Before you eat any more Pork consider what God said


Before you eat that next pulled pork sandwich or slap a pork chop on the grill, you might want to consider what God said in regards to piggies. Most believers today say God's dietary laws, commandments, i.e. His instructions on what His people should eat, have been done away with. They claim that since Yeshua/Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected, God's laws have been done away with. But is this what the bible teaches?

If we look at the scriptures we see that man is created in the image of God ref. Genesis. If we are created in the image of God, then surely God knows what is good for food and what is not. Despite that there are NO prophesies stating that this part of God's instructions have changed, but we don't see any such prophesy or teaching. The only time we see believers using scripture to support a "we can eat everything' belief is by using out of context scritpures. That being said are their medical reasons for people to not eat pork? Yes and here are a few articles which show that God might be smarter than we are when it comes to what is good for food and what is not. Enjoy. 1.

2. Why I Do Not Recommend Pork - Nearly 70 Percent Contaminated with Dangerous Pathogens http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/12/12/eating-pork.aspx

3. Whats in that Pork? Antibiotic resistant bacteria... http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2013/01/what-s-in-that-pork/index.htm

What I find interesting is when men get older and their doctor tells them to stop eating pork and other fatty foods, they stop because their health is in danger. However if they are not in danger they totally disregard God's instructions on what is good for food and what is not.

Something to consider. Leviticus 11 - https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Leviticus%2011&version=NKJV

Also consider that in Isaiah 66:14-24 is referencing a time in our future and God says through the prophet Isaiah that unclean food, the mouse and PORK... "For behold, the Lord will come with fire and with His chariots, like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword the Lord will judge all flesh; and the slain of the Lord shall be many. Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens, after an idol in the midst, EATING SWINE'S FLESH, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, says the Lord." Isaiah 66:14-24 If God knew that He was going to do away with His food laws, then why do we see a prophesy of a time in our future, that these laws have not been done away with? Either God's food laws have been done away with and God's word is wrong or His food laws have never been done away with.

Choose this day whom you shall serve.
