Any Kosher Christians?

I'm slowly but surely gonna start eating kosher.

The Torah, given from God to Moses on Mount Sinai, imposes dietary restrictions that form the basis for kosher food requirements. Among these restrictions is a ban upon mixing meat and dairy products ("You shall not boil a kid in its mother's milk"). Kosher animals are those that chew their own cud and have split hooves. Fish must have fins and scales. Fowl have a very detailed list of requirements.
Anyone else fall in this category?

When I was a protestant, there was a time when I considered becoming kosher, but the New Testament talked me out of it. There is a thread in General Theology about understanding the sabbath that explains how the rules have changed.

I assume that you probably know that its not required of Christians, right? What makes you want to do it? There was a time when I thought that it would be more pleasing to God, but I decided that the hassle could be better spent in my life.

Hi there!



Well, slowly, but surely, buy yourself a second refrigerator and a second dishwasher because is the dishes are washed together or if the food is stored together, then it isn't kosher.


Fast food isn't such a problem, always selected the chicken sandwich and there will never be a problem. No more cheeseburgers. Personally, I like Jewish foods, and zatar and sumac are in my array of spices that are regularly used.... but I don't see the necessity of eating kosher although it does seem to help many people with digestive problems

I wish you well in your lifestyle change.

"What makes you want to do it?"

Just to be healthy/er and 2 get the most out of this life.

It's not that hard just don't eat anything that will eat anything.

There are alot of health benefits to eating the foods that God said to eat.

II Corinthians 6:17-16
Hebrews 5:12-13 <<<>>>> www.notmilk.com


My diet so far is
Beef
Eggs
Chiken
Water/or 100% Juice
Vitamins/Supplements
some vegetables
Buttermilk(good for your digestive tract) 1-3 cups a week.

I avoid
Grains(corn, bread, cereal, rice, sugars, etc...)
"Man shall not live by bread alone but by EVERY word of God."

http://mercola.com
http://iknowthecause.com

As for fast food I like KFC or Wendy's since they both have Chiken/Chiken nuggets/Chiken Strips.

There's a lot more to eating Kosher than not mixing milk with meat. I was dating a Jewish girl for a while. You have to wait six hours after eating meat before you can consume any dairy, because the Rabbis have decided that it takes six hours to digest meat. You can't eat anything that hasn't been certified as Kosher, because it may have been made in a process where dairy products and meat products are stored together, or processed through the same machines. The meat must be certified Kosher, and killed in the appropriate manner. No blood...and simply ordering everything well done doesn't cut it. You have to drink only Kosher certified grape juice, as well as only Kosher wine. It it isn't marked approved by the OU, then most orthodox jews won't buy it. There are a lot of products marked K for kosher, but they aren't kosher. After all, you can't trademark or copyright the letter K.

You have to chew Kosher gum, and have separate dishes, refrigerators, and dishwashers for dairy and meat products. You can't eat fast food, unless it's at a Kosher certified restaurant. If a restaurant sells dairy, it cannot sell meat and still be kosher, and if it sells meat, you won't find any dairy...otherwise...not kosher.

If you think that by not eating cheese on your burgers, and buying chicken sandwiches, you are sorely mistaken.

You're either Kosher or you're not. There is no middle ground.

I follow the food laws, bearing in mind the difference between the food laws of the Bible given by Moses in Deu. 14 and Lev 11, and the food laws passed on by those who sit in Moses' seat.

Sometimes when I mistakenly eat pork, I get sick!

I am keeping Kosher most of the time, when I am at home (b/c sometimes I visit people who just don't eat kosher and that don't have anything else to give), but I am doing it because I was jewish and I am just used to it.

I tried it, thought it was healthy for a time. Problem was I couldn't find a kosher meat market in my area so I ended up losing weight. (I guess it was healthy after all)

There is no need to eat kosher at all. In acts 10:9-18 peter is hungry but has no food to eat. The lord appears to him in a vision and shows him all the beasts of the earth clean and "unclean", The lord says to peter, "Rise Peter kill and eat" Peters response to this was, "No Lord it cannot be so, for i have never eaten anything clean or uncommon" then Jesus says, "you must not call common what God has cleansed". So you see we are free to eat what we like, in good control of course.
