I always thought you could eat what ever you like, but when i looked at these verses again, it doesnt really say eat what ever you want.

Romans 14:3 Let not him who eats certain food look down upon him who abstains from it, nor him who abstains from it find fault with him who eats it, for God has received both of them.
- All of Rom 14 is talking about not judging one another

Matthew 15:10-20
- Is talking about you cant be defiled by not washing your hands

Mark 7:18-19
- Ive been told the Jesus declared all foods clean was added and was not in the orignal bibles

Acts 10
- Peters vision was about not calling gentiles unclean and has nothing to do with food

1Tim 4:4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
-Pork and shrimp etc was never considered food back then.

So even though we are not under the mosaic law anymore, does the bible really say we are free to eat whatever we want?

There's a passage in which Jesus says 'It is not what goes into your mouth that condemns you but what comes out'.

Only going to focus on one thing here.

Pork and shrimp might not have been food for Jews, but they sure were for a whole lot of other cultures/peoples all around the world where they had access to those tasty creatures.

The world was and remains a diverse place - even when Xtians try and make it seem like only the Middle East was doing any living at the time.

RE: Where does the New Testament say christians can eat what ever they like?
..... My guess is that in biblical times there was not yet anything like the modern massive meat inspection, and other food inspection, that is required in many countries. Therefore the clergy then listed certain dangerous foods, such as pork, and prohibited their being eaten.
..... I am reminded that pigs are mentioned in the bible, therefore there must have been some eating of pork by some people nevertheless!

That's about the same way with drinking too much.

I agree, if they had the technology we had now the whole unclean food issue would not have been such a big deal

Someone actually expected christards to live by their own rules?

It's called hypo-christianity for a reason: the christards can ignore their own rules, while expecting everybody else to obey them.

Then again, that's true of all religious cults.

Then again, all religions ARE cults.

Read Acts 15:22-29.
Christians cannot eat blood or things strangled.

All is sound to eat, providing the grace is given.

TI1 4: 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
TI1 4: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

TI1 (Timothy) 4: 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
TI1 4: 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
TI1 4: 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

You have been told wrong the words "katharizon panta bromata" "cleanses all foods." Is in all manuscripts.

Acts 10

It extended to gentiles but it was about food.

You could be right if 1 Tim 4:4 said "all food" but it doesn't, it says "every creature."

With 'Creature' 1 Tim 4:4 denotes 'MEAT and FISH'. All meat and fish comes from creatures.

Ha do, FOOL! Nice to see hear from ya again!

Fool, go read one more time, and, if you don't get it then, just give up!

God tells you, through Jesus, that there are 12 commandments, then there are 12, fool:

Wrong! It says "every creature" and that is what Paul said and meant. Stop trying to put your words in Paul's mouth. Even if it did say "meat and fish" it still says "EVERY!" It does not say "every clean creature" or "every clean meat and fish!" Every means every! You cannot force the Jewish dietary laws onto the NT!
