Christianity calls for vegetarianism

Oct 17, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Tri-cityherald.com

Most of us are totally disconnected from the process of food production. When taking a bite of pepperoni pizza, we don't think about the fact that we are eating pig.

thank you for sharing your OPINION. Did you have some points to list in illustrating why you are ridiculing this man and what he wrote?

Or are you just a troll spouting off mindlessly in order to see yourself in print?

Mark 7 shows Jesus not caring what you eat but what you say as being more important. He repeals dietary laws by pointing out the body's natural elimination of toxins functioning. And truly, the prohibition against eating pig meat was based on Hebrews learning the Egyptian religion's doctrine that souls of the dead found unworthy to enter heaven were sent back reincarnated as pigs on earth. That's where the pork prohibition originates. Jews following Egyptian superstitions. Or are they...oink or ankh if you're ornery that's my bumperstick advice on the matter after giving it years of dedicated thought and research.

..... The biblical dietary laws were to prevent diseases. Compare with modern government meat inspection laws.

No they were not that. They were part and parcel of Jewish religious warfare against Gentiles. "Unclean" animals were sometimes pagan Goddess worship totem animals and the whole pork prohibition is another Jewish borrowing of Egyptian religious ideas. In the ancient Egyptian religion souls of the dead were weighed against a feather and if found wanting of good character were sent back to earth reincarnated as pigs. No one wanted to eat their cousin Yacob..
