Why don't Christians keep kosher?

Add New Argument
5 points

Romans 14:14

I am convinced, being fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for that person it is unclean.

Romans 14:20

Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a person to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble.

1 Corinthians 10:25

Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience,

1 Timothy 4:4

For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,

Cool.

But that leads me to this argument... Why was God wrong originally though? Isn't that an example of a form of hypocrisy in the books? If Jesus accepts the teachings of his father, why does he have to correct something that was so blatantly wrong? God gave very strict guidelines about what food was 'unclean.' Why was he wrong?

Very good job. I am glad you actually found something.

Why do Christians not do many things they ostensibly ought to do on account of their purported faith? Because it is by and large a convenience that functions to validate their relatively arbitrary worldview, and not something most would fundamentally inconvenience themselves with.

Fair enough; that's about what I thought. I was curious if there was anything in the Bible that negates that portion of the Old Testament, or if they simply decided that it lacked importance.

I am sure they would find something to point to and excuse their hypocrisy, but that would be the superficial reason rather than the fundamental one.

Some Christians do buy Kosher foods and like the products. Some Christians go to Jewish Delis because the sandwiches are very good.

That has nothing to do with the question.

First, you have no way of knowing if he is a progressive. Second, what did he say that was ignorant? Third, how is he, or what he said, representative of "the Left"?

They read the part where it said that pigs are Satanic and realized the best way to exact revenge is to raise them to be killed.

Christians are hypocrites, they don't do a lot that the Bible says they must do.

I am a hypocrite and I want sole proprietorship of an account picture that is available to anyone; so I will post the polar opposite of anyone who picks that pic, in order to negate their opinion.

List all the things that Christians do that the Bible says they must do.

Well, it is hypocritical to say that you are doing something because it's in the Bible but not do everything that fits that criteria.

You're so mean. He was just asking a reasonable question, he's not at all being an idiot.

The question is why don't they.

How about you stop laughing to yourself and calling people names and start taking part in a conversation?

My question was legitimate. Is there anything in the Bible that negates the dietary restrictions laid out in the Torah?

1 point

To abstain from all unclean animals (food), is Torah (the first five books of the Bible: Genesis through Deuteronomy). To 'keep kosher' the Jewish way, is both Torah and rabbinic. There is a big difference. God requires that we eat only clean meat (Torah: Lev. 11 and Deut. 14), and so do the Rabbis. But the Rabbis go further. Keeping kosher means that one doesn't eat any dairy products with meat. The Rabbis say that one cannot have cheese with clean meat, or even use a plate for meat, that once had cheese on it.

The separation of dairy and meat, with the rabbinic injunction that it's sin if one violates it, is based on the Scripture about not boiling a kid in its mother's milk. The rabbinic view is that one should not eat meat and dairy together thereby avoiding the possibility of breaking the Commandment.1 Of course, God never says in this Commandment that one can't eat meat and dairy together, but this is how the Rabbis have interpreted it.

Now, why don't Christians eat kosher? You did a good job of answering the question "what is some worthless information that you know? " Now it is time to answer the debate question.

cause its mans laws "The fear of man bringeth a snare" its as easy as that.i didnt say they didnt eat it i said its not a law to do so..you seem to be a person that reads something and instead of understanding what you read .you make your own interpretation of what you think it should say

1 point

Ok... why do Christians disagree with this interpretation? Why don't Christians abstain from all unclean animals?

Christians are evil, one of the most hypocritical, judgmental, unlearned religions. They don't know the Scriptures and as soon as they hear the Laws of God start being taught, they deny what the Scriptures say and come out with, "only God can judge me", "God loves everyone and HE'LL forgive me because HE loves me" or the one I love to destroy with Scripture, "it's impossible to keep all the Laws, we are saved by faith, all you have to do is believe on Jesus and you'll go to heaven" lol. Christianity is worse than Islam, and its beliefs are based off of mans own private interpretation of Scriptures, their beliefs are not based on the Bible, nor do they worship the God or the real Jesus Christ that the Bible speaks of.

1 point

God made all things clean through Jesus Christ obviating the need to keep kosher for all except the Jews who keep themselves under the law, by not accepting Christ as the Messiah.

Acts 11:"Why did you go to uncircumcised men and eat with them?" 4* But Peter began and explained to them in order: 5 "I was in the city of Joppa praying; and in a trance I saw a vision, something descending, like a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came down to me. 6 Looking at it closely I observed animals and beasts of prey and reptiles and birds of the air. 7 And I heard a voice saying to me, 'Rise, Peter; kill and eat.' 8 But I said, 'No, Lord; for nothing common or unclean has ever entered my mouth.' 9 But the voice answered a second time from heaven, 'What God has cleansed you must not call common.' 10 This happened three times, and all was drawn up again into heaven.
