The Bible says "Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.”  Do you follow that law?

    No, I'm not an ancient Israelite or Jew to whom the Law was given to.

    Even Orthodox Jews, who are the closest Jewish denomination to fundamentalism, don't really understand why this provision was included.  Only a tiny number of them follow this rule.

    That law is specific to the "old covenant" to which we are not a legal party. Also, that covenant legally ended. That law no longer exists.

    Is it possible that it was a practical 'law'? They do not have the textiles that we have today.

    Nope. New Covenant, new rules.

    That was in reference to two kinds of fabric which didn't dry at the same rate after being washed.  

    Parts of the Bible are about practical advice, like not eating pork because they figured out that people sometimes got sick from it (trichinosis), and not eating shrimp because they were bottom feeders in less than clean water.  Also how to set up the location of the latrine after making camp.

     No ! Because we Christians are no more under the Mosaic law.

    Polyester and Cotton became a sin in the 1950s. 

    In Leviticus interbreeding of different  species of animals was forbidden and their coats could not be combined.  The same book also tells us to only plant one kind of seed in a field. 

    Those laws go back perhaps 3,000 years.  Written by the Priestly Class...

    That is part of the Mosaic Law consisting of 613 statutes and regulations.  The Mosaic Law was for the Jews and the Jews only.  God made a point of telling them that.  That is not, and has never been, a requirement of Christians.  Since I am a Christian, I do not - and am not obligated to - follow that law.  

    No.

    Jesus Christ did away with many of the meaningless rules and beliefs of Old Testament Judaism.

      Chi girl, why would two fabrics not drying at the same rate be the basis for God telling his people not to mix them?  Do you have a scriptural reference upon which you base this statement?
