This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:

The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.

According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.

When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.

So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.

This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.

You know how parents are so attuned to the sound of their children’s voices that they’ll come out of sleep if their child specifically calls? Well I’m like that with Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice when one of his commercials randomly comes on.

I want Sherlock to end with John and Sherlock getting married and retiring to Sussex to keep bees, and then nothing horrible happens and they just happily and quietly live their lives together, sometimes going on cases, and sometimes not talking for days on end because the two don’t need words anymore, and they’ve never been the best at using them anyway. And the wonderful thing is that because John and Sherlock are fictional characters, if the story ends there, they never have to die, they just get to live on in a small cottage forever. And that is beautiful.

It’s a running theme. As is escaping abusive relationships, I might add.

Oh, very interesting! Thank you for letting me know. I am enjoying reading the original stories so much, and at least half of that enjoyment is coming from the subtext. These are brilliant!
