At least we can admit that that one is still relevant today.

That is not an answer. Let’s review…
1. You have admitted that some precepts in the bible you find uncomfortable are, and I quote “written to accommodate, with the greatest amount of dignity possible, aspects of life in a Bronze age culture that would not be necessary today.”
2. When asked how do differentiate from those precepts designed to appease a primitive culture and our modern one and apply the bible to it…your answer was “Primarily, because Jesus thought it important enough to affirm God’s description of this Holy union in the New Testament. None of the others were treated so.”
So, how is it ridiculous for me to ask if some precepts in the bible are only designed to fit a primitive culture, what precepts do we use do define our modern culture? Your answer was Jesus…
Again, I ask is he the only measure?

Is only what Jesus said in the bible relevant today?

How do we tell the difference between what is, I quote “written to accommodate, with the greatest amount of dignity possible, aspects of life in a Bronze age culture that would not be necessary today.” and what is “preserve what God considered Holy…” ?

Exactly. So, couldn’t it be said that calling homosexuality a sin and an abomination was just trying to “accommodate” a bronze age culture that is not necessary today?

So, what you’re saying is that the Bible conformed to the culture, region, and society of the time period it was written in?
