Mal 2:11 “Judah has dealt treacherously, and an abomination has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah has profaned the sanctuary of the LORD which He loves and has married the daughter of a foreign god.
Neh 13:1 On that day they read aloud from the book of Moses in the hearing of the people; and there was found written in it that no Ammonite or Moabite should ever enter the assembly of God,
Neh 13:23 In those days I also saw that the Jews had married women from Ashdod, Ammon and Moab.
Num 12:1 Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married (for he had married a Cushite woman);
From all accounts she was Ethiopian.
Baal was a title for many of the foreign gods (Dagon & Asherah) which incorporated intense dedication, with rituals that often revolved around human sacrifice, blood rituals, sexual perversions (orgies & pedophilia) as well as intoxicated meditation and chanting prayers.
1Sam 5:2 Then the Philistines took the ark of God and brought it to the house of Dagon and set it by Dagon.
God is vehemently opposed to any form of discrimination but He is adamantly opposed to foreign gods and lifestyles opposed to His word.
2Co 6:6 in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in genuine love (anypokritos agape),
This unconditional, impersonal love and it is sincere, without hypocrisies. Based in virtue and truth.
2Cor 6:14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
2Co 6:15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?
2Cor 6:16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, “I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 17 “Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE,” says the Lord. “AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you.
Deu 22:9 You shall not sow your vineyard with two kinds of seed, or all the produce of the seed which you have sown and the increase of the vineyard will become defiled.
1Cor 15:33 Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”
Pro 13:20 He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
2Tim 2:16 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness,
Jam 4:4 You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
Isa 59:5 They hatch adders’ (tsepha`) eggs and weave the spider’s web; He who eats of their eggs dies, and from that which is crushed a snake breaks forth.
Jam 1:14 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. 15 Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
If the crime you are accused of involves more than $20 in value, you can have a trial by jury.
Is in place to ensure your financial punishment is not too excessive, it must match the crime if you are convicted and the bail should be in line with the state laws for that crime.
Is an open set of human rights that should be common sense as to how to treat anyone who is a legal citizen. They should not be wrongful imprisoned, treated with dignity & respect by authorities, given freedom to live their lives as long as they don’t break laws and infringe on the rights of others…etc.
This amendment is directed at the power of the states. That each state can have freedom for its people to vote and apply education rights (schools), marriage, licenses for things like business and driving and other trades and privileges for its citizens.
