    "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common." We, as the children of God, should discern what is sacred and holy, in the same Spirit as our Father in heaven. The redemption of a man's soul, and all that goes into his salvation, is precious; and true conversions rare. Insomuch as we should carefully scrutinize to assure someone's right repentance and faith; by so much our joy when we see it!

    In verse 7 GOD was trying to show Peter that everything and everyone belongs to Him. And if He says its clean and good who are we to not obey His word.
