There are many things not specified as forbidden for Christians but something is not permitted to be eaten.
For example, Leviticus 7:23 states eating fats of animals such as cattle and sheep is forbidden. Though this is Old Testament, it is still necessary for us to obey it.
Here are some of the foods you as a Christian should avoid:
- Bats: In Leviticus 11, there is a list of birds that should not be eaten by the Israelites. And the bat is one of the birds. Aside from the Bible, bats are not good to be eaten due to the health implications. Bats are vectors, that is animals that can carry disease.
2. Insects: The book of Leviticus stated some insects that should be eaten but not every insect. Many insects and arachnids contain a lot of poison that is dangerous to human health. They are an excellent carrier of a disease.
3. Vulture: just like bats, no Christian should ever think of eating vulture. Vultures are always associated with death and most times very painful and ugly. The survival of vulture is dependent on eating rotten meat, this leaves them with so much bacteria that can affect the human body when they eat vulture. Because vultures are largely immune to bacteria, nothing eats a dead vulture even their fellow vulture.
Blood: There are several directives in the Bible that blood should not be eaten as it is forbidden. For health reasons, blood should be forbidden as it is a career of bacteria and viruses.
Fishes without fin or scales: Some Christians avoid eating this food but some still eat it and it is wrong biblically and unhealthy to our health.
