  • Here's the passage:

    1 Corinthians 6:18 Shun immorality and all sexual looseness [flee from impurity in thought, word, or deed]. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

    19Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,

    20You were bought with a price [purchased with a [a]preciousness and paid for, [b]made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.

    Location. I don't know about with Christianity but some Jewish people that I know have explained it this way. The hind area of an animal is dirty because it is the last section of digestion, the dirt from the animals body passes through that area. An animals feet are always in the dirt, hence why pig's feet would be unclean. There's more to it though.
