If it was God answering your question, don't you think he'd give you an answer that was true? Yet you reject the content (oh, noes, Leviticus doesn't apply, and the NT doesn't count either), and cite the timing instead.

To be fair, both of those exceptions are perfectly Biblical. Leviticus starts out by saying it's a list of rules FOR ISRAELITES retaking the promised land. And again, the epistles are letters and the Church fathers had no way of knowing that they would ever be put into the context of scripture.

Cherry-picking or no, it's a frankly erroneous to look at the Bible without understanding context.
