God’s Dietary Laws: Why Pigs, Crabs and Lobsters Are Bad for You

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

God’s dietary laws prohibit eating carnivorous animals. Just as God created clean animals for food and by-products that humans could use, he created unclean animals for other reasons. Carnivores are prey animals that help to control the populations of other animals.

Such is the case with mountain lion and wolves who keep deer populations in check. This helps keep the deer population down and weeds out the old and sick members of the herd naturally. This is just one good reason why we should not eat carnivores — sick animals could transmit disease.

Leviticus 11:7-8 and Deuteronomy 14:8 mention specifically that pigs are unclean and not fit for human consumption. Domesticated pigs have been used for a very long time as scavengers and will eat anything from garbage to dead animals and human wastes. Today, pigs in America consume more than 20 percent of the corn harvested in our country. Feeding corn, wheat and barley to pigs puts them in direct competition with our food crops. This is probably one good reason why God declared them unfit to eat. Jesus even allowed a herd of pigs to run off the edge of the cliff after He cast demons into them. This showed how little regard he had for them – or just how invaluable he found them to be.

Pigs, along with other unclean animals, can also transmit trichinosis to humans. This is caused by a small roundworm that finds its way into animal and human muscle. Bear meat, walrus and pig have all been a major player in transmitting infections to humans.


In Leviticus, the laws concerning aquatic creatures are addressed:

These you may eat of all that are in the water: whatever in the water has fins and scales, whether in the seas or in the rivers—that you may eat…. Whatever in the water does not have fins or scales—that shall be an abomination to you. Leviticus 11:9, 12

Science reveals what may have been God’s reasons for declaring certain sea creatures unfit for human consumption. Clean fish are those that swim in bodies of water while unclean sea life is comprised mostly of predatory scavengers or bottom dwellers. The fish and sea life that do the ocean cleaning are full of toxins and can be harmful to human health. Poisonous fish are generally covered in bristles, spiny scales, thorns or spines and do not have any true scales.

Even though the Biblical dietary laws would have us eat the safest of fish we must still be very careful. Many of these fish are now polluted with heavy metals, as the health and balance of ocean ecosystems becomes disrupted — mostly due to overfishing, toxic chemical spills and pollution.

What about shellfish, crabs and lobster?

Shellfish such as crab and lobster do not have fins or scales and are therefore prohibited for human consumption under biblical dietary laws. However, shellfish is a multi-billion dollar business and eating such aquatic life considered a delicacy in most parts of the world. We know that everything God created has a purpose; so what is the purpose of shellfish, then?

Lobsters are nocturnal bottom walkers and scavengers that scavenge for dead animals and debris on the ocean floor – they are like the vultures of the oceans. Lobsters have even been seen burying dead fish and digging them up a little at a time to eat. Crabs will eat just about anything and are known as professional garbage hunters.

The Encyclopedia of Aquatic Life tells us that crabs, common shrimp and lobsters all feed off of dead and decaying matter. Therein lies their occupation — they were created to be the cleanup crew for the bottoms of lakes, rivers and oceans. They were not intended to be eaten by human beings. Eating raw or undercooked crabs, crayfish, shrimp or snails puts anyone at risk of a severe parasitic infection.

Filter feeders

Closer observation of oysters, mussels, scallops and clams shows us that God also had a very significant purpose for these creatures. They are found in streams, coastal areas and lakes and are considered filter-feeders. They are stationary — meaning they do not go hunting for their food but rather pump large amounts of water over their gills, trapping small pieces of silt, bacteria, viruses and plant debris for their dinner. The International Wildlife Encyclopedia tells us that mussels and other filter-feeders are the ultimate scavengers of the sea. They are the detail cleaners, so to speak. Their role is to purify the water.

Now, you have to ask yourself, once you really understand the role that these creatures play in their natural habitat, do you still want to eat them? Eating scavengers and filter-feeders is kind of like eating whatever is in your vacuum cleaner bag or septic tank. When scavenger and filter feeders make meals out of dead, decaying material along with pathogenic viruses, heavy metals and nerve toxins and we eat them — we are also eating all that they have eaten!

According to the FDA, raw oysters, mussels and clams are responsible for 85 percent of all illnesses caused by eating seafood. Such conditions as hepatitis A, salmonella, Norwalk virus, cholera and paralytic shellfish poisoning are just a few of the problems that are often linked to shellfish consumption. The more waste we dump into our oceans, lakes and streams, the greater the risk of getting sick from eating shellfish and other aquatic scavengers becomes.

Think about this: Pregnant women, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems are warned against handling uncooked shellfish.  If God’s dietary laws prohibiting the consumption of anything without fins or scales were followed, there would be no reason for such a warning.

Birds and Bugs

God did not leave birds, reptiles and insects uncovered in His laws. Carnivorous birds are obviously very important to controlling the populations of other groups of animals. Because these birds eat the flesh and blood of their prey, they become possible agents for transmitting disease and are unclean. Birds that prey on fish also accumulate a large amount of toxic chemicals in their bodies and are also prohibited.

Leviticus 11: 29-30; 42-43 tells us that reptiles are also unclean. Only insects from the locust and grasshopper family are permissible and have been used as a food source in the Middle East for thousands of years. John the Baptist is recorded to have eaten a diet comprised of honey and locusts.

