    Chad: We who are Born-again can eat what-so-ever:1Timothy 4:4-5: every creature of God is good, nothing to be refused, if it be received with Thanksgiving: For it is Sanctified by The Word of God and Prayer.
  • Chad I
    People often misinterpret verses 1-20 by saying Yeshua allowed the consumption of pork, shellfish and other unclean animals. Yeshua rebuked the Pharisees only for their man made law (tradition) of washing hands which is not found anywhere in the law of Moses.

    13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    let the righteous smite me it SHALL BE A KINDNESS let him reprove me its shall be an excellent oil. You want the brethren to rebuke or do you want chastening from the lord which can lead to sin unto death personally I want to be rebuked if its with scripture not with your philosophy
  • Manuelf324
    What we forget as a bible believer is when we rebuke(not scorn which is different) its because we love that person not hate. Heres a verse most kjv bible believers avoid. Thous shalt not HATE THY BROTHER Thou shalt in any wise REBUKE thy neighbor suffer not sin upon him. If you love the brethren you rebuke them you obey God you rebuke them you dont they will get chastened along with you!

    "And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?" It is no secret to anyone who reads the Bible that there are certain kinds of men who will be offended at the directness of the Lord's speech; especially when it exposes sin and hypocrisy. For the men who were chosen to be the Lord's anointed Sent Ones, the rebuke is accepted as a shaming, in order to push them to grow up and be better men.
  • Insight777
    The Jews had laws they followed only in rituals, outward shows of faith. But if their faith required them to actually do its works of charity or forgiveness, they were not interested.
    After all, they do not have to honor their parents or feed the fatherless and widows because they can go to the temple and pay the priests for a helpless animal to be slaughtered in their name and walk out blameless!
