Filipino language has an equivalence for forbidden meat. But like sodomy, the term is being understood as not connected to the prohibition “eating meat with blood still in it” but may be deeply noted to be just the same, as it is still a type of sexual perversion.
Thus, if you happen to talk to a man, who would boast his sexual prowess done to a woman or the unusual effort of the woman, the discussion would always be taken not in a biblical perspective but on a sexual sense.
The violation of prohibition, which maybe sexually “eating” by a man or by the woman of the other’s genitalia, is not being consciously considered. Instead, the discussion would usually end up in “laughter”, “enjoyable and light conversion“, “bragging”, etc.
Tradition and hesitance on the part of preachers to confront the issue resulted in the contamination of the meaning of the prohibition, especially, at present,when pornography is rampant. Worst, some priests are helping in the promotion of the prohibited act. (more…)
Before proceeding to the articles on application of the rules on human procreation stated in9:1-7, we will review first and try to have a concluding sub-topic on forbidden meat, otherwise known as “Eating Meat with Blood Still in it“.
In the first topic, “What is it” readers were introduced to five major and five minor elements of Genesis 9:1-7 verses 1-7, to wit;
1. General statement- Taking a human life is punishable. (Verses 5 and 6).
- 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)
2. Human beings are superior to animals.(Verse 2)
- Human beings are permitted to (more…)
What is the scriptural difference between human and animal meat? And what is its significance to the discussion on prohibited or forbidden meat?
We have previously discussed the following topics concerning the verse, to wit: 1) What is it? 2) the Logic of the Words, and 3) the Circumstances when Words were Spoken, with the subject verse stating as follows:
4The one thing you must not eat is meat with blood still in it; I forbid this because the life is in the blood. (Genesis 9:4, TEV)
The previous discussions logically point to a human meat as the one beingto be eaten, if with blood still in it.
The verb “eat” and it’s counterpart
Now, let us try to dissect the verb “eat” that is being used in the verse. Eating is a function of the (more…). Aside from , there are other functions
To fully comprehend the intent of the prohibition, is it necessary to correlate the spoken words to the circumstances when they were spoken. But before discussing more deeply on the topic, it would be helpful to know the surrounding circumstances when the words were spoken.
In brief, these words were spoken to Noah and his sons after the flood.
4The one thing you must not eat is meat with blood still in it; I forbid this because the life is in the blood.(Genesis 9:4, TEV)
Although The Word does not specifically mention the traumatic effects of flood on the family of Noah, their fear may be seen and acknowledgement of the power of God was exhibited by Noah’s acts of offering sacrifices to God.
13 When Noah was 601 years old, on the first day of the first month, the water was gone. Noah removed the covering of the boat, looked around, and saw that the ground was getting dry. 14 By the (more…)
What is the logic of forbidden meat verse in Genesis 9:4? More specifically, the subject words are accompanied by the following verses; “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“. (Genesis 9:2-5, TEV).
Previously, the main issue that was posed is: “Whether not not the word “life” stated in verse 4 refers only to “human” life, to the exclusion of “animal” life”.
If your answer is NO, that is- both human and animal life are deemed included in the word “life” in verse 4, then it is necessary to review the accompanying verses in order to be sure on the thoughts of the One who spoke, whether or not, it is really so.
Immediately after verse 4, verse 5 states as follows:
5If anyone takes human life, he will be punished. I will punish with death any animal that takes a human life. (Genesis 9:5, TEV).
Why is it necessary to review the accompanying verses of the subject word “life”, in the first place? (more…)
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?
Before 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 (more…)
