How do/should Christians determine what is and is not sin?

2021.12.02 19:09 Pleronomicon How do/should Christians determine what is and is not sin?

I feel like a lot of organized Christianity arbitrarily cleaves to fragments of OT morality without properly integrating it into their understanding. An example of this would be the overall demonization of homosexuality as a sin.
Christ did not abolish the Law, but fulfilled it on our behalf. As I understand it, we are now free to understand the deeper significance of the OT Law, specifically so that we are no longer bound by its many overt prohibitions.

[2Co 3:5-6 NASB20] 5 Not that we are adequate in ourselves [so as] to consider anything as [having come] from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, 6 who also made us adequate [as] servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

Yes, homosexuality was expressly prohibited in ancient Israel under the Mosaic Law; but I think so many Christians fail to realize that the Mosaic Law was largely a polemic against the surrounding idolatrous nations, and its purpose was to specifically segregate Israel from the rest of the world.

Many Christians will quickly point to Romans 1:26-27 for a convenient condemnation against homosexuality, but that seems to detract from the Paul's broader point that man has a tendency to worship nature in place of God (Romans 1:23).

[Rom 1:23 NASB20] 23 and they exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible mankind, of birds, four-footed animals, and crawling creatures.
[Rom 1:26-27 NASB20] 26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged natural relations for that which is contrary to nature, 27 and likewise the men, too, abandoned natural relations with women and burned in their desire toward one another, males with males committing shameful acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

So my question to Christians, (and anyone else who wishes to participate) is this: How do you determine what is spiritually lawful vs unlawful, and how do you avoid setting up a double standard/cherry-picking from the OT?
I could just as easily make this about recreational drug use, or any other activity that organized Christianity likes to single out as sinful activity, but I think homosexuality in the Bible cuts straight to the issue.

2021.12.02 19:09 AlienTraveller7 Those of you who have taken a dna test, what results did you get?

I just ordered a test from myheritage since it was at the lowest price. My people are generally considered to be Domari although we don’t call ourselves that, so it should probably be the similar to Romani except for the European/other western admixture so I am curious especially what Asian populations come up

2021.12.02 19:09 slitherlips Help me wrap my head around splitting a triple monitor setup between a desktop and laptop and being able to switch back and forth.

I have a desktop with 3 monitors, a keyboard, and a mouse hooked to it.
I have a work laptop (and docking station, but docking station is not set up)
I want to be able make it so while I am working, I can use two of my monitors only. I want to leave the third monitor still able to run my desktop. At which point I could 'swap in' an extra mouse (plug into front usb of pc tower) so I can use both computers simultaneously.
Is this even possible?

The speaker added that she believes Congress’ best course of action would be to codify the right to an abortion in federal law rather than relying on repeated rulings upholding Roe v. Wade.
