    I would like complete verification on God's word. I have grown up in a Christian environment. I have heard some religions hold the cow is sacred. Strangely enough have never heard any not eat pork. Holy to eat beef, chicken, turkey, and fish? Unholy to eat pork, crab, shrimp, lobster, and other shell fish as it does not have gone let Laviticus?

    I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

    He is a Jew, which is One Inwardly; and Circumcision is that of The Heart, in The Spirit, and not in The Letter; Whose Praise is not of men, But of God. Romans 2:29

    It’s my belief that all of the KJV Bible is good and should be read in order, in prayer. These commands were given before Jesus came and said, it is not what goes into the mouth that defileth the man, but that which proceeds from...not exact quote but from memory of The Word, carried in my heart. Of course this book is good counsel still today, as it would be unhealthy to eat bats, crows, etc.

    Verse 44~Jehovah God commanded the people to be holy because he was holy. This meant that they had to adhere to God's standards.

    Carol; I like what you wrote, and think that is a good interpretation. May I add, that the parted hoof represents being in the world but not of the world; and chewing the cud, living according to the Word. If we are walking a separate and sanctified life, but not according to the Scriptures; it is unclean. So too if we feed on the Word but don't live according to it! We have to be complete in God.
