๐Ÿ‘‘ You Bet Your Sweet Bacon! ๐Ÿฅ“

This morning as I was frying my breakfast bacon, I was thinking about allย the Christians who pass on this tasty treat due to the Lawโ€™s prohibition.ย Despite Paulโ€™s declaration that we are not under the Law (Rom. 6:15), and hisย assurance that โ€œevery creature of God is goodโ€ (I Tim. 4:4), these dear brethrenย remain convinced that โ€œthe swineโ€ฆis uncleanโ€ (Lev. 11:7).

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

โ€œโ€ฆI am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other people. Ye shallย therefore put difference between clean beasts and uncleanโ€ฆโ€ (Lev. 20:24,25).

We know that those who hold that pork is still unclean would never say thatย any people are still unclean, and so we invite all who hold this view to recognizeย the symbolism that Peter understood and acknowledged, and rejoice withย us that in the dispensation of Godโ€™s grace there are no foodsโ€”or peopleโ€”thatย are unclean in Godโ€™s sight. source
