Some people keep the law by not eating certain foods. They will not eat some things in an effort to please God but do not mind putting on a wool suit with a linen lining. The trouble is that Moses' law also says you are not allowed to wear clothing made of different fabrics. The same law that says you cannot eat pork says you cannot wear wool and linen mixed. That is the law. So, if you wear a wool suit, wear WOOL UNDERWEAR (Lev. 19:19 and Deut. 22:11)!
In other words, if a person uses the Old Testament as the authority for teaching some religious principle, then in order to be consistent, we believe that person should strive to keep ALL the Old Testament.
