PETER IN A DREAM (TRANCE, VISION)" SEEN ALL TYPES OF UNCLEAN FLESH AND GOD TOLD HIM TO EAT...PETER REFUSED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS...OF COURSE, HE WAS HEBREW THIS WAS TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT, BECAUSE THE DREAM WAS IN REFERENCE TO GENTILES AND JEWS BELIEVING THAT GENTILES ARE UNCLEAN...IT HAD "NOTHING" TO DO WITH THE UNCLEAN FLESH / MEATS, SUCH AS, PIG TO EAT.
Acts 10. Peter ... fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 It contained all kinds of four–footed animals, as well as reptiles of the earth and birds of the air. 13 Then a voice told him, "Get up, Peter. Kill and eat." 14 "Surely not, Lord!" Peter replied. "I have never eaten anything impure or unclean." 15 The voice spoke to him a second time, "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean." 16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven
(NOTE: IT DOESN'T SAY PETER ATE ANYTHING UNCLEAN THAT EVEN THE LORD...IN HIS DREAM, MADE CLEAN...LOL). ...(NOW PETER REALIZED WHAT HIS DREAM MEANT)...Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. 28 He said to them: "You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with a Gentile or visit him. But God has shown me that I should not call any man (NOTE: NOT MEAT) impure or unclean.
HOWEVER, TO JUSTIFY THEIR CONSUMPTION OF THE UNCLEAN FLESH THEY GIVE THIS BIBLE VERSE...Mark 7:15-20.There is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.” And when he had entered the house and left the people, his disciples asked him about the parable. And he said to them, “Then are you also without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile him, since it enters not his heart but his stomach, and is expelled?”
THIS IS A PARABLE...IN FACT, EVEN THE DISCIPLES UNDERSTOOD IT TO BE A PARABLE..."his disciples asked him about the parable." PARABLE noun 1. a short allegorical story designed to illustrate or teach some truth, religious principle, or moral lesson. 2. a statement or comment that conveys a meaning indirectly by the use of comparison, analogy, or the like.
NOTE: IT IS AN ALLEGORY, MEANING IT IS NOT REAL, (SO JESUS DID NOT TELL HIS DISCIPLES TO EAT PORK... WHY WOULD HE AS A HEBREW?) BUT IS USED IN A STORY FORM TO ILLUSTRATE A PRINCIPLE OF TRUTH. THEREFORE, EVEN THIS VERSE DOES NOT TELL CHRISTIANS TO EAT PORK. HOWEVER, WHEN YOU ASK THEM ABOUT LEGION, WHO HAD 666 UNCLEAN SPIRITS IN HIM AND JESUS CASTING ALL 666 UNCLEAN SPIRITS INTO A HERD OF PIGS... THEY HAVE NO ANSWER
Mark 5:13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
ASK THEM IF WE ARE SUPPOSED TO EAT THE SWINE (PIG) & TELL THEN WHY WOULD THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, SOME CHRISTIANS STATE "GOD," CAST UNCLEAN SPIRITS IN CLEAN FLESH AND KILL THE SO-CALLED NOW CLEAN FLESH (BY DROWNING THEM IN THE SEA), WHEN "GOD" KNOWS VERY WELL SPIRITS CAN'T DIE? OBVIOUSLY, THE SWINE (PIG) ISN'T CLEAN, THEREFORE, THE SWINE (PIG) WAS AND IS STILL SEEN AS "UNCLEAN," OTHERWISE, JESUS WOULDN'T HAVE CAST THE UNCLEAN SPIRITS INTO THE HERD OF SWINE (PIGS). DUH!!! OF COURSE, THE STORY IS ALLEGORICAL, HOWEVER, THE MEANING IS THE SAME
Leviticus 11:7-8. And the pig, because it parts the hoof and is cloven-footed but does not chew the cud, is unclean to you. You shall not eat any of their flesh, and you shall not touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you. HOLLA!!!
