….(especially With the blood still oozing out)

I remember this girl telling me once how she absolutely couldn’t be a vegetarian, stating that she loved meat and she loved eating it with the blood when it’s rare or medium rare.

The first thought that popped in my head was to inform her of what God says about eating blood and unclean meats by the way, however, I knew she probably would just shrug me off anyway.

However, for those who may be reading this book, I seek to use this medium to enlighten you on the subject of eating rare or medium rare meat.

Take a look at the following verses first.

Only be sure that you do not eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh. Deuteronomy 12:23

But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. Genesis 9:4

It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, in all your dwelling places, that you eat neither fat nor blood.” Leviticus 3:17

But should write to them to abstain from the things polluted by idols, and from sexual immorality, and from what has been strangled, and from blood. Acts 15:20

For the life of every creature is its blood: its blood is its life. Therefore I have said to the people of Israel, You shall not eat the blood of any creature, for the life of every creature is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off. Leviticus 17:14

Do you notice what they have in common?

It is that the Bible (both in the Old and the New Testament) is clearly against eating blood. Does this seem like yet another burdensome or boring rule of God? Well, let’s see if that is the case on a scientific basis since at times, seeing (or proving) is believing.

Folks, as Harold Hemingway explains in his booklet, “Are the Food Laws Scientific?” one of the functions of blood is to transport bodily wastes and poisons to excretory ducts in the body. This is perhaps the main reason why God says we should not eat blood. Other reasons are

-Because waste products are in an animal’s blood. Uric acid in blood becomes urine. The taste of meat is heightened in proportion to the amount of blood and the tang that uric acid gives it.

-Infectious diseases can be transmitted to man by means of ingesting blood of diseased animals. Thus, we ought to avoid eating an animal that dies “of itself,” Leviticus 17:15, because its blood hasn’t been drained out, verse 13, or, it may have died of disease. Likewise, we should not eat animals “torn with beasts,” verse 15, because their throats have not been cut to allow the blood to drain.

Therefore, it should be noted that stunning an animal with an electric shock before slaughter prevents the blood from draining. So keep that in mind when purchasing your CLEAN meats-if you must anyway.

John S. Fox, in his book, Today, Tomorrow and the Great Beyond, pages 353-354, says:

“The harmful presence of blood in killed meat has of recent years been realized fully by modern scientists. It has been found that in meat insufficiently bled, putrefaction sets in rapidly, even though frozen; whereas meat which has been adequately bled will keep for long periods….Science also shows that blood congeals in the flesh to such an extent after death that no amount of boiling can properly remove it.”

So keep all of this in mind, as Acts 15:20 reminds us, abstaining from blood is indeed a permanent statute of the Almighty.

Don’t be like Germans who eat “blood pudding,” made from pig’s blood and suet (fat). There may even be a spiritual danger from drinking blood, as this may open up one to demonic forces.

The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics, volume 2, page 716, mentions that “when the fresh blood of the victim is drunk….The result is frequently seen in usual phenomena of possession.”

Well, needless to say, you should be enlightened now on why God says to avoid blood in your CLEAN meats.
