The Bible has been around for thousands of years, and times have changed drastically during its existence. Activities that were once considered inappropriate, such as eating pork and getting tattoos, are now embraced and performed by many. This is especially true of biblical verses from the Old Testament, which diverges from the teachings of the New Testament in many ways. Here are thirty-five everyday activities in modern life that are banned by the Bible.
Eating Fatty, Bloody Food
Some take Leviticus 3:17 to mean finer foods are out of bounds. After all, the verse says that “It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that you eat neither fat nor blood.”
Divorcing A Spouse
1 Corinthians 7:10-11 denounces divorce: “The wife should not separate from her husband and the husband should not divorce his wife.” Of course, when adultery was punishable by public stoning, following this rule was just sensible.
