Jeff - Yes that includes pork. Leviticus 11 has the dietary laws.
As far as the 2 sinks thing like your friend, no. It sounds like he is following priestly Judaism or, and I hate to use the word since we are told not to, "Rabbinical Judaism." They teach the tradition of the elders, or the Talmud. That is not Scriptural. Nowhere in the Torah or Tanakh (Old Testament) does it say to do so. In the Talmud, which is the priestly tradition, many parts not only contradict the Scriptures, but also itself since many priests had differing views. Yet they teach that it is a commandment to obey all of it, and if it contradicts itself, to do both.
Christ told us to beware the leaven of the Pharisees and to purge the old leaven out. That 2 sink thing is an example of leaven. Another one is their tradition of not eating meat and dairy together or on the same dish. Not in the Scriptures, it's Talmud. The priests teach the Talmud is the "authoritative oral tradition given to Moses on Mount Sinai." Yet Deuteronomy 9:10 states that everything Moses was told was written down. Many priests teach that the Talmud trumps the Tanakh.
There are so many things that their priests teach that is not only unScriptural, but in many cases blatantly contradicts Scriptures. Many of their dietary laws, as previously mentioned among others, the days they celebrate many of the Feast days are wrong, that there are 613 commandments (I went through the list and many are not in there, are repeats, or completely taken out of context- my list based solely on theirs ended with 428).
To make a long story short, if you can't find it in the Scriptures, and you need some church or priest to show you in an outside source, a general rule of thumb is to throw it out the window. Also, the Scriptures does not contradict itself. Hope this helps, despite being long.

Jeff - Eating the blood is still a sin, just like all the other laws in the Scripture. Our Heavenly Father does not change - Malachi 3:6. If it was a sin then, it's still a sin now.
Many people think that the Old Testament laws were "Mose's Law" or "the Jew's Law," but they're not. They are His Laws. If you worship Him, then obey His Laws, not what the "Churches" teach. Christ said in Matthew 5:17-18 that he didn't come to do away with the laws, and until heaven and earth pass the law is still here. Over and over in the Scriptures it states that if you love Him, keep his commandments.
I know some will say that I'm being legalistic or "Judaising" or whatever, yet that is not true. In 2 Thessalonians 2:8 the Antichrist is called the "lawless one." The Hebrew word for "law" is Torah. The Torah is also the first 5 books of the Old Testament - where the "laws of Moses" are found. So the Antichrist doesn't obey these laws - and yet the "churches" also teach this exact same doctrine.
Aleister Crowley is a Satanist who wrote "The Book of the Law"(on how to usher in the Age of the Antichrist), said that the 1 law in Satanism is "Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be The Whole of The Law." Anton Levay, founder of the Church of Satan, also declares this as the 1 universal law, except to "do it under love because more people will buy it."
Doesn't that sound like modern day 'Christianity"?
All the "old laws" are still in effect, as are the Feast Days. The only difference is that Christ is our sacrifice - transfered, not abolished.

I think it's best to go conservative and not eat/drink blood. When in doubt, it's better to be safe than sorry. There's no risk in not having it.
LibertyBelleJ: Oh, somebody give this GOP asshat what-for. Matthew 25 doesnt apply to govt. But Genesis & Leviticus do, apparently? .
