[quote=crono_vivi]* Jesus was ONLY a Man and not God. He NEVER claimed to be God. He spoke to God. He contrasted himself from God.
*An Omniscient being cannot exist if there is free will.
*Jesus was born of the flesh and not of the Holy Spirit
*Leviticus still applies to today
Each of these is an enormous controversy. I would have given each a separate thread.
I will do the last, in this post.
The rites described in Leviticus are there to foreshadow the Christ to come.
Here is Leviticus 14:1-9, for example…
1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "This is the law for the victim of leprosy at the time of his purification. He shall be brought to the priest, 3 who is to go outside the camp to examine him. If the priest finds that the sore of leprosy has healed in the leper, 4 he shall order the man who is to be purified, to get two live, clean birds, as well as some cedar wood, scarlet yarn, and hyssop. 5 The priest shall then order him to slay one of the birds over an earthen vessel with spring water in it. 6 Taking the living bird with the cedar wood, the scarlet yarn and the hyssop, the priest shall dip them all in the blood of the bird that was slain over the spring water, 7 and then sprinkle seven times the man to be purified from his leprosy. When he has thus purified him, he shall let the living bird fly away over the countryside. 8 The man being purified shall then wash his garments and shave off all his hair and bathe in water; only when he is thus made clean may he come inside the camp; but he shall still remain outside his tent for seven days. 9 On the seventh day he shall again shave off all the hair of his head, his beard, his eyebrows, and any other hair he may have, and also wash his garments and bathe his body in water; and so he will be clean.
The bird which is slain is Christ in the 2 Corinthians 5:21 form of Him-Who-did-not-know-sin-Who-was-made-to-be-sin, made to be sin in the sense that Christ ended-up being treated as though He were sin, itself. The bird allowed to fly away is sin itself. When the Christ bird is killed, and its blood splattered on the second bird, the bird flying away is sin being driven away by the sacrificial blood of Christ.
Now, if Christ has already come, why *foreshadow *Christ as He was foreshadowed beginning about 1,500 B.C.?
