      And I pointed out why.

      Allow me to show you:



      The word we translate as "uncleanness" means sexual immorality.


      Strong's h6172

      - Lexical: עֶרְוָה
      - Transliteration: ervah
      - Part of Speech: Noun Feminine
      - Phonetic Spelling: er-vaw'
      - Definition: nakedness.
      - Origin: From arah; nudity, literally (especially the pudenda) or figuratively (disgrace, blemish).
      - Usage: nakedness, shame, unclean(-ness).
      - Translated as (count): the nakedness (22), nakedness (13), your nakedness (6), and the nakedness (2), their nakedness (2), bare (1), her nakedness (1), his nakedness (1), nakedness her (1), or the nakedness (1), to the shame (1), unclean (1), uncleanness (1), your own nakedness (1).



      Spoiler
      Don't know if you're aware of this, but "nakedness" is used several times in the Bible in reference to sexuality.

      For example:

      The exact same word is used in Genesis 9:22 to describe Ham's seduction of Noah's wife.

      And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard.Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent.And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him. - Genesis 9:20-24 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...4&version=NKJV

      In this case (and in the Mosaic law), Noah's nakedness is not referring to Noah being naked, but rather his wife being seduced/raped.


      So yes, in fact, Deuteronomy 24:1 IS talking about sexual immorality.



      Let's just address this one verse (it was one you cited yourself).

      From what I gather, you're claiming "uncleaness" in this text is referring to sexual immorality, is that correct? Then I would ask why the woman wasn't stoned for her sexual immorality?
      Deuteronomy 24:1
      24 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

      Uncleanness does NOT just refer to sexual immorality....a woman was unclean when she was having her period and so many days after. Perhaps this woman had a "woman problem". Bet you didn't think of that, did ya?

        Yes, the gospel before Paul's was "obey the commandments", AND obey the laws set down by Moses for the nation of ISRAEL.

          Because, again, the death penalty is NOT the punishment for fornication.

          Fornication DOES NOT deserve the death penalty.

          Did you notice that the woman was to be given a certificate of divorce?

          Her uncleanness, her sexual immorality, was grounds for her husband to divorce her, as the law stated, and as Jesus reaffirmed in Matthew 5.

          If it were the same Hebrew word, you would have a very strong point.

          However...

          The word translated as "unclean" in Leviticus 15:19 (see below) and and the next several verses is a completely different word than the word used in Deuteronomy 24:1 for "uncleanness":

            What is the systematic method you use to rightly divide the laws for Israel from the laws for the rest of the world?

            Do you have one? Or do you make any division at all between laws for Israel and laws for the world?

            Because if you don't, or if you don't have a method to divide them, then how is it that you can say that murder should be against the law but laws against adultery should not be on the books?

              Was the woman a fornicator while married?

              I thought you said fornicators were not married.

              If she was married, sure seems to me like she'd be committing adultery, and should be stoned.

                Since the passage isn't talking about adultery, but rather about sexual immorality, "uncleanness," I would think not.

                I thought you said fornicators were not married.
                Could you quote me on that?

                If she was married, sure seems to me like she'd be committing adultery, and should be stoned.
                I would agree.

                If she were committing adultery.

                But adultery (and fornication, for that matter) is only one form of sexual immorality.

                Just like all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares, so too all adultery is sexual immorality, but not all sexual immorality is adultery.

                  My "systematic approach" would be to render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's. Whatever government man is under is responsible for making laws and handing out punishments.

                    So then why should it be wrong for a government to take some of God's laws and use them as its own? (eg, the law against perjury)

                      If two unmarried people (male and female) are caught having sex outside of marriage (in other words, fornication), they should be forced to marry, and never be allowed to divorce.

                        I never said it would be wrong.

                        That's the government's job, not mine.

                          I've also said adultery is fornication, yet I specified two unmarried persons in that post.

                          So then why are you opposed to having adultery being illegal?

                          If a government decides to agree with God's law, which says that adultery is a crime, then why do you oppose it being illegal?

                            You keep insisting her "uncleanness" was sexual immorality, but you're boxing yourself into a corner. The issue is uncleanness. Try and stick with that. The text says, "she may go and be another man's wife". What fault, then, are you charging her with that she can freely go be a wife to another Jewish man? Marrying a divorced women with the fault of sexual immorality is fine?

                            Deuteronomy 24:1
                            24 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

                            2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.

                            Rather, it was an "uncleanness" whereby she found "no favour in his eyes". He sent her away guiltless and she was able to marry again. Have you read the rules for uncleanness? Bodily discharges, sores, or abnormal flows of blood... Diseases such as leprosy. Perhaps the woman was a leper or had some bleeding disorder, and you keep accusing her of being an ally cat.
                            Leviticus 15:1-3
                            1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying,

                            2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is unclean.

                            3 And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his uncleanness.

                              You're equivocating two different "uncleanness"-es.

                                Well, I only saw the one post. Words mean lots of different things, so clarifying terms is always a good thing. Personally, I see fornication as between unmarried persons. Otherwise you'd say one was committing adultery if there was a marriage in the mix.



                                So then why are you opposed to having adultery being illegal?

                                If a government decides to agree with God's law, which says that adultery is a crime, then why do you oppose it being illegal?
                                Oops, you're jumping to conclusions. I never once said if the government decided to make it illegal I would oppose it. It was illegal for years.

                                It's the sentence of death that I would object to....were the government ever decide to make it illegal again. I would object to that, because those harsh penalties would result in false accusations and even worse crimes for the coverup.

                                I'm talking basic common sense, here, which I believe is much needed in this discussion
