We have previously written two articles on our understanding of the commandments regarding clean and unclean. We have since received some questions which we were very interested to find answers for. One of these questions are: How do we make sure we do not come into contact with anything or anyone who is unclean in order to make sure we don’t become unclean? We might, unknowingly, touch a person who is unclean or use public transport and sit on a chair where an unclean person sat. We might, for this reason, always be in an unclean state. The question is, does this really matter? Should we even pursue this?
We often have discussions regarding clean and unclean and how this impacts us. This is a fascinating topic and we can spend many hours studying it and still learn something every time. We have come to realize that these instructions on clean and unclean, were given for our benefit. You can read more about it in ” Uncleanness and separation…are these commandments still for us?” However, there is even more significance to it. YHVH’s commandments, including these on clean and unclean, were given to reveal His character and ways to us. It is a shadow of His essence…We shall expand on this as well as spiritual uncleanness in this article.
