Rebuttal to Answering Islam's Article "The Objection of Eating Pork"

Bassam Zawadi



The article can be located here http://www..org/Q-A-panel/pork.html

Basically the author tried to show that Mark 7:18-23 shows Jesus declaring all food clean. 

Here is the passage 

"Are you so dull?" he (Jesus) asked, "Don't you see that nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him unclean? For it doesn't go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out of his body." (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods "clean.") He went on: "What comes out of a man is what makes him 'unclean.' For from within, out of men's hearts come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance, and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man 'unclean'."
Mark 7:18-23


However, not everyone believed that this is what Jesus meant. Because the apostles still believed in the prohibition of certain food.

In the Book of Acts the Apostles wrote a letter to the gentiles to abstain from certain foods.

Acts 15:29

29You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell.


There are also Christians that don't believe that Mark 7 shows that Jesus declared all food clean. You should read them here.....

  • In the Hadiths, most of the meat of predatory and meat-eating animals from mammals and birds, animals with claws, and the pig are forbidden, except for what the Prophet allowed in the Hadiths, such as lizards and others.  But where does the Quran support all of this?
