I just saw something shocking on 3ABN. I think it was a seventh day adventist broadcast. The guy spoke against alcohol and smoking and then quoted this verse here and tried to prove this way that drinking alcohol will cause God to destroy you because you defile your body, which is the temple of God. I think that this verse is taken out of context and doesn't support what he said. 1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. But look at this! This is pretty clear on eating pork. Isa 66:15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. Isa 66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many. Isa 66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD. This means that eating pork isn't allowed. Why did nobody ever tell me?! I had already heard that pork is supposed to be not healthy but I thought that you can eat it if you want. But what about the blood in beef? Usually the meat still contains blood and the bible clearly says in the OT and the NT that we shall stay away from blood. Does this mean that christians are only allowed to eat kosher butchered meat like the muslims? Does this mean that a christian cannot even go to a normal butcher and buy meat? Wow, this would be really stupid because the only butchers which do kosher butchering are muslim butchers. Does this mean that I would have to go a muslim butcher to buy my meat? I hope not. And what about chicken? Is chicken okay? Does the bible say anything about chicken? I hope that at least chicken is allowed.
