 states, “You shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor shall you wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of material.”
Let’s hope you kept that receipt.
Hopefully your friends will enjoy salad at your next cookout after you read the next slide.
7. R.I.P. BBQs
Leviticus 11:7 states, “And the pig, though it has a divided hoof, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you.” This basically means that all food made from pigs (bacon, sausages, ham) should be removed from your diet entirely.
If you’re wondering whether or not you’ll suffer from the lack of meat, don’t hit up the next person.
6. Don’t Call Me For A Free Reading
You’ve been to enough county fairs to always see that psychic tent with barely anyone attending it. Not only do regular people choose to not buy into it, but Leviticus 19:31 states, “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them.”
Luckily, you’ll never find psychics at this following place.
5. Quiet In Church, Please
If you’re a woman, the Bible tells you to keep quiet in church. 1 Corinthians 14:34 states, “Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says.” Men, on the other hand, are somehow allowed to speak continuously during service.
Most marriage ceremonies held in the church usually wind up leading to sin.
4. Divorce Is A No-No
Divorce rates are falling across the board, which is a good in God’s eye. Corinthians 7:10-11 states, “The wife should not separate from her husband and the husband should not divorce his wife.” Divorces amongst Christian couples are about the same as their secular pals.
Most people tend to get the next thing done to commemorate their relationship, but it’s considered wrong.
3. Getting Inked
You might think you look hip with those tribal tattoos all over your body, but the Bible forbids any sort of ink. Leviticus 19:28 states, “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.”
We’re not sure if tattoo removal will make things better with your relationship with God, but refraining for the following thing will make things better with your fellow man.
2. Rumor Has It
Leviticus 19:16 states, “Do not go about spreading slander among your people.” By this statement, every single gossip magazine shipped to newsstands across the country has committed sin for decades. Luckily, a good majority of them have been taken to court because of slanderous articles.
Be sure to not work on this next day if you value your life.
1. Working 24/7
Sunday is obviously the day for the Lord, and Exodus 31:14 offers this warning: “Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it is to be put to death.” It’s not worth dying because you wanted to save up for that elusive Nintendo Switch.
