Can Christians Eat Pork?


Eating pork is not forbidden in the bible. Pork, just like other food, are from animals that are created by God for us. We can eat all food, as long as we pray for the blood of Jesus to cover it and offer thanksgiving for them. Christian are forbidden to eat blood or any dishes made from blood. Christians also cannot eat food used to worship idols and food that came from strangled animals.

Christians should not eat or drink anything that cause another weak Christian to stumble. For example, you should not drink alcohol in front of a Christian who just recover from alcoholism. Drinking alcohol becomes sin when you drink until you get drunk.

But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood. (Acts 15:20 KJV)

Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh. (Deuteronomy 12:23 KJV)

But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. (Genesis 9:4 KJV)

For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off. (Leviticus 17:14 KJV)

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth. Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake: For the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof. If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof: Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man’s conscience? For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved. (1 Corinthians 10:23-33 KJV)
