I realize that the Old Testament law poses some really sticky problems. There is a law back there that regulates the conditions under which a man can sell his daughter. What do you do about laws like that? And there is another law that requires us to wear a blue tassel on our clothes. Does modern man have to do that?
Almost everyone agrees that Christians don’t have to do that, but the reasons why they believe that are widely varied and sometimes colorful. And usually, they are wrong.
We get some help with this question from an often-misunderstood passage out of Paul’s letter to the faithful in Colossae.
