Many are unable to view the bible in a contextual or historical sense because they have been taught that they must abide by every word of God
Maybe they should read the Bible and learn it for themselves. To read anything is to read it in context. To abide by the Bible is to accept it historically and in its context. The Old Testament was written to the nation of Israel that were in a personal relationship with God. They were under the law, and it was written in Deut 4:1-2, Hear now, O Israel, the decrees and laws I am about to teach you. Follow them so that you may live and may go in and take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your fathers, is giving you. 2Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you. They were under the law. Furthermore, under grace, it is written, Revelation 22:18 "I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. Revelation 22:19 And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book."
Many churches today spend too much time defending man made rules and regulations. If our churches would spend more time teaching "PERSONAL" Relationship with God, the need to focus on irrelevant rules and regulations will die.
The infinite wisdom of God is not predicated on rules and regulations, it is predicated on His love for us and our love for Him.
