    4. 4. Not A Literal Lex Talionis, But Restitution • Exodus 21:34 the owner...shall make restitution… • This word “restitution” is used 15 X’s in the NASU, in the OT. 9X’s from Exodus 21:34 to 22:15, 13 X’s in the Pentateuch • 8/15ths of the NASU uses are in Exodus 22 • When over ½ uses are in 1 chapter… Alert! Alert! • Restitution is not part of Lex Talionis • God is just! • Lex Talionis was given to limit retaliation
    5. 5. Biblical Penalties Are Punishment And/Or Restitution Never Rehabilitation • And Never Revenge • Deuteronomy 32:35 'Vengeance is Mine, and retribution… • Romans 12:19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord. • Hebrews 10:30 For we know Him who said, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY." And again, "THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE."
    6. 6. Exodus 22:1-17 • Exodus 21:1 "Now these are the ordinances which you are to set before them: • Exodus 22 continues;
    7. 7. The Ten Commandments • There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country. "Is there anything breakable in here?" asked the postal clerk. • "Only the Ten Commandments." answered the lady. • There’s actually 613
    8. 8. Exodus 22:16, The Dowry For Virgins • Remember Chuck Smith called dowries “alimony in advance.” It’s to protect divorced women, and make grooms aware of their extreme value. • Exodus 22:16 "If a man seduces a virgin who is not engaged, and lies with her, he must pay a dowry for her to be his wife.
    9. 9. Exodus 22:17, Why Pay If Dad Refuses? • Exodus 22:17 "If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he shall pay money equal to the dowry for virgins. • Not being a virgin would seriously limit her chances of finding an acceptable husband. So she would most likely remain at home forever. • Remember Amnon and Tamar, 2 Samuel 13:12 “But she answered him, "No, my brother, do not violate me, for such a thing is not done in Israel; do not do this disgraceful thing! 13 "As for me, where could I get rid of my reproach? And as for you, you will be like one of the fools in Israel. Now therefore, please speak to the king, for he will not withhold me from you." • 2 Samuel 13:20 …So Tamar remained and was desolate in her brother Absalom's house.
    10. 10. Where Is The USA Headed? • As we examine God’s statutes under the theocracy, His Standard’s, we should examine ourselves.
    11. 11. In the United States, the Bible can no longer be used to define sin , Bill Perkins • …France is set to ban the words "mother" and "father" from all official documents under new plans to legalize gay marriage and give equal adoption rights to homosexual and heterosexual couples. • A notary in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo has sparked controversy by accepting a civil union between three people saying that the idea of a "family" has changed. • In Canada, a 12-year-old girl sued her parents, and won, the right to go on a school trip that her dad had forbidden because she was grounded. Attorneys were supplied to the child under provisions of the "UN Rights of a Child" that Canada passed. • In the United States, since the Bible can no longer be used as the definer of sin, the slippery slope continues to get even worse. What the Bible calls "perversion" is protected by law in the United States. Homosexuality is not only allowed, it is mandated. We've murdered over 50 million innocent
    12. 12. In the United States, the Bible can no longer be used to define sin , Bill Perkins • babies in the womb over the last 50 years and the carnage continues by the minute. The most dangerous place for a black female to be is in her mother's womb! With homosexuals and abortions legally secure, the green light is on for worse perversions... without a hint of public outrage. It's a slippery slope. A new movie, Yellow, has been released that promotes sex/marriage between blood brothers and sisters. • 20 states have now removed or watered down laws forbidding sex with animals. Well why not? Who is to say it's wrong? If you can't use the Bible to define what's good and bad, then you're back to "it's only wrong if you think it's wrong." Or, "Just because it's wrong for you doesn't mean it's wrong for me." All from the pit of hell. • It's only a matter of time until the "I Love To Have Sex with Pigs on Fridays" high school group is afforded equal protection and given Federal Funds to protect and promote their unbiblical lifestyles. …
    13. 13. Exodus 22:18, Sorceress To Live • Exodus 22:18 "You shall not allow a sorceress to live. • What about “Physic Hotlines”? • What about bestiality? • Exodus 22:19 "Whoever lies with an animal shall surely be put to death.
    14. 14. Animal Sex Legal in 20 States • “FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2005 • Animal Sex Legal in 20 States • “Who knew? A Washington legislator has proposed legislation to make sex with animals illegal in her state. Shockingly, only 30 states currently have laws criminalizing sex with animals. In Texas, it violates the "public lewdness" statute if it is done in a public place, but, if you have sex with an animal in the privacy of your own home, you are free to go--unless prosecutors can allege that your conduct caused injury, serious injury, or constituted "torture". In that case, you could be charged under the general animal cruelty statute. Meanwhile, although
    15. 15. Animal Sex Legal in 20 States • it has been struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court, the statute criminalizing consensual sex between members of the same sex is still on the books.” • http://injusticeanywhere.blogspot.com/2005/07/anim al-sex-legal-in-20-states.html • Exodus 22:19 "Whoever lies with an animal shall surely be put to death.
    16. 16. Exodus 22:20-31
    17. 17. Exodus 22:25, Charging Interest • Exodus 22:25 "If you lend money to My people, to the poor among you, you are not to act as a creditor to him; you shall not charge him interest. • There used to be a Christian financial consultant who had a radio ministry and on it he promoted the idea that Christians should not charge interest to other Christians based on this verse. I wrote them a letter, years ago, explaining to him that we were to return like value for like value, that it would be a sin to borrow five good loaves of bread and return instead five moldy loaves. And that would be the equivalent if Christians in this day of rampant inflation loaned money and did not charge interest. I never heard him promote the idea of not charging interest again.
