Acts 10


9 On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:

10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,

11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.

15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.

Do you agree this means we're now free to eat what we like?

1 Corinthians 10:23-33 talks about this too a key verse is 23 all things are lawful but all things are not expedient. Paul says we have the freedom but if our freedom creates a stumbling block for someone else we should avoid it not as a matter of law but of caring about others. Can't speak for where you are but here there are still groups which make a ceremonial devotion of certain eating. We know that those spirits they claim to be devoted to are not real gods but by our hanging out and partaking we are in effect saying that sort of practice is OK and that can help snare someone else into that belief and practice.

There are also some things that it would be tempting God to eat, known poisons For example or things we know cause us an allergic reaction and some things you just don't want to eat like a human or a pet.

Jesus fulfilled the Law perfectly, and n ailed the ordinances to His Cross, including the Ten Commandments. We are now under Grace.

Hebrews 8:
13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Galatians 3:
23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Col. 2:
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

Debbie Howard put of this way " the commandments are now precious promises" Thou shalt not covet is now you will not covet because your needs are met in Christ. You shall not murder because Christ love in you is greater than hate or revenge, and so on. I heard that first more than 40 years ago and it has stuck with me. Our nature is transformed into His nature. It is still a work on progress but it is very real
