There is one scripture about meats that is commonly misunderstood. I Timothy 4:4-5 says, “For every creature is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”

At this point in time, common sense will dictate that this verse cannot and will not authorize eating skunks, leeches, maggots, tapeworms and every other imaginable animal, insect or parasite. If this were the literal meaning of the verse, it would mean that people are also good to eat.

Every creature of God is good—“very good”—according to Genesis 1:31. That includes every kind of vermin, parasite and poisonous creature that exists. However the Creator Himself calls some of His creatures abominable and detestable, when USED AS FOOD FOR HUMANS. To understand this verse, we must read the previous verses more carefully. Context is the key to correct understanding.

In verse 3 of the same chapter, Paul explains, those “which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.” Note the two key phrases “which God created to be received” and “by those who believe and know the truth.”

What is “the truth”? John wrote, “Your Word is truth” (John 17:17). People who know what their Bible teaches, will know the truth about what kinds of animals God says that He has “created to be received”—as distinct from what He has not created to be received! In other words, they will know what the Word of God sanctifies (this word means sets apart, distinguishes by separation) as good for food (I Tim. 4:5)—and what it does not sanctify.

Well, I hope this article has been able to shed some light on the whole debate about 1Timothy 4:4-5 and what it really says about meat consumption.
