Leviticus 11

Now the Lord spoke... saying... "Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'These are the animals which you may eat among all the animals that are on the earth: Among the animals, whatever divides the hoof, having cloven hooves and chewing the cud--that you may eat. Nevertheless these you shall not eat... the camel (because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves), the rock hyrax (because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves), the hare (because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves), and the swine (though it divides the hoof, yet does not chew the cud)... is unclean to you. Their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch. They are unclean to you.

Acts 10:9-17

"...Peter went up on the housetop to pray... Then he became very hungry and wanted to eat; but while they made ready, he fell into a trance and saw heaven opened and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him... In it were all kinds of four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air. And a voice came to him, 'Rise, Peter; kill and eat.' But Peter said, 'Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean.' And a voice spoke to him again, 'What God has cleansed you must not call common.' This was done three times. And the object was taken up into heaven again. Now while Peter WONDERED within himself WHAT this vision MEANT...

Acts 10:28 (Peter speaking)

"...But God has shown me that I should not call any MAN common or unclean."

Friend, if you will give me 2 1/2 hours and a willingness to think outside the box of what you've already learned and grown up with (both beliefs and eating habits), I believe I can convince you that eating swine flesh (pork), shellfish, and all the few(*) other unclean animals is both destructive to your longterm health AND it is backed up by the writers of the OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS. It's an hour for each of the first 2 interviews, then a half hour to read a few short pages from another site. Will you give just 2 1/2 hours to evaluate something that could significantly affect your welfare for the rest of your life?? I did, over 20 years ago, and I've been greatly blessed ever since, and have no regrets that I've turned from my 30 years of violating God health laws. (But I admit there was mental and emotional pain in the early months.**)

*There are more clean animals than unclean. Think of Adam and Eve in the garden; they could eat from almost ALL the trees except just one. Rebelliously they ate from the one bad one, and skipped all the wonderful ones God had graciously provided for them.
**Someday I'll add a link here describing a couple of painful instances, which were later followed by great blessings, showing that God honors repentance.

This is largely extracted from my Email #5 of 01/22/2008:


In my 7/14/2007 letter, I said, "Some of you know that in the mid 80's, I wondered about and gained a great deal of knowledge and understanding about the wisdom of recognizing that God's health laws in scripture were meant to be practiced always. (I have tapes I can give you.) I gradually embraced a lifestyle of eating the things that God said to eat and abstaining from the things he said would cause severe problems. (And there are a handful of other health areas beyond diet that God tells us to follow.) If these flukes have been there for decades, that very well could *antedate* my journey to embrace God's health laws."

Those tapes I mentioned (each under an hour) were "call-in talk show" radio interviews with a Christian health expert that blew my mind when I stumbled onto the first one while it was airing. I had wondered for several years prior [to 1986] if God might have been wise to distinguish between two categories of animals, clean and unclean. (We dispensationalists had always thought it'd be foolish or legalistic to practice those laws today.) This guy gave amazing light into the matter! For several years back then, I duplicated, lent and gave cassettes of these away. When my dark times began in the 90's, that ceased. But I kept the masters safely preserved and have recently recreated them in digital form for you to download and hear. Many months after it was aired, the program's daily host told me that this one program had generated more requests for cassette copies than any other program during the show's entire 10-year history, regardless of topic! Download this to listen to it, and share with friends you care about.

Some, having heard the above program, still have doubts that the health laws should be followed today. I also recorded the show the next time the guy came on and he added much helpful clarification to the matter. Please listen to this one, too:

For those who might (finally!) be convinced that unclean meat is bad for you, but still insist the New Testament says we are totally free to eat it, I provide you a series of very short articles I recently found. While I can't support everything the group teaches in other areas, this set of short articles (less than a half hour to read) contains the best and most thorough analysis I've seen anywhere in 20+ years of dealing with this subject. Every "problem" verse (New Testament verse) that we've ever tried to use to justify eating unclean meat is dealt with extremely well. This link takes you to the first article. The rest in the series can be accessed through a list on the left side of their page. Read each one in the series as part of your half-hour assignment.

So now you've spent 2 1/2 hours listening to and reading from folks who've jumped ship from unclean meat, and are sailing off into a healthier life to glorify God and advance His kingdom. Yes, most of us grew up in the 20th century eating bacon and pork chops all our lives, even for generations. No, repenting from unclean meat won't save your soul, just like stopping thievery won't. Only embracing Christ as your Lord and Savior can do that. And for those who are already Christians (and might be saying), it's still only one small area of life. But it IS an area big enough that God bothered to speak to us about it, giving us principles to identify which animals he meant us to eat (along with examples). So will you seek to "glorify God in your body" (I Cor. 6:20), and "eat ... to the glory of God" (I Cor. 10:31), now that you've "unlearned" all the bad theology and cultural conditioning you were raised with? Do you still have objections to making this decision? Are they intellectual or are they possibly emotional? ("I don't want to give up what I love".) Be honest with yourself.

(Continuing from Email #5...)

The following several radio shows have the same guest speaker as the interview about clean and unclean foods and are very good, even though 20+ years old.

1986-07-02.Cancer-Prevention.mp3 (13.2MB)
1986-08-19.America's-Sweet-Tooth.mp3 (13.2MB)
1986-09-10.Facts-Fads-Fallacies.mp3 (13.0MB)
1986-10-07.Fasting.mp3 (6.57MB)

The last one is on the biblical topic of fasting. Without minimizing the spiritual dimensions of fasting, the speaker emphasizes the how-to's and health benefits of fasting regularly. I would urge you to download all these radio shows right away, but listen only to the first 1 or 2 right away (on unclean foods). ... I include these links to the other 4 only because I have them ready now. There are a handful more I will be mastering later, all very good and mostly timely even though old. One thing that made all the shows especially interesting and helpful was the call-in nature of the show. Many helpful insights would come as a result of caller questions and comments.

In the Fasting discussion, the story of Paul Bragg was brought up... (To continue reading this discussion, go to this spot in Email #5 by clicking here.)

The only major error in these interviews is that salt is spoken of as something to be avoided. We've learned new things about that in the last few years, and having adequate air-dried sea salt is critical to reclaiming and keeping good health. But of all the tons of insights shared in these interviews, to have only one major mistake is pretty incredible. That's why I said these shows are timeless, though 20+ years old. Keep in mind that it's always true that subsequent generations stand on the shoulders of those who went before.
