    Paul warns the Gentile church against eating meat that is strangled or has blood in it. nowadays meat you buy in shops is rarely strangled, so not a worry. But the meat that has blood in it? should we be getting rid of the blood and what is the best way to do this?

    I used to soak the meat (didn't do it with poultry, heard that can be a health risk) in water with rock salt in and let the blood drain out before cooking it. I stopped doing it eventually because it felt like a hassle and also i felt weird doing it.

    it was like that time i tried to cover my head but i just felt wrong doing it. i kept hearing osmething inside me telling me "you are putting yourself back under law, not grace."

    but now i am wondering? it seems some christians do still follow the advice on head covering so i wondered about this with the blood? am i deceived somehow?

    Hamburger et al. is full of blood. The only way to get meat with minimal blood in it is to buy kosher.

    For Gentiles, kosher is a health ideal, not a spiritual problem. When Daniel & his buddies didn't have access to kosher meat, they went vegetarian (not vegan). That is always an option. ;)

    Kosher meat is expensive. You can do it yourself.

    Since pork was never kosher to begin with, there was never a Biblical standard for reducing its blood levels.

    I was just thinking though, most of my meat is Halal. so do i still need to remove any blood? because i was jsut hinking doesnt Halal also remove blood like kosher? or have igot it wrong? i dont know much about Islam., i just live in a country where we have many muslims so 90% of meat in Britain is Halal

    what i dont understand is why i keepo hearing this thing inside me telling me i am putting myself under law by doing this???? i used to be under hebrew roots teachings so i know about that....but this is different. i am not keeping Torah, i intend to kep eating bacon pork sausage etc..... just removing blood like Bible says we gentiles (ok so i identify as gentile,. i am actually not fully gentile ethnicaly, but i wasnt brought up a a jew so my race doesnt count) ahould do if we can?

    Even kosher is not blood-free. It is just reduced to Biblically acceptable levels. (That is why I recommended kosher in the first place.)

    The bible says not to eat blood. Even says that in the New Testament.
    Wash meat and cook well

    It goes to motive.
    • If you believe it to be a spiritual requirement, then, yes, you are placing yourself back under the Law.
    • If you just believe that kosher is healthier (when available), like I do, you are not.
