This list is only a few of the many banned acts that can be found in the book of Leviticus in the Christian Bible. They are all fairly normal, mundane or common things that occur regularly, but in the Bible, most of the following are punishable by death... 

1. Mixing fabrics in clothing (19:19) — Damn you cotton-lycra underpants! 

2. Eating fruit from a tree within four years of planting it (19:23) — So... what if you move somewhere new and you don't know how long ago your apple tree was planted? 

3. Trimming your beard (19:27) — All you men with professional jobs are screwed! 

4. Getting tattoos (19:28) — Uh... Oh... 

5. Mistreating foreigners – “the foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born” (19:33-34) — I think we have all (sadly) violated this one at one time or another...  

6. Using dishonest weights and scales (19:35-36) — If we are talking about scales that I might use to weigh myself, then I'm in BIG trouble...
