@LoveTheLord I think people do sometimes cherry pick verses or choose the interpretation of a verse that favors their view rather than critically examining it. We all must guard ourselves against this tendency.
But concerning the specific example you gave - of laws in the OT - it is not cherry picking. Here is an article and short excerpt from it that explains why we do not need to follow all of the OT laws. The gist of it - and I agree - is that there 3 types of law in the OT - ceremonial (laws for the priests and purification of the people), judicial/civil (for the earthly kingdom of Israel) and moral (laws based upon God’s nature and eternally binding). When Jesus’ died on the cross, He put an end to the ceremonial and judicial law - He is our High Priest and King - we live a new life by the Spirit and not by the letter of the law. Our purity is not through sacrifices of goats and bulls, but once and for all by the blood of the Son of God.
“There exists a three-fold division of the law — ceremonial, judicial/civil and moral. The civil and ceremonial law are no longer applicable to us today, while the moral law — which is not culturally contingent — is indeed universally binding.”
Was that helpful? Do you have any other examples that concern you?
May the Lord grant you wisdom in understanding this matter.
