Common Questions Regarding Health Laws In The Bible

Now that we have addressed in previous articles some basic principles in regards to health as given by the Bible, let’s go further by addressing the following.

For the believers (and those who may be close to becoming believers as the case may be) here are some answers to the common questions on health as they relate even to the bible.

1.      Does the Bible have anything to do with Health Today?

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 2.

ANSWER: Yes. Man’s mind, spiritual nature, and body are all connected. What affects one affects the other. If our bodies are misused, our minds and spiritual natures cannot become what God ordained they should.


2. Did God give rules pertaining to Great Health to His people, if so where and why?

“And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes … for our good always, that he might preserve us alive.” Deuteronomy 6:24.

“And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.” Exodus 23:25.

ANSWER: As has been pointed in this article, in the old testament, there are set biblical laws in Deuteronomy and Leviticus and several of them are linked directly to Great Health. God gave health rules because He knows what is best for the human body. In a similar way that manufacturers place an “operations manual” in each new product of theirs because they know what is best for their product, God, who made our bodies, also has an “operations manual.” It is called the Holy Bible. Ignoring God’s “operations manual” results in disease, twisted thinking, and burned-out lives, just as misusing a device leads to malfunctions.


3.   In regards to eating and drinking, do the “Health Rules” of God Apply?

“Eat ye that which is good.” Isaiah 55:2.

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31.

ANSWER: Certainly, if God says a thing is not fit to eat, He must have a good reason. He is not a harsh dictator, but a loving Father.

All His advice is for our good always as the Bible clearly states: “No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Psalms 84:11. So if God withholds a thing from us, it is because it is not good.


4.   So what was and could be the perfect diet in God’s eyes, what did God give people to eat when He created them and provided a perfect diet?

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed … and every tree … yielding seed.” “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat.” Genesis 1:29; 2:16.

ANSWER: The diet God gave people in the beginning was basically fruit.

INITIAL DIET….: (Genesis 1:29; Genesis 2: 9;

• 1. Every tree whose yield bears seed

Examples: apples, avocados, grapefruit, pecans, papaya, cherries, olives, walnuts

• 2. Every plant whose yield bears seed

Examples: tomatoes, watermelons, melons, grapes, cucumbers, eggplants, basically ‘plants’ that yield fruit.

Vegetables were added a bit later (Genesis 3:18).


5.   What items are specifically mentioned by God as being unclean and forbidden?

ANSWER: In Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14, God very clearly points out the following groups as being unclean. Read both chapters in full.

A. All animals which do not have a split hoof and chew the cud (Deuteronomy 14:6).

B. All fish and water creatures that do not have both fins and scales. Nearly all fish are clean (Deuteronomy 14:9).

C. All birds of prey, carrion eaters, and fish eaters (Leviticus 11:13-20).

D. Most “creeping things” (or invertebrates) are also unclean (Leviticus 11:21-47).

Note: These chapters make it clear that most animals, birds, and water creatures people ordinarily eat are clean. There are, however, some very notable exceptions. According to God’s rules, the following animals are unclean and are not to be eaten: hogs, (Pigs) squirrels, rabbits, catfish, eels, lobsters, clams, crabs, shrimp, oysters, frogs, and many others.


6.   Honestly, Will God be Angry With Me For Eating Pork?

“For, behold, the Lord will come with fire … and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves … eating SWINE’S FLESH, AND THE ABOMINATION, AND THE MOUSE, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 66:15-17.

ANSWER: You be the judge, you can read for yourself and see the truth. This may be shocking, however it is true and must be told. The Bible positively states that all who eat “swine’s flesh,” the “mouse,” and other unclean things that are an “abomination” will be destroyed with fire at the coming of the Lord.

When God says to leave something alone and not eat it, we should by all means obey Him. Brothers and Sisters, let’s remember a stern warning from God who says men will be destroyed because they chose that in which I delighted not.” Isaiah 66:4.


7.   Come on, didn’t this law of clean and unclean animals originate at Sinai? Wasn’t it for the Jews only, and didn’t it end at the cross?

“And the Lord said unto Noah, of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens … and of beasts that are not clean by two.” Genesis 7: 1, 2.

ANSWER: If you look at the verse above, it is clear that the Bible has ample evidence that there were clean and unclean animals at least around the time of Noah. If you refer to the story of Noah, being as though he lived long before any Jews existed, he knew of the clean and unclean, because he took into the ark the clean animals by “sevens” and the unclean by “twos.”

Moreover, Revelation 18:2 in the New Testament refers to some birds as being unclean just before the second coming of Christ.

The death of Christ had no altering effect whatsoever on these health laws, since the Bible says that all who break them will be destroyed when Jesus returns (Isaiah 66:15-17).  As stated elsewhere in this book, in the words of Christ himself: “”Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the Law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose” (Matt 5: 17)

It is safe to say that in our modern times, most Christians consume “unclean” meats not out of rebellion, but because of a belief that the New Testament allows them to do so. I know that’s what my mother says all the time. However, that is not the case. It’s worth asking, if God really has eliminated his Old Testament dietary laws, is there any physical evidence to support that conclusion? It’s safe to say there is no such evidence as people still fall sick from consuming the animals rendered unclean up to this day. So, there it is, Jesus’ statement that his coming will abolish, change or eliminate “nothing” from the Old Testament laws of God ought to make all modern Christians stop assuming Jesus made any major changes in the observance of the dietary laws.

A read through of Leviticus chapters 18-20 deals with sexual activity. Much (if not all) of what is listed there are practices that most Christians will readily frown upon and accept as the Law of God.

However, it is noteworthy that these Laws against Sexual Immorality are in the same location of the Bible that prohibits the consumption of pork and other unclean animals. Now, it’s safe to say all well-meaning Christians know better than to say that such laws about sex have been ‘nailed to the cross’ or no longer apply to us as we ‘live under grace.’ Well, then the argument or belief that the laws about unclean meats being abolished should be seen as invalid as well, since they are in the same book of the Bible. Let’s not deceive ourselves on this!

Why take out some laws and accept them as applicable to modern-day Christians, then render the rest as no longer relevant, especially when the consequences on disobeying them affects our health and the health of our offspring.

That being stated, none of God’s laws have been abolished by Jesus coming the first time (…I have not come to abolish the laws). The Ten Commandments (which we all try to obey anyway) and the other commandments given afterwards in the first 5 books of the bible are eternal laws that have always existed and will continue to be the standard for eternity.

The METHOD TO ATONE FOR BREAKING THE LAWS being the killing and sacrifice of innocent animals is what’s done away NOT THE LAWS THEMSELVES.

Therefore, those laws have not changed and are still (and will be) used.

Be prosperous and be in good health.
