And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the
earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for
meat. Genesis 1:29
Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh.
But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's
meat.... Daniel 1:8
It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is
made weak. Romans 14:21
Only certain kinds of animals may be eaten.
Nevertheless, these shall ye not eat, of them that chew
the cud or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel and the
hare, and the coney; for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof;
therefore, they are unclean unto you. And the swine, because it
divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you; ye
shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcass. Deuteronomy 14:7-8
These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the
earth. Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts,
that shall ye eat. Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that
divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean
unto you. Leviticus 11:2-4
You may eat any kind of animal.
Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for
you. Genesis 9:3
And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not
perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it
cannot defile him; Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out
into the draught, purging all meats?
And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things
as are set before you. Luke 10:8
Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour: And he became very hungry, and
would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance, And saw heaven opened, and a
certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let
down to the earth: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and
creeping things, and fowls of the air. And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and
eat. Acts 10:9-13
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to
seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils ... commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with
thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
1 Timothy 4:1-3
