I really didn't know anyone did this anymore. But, now that everyone is nodding in such firm agreement with that Deuteronomy 18 passage in the abomination question, I guess that means they follow 18:3-4 too.
The priests shall have a right to the following things from the people: from those who are offering a sacrifice, whether the victim is from the herd or from the flock, the priest shall receive the shoulder, the jowls and the stomach.
You shall also give him the first fruits of your grain and wine and oil, as well as the first fruits of the shearing of your flock;
So how does that work? Do you go to a co-op as a congregation, or do you buy a goat and do it in the backyard? This is really fascinating, because I've never met anyone so literal, and yet this place is seemingly crawling with literalists.
I wonder why so many Christians don't have a sense of humor? Even when I was still a practicing Catholic I would have thought this question hilarious! NP has a point and it's something I've never been able to understand. Of course, I just don't understand the thumpers who move from church to church in an attempt to find a version of Christianity that will fit their needs.I don't think any religion is about molding it to fit your own needs and desires. To me that's just wrong, yet a majority of Christians today do just that. They also attempt to "interpret" the Bible in a way that suits their needs rather than try to hear what God is really telling them.

Yes the old testament...where Leviticus is, which supposedly contains the lines against homosexuality. So Christians don't follow the old testament anymore, eh?
