The Dutch Adventist Church creates a magazine, Contact, that goes to about 3000 people who are interested in the Bible. As some of these people have been receiving this magazine for quite a few years, the editors wanted to have a recurring theological column, meant for the long-time readers. This article should match the theme of the edition. The editors asked me to write this column.
This is the eleventh column, which was meant to discuss the topic of purity. This column talks about one of my favourite metaphors of Jesus: people who sift out bugs but swallow camels. Read it here.
