The temple curtain.

Posted: March 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

Matthew 27:31 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split

Jesus death marked the tearing of the curtain that blocked mans entrance into the Holy of  Holies. I have always pondered this, at that moment and from that moment there was no barrier for anyone any longer, when Jesus died on the cross that was the end of barriers between us, the end of barriers between us and God.  Paul the Apostle in one of his finest discourses saidColossians 3:11 11 Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.

Surely then those who would separate those who are in Christ and say that we are less because of our sexuality, or perhaps a disability are in grave error, because when that curtain was ripped in two in the temple there was no one excluded from the presence of God.

There are over 100 verses in the bible that support slavery, but only 6 to do with homosexual acts, even then most of them are to do with the worship of false gods and idols.
