“Eating Meat with Blood Still in it”: What is it?


What is the relationship between biblical verses on “homosexuality” and “sexual perversion” and biblical “eating meat with  blood still in it” verses? Is there any relationship between them?

Guitar_Mactan_Cebu_storeBefore discussing fully the issue, let us believe in good faith that the translation of the “Word” from its ancient language to the present version is correct and that the translation takes into full consideration the sequence on how the “words” were spoken, specifically on the above cited verses. Having done so, then let us proceed.

The subject verses are as follows:

1God blessed Noah and his sons and said: “Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth. 2All the animals, birds and fish will live in fear  of you. They are all placed under your power. 3Now you can eat them, as well as green plants; I give them all to you for food. 4The one thing you must not eat is meat with blood still in it. I forbid this because the life is in the blood. 5If anyone takes human life, he will be punished. I will punish with death any animal that takes a human life. 6Human beings were made like God, so whoever murders one of them will be killed by someone else.7You must have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth.” (Genesis 9:1-7,TEV)

Studying the verses, the following elements are noted:

  • Generalstatement- Taking a human life is punishable. (Verses 5 and 6).
    • Specific statements as regards taking a human life:
      • If the one taking a human life is an animal, God will punish the animal with death. (Verse 5)
      • If the one  taking is a human being, then God permitted other human being to kill him. (Verse 6)
    • There is distinction on the procedure of punishment between human beings and animals. (Verse 5 and 6)
  • Human beings are superior to animals.(Verse 2)
    • Human beings are permitted to eat animals. (Verse 3)
    • There is no prohibition whatsoever on killing of animals. (Verses 1-7)
  • The statements were  spoken to human beings not to animals. (Verse 1)
  • There is no specification what “meat with blood still in it” is prohibited to be eaten-either the meat of a human being or animal,  (Verse 4)
  • The verses are opened and closed with “procreation” statements. (Verse 1 and Verse 7)

The critical questions: Are the verses consistently referring only to human life? Specifically, is the term “life” stated in verse 4 refers only to human life? What is the significance of knowing the operational definition of “life” in verse 4? This is an introductory discussion on “eating meat with blood still in it“.
