I'm a believer who is sympathetic to Savage's point(s) about the selective application of OT law. But I do think he misses (or underemphasizes) an important point: the early church specifically maintained the prohibition on "sexual immorality" (Acts 15). This is why sexual acts are different from shellfish. If you're going to make Dan's argument, you need to address that as well.

The straightforward answer is that the church leadership at that time was doing what Jesus had instructed them to do: binding and loosing, allowing & disallowing. What they were not doing was hermetically sealing the Truth in mayonaise jar under Funk & Wagnalls' porch for all time. But that is how the current church views scripture, and THAT is the real problem. They have created a definition of Scripture that Scripture doesn't even say about itself.
