    I have a vegetarian/vegan work acquaintance that is regularly unloading his anti-meat propaganda on everyone.. He (and his wife) often use Biblical references in an attempt to make people believe that the unnecessary eating of meat is not only inhumane, but is admonished by God himself...

    "When we learned that Jesus was our way back to God, we all jump at this truth. When we learn that plant-based diet is the way back to a healthy body, we fight, kick & attack such a idea. You're killing yourself & have only yourself to blame. If God wants us to treat the body he gave us as a temple, doesn't it follow to take the best care that we can of our bodies. People continue to eat meat because it is an addiction and the "meat" industry wants you to believe you can only get enough protein if you eat the flesh of a living creature. " My Beef With Meat" is a new book written by a firefighter in Austin, Texas that is the latest testament to a healthier life and debunks most of the lies we choose to believe about why we need meat"

    God killed the first animal, a ram, to clothe Adam and Eve

    after the kosher proscriptions given to the Chosen People, and in the New Testament, God gave Peter a vision that indicated He had cleaned all of the animals, and they were all fit to eat

    that said, nothing ate meat in the Garden of Eden, and nothing will eat meat in the Millenial Kingdom

    You aren't supposed to eat pork or shellfish.


    Christians are quick to forget that.

    Christians pick and choose which part of the bible to follow.

    To me, it has nothing to do with God, because the belief for me isn't there. I don't eat much meat anymore mainly because I'm older now and don't want the saturated fats that come from meat, especially red meat. I think by the time I'm 50, I won't be eating any kind of meat.

    When it comes to protein, I eat a lot of MetRx protein bars and peanut butter.

    Leviticus 11:7-8
    And the pig, because it parts the hoof and is cloven-footed but does not chew the cud, is unclean to you. You shall not eat any of their flesh, and you shall not touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.

    Leviticus 11:1-47

    And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying to them, “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, These are the living things that you may eat among all the animals that are on the earth. Whatever parts the hoof and is cloven-footed and chews the cud, among the animals, you may eat. Nevertheless, among those that chew the cud or part the hoof, you shall not eat these: The camel, because it chews the cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you. And the rock badger, because it chews the cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you. ...


    Isaiah 66:17
    “Those who sanctify and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one in the midst, eating pig's flesh and the abomination and mice, shall come to an end together, declares the Lord.

    In the Old Testament, if you weren't Jewish, you were a Pagan. The laws are for his followers, aka the Jews. New Testament is for everybody

    It is in the bible. Jesus didn't say it's okay to eat pork now. Why just because people are christians they should forget gods commands?

    Guess it's all up for grabs.

    God created and populated a world of free moral agents. in order for those agents to have free will, they had to have alternative choices

    you can obey God, or not. your choice.

    Yes, in the New Testament Jesus renders the Mosaic laws null and void, which means all that stuff is okay and circumcision is no longer mandatory (see Paul's letters for a lot of examples). There are some Christian sects that have popped up that adhere to Mosaic law, though.
