Dietary “laws” weren’t laws until Moses. But even Noah knew that there were animals you ate and animals you didn’t. There’s a big difference between following it out of legality, and just realizing that God only designed some of the animals to be eaten. It’s rather funny that many of the people who are so against eating “clean meat” would also never want to eat a fried vulture because it is nasty.
Excellent article. When I discuss ‘unclean meats’ with folks I usually preface it by immediately kicking the religious aspect to the curb. The author explains in detail why humans should not consume ‘unclean meats” and seemed more intent on offering practical reasons, not religious dogma.
There is a major difference between “repealed” and “fulfilled”. No! Yeshua did not repeal any of the covenant terms and conditions. His appearance to Israel fulfilled what was prophesied about his coming in the law and the prophets, as He himself said.[To those who opposed the author’s point of view,] re-read Jeremiah 31:31-33. Read exactly what the New Covenant is; it is the Old Covenant re-established in the hearts of men, rather than tablets of stone. The terms and conditions are the same.
However, if you wish to twist the Scriptures to consume a pork-laden diet, have at it! It might just be detrimental to your spiritual well-being, as well as your physical health.
Jesus, also REPEALED the “law of Moses ” which condemned the use of unclean animals, and told his disciples that he came to fulfil that law, he also states that what he has cleansed he has cleansed. Sorry, your Bible thumping does not wash, so to speak. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but those well versed in the Bible can’t be fooled
This article made me crave bacon, and generally any other “unclean meat” which tastes absolutely delicious. I’m think I’m going to go eat some pig slathered in lobster sauce. Wait, does this mean all of the ham served at the last church potluck was cursed??? Anyways, I love it when people pick and choose scripture to suit their needs. … Now, where did I put that glass of bacon juice…I’m thirsty. Check that log in your own eye before replying.
If we are to follow the laws of Leviticus for what we eat then we should follow all the laws of Leviticus. Including planting two different crops in the same garden. Prohibiting women from wearing the skin of two different animals at the same time. Not cutting a mans hair from his temples. Selling our daughters into slavery.
