You hear these people running around saying homosexuality is a sin.
It is. But Jesus still loves you.
I believe eating shrimp/shellfish, pork, and many of those other dietary laws came from a certain time and place where health and environmental concerns were important. There are 613 commandments in the Old Testament.
They did. Even then,m the church I am ordained in still speaks against eating them (I am no longer LDS). Except for shrimp, because shrimp DO INDEED have fins and scales. Pork, I stay a long ways from. It's a health issue clearly. My family has a history of heart problems. And they love pork. My mother, sister, and grandfather have had their arteries sonically cleaned. All three have had strokes. My mom and grandpa also had heart attacks. My sister had her arteries cleaned back in 2001. She was 33.
I am 39, I keep pork out of my diet, and to this day I have NEVER had any heart problems.
