We all know that pork is unlawful in the Jewish law. Yet the Christians do eat it.. There are 2 general arguments I have heard to justify this behavior: 1. We are not under the law (the curse has been lifted :shrug: ) 2. Jesus stated 'everything is lawful unto you' (he was referring to food in the context) To me I see both of these to be inter-related... The law is lifted because it was 'fulfilled' (i personally disagree with how Christians understand this word but oh well). According to Christian belief 'all was fulfilled' when Christ was crucified. So PRIOR to this point the law was still in effect. The statement 'everything is lawful unto you' was said BEFORE the crucification- but this is supposedly when everything (including pork) was legalized. But Jesus had said that anyone who breaks OR teaches against the old law (which he came to re-affirm) would be called upon by God for doing so..... So I see both of those arguments fail in this, as it leads to these problems: 1. Jesus breaking the law (by teaching everything is lawful even though pork was unlawful) 2. Number 1 leads to the law not being 'fulfilled' 3. Which leads to the curse of the law not being take away (as its not fulfilled) 4. Which leads to Christians still being under the law 5. And that law prohibits pork. Now question: Explain to me how you justify you eating pork from the biblical texts without having Jesus break the law and cause a cascade of other problems which I just listed above. I'm not saying there is a contradiction or anything, I personally believe the Christians have the wrong belief (interpretation) about the Bible. But those of you who do argue for the 2 points (I mentioned in the beginning), explain yourself please. Peace be unto you Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
