πŸ‘‘ You Bet Your Sweet Bacon! πŸ₯“

This morning as I was frying my breakfast bacon, I was thinking about allΒ the Christians who pass on this tasty treat due to the Law’s prohibition.Β Despite Paul’s declaration that we are not under the Law (Rom. 6:15), and hisΒ assurance that β€œevery creature of God is good” (I Tim. 4:4), these dear brethrenΒ remain convinced that β€œthe swine…is unclean” (Lev. 11:7).

If this is your religious conviction, we would invite you to consider the reasonΒ God determined that pork was unclean. After God instructed Peter to eat someΒ unclean animals (Acts 10:9-16), you would think that he would say: β€œGod showedΒ me that I should not call any animal unclean.” Instead, he testified that God hadΒ showed him β€œthat I should not call any man common or unclean” (Acts 10:28).Β You see, Peter understood that the only reason God made certain meats uncleanΒ was to teach Israel that certain people were unclean: the Gentiles.

β€œβ€¦I am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other people. Ye shallΒ therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean…” (Lev. 20:24,25).

We know that those who hold that pork is still unclean would never say thatΒ any people are still unclean, and so we invite all who hold this view to recognizeΒ the symbolism that Peter understood and acknowledged, and rejoice withΒ us that in the dispensation of God’s grace there are no foodsβ€”or peopleβ€”thatΒ are unclean in God’s sight. source

Bible Verse for 8/12/20

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. — 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
