In relation to my previous question, What is the significance of Acts 10:13, 11:7 "make sacrificial slaughter".
o δε πετρος ειπεν μηδαμως κυριε οτι ουδεποτε εφαγον παν κοινον η ακαθαρτον
and yet Peter said not-at-all lord that have yet I eaten any/(every?) common or unclean.
If the blood in animal meat is considered unclean and common, would these passages invalidate Genesis 9:4,5 ?
How do Acts 10, 11 invalidate
אך בשר בנפשו דמו לא תאכלו
but meat with its life its blood not shall you eat
Do "unclean and common" equate to "life its blood" ? How ?
- ואך את דמכם לנפשתיכם אדרש
מיד כל חיה אדרשנו
but yet of your blood of your lives I will inquire
consequence/from-hand of all living shall I inquire of him
Does this mean that Christianity affirming the prohibition against knowingly "eating food offered to idols" is also no longer valid?
I am not quoting the Deuteronomy passages because, clearly the passages in Acts intend to invalidate Deuteronomy. But question remains, how do you allow yourself to have a beef steak barbecue with blood oozing from the meat, without violating Christian biblical principles?
I know there are verses in Galations et al, that say, not to let anyone judge you by what you eat - but saying "Do not let anyone judge you by your reckless life" does not encourage you to live a reckless life.
