Dietary laws

This can not be done from a rules persective. That is forgetting the spirit of the law. Love towards God and Neighbour is the whole of the law, the intent, selflessness. So when you keep the dietary laws, eating no unclean meats like certain sea creatures, turkey or pig, do it for God, as a sacrifice, or do it for a brother or sister in Christ that is weak/strict and you want to stay in touch with them or when you see that person as a strong example. To take unhealthy things away from you lifestyle makes you clearminded, strong and energetic: in a way disciplined so that you can target the addictions and big sins or imperfections or attitudes that you need to work on.

Cutting out unclean meats has the same effect as stopping smoking, alcohol, poker, masturbation, porn, psych medication, tattoos, piercings and vaccines. You can not enter heaven without having cut off those pleasures of the flesh, all bad habits are in the same category. Crucifixion of the flesh/old you, is true circumcision of the heart rather than outward practises. If the inward changes for the better, it will show outwardly. If the outward habits change, it will have effect inwardly.

2 Corinthians 6:17

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”

Revelation 21:8

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

Galatians 5:24

“And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.”

John 14:15

If ye love me, keep my commandments.
