Dietary Laws: Can a Christian Eat a BLT?

In Acts 10:9-16, the Apostle Peter saw a vision of a blanket coming down from Heaven covered with animals that had been declared unclean under Jewish Law (Leviticus 11:44-47; Deuteronomy 14:2-3). To his surprise, God instructed Peter to freely kill and eat of these animals (v.13)! When Peter objected that nothing unclean had ever entered his mouth (v. 14), God reassured him that “What God has cleansed, do not call common (v. 15).” Although the context of this passage deals primarily with the Gentiles coming into God’s Kingdom, it does clearly show us that God no longer classifies meats as “clean” and “unclean.” All of God’s creatures are good, and may be freely eaten as long as they are received with thanksgiving and prayer (1 Corinthians 8:1-13).
That being said, it is possible for something to be lawful, yet still not be what is best for us (1 Corinthians 6:12). Although it is no longer a sin to eat foods such as pork and shellfish, the physiology of these meats has not changed since Old Testament days. When consumed in excess, they still have potential to lead to a wide variety of health problems. If you do choose to eat them, be sure to use common sense and moderation.
