29. That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well."
Text


Can Christians eat Halal food or does that break Christian rules since they pray to another god that rejects both holy ghost and the Son?



Surah 6:5 states:

"This day are things good and pure made lawful to you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them."
Text


People of the Book means Bible in the Koran is that what is implied here I am not sure but if that is the case we have a few problems since Christains can eat anything since it is made pure through Christ.

Early Christians were faced with a similar situation, when buying their "clean" meats from Greek and Roman owned markets.
These meats had been offered up to the idols of their deities.

Christians may eat Halal food, if it meets the Biblical definition of "clean," but a Christian should not eat food sacrificed to idols, if it is a stumbling block to their Christian brothers and sisters.

Paul writes about this dilemma in 1 Corinthians 8, & Romans 14.

Perhaps to explain it in simple English, why there are current people that don't eat pork, comes from ancient history when butchers were serving up the populations, free human flesh, being humans as meat, which was past off as pork, as its impossible to tell the differences between them, and that is why god being Horus, got the #s on man kin, and made the flood to try to get rid of such butchers, of mankind, is there something you dont understand about history

Christians can eat pork because if we give thanks to Jesus Christ the food is made clean and we may eat it. We are denied nothing if we ask in Jesus name. Christians only have 4 commandments versus the jews 613. Those commandmnets are:

1. Do not consume (eat/drink) blood
2. Do not eat things strangled (they retain blood)
3.Do not engage in sexual immorality (fornication, homosexuality, beastiality, orgies etc.)
4. Do not partake of food or things offered to Idols (or even have anything to do with them)

We also observe the 10 commandments and keep the commandments Christ gave to us. Jesus told us that anything we ask in his name that he shall do it for the glory of God.

I recall reading somewhere of a pastor in years gone by, who when asked to offer the blessing at a meal of which the main course was pork, would say: "Lord, if You can bless under the gospel what you condemned under the Law, bless this pig."

Bill Gothard said, "You won't miss out on heaven for eating pork, in fact, you may get there sooner."

Seriously, are Christians forbidden to eat pork like the Jews before them? It is a matter of Law, and the Law was in four layers:

1. The Ten Commandments

2. The 613 Statutes derived from the Ten Commandments

3. The Judgments - how the Statutes applied, and punishments for their violation

4. The ceremonial law - rituals, ordinances, and sacrifices

Some take the position that only #4 was nailed to the cross, and that Christians should observe the rest of the Law in its entirety. If this is true, I'm fairly safe, at least on food issues.

Jesus doesn't forbid us food that he has cleansed.

Simon Peter was on top of the roof of Simon the tanner meditating and he got hungry and had a vision of a carpet unfurling from heaven with all manner of animals and God said "Take Peter, kill and eat" and Peter replied "Not so Lord for you have said that we cannot partake of any unclean animal" and God did this 3 times and said the same thing 3 times and upon the 3rd time he said to Peter "Call not what i have cleansed unclean" (paraphrased).

The moral of the story was this, Cornelius a christian gentile was paying a visit to Peter as he was bidden by Jesus to give a message to Peter that Paul was at his house. Now in those days it was unlawful for a gentile to approach a jew or even intiate dialogue. This was the beginning of the merging between the jew and gentile christians as well were all made whole and new and cleaned in Christ. God was telling Peter not to call clean or common what he had cleaned and blessed.

The second meaning was about food. The vision applied to everything that Jesus blesses and makes clean and pure in his name, which is one reason we usually pray before we eat.

And then there's this little gem:

1 Timothy 4:
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer".

Anyone that tells you eating pork is a sin is preaching doctrines of devils. The Holy Spirit expressly said Every creature of God is good and nothing to be refused, if it be recieved with thanksgiving.

The Old Testament was written for people in the olden days when God was trying to prove a point that you can't live perfectly (try reading Leviticus without falling asleep). In the New Testament, Jesus clearly modifies the law and says "What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean', but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean'" Meaning, food can't make one 'unclean' - only things you say, which directly reflect your heart's condition, can make one 'unclean' So despite what Leviticus says, Christians can eat pork.
