Christians get confused about exactly what to do with the commands in the Bible. Do we need to give up pork and shellfish? Is it a sin to eat roadkill or to eat blood sausage? Is it a sin to wear mixed fabric? Is cross-dressing a crime? What about tattoos? What do we do with that command not to boil a kid in its mother's milk? And if none of these commands are for Christians today, then which Bible commands are for today? This book is designed to help you find solid answers to the question, --Which parts of the Bible's teaching are timeless and universal, and which parts are only for the people to whom the Bible was first written?-- We will examine the laws in the Old Testament and the New Testament sin lists, and how they speak to issues such as sex, alcohol and drugs, obscene language, and gambling as they existed in the first-century world, as we seek to discover what's on God's sin list for us today. --It is impressive to observe how such a detailed discussion on 'sin lists' in the entire Bible is presented in such a concise piece . . . I recommend this easy-to-read and rich-content piece to the average Christian reader, students of biblical ethics and reading groups at church sessions.-- --Daniel Darko, PhD, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies, Gordon College, Wenham, Massachusetts --Tom Hobson's What's on God's Sin List for Today . . . is a biblically sound and insightful approach that is convincing, convicting, and redemptive.'' --James Slone, Senior Pastor, St. Matthew United Methodist Church, Belleville, IL --Dr. Hobson's book gives readers fresh insights into the relevance of Old Testament laws for our lives today. For those interested in Christian ethics, it will prove to be a valuable conversation partner.'' --Timothy Saleska, Ph.D, Associate Professor of Exegetical Theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri Tom Hobson has been a pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA) since 1983. He holds degrees from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.
