This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.
SOMEONE SAIIID IT
Disney’s The Jungle Book cast so far: Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Ben Kingsley as the voice of Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of Rakcha, Scarlett Johansson as the voice of Kaa and Idris Elba as the voice of Shere Khan (x x x x)
And not only is the cast amazing, but the film is going to be a mixture of live-action and animation (a-la Mary Poppins). Neel Seth (Mowgli),is going to be the only live-action actor and everyone else’s characters will be animated AND I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED.

YES YES YES OHMYGOD
I’ve actually talked to people about this and they agree and i just wow. You might as well change their names to Marlene and Sirius tbh.
And it fits so so well.
Sirius and James = Eric and Peter
Marlene and Lily = Holly and Alison
I mean Alison was even goddamn ginger, Peter was close enough i mean just look at them and how cute they are just like James and Lily (ish)
Eric is a sports presenter and that could be so Sirius for Quidditch making a tonne of inappropriate jokes while on the job, and his manager is always sighing but he can’t do anything about it because Sirius is just so good at the job i mean damn they get more views just because of him.
Then there was the first date which was a complete fuck up because Eric had a date with another girl straight after and just how Sirius is that it doesn’t get better and Marlene storms off, oh wow they hate each other already yet Peter and Alison AKA James and Lily know they’re perfect for each other.
And he even has a motorbike to go with his complete Sirius personality, which he asked Marlene to try and she fucked up and he couldn’t help but not be mad at her for hurting his baby because it. was. Marlene.
Not to mention making “brownies” together and then sleeping together and being complete ijits the next morning when the inspector comes and they have to hide their tracks
And it even has the huge fights and fuck ups but they know they love each other and that can’t stand to be apart.
Oh god this movie was just so Blackinnon, thank you so much anon for this message. I’m going to leave all of you guys with a couple of stills from the movie
wow Marlene and Sirius don’t know what the hell is happening as always, even baby Harry looks confused
Look at that smug smile tell me that is not Sirius’ smug smile and Marlene. That is a classic ‘wtf’ face
Sirius’ “Marlene what the fuck are you talking about” face
LOOK AT THE SEXUAL TENSION THIS IS WHEN JAMES GOES “just fucking kiss her you dolt”
aw but look at how much they love lil Harry it’s so cute they love him but they don’t know what the fuck they’re doing just look at Marlene she’s got baby food which i bet Sirius and her dared each other to eat at some point
Typical day in day out fights of Blackinnon
