Leviticus 19:19

19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.

Like a lot of scripture, I have seen Leviticus 19:19 abused. This scripture is often taken out of context to try to show that the Law has things written in it that are just too ridiculous to try to apply to our lives today. So scriptures like Leviticus 19:19 are simply thrown out as non-sense or even worse used as a stumbling block by unbelievers to generate silly questions for Christians to answer.

Woven into the Law that Moses was repeating to the nation of Israel were also things that helped them be a holy and peculiar people. A scripture like Leviticus 19:19 must be looked at through both of the lens of time period and culture. Only the heart of a person who is willing to look deeper into what the Lord is saying, will stop long enough to meditate on all of the factors as to why the Lord would give such a commandment.

When a person approaches the bible with a heart that is not surrendered and wants to do the things that it wants to do,  it will not matter what is written in the bible.
