Scripture on What Defiles a Man?

RasTafari Love,

I'm sending forth a list of Scripture for Sabbath /Senbet Iditation and reading, and family reasoning. For the older youth it is a good lesson warning them against Babylon mainstream which puts all of these abominations into the "regular" category.
This list is also one I know is important in the Bobo House for the priesthood. It is called "what defiles a man" but of course this stands for the woman as well.

‘Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God.”(Leviticus 18:30)

Defilement is corruption of the flesh in many different ways. It represents the stain on one's moral fibre, sin, mistakes, lusts, addictions. It brings on sure death and loss of life. Defilement causes one to be unfree in the ceremonial order of the Tabernacle as a priest, server or member of the congregation:

Idolatry                                            Deuteronomy 4:16, Jeremiah 3:9, 1 Corinthians 8:7

Folly                                                Ecclesiastes 10:1

Foolishness                                     Psalm 38:5

Adultery                                          Leviticus 18:20

Fornication and lewdness               2 Corinthians 12:21

Animal and human intercourse      Leviticus 18:23

Father and son sharing women      Amos 2:7, 1 Corinthians 5:1

Bitterness                                       Hebrews 12:15

Medium and familiar spirits          Leviticus 19:31

Sacrifices of children to idols        Leviticus 20:3, Ezekiel 20:26,31

Leprosy/issues of the flesh/the dead       Numbers 5:2

Blood                                                       Isaiah 59:3, Leviticus 3:17

The tongue and unclean lips                    Isaiah 6:5, 59:3, James 3:6 , Mark 7

Perverting the way of the humble           Amos 2:7

Neglecting Sabbath                                 Ezekiel 22:26

Uncleanness is a lust                               2 Peter 2:10

Babylon is a dwelling place of the unclean          Revelation 18:2

Consuming animals that are carnivores or shellfish or unclean    Leviticus 11

Defilement of Priests:

By the dead in Isra'el                        Leviticus 21:1

By a harlot, widowed or divorced woman taken as a wife          Leviticus 21:7, 1 Samuel 2:22

I think also Misusing their position for personal gain   (Pharisees, Eli's sons)   

Blessed Heart of Sabbath
Senbet Selam
