Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are] the ways of death.

This is one of them.

there is a claer command from God and a warning

Isaiah 66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one [tree] in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.
---francis on 6/19/11


Sooner or later ( and i hope not later) We have to reconcile what we believe with what the word of God says, and examine ourselves whether we be in the faith.

There are just too many text OT and NT saying that the word of God and the doctrine of God will not change. Jesus himself even said that he did not come to change the laws, that heaven and earth would pass away but not one jot or tittle of the law would would pass away from the law. Just toomany for us to think we can eat pork with no judgment from God.

PAUL'S ADVISE: 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith, prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
---francis on 6/19/11


francis, as you say (according to the words of God) the laws have not change, but the terms have changed much like a home mortgage. It was said in the OT, for instance, that if a person murders (physically) it is a sin, but in the NT if a person even hates his brother in his heart, it is murder. You see, francis, everything in the OT was physical in nature, everything in the NT is spiritual in nature. Same laws, different terms.

On the other hand, in the OT is was OK to hate your enemies, but in the NT we are to love our enemies.

Actually, the entire laws of the prophets was for the enitre humanrace, but the Jewish people thought it was for them only.

Think about everything the bible has to say about the sure word of God, and the unchanging word of God, consider also everything that the Bible / unchanging word of God has to say about eating swine, even a promised death penalty in Isiaih, think about God not be a respector of person, jew or none jew. Then consider this:
2 Peter 3:16 As also in all his (PAUL'S) epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things HARD TO UNDERSTAND, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the OTHER SCRIPTURES, unto their own destruction.

What is more likely, that God has changed his word, or your teachers have missinterpreted PAUL AND OTHER SCRIPTURES?
---francis on 6/19/11


In Mark and Mathew they eat with unwashed hands. There is no contact with body fluid, nor with the dead to make them unclean.

Mark 7:2 his disciples eat bread with unwashen,
Matthew 15:20 to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
Jesus NEVER spoke of unclean meats

In romans 14 Paul contrast eating Meats verse herbs ( NOT CLEAN MEATS VERES UNCLEAN) 1 Corinthians 10:25

In Acts 10 peters ONLY interpretation is: Acts 10:28 God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean

None of these texts in context or doctrine violate the word of God.

It is more likley that your teachers have made a mistake, than Jesus who said that he did not come to change the law told a lie and changed the law
---francis on 6/19/11




Lev 11:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying,
Lev 11:7 And the swine...he [is] unclean to you.
-interesting how francis pulled Lev 11:11 out and seemingly applied it to swine when in it's context it's refering to sea animals without fins, yet will argue tooth and nail about not pulling Mat 15:11 out of context and applying it to nothing other than not washing your hands.
Romans 14:2-4 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs...let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth...for God is able to make him stand.
---micha9344 on 6/19/11


francis:

Moses said that eating with unclean hands IS unclean. If you believe Moses about pork, you must surely also believe him about unwashed hands - and this DOES conflict with what Jesus said.

Also, what about what Peter and Paul said, that was much more directly on point with regards to pork-eating?
---StrongAxe on 6/19/11


I find it hard to believe there are people who thing this is a valid question.
---deb on 6/18/11


Romans 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

Your unbelief that God will destroy those who eat pork, cannot change the fact that the oracles of God has said it and it will be done.
God will be justified when he destroys those who eat pork knowing that the word of God says that we should not eat it. Those who are destroyed for such sin, will ofcourse agree with God that they have disobeyed his commands and thus deserve death
Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar,

Romans 3:5 what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?
---francis on 6/18/11


1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.



Leviticus 11:7 And the swine, he [is] unclean to you.
Leviticus 11:11 They shall be even an abomination unto you, ye shall not eat of their flesh,
---francis on 6/18/11




The only thing we can do, is trust in the word of God. If God speaks it, it is TRUTH, and the truth of God cannot be changed because God is a Holy God.

