Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have
learned a great deal from you. I'll try to share that knowledge with as
many people as I can. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding
some elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.
Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and
female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring nations. A
friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not
Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in
Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair
price for her?
I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her
period of menstrual uncleanness – Lev. 15:19-24. The problem is
how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.
When I burn a bull on the alter of sacrifice, I know it creates a
pleasing odour for the Lord – Lev. 1:9. The problem is my
neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I
I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2
clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to
kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an
abomination – Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than
homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there
'degrees' of abomination?
Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the alter of God if I have
a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses.
Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair
around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by
Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me
unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different
crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of
two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends
to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to
all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them?
Lev. 24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private
family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws?
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy
considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and
