Deuteronomy 14:8 (NIV) The pig is also unclean; although it has a divided hoof, it does not chew the cud. You are not to eat their meat or touch their carcasses.
I am a Christian who eats pork. Should I stop? Is there scripture support for me to eat pork or other foods that were declared unclean in the Old Testament?
Peter’s vision in Acts 10 is about people and not food, so this should not be used as an argument. Romans 14 is a better place to consider clean and unclean foods.
Romans 14:2-3, 5-6 (NIV)
2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3 The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them.
5 One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. 6 Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.
There are Christians who do not eat pork and those who do. This passage highlights the importance of personal conviction, doing it to the LORD and not discredited those who have a different conviction. So, whether your conviction has you eating bacon or biscuits for breakfast, do it for the LORD.
Are there any Scripture passages that have helped you with this question?