Do not let Satan do you ye what he did to Eve. He convinced Eve that nothing would happen if she ate. God has said:
Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Concerning pork God says:
Isaiah 66:17 They that eat swine's flesh.. shall be consumed together,

Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said Ye shall not surely die:

Isaiah 55:11 my word shall not return unto me void,
---francis on 6/18/11


--StrongAxe on 6/18/11
Your interpretation is wrong

JESUS: Matthew 5:17-19 Jesus did not come to change the law or the prohhets, not one jot or tittle shall be removed.
Matthew 15:20 to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. ( in context and in doctrine Jesus is NOT advocating eating anythinbg uncelan. He is speaking about eating with UNWASHEN HANDS)
PAUL: 1 Timothy 4:4-5: Paul says to eat only what is SANCTIFIED by THE WORD OF GOD
PETER: Acts 10:28 but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
Peter's own, and only interpretation is the VISION is God said not to call any MAN unclean
'and you interpretation does not hold true to Hebrew 138-9
---francis on 6/18/11


1 John 3:4 sin is the transgression of the law.

What Makes God holy is His inability to sin, and his unwillingness to accept sin.

Itis a false teaching to believe that God will ever accept SIN, for which Jesus dies, Whetherit is adultery, or eating swine ( which god referred to as an abomination) the death of Jesus for sin, will never enable sin.

1 Corinthians 15:3 Christ died for our sins

Peul even goes as far as saying not to keep company with sinners. How then would he say that any act of sin is now acceptable which caused jesus to suffer?

It is a false teaching that a holy God wil EVER accept sin, even abomination like eating pork.
---francis on 6/18/11


Francis---I surely DO understand. But YOU keep emphasizing that there is nothing new in the New Testament, that we are required to keep all the laws God laid down from the beginning.

This instance seems like a contradiction to what you continue to maintain.
---Donna66 on 6/18/11


francis:

Why do you ignore what three important witnesses in the new testament say about it?

Jesus: Matthew 15:11
"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man, but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man."

Peter: Acts 10:11-15:
Peter is commanded in a vision to eat unclean animals. When he refuses, he is told "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common"

Paul: Colossians 2:16
"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days"
---StrongAxe on 6/18/11


The Bible is very clear. If you seek to be justified by the law, then you have fallen from grace and Christ is become of no effect for you.

That doesnt mean we promote sin, but we refrain from it for a different reason than seeking eternal life from doing good all the time. Noone can, or has ever done that except for Jesus Christ.

You are right, without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sins.

Please note this: Without the shedding of blood there is no remission for aduldery, murder, theft or eating swine.

What you may not YET understand is that the blood of aniamals did not remit sin, it only served as a schoolmaster, teaching the plan of redeemption until Jesus death.

Go back to Genesis 3:15 and you will see that God promised the death of His own for the remission fo sins. the animal sacrifices were as the bible says, a means to TEACH the plan of redeemption

Do not comfuse the plan of redeemption with an act of sin like eatng swine.
---francis on 6/17/11


Francis---Do you still do this?
Lev 1:2-4 ....If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, [even] of the herd, and of [even] of the flock
If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD. And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

Is this how your sins are forgiven? Why not. The Bible doesn't change.

Even if you didnt perform any of these things from this day forward, you still would not be righteous according to the law. According to the law, you must die. YOu are only declared righteous because the righteousness of Jesus Christ is imputed to you as a believer. We obey the law of God out of love, not to gain entrance into his kingdom.

When asked which things Christians should avoid, the list included three things:

2) things strangled
3) blood.
That's it. Pork was not on the list. ---StrongAxe on 6/17/11

Any of these on the list?

1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 15:3 Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures,

---francis on 6/17/11


francis:

Yes, yes, if someone eats pork he is disobeying God - if he is a Jew - because the command to abstain from pork was given to the Jews. But that command was NOT given to everyone else. In particular, it was NOT given to Christians.

Do you go to Jerusalem every year to offer a passover sacrifice? If not, why not? It was a commandment given to the Jews. If you say it's no longer necessary, since Jesus fulfilled that one, why didn't he fulfilled all the others as well?

So is it okay for Eskimos to eat seal?
---John.usa on 6/17/11


Jesus is not a liar. In Romans 10:4,
"For Christ is the end of the law "for righteousness" to everyone who believes" the Grk word for "end" means "fulfillment" or "termination". and is refering not to Christs having perfectly fulfilled the law through His teaching (Matt. 5:17,18) or through His sinless life (2 Cor. 5:21). Instead as the second half of the verse shows, Paul means "that belief in Christ as Lord and Savior ends the sinner's futile quest for righteousness through his imperfect attempts to save himself by efforts to obey the law" (3:20-22, Is 64:6, Col. 2:13,14).

flesh is the greed, lust not the meat we eat.
---nicole on 6/17/11


What exactly did Adam and Eve do to sin? Did they eat of the tree, or did they disobey God?
God himself said that everything he made was good, including the tree of knowledge of Good and evil, but he also said that they should not eat from it.

