Hebrews 10:1-18

This morning I have a bit of a quiz for you. It’s going to require you to type an answer in the chat. So grab your phones or keyboard, and get ready to put your answer in on Facebook, Youtube, or in the chat on the website. So across the world, there are all sorts of weird laws. But how weird can they get? I want you to answer Real or Fake in the chat, depending on if you think it is an actual law or something I made up. Now some of these laws are not in effect today, but were apparently at some point enforced. And participate, don’t be afraid to get it wrong, some of them are quite odd. 

Okay, let’s do a practice one. 

It’s illegal to wear a Winnie The Pooh shirt in Poland (REAL) 
It is illegal to dance in the dark after midnight in Japan (REAL) 
It’s illegal to display a peace sign on public buildings in Delaware (FAKE) 
In Alabama, it is illegal to wear a fake mustache that causes laughter in Church (REAL) 
In Florida, you are not allowed to feed alligators with fried chicken. (FAKE) 
In Tylertown, Mississippi, is against the law to shave in the center of Main Street. (REAL)
In Florida, if an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle. (REAL) 

How did you do? It makes you wonder why these are real! Like what scenario happened that they went through the process to make an official law to mandate that Elephants need to pay for parking when parked at a meter?

Some laws can feel irrelevant when we are so far removed from them. They aren’t relevant to us. We can feel the same way about the Old Testament Law.
