The preacher, in his Sunday sermon, used
> "Forgive Your Enemies" as his subject. After a long
> sermon, he asked how many were willing to forgive
> their enemies. About half held up their hands.
> Not satisfied he harangued for another twenty
> minutes and repeated his question. This time he
> received a response of about 80 percent. Still
> unsatisfied, he lectured for another 15 minutes and
> repeated his question. With all thoughts now on
> Sunday dinner, all responded except one elderly lady
> in the rear. "Mrs. Jones, are you not willing to
> forgive your enemies?" "I don't have any," Mrs.
> Jones replied. "Mrs. Jones, that is very unusual.
> How old are you?" "Ninety three." "Mrs. Jones,
> please come down in front and tell the congregation
> how a person can live to be ninety-three, and not
> have an enemy in the world." The little sweetheart
> of a lady tottered down the aisle, very slowly
> turned around and said:
> "It's easy, I just outlived them all

Dr Laura

Living the law
> Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a US radio personality who dispenses advice to
> people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an
> observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according
> to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance.
> The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a US resident,
> which was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:
> Dear Dr. Laura:
> Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I
> have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge
> with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual
> lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that
> Leviticus18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. ... End of debate.
> I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other
> specific laws and how to follow them.
> 1. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a
> pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1: 9. The problem is my neighbors. They
> claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
> 2. 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?
> 3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her
> period of menstrual cleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is, how do
> I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
> 4. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and
> female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of
> mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you
> clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
> 5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2
> clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill
> myself?
> 6. 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?
> 7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar 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?
> 8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair
> around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.
> How should they die?
> 9. 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?
> 10. 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
> of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends
> 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? (Lev. 20:14)
> I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you
> can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and
> unchanging.
