interesting Video: Forbidden foods Christians

i just happened to be reading a blog and came across this video. I wonder what you think of it. When i was not Muslim and lived as a christian i ate plenty of pork. Bacon was my absolute favorite. It tasted so darn good. But now that i am Muslim and adhere to the commandment not to eat pork, i now know that the pork taste so darn darn good because the devil beautifies it to keep us in sin (i know some dont' think it's sinful). anyway i no longer eat it. but i'm wondering how you guys especially christian who do eat it view this video and what it says and does it make you change your mind about eating the "other white meat".

  • The Bible explains the the Old Testament no longer applies to us because we are not under the law. It says Jesus came in the New Testament to take us out from under the law and put us under mercy. In other words, we feel the we do not have to follow that, because, well, the Bible says we don't have to. If we were under the law, I'm sure all of would go to hell because it was so strict. That's why Jesus came and took us out from under it and gave us mercy and forgiveness.

  • Romans 3:24 All are justified and made upright and in right standing with God, freely and gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and mercy), through the redemption which is [provided] in Christ Jesus.

    Romans 6:11 Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.

    Romans 8:1 Therefore, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.

    Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death.

  • i found this very interesting for several reasons.

    one, he is right about pigs. pigs are unbelievably disgusting animals, but not near as gross & dangerous as they were 2000 years ago. there are many standards for meat products in America that were not even known about in Bible times. we dont eat a lot of pork in my house, its too much effort cause chicken & beef is easier to cook w/. i dunno about shellfish b/c i havent looked into it, but its way to expensive to worry about haha

    two, this isnt something for Christians to be concerned about. the OT laws are no longer necessary. we dont follow the rules on child birth & menstruation...we are not "unclean" b/c of it nor do we sacrifice animals to rid us of it. Jesus' sacrifice made us clean. another reason not to bother w/ these rules is b/c its not important to our salvation. Jesus is our savior, not the OT rules.

  • three, i cant help but laugh at the crazy size of his church. how much you wanna bet most of those ppl will stop eating pork ONLY b/c he said to...and wont even think about what the NT says about it. just blindly follow whatever he says cause he's famous...then again lots of ppl are guilty of that. im not saying he is a bad person or those who stop eating meat are doing it for the wrong just seems kinda odd.

  • There are 27 books in the New Testament and most of these books are actually letters (sometimes called "epistles"). The book of Romans, for example, was a letter which Paul wrote to the believers who were living in the city of Rome.
