    I love the way you worded this title. It sounds like bacon is necessary for salvation. ^_^

    Just as necessary as the Sabbath and less damaging in regard to salvation as a requirement.

    Acts 10:15 and Matt 15:11 does not teach or say that the food laws mattered not. Not if your really honest with the text. No more than Ex 8:19/31:18 and Deut 9:10 states God the Father has a body with fingers. Just sayin'....if you want to pick on lawkeepers, you should use something that really stands against them, like not loving the unlovable. Sorry to burn your strawman LLOJ, but it is what it is. It's not the food laws that matter, but that which flows from the heart. THIS is the point of the text, if your honest.

    Whatever you say bro.

    Let's get back on the topic of pork. What is your view on Christians eating it? Are we breaking any of God's commands or ordinances by consuming it?
    [This is about for health reasons btw]

    I see Christians eating it all the time. :thumbsup: :p Were you ever commanded to not consume it?

    My point is if you were never commaned not to, then proving where your released from that command is no point at all. Hence my mention of burning straws. Ever suck through a burning straw? (dares you to find a picture of that... :D )

    I feel like I do that every time I come on GT :p ^_^

    So do you not eat pork because of Judaism?

    Is that Will Ferrell? Yikes! The Lion of Dudah!!

    Yes, I don't eat pork, shellfish, and maintain a biblical kosher diet, as opposed to a rabbinically kosher one. Because I was raised Jewish, yes. But not because I believe the covenant made with my fathers at Sinai is still binding upon me. I do this because I was raised this way, and my observance has nothing to do with following Torah commands, but because it's been the custom of my family. It's the way I was raised, and that has nothing to do with my righteousness in the sight of the Father. Because I do not connect observance to the Sinai covenant with being found righteous in God's sight. I connect observance to the covenant made through Yeshua on Mt. Zion as how one is made righteous in God's sight. As such, arguing over Torah commands like the pharisees' did is a mute point to me. Those who were supposed to know the law in and out had not a clue about the righteousness and glory of God that walked among them and filled their hearts. Same today it seems, nothing new under the sun. I am free from the law of sin and death, and alive to the law of Messiah. Enough said? I think not...... ;)

    If you accept circumcision, Messiah will profit you nothing.... This does not mean that being Jewish is being severed from Messiah. It means if you 'accept' that you 'must' be circumcised to be accepted by God you have missed the message of Messiah, and it will be of no advantage, both the message of Messiah AND your cirumcisional attempt to follow the law and be accepted by God for such.

    Because in Messiah being a Jew or being of the nations means nothing. Faith working through love is the only thing that has meaning to God now. Faith in Messiah's words, which taught us to love all. We are known by our love for one another. Not by our observance to Torah commands.

    I'm considering boycotting Hebrew National hot dogs because I think I've uncovered evidence of a Zionist plot. They sell SEVEN dogs to a package, but all the buns are sold in packages of EIGHT! They're trying to ruin our way of life!
