April 1, 2011
Christians get confused about exactly what to do with the commands in the Bible. Do we need to give up pork and shellfish? Is it a sin to eat roadkill or to eat blood sausage? Is it a sin to wear mixed fabric? Is cross-dressing a crime? What about tattoos? What do we do with that command not to boil a kid in its mother’s milk? And if none of these commands are for Christians today, then which Bible commands are for today?
This book is designed to help you find solid answers to the question, “Which parts of the Bible’s teaching are timeless and universal, and which parts are only for the people to whom the Bible was first written?” We will examine the laws in the Old Testament and the New Testament sin lists, and how they speak to issues such as sex, alcohol and drugs, obscene language, and gambling as they existed in the first-century world, as we seek to discover what’s on God’s sin list for us today.Tom Hobson has been a pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA) since 1983. He holds degrees from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.

WHAT’S ON GOD’S SIN LIST FOR TODAY? by Tom Hobson is an interesting non-fiction/religion/spirituality. Filled with interesting answers to questions as to where things are in the Bible and what is from the old testament and what is the new testament. Which was law in the old testament and which is on God’s sin list today. It examines issues such as sex,gambling, alcohol,adultery,and many,many more things. A very interesting and informative book. A great research book. If you enjoy learning more on religion,and spirituality I would suggest you read this title. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