Those of you who think that eating swine is just a dietary law, consider the other part of that law: Disobedience to God and ignoring a clear warning:

Isaiah 66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
Isaiah 66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.
---francis on 6/17/11


Mima - You MISINTERPRET scripture, because you are not going by the Hebrew. Rom. 10:4 does NOT say that Christ did away with the law, otherwise Christ Himself would be a LIAR. The law spoken of here is SIN - Christ did away with sin, NOT the law of God. How do I know this, Matt. 5:17-19, and also where God says His Word is the same yesterday, today, and FOREVER, and does NOT change. By saying that Christ did away with the law, you call Christ, God, and His Word a LIAR, and say that God changed His mind. Please read Rom. 10:3 (doing things their own way rather than God's through His law).
---Leslie on 6/17/11

Francis - Way to go on the posts. It is TRUE that God goes by what He says is, not by our personal beliefs. The problem is that MOST of the people that have posted on this blog go with their personal beliefs and NOT with the Bible. If they went with the Bible they would agree with you and me which agree with God and His Word, but they don't. That is because they do NOT belong to God, but still belong to the devil according to the Bible.

KarenD - All this info. can be found in the Bible (more spacificly the whole Bible in the orginal Hebrew (God's language)). Look it up - Lev. 11:1-47, Deut. 14:3-21 -food laws, Gentile (Hebrew Dictionary) = lost, Christ did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it (Matt. 5:17-19). What Christ came to abolish (do away with) sin, enmity with God, death (Eph. 2:14-18 - NOT speaking about the law here but about enmity with God) (2 Tim. 1:10). Read the whole Bible in Hebrew and you will get this, otherwise you will misinterpret it.
---Leslie on 6/17/11


Cluny - Do you call yourself a Christian? If so, these laws are NOT just for the Jews but for ALL who are in Christ. God's Word is the same yesterday, today, and FOREVER, it does NOT change. By saying that only the Jews are to go by these laws, and call yourself a Christian, you are saying God and His Word are LIARS, and God has changed His mind. You are also saying you really do NOT belong to God, because you REFUSE to do it His way. God is NOT Burger King - you can NOT have it your way and call yourself His.
---Leslie on 6/17/11


francis:

You seem to forget that everything that is written in the Bible is written in a specific context, and if we ignore that context, we risk misinterpreting what is written.

All 619 of the laws of Moses were written specifically to Israel. They were not written to everyone on the planet.

There have been several scriptures in the New Testament that say that the dietary laws do NOT apply to Christians - by Jesus, Peter, and Paul. Why do you ignore these? When asked which things Christians should avoid, the list included three things:
1) fornication
2) things strangled
3) blood.
That's it. Pork was not on the list. If it was still forbidden, surely it would have been mentioned on this list.

Strongaxe, I mentioned the same thing to francis. I even told him to move forward. I noticed he and others only give the same old testament passages given to the nation of Israel. While many passages apply to us for rightful living, not all the laws pertain to the new believer in Christ, who lives by the Spirit of the Law. The fundamental distortion of legalism is the belief that one can earn one's way into the kingdom of heaven. The Pharisees believed that due to their status as children of Abraham, and to their adherence to the law, they were the children of God. At the core, this was a denial of the gospel.

Who is your god. The fact that you do not eat pork therefore you are rightous or the fact that Jesus died for you so that you can have righteousness. God wants us to be FREE. Not worried about the letter of the law that the Pharieese were so concerned about.

actually the difference between pork eaters and other gentiles is not so big, because most of those who religiously refrain from eating it, usually totally neglect the rest of the food laws Lev 11, 22:8, deut 14:1-21 and etcetera. so stop wining even Paul and Peter did not held to the foodlaws.

Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Anyway, what people seem to forget is this: SIN occurs when we disobey God. It is not just a matter of eating pork, it is a matter of disobediene to the commands of God. And the promise of God to destroy those who eat swne is clearly pointed out in his word. Numbers 23:19 hath he said, and shall he not do [it]?

