I have heard his more and more and just wanted some insight to what a believe has to say because I have already heard the other side. Also I don't want this to be a convo. about how gays are bad and stuff because in my opinion were all going to the same place. So just keep the answer away from gay hating and were all right.
So the question being "Why does Jesus make it more of a point in the bible to not trust people to eat shrimp (mentioned 8 times) vs. gays ( Mentioned 2 times)?

The whole point of the dietary laws, are that our bodies are a temple unto God. So in reality Christians really should really be eating pork, shrimp, lobster, and crabs because they have more toxins than other animals. But at the same time, if our bodies are really temples we shouldnt be eating extra greezy fried chicken, sodas and all other sorts of unhealthy stuff either.

I would consider both examples you listed as defilement of the temple.

I'm sorry let me start over, baby steps first question. In the bible there is a reference to the word Mazzaroth-found in Job 38:31-32. What does that mean?

So, is Christianity the worshipping of the Sun because I doubt in the bible it met good luck or Mazel tov. The only reason I am saying this is from my own personal research, is that Jesus is depicted in a circle surrounded by his 12 apostle in early Christian churches and early Christians were known as helio gnostics which means "Sun knowers". Please help clarify for me.

If you are refering to the law on dietry requirements, the answer is ..
Because we are under a new agreement [covenant] and not under the old covenant..There has been a change in the Priesthood...We now have a Priest in the manner of Melchizedek...

And the Law was a shadow of the reality which is Christ.

And Christ declared ' all foods clean' by declaring it was not what went into a mans mouth that made him unclean but what proceeded out of his mouth , that made him unclean."

In the new agreement [covenant] the things of the old covenant that were brought into the new covenant are to do with sin and are recorded ,,

We are to abstain from FORNICATION [ sex outside marriage , incest , beastiality , homosexual etc..]

idolatry ,...[greediness , love of money etc]

blood,[murder, blood guilt , eating blood]...

spiritism [occult witchcraft, spells etc]

Christians are in a new agreement....you have to know the terms and conditions before you enter into a covenant mediated by Jesus ..because he takes away our sin.

He washes it away ..then our responsibility is to abstain from being caught up in it again, because every doer of sin is a slave of sin.

Which means you are sold under sin , and can't stop even if you wanted to.

You know?
If Jesus was at my place he could have some que'd oysters, scewered shrimp and smokey pork ribs.
He would even have a cold brew with me, too.
If I didn't have enough in the ice chest, he knows what to do.
It an't like Jesus hasn't done it before.
I love you Jesus and I trust in you, so leave me with some more cold brew.
Hallelujah!

We can set sme traps out along the banks of the river and the crick, then go back and harvest some crawdads.
Boil em up and toss em on some newspaper, then dig--in.

Pigs have always been toxic, then are just scavenger type of animals. Now with technology they have a bit less toxins, but they still carry more toxins that cows, due to their poor digestive system and the fact pigs cant sweat.

If you want to take a biblical approach, no Christians should not eat those animals, as the scripture no where says the dietary laws were changed, it just Christians have flipped and twisted scripture and taken it out of its context to say they can now eat unclean foods.

If a snake and rat were not clean, and the bible says pigs and shrimp are not clean as well, they are not clean. Eat them all you want but dont complain when they make you sick overtime from all the toxins they have in them.

Im not here to star a debate on the dietary laws and the taken out out context Matt 15, Mark 7, Col 2:16, 1 Tim 1:4, Acts 15, or Rom 14:5... start another thread on that if you want.

I think what the OP is trying to say is how is homosexuality a abomination and so wrong and the same bible says eating swine and unclean animals is an abomination as well, yet believers see no problems eating what God said not to eat in Leviticus, but have a problem with Homosexuality that is in the same book as well. While food cant lead to a unclean spirit, homosexuality can.

So why no eat these particular items if they have no effect on the spirit...? Whats the point of the original dietary rules, etc if not to help ones spirit...?

And why are only shrimp and pork singled out? Other animals eat similarly...so why these? Modern production of beef and chickens involves them eating all sorts of nasty waste-by-products - especially cows...eating chickenshyte.

Q; Do you eat fast food? What does your diet look like? What foods do you rely most on during a typical week..?

And you keep making scientific claims with out backing them up. Show me the scientific proof - not that dreck I found when I Google'd the topic - that pork is worse than beef, chicken, etc...

Where is it? Show real scientific proof, not the propaganda that is so readily available...

Why do christians fixate on the one sin.. homosexuality, when divorce, incest, rape, murder, fornication, is much more prevalant? No it's just an excuse to gat bash plain and simple. All sin would be included in their rants why just the gay bashing?
They are all sin..and most people accept they are sin..

but a PR job has been done on homosexuality..

a doctrine of propaganda has been waged to convince people that what God says is a sin..is not a sin. and is an alternative life style..

The propaganda tactics are the same method that Hitler used...using media and the repeating of key phrases ..like ' homophobia '{ say it often enough and vulnerable people believe it] to attack the teaching of scripture that homosexuality or as written men laying with men the same as a woman is an abomination to God..

They hate us because we BELIEVE God over their protestations...and our warning from scripture is also intended to encourage others FAITH who may be tempted to believe a LIE.

Actually he is correct here. Pigs have very poor digestive systems and digest their food in 4 hrs compared to 12 hrs for a cow. Pigs cant sweat, so most of the toxins of a pig stays in their fat since it cant be sweated out. Alot of salt is added to pork for it to even taste the way it does, that is why when people have strokes the 1rst thing the doctor tells them is not to eat pork after because all of the added sodium in it. Yes people can get sick off of raw chicken and beef as well, but it is just about guaranteed you will get sick from raw pork from the worms in them.

God didnt place pigs shrimps and all other bottom feeders on the unclean list for no reason. Shrimp, Lobster, and crab have alot of toxins in them because they eat from the bottom of their waters. I myself barely eat pork anymore after and shrimp after seeing how bad they are for my health.
