Leviticus 19:19 Ox And Ass Together

Atheists like to attack this scripture saying God is just pedantic. One quote was:

“irritating. Like odd socks, or different brands of battery.”

Leviticus 19:19

You shall keep My statutes. You shall not let your livestock breed with another kind.”

Deuteronomy 22:10

“You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together.”

So is God being pedantic?

No God teaches about animal kinds and also about the difference.

They might have different characteristics or conflict together when out to work. An Ox is a heavy work animal if it is yoked to a donkey which is generally smaller and not as strong this can cause unnecessary burden and stress on both animals. The Lord teaches that union is important like in marriage a perfect match as God is perfect yoking together compatibility to meld together as one.
