Do Christians Pick and Choose Which Rules in the Bible to Obey?

Are Christians guilty of picking and choosing which rules in the Bible to obey?  

As Pastor Tim Keller explains, the charge often sounds like this:

"Christians ignore lots of Old Testament texts—about not eating raw meat or pork or shellfish, not executing people for breaking the Sabbath, not wearing garments woven with two kinds of material and so on. Then they condemn homosexuality. Aren’t you just picking and choosing what you want to believe from the Bible?” 

In this featured article, Keller explains the relationship between the Old and New Testament and why some of the things mentioned in the Old Testament are no longer practiced by Christians.

Courage and Godspeed,
