You are told not to mix linen and wool. Good reason for it as well. There is a chemical reaction when you do. Since this is Shabbat, I am not going into a lengthy dissertation on it right now. Simple solution, don't do it. Don't wear a wool suit with a linen shirt, etc.. Since most of our clothing to day is a form of plastic, we have even bigger problems. That crap actually enters our bodies and sticks around for a long, long time.
The Father's word is eternal. We don't have to have the exact reason on His prohibitions. Not if we love Him and believe He has our best interests at heart.
@Haunted55 Yeah well mainly I ask is cause I casually wear 95% of the time is jeans and a cotton shirt. Wouldn't that count as wearing two different fabrics or no?
@david.obrien1345 from everything I have read and looked up, no. Everything, absolutely everything, has a vibration and chemical make up correct? Cotton is not the same as linen. Jeans, even today, have a cotton make up to them. Even the ones with the stretch, they have a cotton base. From what I have seen, cotton is more of a neutral vibration as is silk. The plastics they have added into the garment industry, I haven't found much information on, to be honest. Having worked in the garment producing area for so many years has given me an idea of them though...I cannot say they would be neutral. They are made in a lab from chemicals so there is negative vibrations from them, but not to the extent you would get from mixing linen and wool. From personal experience...I had a suit of 100% wool, pants and jacket, charcoal grey. I also had an ice blue 100% linen shirt that I wore with that suit. Damn I looked good! Lol, but every single time I wore it, I would break out with these raised welts anywhere the wool and the linen touched my body. Not hives either, they didn't itch. After the 5th or 6th time, I finally had to stop wearing the outfit. Long time before I knew we as Yah's people were told not to do it. So you can form your own opinion if you will.
No, jeans are cotton. You are not to mix thread in a fabric. Linen is stronger than cotton, etc... I bet there is a life lesson in dealing with people in this passage...just saying.
@Woodsie “You must obey all my decrees. “Do not mate two different kinds of animals. Do not plant your field with two different kinds of seed. Do not wear clothing woven from two different kinds of thread.
Leviticus 19:19 NLT
Is it an example of being unequally yoked?
Hebrew is a concrete based language so, thinking about it, it does seem that the idea of unequally yoked could be applied to it in some abstract way, yet being unequally yoked would mean more along the lines of unequally yoking up two oxen to try and plow a field. It’s going to be difficult to get straight paths, and will require intensive work and care to produce a good yield of crops.
While that’s the simple view, light doesn’t mix with darkness, righteousness doesn’t mix with sin, and so yes, wool and linen also, attempting to be mixed together into one garment could be viewed as trying to mix light with dark or righteousness with sin And just shouldn’t be done... bad things tend to happen when two things that are not supposed to be intermingled start intermingling. There’s plenty of exa of that in the scripts. Shalom.