    18. 18. Exodus 22:25, Charging Interest • Exodus 22:25…you are not to act as a creditor to him; you shall not charge him interest. • Leviticus 25:36 'Do not take usurious interest from him… • Deuteronomy 23:20 "You may charge interest to a foreigner, but to your countrymen you shall not charge interest… • Proverbs 28:8 He who increases his wealth by interest and usury… • Matthew 25:27 'Then you ought to have put my money in the bank, and on my arrival I would have received my money back with interest. [Luke 19:23]
    19. 19. Exodus 22:28, Cursing A Ruler • Exodus 22:28 "You shall not curse God, nor curse a ruler of your people. • Romans 13:1 Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore he who resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God… 4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath upon the one who practices evil. • Hebrews 13:17 Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you. • This “God's anointed” idea has been abused by televangelists.
    20. 20. Exodus 23:1-9
    21. 21. Exodus 23:4-5, What About Him? • Exodus 23:4 "If you meet your enemy's ox or his donkey wandering away, you shall surely return it to him. 5 "If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying helpless under its load, you shall refrain from leaving it to him, you shall surely release it with him. • Luke 10:30-37; …33 "But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion,… • Could it be Jesus was expanding on Exodus 23:45?
    22. 22. Exodus 23:7, Innocent Until Shown Guilty • Exodus 23:7…I will not acquit the guilty. • James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all. • There was a tedious four-day trial at which a defendant stoutly maintained his innocence. On the fourth day he suddenly decided to plead guilty. The judge angrily inquired, "Why didn't you plead guilty right at the start and save us all this time, trouble, and cost?" • "Honest, Judge," whined the defendant, "I was convinced I was innocent until I heard all the evidence against me. Author Unknown
    23. 23. Exodus 23:10-19
    24. 24. Exodus 23:14-17, Three Feasts A Year • Exodus 23:14 "Three times a year you shall celebrate a feast to Me….the Feast of Unleavened Bread; …the Feast of the Harvest …the first fruits [Feast of Firstfruits, Feast of Weeks] …the Feast of the Ingathering [Feast of Tabernacles or Booths] at the end of the year… 17 "Three times a year all your males shall appear before the Lord GOD.
    25. 25. Exodus 23:19, • Exodus 23:19 "You shall bring the choice first fruits of your soil into the house of the LORD your God. "You are not to boil a young goat in the milk of its mother. • This is a big deal in keeping kosher. Yet; • Abraham in Genesis 18:8 He took curds and milk and the calf which he had prepared, and placed it before them; and he was standing by them under the tree as they ate.
    26. 26. Exodus 23:20-33
    27. 27. Exodus 23:21-23, Obey My Angel? • Exodus 23:21 "Be on your guard before him and obey his voice; do not be rebellious toward him, for he will not pardon your transgression, since My name is in him. • Deut 30:2...God and obey Him with all your heart and soul… • Jeremiah 7:23…'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people… • John 3:36 "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.“ • Acts 5:29…We must obey God rather than men. • Matthew 4:10 Then Jesus said to him, "Go, Satan! For it is written, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'"
    28. 28. Exo 23:21-23, Who Can Forgive Sins? • Exodus 23:21…for he will not pardon your… • Matthew 9:6 "But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins "-- then He said to the paralytic, "Get up, pick up your bed and go home.” [Mark 2:10, Luke 5:24] • Mark 2:7 "Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone?” [Luke 5:21]
    29. 29. Exodus 23:21-23, My Name? • Exodus 23:21… My name is in him. • Exodus 3:15 God, furthermore, said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.' This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations. • Isaiah 42:8 "I am the LORD, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another… [Isaiah 48:11] • John 5:43 "I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.
    30. 30. Exodus 23:27, Great Confusion • Exodus 23:27 "I will send My terror ahead of you, and throw into confusion all the people among whom you come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. • Exodus 14:24…the LORD looked down on the army of the Egyptians…and brought the army of the Egyptians into confusion. • 1st NASU use of “confusion” and who caused it? • Deuteronomy 7:23 "But the LORD your God will deliver them before you, and will throw them into great confusion until they are destroyed.
    31. 31. Exodus 23:27, Great Confusion • 1 Samuel 5:9…the hand of the LORD was against the city with very great confusion; and He smote the men of the city… 11 …the Philistines …there was a deadly confusion throughout the city; the hand of God was very heavy there. • 1 Samuel 14:20 Then Saul …and behold, every man's sword was against his fellow, and there was very great confusion. • In the future God will do it to Gog; Ezekiel 38:21 "I will call for a sword against him on all My mountains," declares the Lord GOD. "Every man's sword will be against his brother.
    32. 32. Exodus 23:31, Israel’s Boundary? • Exodus 23:31 "I will fix your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River Euphrates; for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you will drive them out before you.
    33. 33. Gen 15:18, The Lord Made A Covenant • Gen 15:18…On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates…. • Not, the Lord and Abram made a covenant • This was not something Abram did.

    37. 37. Exodus 24:4–8, masseboth an altar, Sacred Stones in the Desert • “Take even a one- or two-day trip through the Sinai or Negev deserts and you’ll come across scores of them—standing stones erected in a variety of combinations.
