Should A Woman Attend Church Services During Her Monthly Period? by woye77: 2:15pm On Feb 08, 2010
19 " 'When a woman has her regular flow of blood, the impurity of her monthly period will last seven days, and anyone who touches her will be unclean till evening." Leviticus 15:19

this is what the bible says but nowadays a lot of churches do not obey this concept - is it right for a woman to be in church during her monthly flow? cry

@woye77,

You sound like you're new here. If not, did you miss all the threads on the old and new covenants?

The law you quoted from Leviticus 15 is a part of the first covenant God had with Israel (not with Nigeria or any other Gentile country like our greedy pastors of today would have us believe grin) which ended with the death of Christ. Christians live under a new dispensation and have a new covenant with God, brokered by Christ now, and not Moses (who himself was only pointing forward to Christ).

Its because of this new covenant that me and you (believing you're not a jew) can have a relationship with God, as the first covenant was exclusive to Israel - Abraham's physical descendants through Isaac and Jacob. There are plenty of scriptures on this. Here's one of my favourites (Ephesians 2):


11 Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called the uncircumcision by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands--

12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near in the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, who has made us both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility,

15 by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace,


16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end.

How does this answer your question? Simple! Christians are not required to keep the law of Moses (we're actually warned very seriously, not to dig up anything from it). So whether its this one you brought up (women entering "God's temple"wink during their period, or anyother from old covenant. We have no business keeping them!

And besides, under the new covenant, there is no building or tent-like temple of God anymore to which we can go and expect to find the presence of God or worship etc.

Err,  Try studying the new testament for your self and pay close attention. I promise it won't bite,  too much  grin grin grin grin grin

@petre_007 thanx so much - your reply is quite revealing and detailed - does this law apply to the payment of tithes too?

@Evry1 God is not a man that he shd repent.God gave moses some laws in OT & while some were given by moses who stood as d president of israel then.Jesus upon whom d NT was based abolished no law,but implementation of some that seems babaric was never encouraged.Now if mensural flow had no negative implications,how come Jesus felt a virtue can out of him in Mark5 when d woman with 12yrs flow touched him? It depends on individuals view though,but to me d flow needs to be avoided by men.Afterall its just once a month&lasts for about 5days.If a woman stays away for 5days,she wouldnt die

what are you ranting about?

@woye77,

Yes it includes tithes, firstfruits, sheave offering, wave offering, sabbath keeping, the jewish festivals etc. DOn't have much time now would've loved to discuss more on this issue.

P.S. had to create a separate ID because I tired creating a new thread but kept getting an unusual error message till I was suprisingly told that my posting privileges have been withdrawn. Taught it was another error message but lo and behold, grin

I'll manage this one till the site administrators restore my posting privileges.
