Eating Pork And Shellfish

Q. What do you think about eating pork or shellfish? I thoughts Peter’s dream in Acts 10, said all food was acceptable fir Christians to eat, but some prominent Bible teachers say that isn’t so.

A. There are some from the Hebrew Roots and Messianic movements who are trying to lead believers back under the Law, but the majority of Christians are convinced the Bible says all foods are acceptable.

In Matt. 15:11 Jesus said, “What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.”

Paul confirmed this, “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.  These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ ” (Colossians 2:16-17).