My parents, as most of their generation of Americans, ate pork their entire lives....and they lived to be 89 and 97.

"Why", why should God destroy people who eat pork? This matter of not eating pork was one of laws given on the OT, true. But, why was it given? Pork is a meat that has to be cooked properly - if it isn't, various diseases can be gotten from pork that is not well-done, for example. At the time God made this law it not always possible to cook pork properly, so rather than try to explain this, God just made it a law, like He did with other dietary & sanitary laws.

All things are edible because they are creations of God - that is, except for man.

Acts 10:10-16
1 Corinthians 8
1 Corinthians 10

Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.

Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not, and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. Romans 1-3

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost

I have never heard the suggestion that Gentile means "lost"

It has always meant, to me, "not Jewish" or "not Israelite"

\\Are you saved? Because Gentile means "lost",\\

Wrong again, Leslie.

Gentile does not mean "lost," but is from the Latin word "gentium"--of the nations, which is a calch of the Hebrew word "goy".

The LXX rendered the Hebrew word as "ethnoi"--"peoples"--and the Latin merely translated the Greek.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Candice and Sag - 1st Candice - Are you saved? Because Gentile means "lost", so how can you be lost and found at the same time, you can't. 2nd Sag - NO where in the N.T. does it say that Jesus and the cross did away with O.T. laws, in fact the opposite is true. The Bible says Jesus came to FULFILL the law, NOT abolish (do away with) it.

Leslie...Have you ever seen how chickens are raised and butchered???? All animals eat stuff we humans would not want to consume. And today some pork cuts are less fat than many beef cuts.

When Jesus returns to earth
"the Lord will come with fire and with his chariots...the Lord will judge all flesh and the slain of the Lord will be many...those eating >SWINE'S FLESH and THE ABOMINATION AND THE MOUSE, shall be consumd together says the Lord. ISA 66:15-17
The Bible is clear. Distinction between clean and unclean meats existed long before the NT was written, the health laws were followed by the leaders and members of the early Church and they will still apply at the time of Christ's return in the future, when He will enforce them. Therefore they are clearly to be observed today
by the members of the modern Church, which "keeps the commandments of God and has the testmony of Jesus Christ REV 12:17,

NO !!!

The laws about what you CAN / CAN'T eat went down the toilet when Jesus Christ came to Earth.

To put things another way, the Old Testment was based on RULES, including the prohibition against eating pork, while the New Testament is based on GRACE and freedom living for Jesus Christ.

Still, there are some good guidelines. You shouldn't eat TOO MUCH and be a GLUTTON. Many folks have ignored this simple guideline and become Fat, Over-Weight, Obese, or worse, Died from complications like Diabetes.

Eat whatever you want that you may LIVE and joyfully PRAISE the Lord!

I am quite disappointed to even see a question like this. In this day and age!Really! Who's going to be in heaven with you,Pierre? If all of the pork eaters go to hell. Just kidding. No Pierre. We(I do eat pork) will be in heaven.
P.S.I usually cook a terrific pork roast around Easter and other days also. Taste just like chicken. Um-m-m

The theme of this blog is really condemning to me. When I was visiting the messianic Jews in Phoenix they always serve sausage at breakfast but they themselves did not eat any. When I inquired about this many said yes I have tasted sausage but as a Jewish person who will be around other Jews(those that don't accept Christ) I feel it would be best for me to refrain from sausage.

No.

But the Bible does say, "Food for the body, and the body for food--but one day God will put an end to BOTH."

Glory to Jesus Christ.

NO, God will not issue any consequences or penalty to anyone who eats pork (know and understand this FOREVER).

The OLD way of worshipping God depended on rules (ordinances) and commandments. The NEW testament devotion SHOULD BE a LOVE RELATIONSHIP DEVOTION (love GOD and have peaceful regard for His offspring...DO NOT glorify MAN, glorify GOD ONLY).

TWICE, an ANGEL told John that no reverence, spiritual regard, or glorification should be given to anyone but GOD ALONE...

Revelation 19:10
"You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you".

Revelation 22:9 "You must not do that!".
....DISREGARD whatever man says about God, God wants love from YOUR heart and mind.

no because we're gentiles, not Jews. We are not under the jewish laws, we are free through Christ.
