The Bible Diet FAQ

Q: I am a Christian, and I don’t think that the food I eat is important in my relationship with God. Can you tell me if I am wrong?

A: The way we eat is not a criterion of salvationnevertheless as small as this subject seems to be it, the food we eat is important in God’s sight. “The Bible Diet” book quotes Bible verses on how much God loves us so much and therefore He cares about our health and about what we eat, and the verses are easily explained in their context. In the world we live in today, we often get comfortable and we think that it is “ok” to do this or that, or to do eat this or that. But let’s remember that aside from drug, alcohol, or other known addictions, most people have “food” addictions. While some try no sugar diets or protein diets (and I was one of them), others don’t realize or underestimate the fact that their health is in danger. Unhealthy eating habits can make us gain or lose weight, and in the worse case, it can increase our chances to develop serious illness. The food we eat is also the fuel to our brain (try to drive a car with the wrong fuel…). Who never had a brain fog? It makes us have bad thoughts, make bad decisions, and have a poor communication with others but also with God. We can lower the risks of brain fog with healthier eating habits. As hard as it is to turn away from unhealthy food (and I personally know how difficult it is), it is very possible not only with willpower but also with God’s help. I truly encourage you to take a look at “The Bible Diet” book with a Bible at hand, and you will find out that obeying God is not a burden but in fact it brings so much joy.

Q: It seems like 1 Timothy chapter 4 tells us that Christians can eat everything they want, is it right?

A: I totally understand your point of view. I actually used to say the same things as you do, and I used to eat anything (really anything) until someone shares some Bible verses with me and that I study them for myself. I’ll share some info with you here, but I really encourage you to study the question for yourself.
First of all, the dietary laws are not only for the jews. The notion of clean and unclean animals existed before the Jewish nation existed (read: Genesis 7:2) The verses about marriage and abstaining from meats correspond to a Christian denomination, think about who it can be. I don’t judge anyone, as I said only God can judge. And I have family and friends from this denomination that I love with all my heart. But think about who tell some not to marry and not to eat *meat (the Greek word here is brōma which means “foods”) on certain occasions. But I’m not here to dwell on their identity. But if you put these words into context this group tells its followers that they should stop eating what is obviously clean foods (“which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”). Paul tells us that anything that passes this 2 tests is good for food: 1) it must be sanctified by the Bible 2) we should pray over it with thanksgiving. These are 2 requirements for the food to be acceptable in a Christian diet. Also, Peter’s vision proves that this law of unclean and clean animals was still valid in the new testament after Jesus was crucified. Peter himself said he won’t eat anything unclean when God told him to eat in his vision (Acts 10:14), and we know of course that it was a vision where God was telling Peter to preach to the Gentiles (symbolized by the unclean meat). And, let me share these verses with you: “For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, And with his chariots like a whirlwind, To render his anger with fury, And his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: And the slain of the Lord shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens. Behind one tree in the midst, EATING SWINE FLESH, AND THE ABOMINATION, AND THE MOUSE, Shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.” – Isaiah 66:15 Think also about all these scientific facts that prove how much unclean meat is unhealthy… I recommend you to watch this video about clean and unclean meat.
