Fossil Hunting is Unbiblical

Deuteronomy 2:19 says, “When you come to the Ammonites, do not harass them or provoke them to war, for I will not give you possession of any land belonging to the Ammonites.”

And yet I have found online, in direct disobedience to this command, photos of ammonites which have been taken possession of, together with the land they were in:


This Biblical fossil pun was inspired by comments made by Pete Enns and Mark Traphagen on Facebook.

    How is fossil hunting a case of disobedience? Remember, no one living today is the “you” of Deut. 2:19.

    This command was given to the Old Testament Jew. We are New Testament Christians and “We are not under law, but under grace.” Romans 6:14 When will people start to understand that and stop trying to impose Old Testament Jewish law on us New Testament Christians?

      yet christians will cite the OT when it suits them, such as homosexuality and abortion and unconditional support for Israel, 10 commandments, idolatry, not worshiping other gods, etc.
