If somthing is harming our body then is it a sin to keep doing it?If you are wear of it?Now I ask these question because I was wondering about what we eat in America. Are we not in great sin everyday. And choice to somthing about because we enjoy it or it is easy?After reading meaning things about the foods we eat daily it hurting our body. This why so many people are getting sick. We can link alot to the fact of how we eat.So then in the Old T God speak alot about food. Why would God wisdom then not apply to today?In His Lovecharlene
Why would God wisdom then not apply to today?It does sister :-)
then why do we still eat pork?when God said they shouldn't.Now I understand that in NT say to eat unclean and clean. But still God must known that pork was bad. I no it is not lawful, but when looking to it. It shows that pork in very bad for us. So then God knew that was bad. So this can still apply todayin his lovecahrlene
The entire purpose of what Paul was saying in Romans 14 (on a matter like this) was that the 'stronger' one spiritually saw that it was fine (not sinful) to eat anything but to the 'weaker' brother, to 'him' (weaker brother) it was sinful *(I.e. their conviction 14:5)*.Cahrlene, if to you, you feel convicted to 'not eat pork' feel free. Just remember, those that eat pork are NOT any better or worse than you in the Spirit, pertaining to righteousness. (Probably health but not pertaining to how God views them. Rom. 14)Paul said it well in 1 Cor. 6:12All things [b]are[/b] [u]lawful[/u] for me, but [b]not all[/b] things are [u]profitable.[/u] All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.Yet, never forget Romans 13:8Owe nothing to anyone except [b]to love one another[/b]; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. Be blessed in your walk with Christ.
then why do we still eat pork?

do I feel convicted when I eat pork yes. Not because I feel I am under the law but that it harmful to my body. although pork is profitable It is not lawful.it isn't the best thing. Just like Tv, and other things that are not lawful but are a sin in how they waste our time, if we are to doing other things. So I think pork could be a sin. If knowing it is harmful to our body. Even candy or other foods that are hurting our temple of the Lordsin his lovecahrlene
