Among this list of 50 commands and practices from the Old and New Testament I chose to place 35 in the temporary and culture and the remainder in the eternal category I did not put any in the question category because I do not believe in allowing certain things to be left undecided The reason I placed most of these commands and practices in the temporary and cultural category is because these were either helpful gestures to the audience it was speaking to or they were stated in accordance to their particular cultural and era In Romans 1616 it says to greet each other with a holy kiss though it may be a thoughtful gesture and may be considered alright in other cultures it however once applied to a culture where it stresses male to male boundaries this is one that would not go over very well Also in Mark 67 it says to proclaim the word of God two by two as mendicants this type of practice is not for everyone and should only be taken upon someone who has the calling to do so In our world today namely the US commands like these are very inapplicable asking to wash anothers feet could easily be taken as an insult also prohibiting an American women from wearing braided hair gold or pearls would be considered a direct attack on the sovereignty of womens rights The few left that I chose to place in the eternal category were commands and practices that were above cultural constraints and have proved to be universally accepted amongst true Christians The reason for the quotations is because I believe no one knows what true Christianity is Some may say that Colossians 318 goes against the equality between the man and the woman however including the scriptures and my own personal opinion I believe that wives should subject to their husbands Acts 133 fasting is something everyone should partake in
