You have to have heard this before! This can’t be new to you. But here goes. My contention is as follows:
** Genesis 9:4**
Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.
** Leviticus 19:26**
You shall not eat anything with the blood.
** Leviticus 17:14**
For as for the life of all flesh, its blood is identified with it’s life. Therefore I said to the sons of Israel, “you are not to eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood; whoever eats it shall be cut off.”
** Deureronomy 12:23**
Only be sure to not eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh.
** Acts 15:29**
That you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled …
Ok, I’m not satisfied (with all due respect) with Mr. Mark Shea’s short answer to this. He basically says in “This Is My Body” that in Mark 17:19, Christ rendered all food clean, removing all Old Testament dietary restrictions (p. 25,26).
So, does that mean that cannabilism is now ok? Or, can we now drink the blood of young bulls and goats? That’s not what Acts 15:29 says.
So, what do you say? I’m willing and open to hear what you have to say. Bring it!
