Unclean Christianity vs. Peter's Vision

Unclean traditional Christianity teaches the religious lie that Jesus "did away with" the dietary laws, sinning against both God and man (1 John 2:4; Matt 5:17-20). Don't you believe them! Reject such sloppy swill!

Acts 10:28
Then he said to them, "You know how unlawful it is for a Jewish man to keep company with or go to one of another nation. But God has shown me that I should not call any MAN common or unclean."

God's clean and unclean food laws (Lev. 11 & Deut. 14) are consistent from Genesis to Revelation.

Acts 11 rehearses how God gave Peter a vision THREE TIMES of unclean animals and told him to kill them and eat. Peter said he never ate such food (even years after the resurrection of Yeshua, knowing better) and God told him not to call what He had cleansed common or unclean. THREE MEN were waiting for him to go with them to the spiritually unclean Gentile Cornelius' home where after a sermon, Peter said they were spiritually unclean as far as Jews were concerned, God poured out the Holy Spirit upon them.

Peter - to whom the vision was given - interpreted the vision and said that God had shown him - a new revelation - that he should not call any MAN common or unclean but that God had now accepted the Gentiles who had repented to become part of the household of faith. The same Gentiles that later the Jerusalem Council of Acts 15 instructed about the dietary laws, symbolized by the prohibition against eating blood (as today they're summarized by folks knowing we shouldn't eat pork).

The whole issue of Peter's vision was about SALVATION BEING OPENED TO THE GENTILES (no longer just a rare exception) - not about how we can now pig out on whatever we want! That's the plain truth of the Word of God that I was shocked to learn years ago when my minister patiently went through all this, and other Scriptures, with me.

Acts 10:28
Then he said to them, "You know how unlawful it is for a Jewish man to keep company with or go to one of another nation. But God has shown me that I should not call any MAN common or unclean."
