To eat or not to eat, what is the Scriptural standard?
What is the scriptural standard with regards to eating? How are we to understand these instructions and what is the physical and spiritual significance when we obey? Keeping these dietary instructions is commonly referred to as keeping kosher. The word “kosher” or “kasher” means proper, pure or acceptable. If we say we eat “kosher” we eat what is permissible in accordance with dietary instructions in Scripture.
