Sermons on Christianity vs. World
In Deuteronomy 24:6-25:4 Moses addresses how we are to treat one another in every area of life. Fair treatment especially requires taking care of the weak and powerless. Ultimately, the major ideas of the world today fall short of the requirements of Scripture. It is Christians, in obedience to Christ, empowered by the Spirit, who are able truly to love others.
The food laws in Leviticus and Deuteronomy have always been challenging to Christians. What is the significance of these laws from Deuteronomy 14:1-21? Ultimately these laws were meant to make a distinction between Israel, who was chosen by God and therefore holy, and the world, which is enslaved to death. Not only that, but the doing away of the food laws shows that the nations are no longer in exile but brought near through the blood of Christ.
