Read up things the bible clearly states we shouldnt do... But we do them anyway



I saw this post on Zikoko.com and it really got me 
We know the bible can be pretty difficult to accurately interpret. Some people say the Old Testament laws don't count anymore, but others think they still do. So we are asking the bible scholars for help here. We gathered some actions the bible bans both in the old and New Testaments and we'd like to know, are they still sins or not?


1. Checking babes out.

Matthew 5:28:
"But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart."

2. Braiding your hair.

"Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments."

3. Owning expensive outfits.

Leviticus 11:4 reads:
"Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you."

6. Wearing fabric blends, so basically everything in your wardrobe.

"You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together."

7. Gossiping about your colleagues.

11. Tattoos; Sorry, not even one of a cross or a bible verse.

12. Eating more than you have to.
