    @ ray: So, you really are a vegan?

    If so, why?

    Stopped dairy in eighties after diagnosed with severe allergies. Headaches.

    Bye Bye eclairs! :O)

    The meat was gradual over the next couple decades, for various reasons, some physical and some spiritual. Like celibacy, at least an attempt at separation between flesh-world and Foreverville. Also, I loathe ‘processing’ of animals for consumption. Yes we have dominion but I like the critters and don’t appreciate them being economic units.

    In restaurants sometimes lefties will show solidarity with me for my Special Special Vegan-ness. One strange woman high fived me the other week. Man I hate the whole Team Agenda aspect of these people. I can’t even order my food w/o it being political. I felt like gobbling a huge raspberry Danish in front of her. Next time there I will ask for ‘extra gluten on that’ with whatever I order. Then stare at everybody.

    I’m not totalitarian about it tho, e.g. there’s a little fish sauce in a thai dish i like, and I am not giving it up.

    Meat eating is permitted Scripturally so there we have it. If Jesus really didn’t want it in broad practice, he’d have said something about so fundamental and prosaic an issue. But he didn’t so the OT stands.

      I agree that it’s an issue where we have freedom of choice; after all:

      I have no issue with people who can’t stomach / don’t like meat; I get that. Ditto those who can’t stand the taste of alcohol / those who feel queasy after the slightest bit, no need to drink, either. Same with dairy, gluten, etc.

      It truly is unfortunate that everything has become political, that people can’t make individual choices without people trying to force them onto a team.

    That said, because I hate modern-day prog dogma, I tend to be a fierce carnivore; thus:

    Apparently in part of the first-century Church, both vegetarians and carnivores assumed positions of superiority over one another, puffing chests. Romans 14 is titled ‘Do Not Judge Your Brother’ which, I’m guessing, might include rescinding his manhood for failure to eat meat. Like Borg Elft derides carnivores or omnivores as cruel.

    Verse 3 rebukes both ‘sides’ and verse 4 gets to the, well meat of it — ‘Who are you to judge someone else’s servant’? Paul says to both sides, knock it off, if Christ wants to condemn someone for food choice that’s his business. Don’t divide the Church needlessly. Paul spends an entire chapter on the issue, meaning, it’s goona be a looooong prollem.

    In Luke 10, Christ himself instructs his chosen travelers to ‘eat whatever is set before you’ when entering a welcoming town. As gesture of good faith and humility. Paul seems to re-enforce this generally in Romans, concerning faith, but warns against presumption and fragmentation.

    Not what goes in but what comes out.

    Indeed. Things ‘adiaphora’ (indifferent) ought not to be matters of contention between believers.

    And yes, ‘out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks’ and ‘the heart is deceitful above all things’.

    Food for thought – which is food available to all. 🙂