    • Isaiah43v11

      The article is factual and still is to be followed to this very day, however THE Laws or Torah was given to a specific people to follow not the gentiles. The gentiles can do what ever they want concerning the dietary Laws how ever if you want to follow The GOD of Abraham Isaac, and Jacob as a gentile you definitely can and you should but you MUST also accept who the TRUE GOD is and who HIS people are and it isn’t a non-people that have an “ISH” attached to their name

      Instead of worrying about dietary Laws you should be focused on the TRUE and LIVING POWER that created the Heavens and Earth and who also does NOT have a side kick that was created during Pagan Rome!

      Old school Christians are SLOW to ramp up to speed with NEWER FOUND TRUTH with regard to this topic. ALL CHRISTIANS OWE IT TO THEMSELVES TO READ the section entitled “The Red Pill For Peace” beginning on page 87 here:


      • HypothesisFree

        The reason this is SO IMPORTANT as you will CLEARLY SEE, is that Christians in mass in EVERY DENOMINATION have been SO EASILY duped by Luciferians regarding the topic of this OP.

        I normally don’t click on lick posted in the comments mainly due to most of the links contain hogwash or other garbage, however the pdf you linked too is actually pretty good. I haven’t read the entire thing yet but so far its pretty good….so thanks for posting GOOD information! :smile:

      YES! One should NOT be eating anything unclean. Note, they call these animals “gourmet” food. Don’t believe one word of it. I tell people not to eat unclean food, but they still do.

      They don’t know how much they are ruining their bodies, immune system, organs and setting themselves up for viruses, bacteria and disease from which they cannot recover. :roll:

      You should not eat ONE bite of these animals.

      What the hell is going on with this site? 2 or 3 comments have disappeared from this thread in the past 4 hours, including 2 from me.

    • HypothesisFree

      OK, the moment I made my third post, now all the MISSING comments display for me, as well as a NEW comment from Slimey. Basically the same thing happened to me on another thread within the past 2 days.

      This CANNOT be a browser caching issue since each time I noticed the problem was IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING a fresh boot of Knoppix Linux off a DVD disc. So caching data locally on my PC is IMPOSSIBLE in this context, and furthermore, I do NOT have any network based caching set up.

      Moderator Mike – do you have ANY idea what may going on here?

      Spot on, I agree. 100% 😎😎😎 LoL.

    • Dlwrightsman

      This applies to Jews who do not believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God. For Christians it does not apply. Christ has blessed all food for he is the new covenant.

      See Mark 7:8, ! Timothy 1: 1-4, Ephesians 2:11, Colossians 2:13

      • HypothesisFree

        @Dlwrightsman You are 100% full of yourself! Just for starters I will share the following as there is only so much space I should claim in the comment section:

        “Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew
        an Israelite or Hebrew.” Jewish Almanac 1980, p. 3.
        “Esau-Edom is modern Jewry” 1925 Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. 5 page 41 and/or vol 4
        page 25. Edomites are NOT of Israel or Judah. Jews were NEVER SLAVES in Egypt with
        Moses: John 8:33.
        [Untruthful] “Edomite Jews began to call themselves Hebrews and Israelites in
        1860.” Encyclopedia Judaica 1971 Vol. 10:234

        According to Wikipedia, which is owned and controlled by Zionist Jews: “The English
        term Jew originates in the Biblical Hebrew word Yehudi, meaning “from the Kingdom
        of Judah” [or “Judean”]. It passed into Greek as Ioudaios and Latin as Iudaeus”.

        It would have been more accurate to translate these original language words as
        “Judean” = “from the Kingdom of Judah”. This is an INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT
        DISTINCTION because the Jews as we know them today were NEVER EVER EVER Judeans,
        because as we know (see above), “Esau-Edom is modern Jewry” AND Edomites are NOT of
        Israel or Judah!!! However, the Israelites and Jesus Christ were Judeans, and
        therefore Jesus Christ is NOT A JEW, and neither are the Jews as we know
        them today Israelites [by their own admission – see above].

        To be clear, whenever the Bible uses the word Jew, you should replace it with the
        phrase “pure-bred Israelite” or “Judean”.

        With this in mind Christians can FINALLY FULLY UNDERSTAND
        what was being said in the FOLLOWING BIBLE VERSES – -
        Jesus speaking to/of the Pharisees who are seed-line ancestors of the Jews:
        John 8 (KJV)
        37 I know that ye [Pharisees] are Abraham’s seed [though in the case of his
        descendant Esau’s seed-line, from which came the Pharisees/Jews, is no longer pure-
        bred]; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
        44 Ye are of your father [seed-line] the devil [beginning with Cain], and the lusts
        of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning [as was Cain], and
        abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie,
        he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

        Note: A popular objection is the Bible’s claim that the Angels in heaven do not
        pro-create … which is true, simply because all Angels are males, and in fact have
        male names. However, both Genesis 6:4 and 1 Enoch make it clear that they were
        able to and in fact did have SEX with and have OFFSPRING with Adamite women, as
        covered in greater detail later in this document, as well as how the book of Enoch
        is the Origin AND Foundation of Christianity, and was and still is Bible scripture,
        despite great efforts by the Jews to convince Christian Institutions otherwise.

        Revelation 3
        9 Behold, I will make them [Pharisees who are a hybrid mix of both the physical
        seed-line of Abraham and the Serpent - see above] of the synagogue of Satan, which
        say they are Jews [or more accurately pure-bred Israelites], and are not, but do
        lie; [Mary on the other hand is assumed to be of the pure-bred Israelite line, and
        thus so is Jesus]. Since only Jews are associated with synagogues, Jesus is
        clearly stating here that the Jews are NOT God’s chosen people, but rather the Jews
        are Satan’s chosen people.

        Genesis 3:15 (KJV) – And I will put enmity between thee [the Serpent/Cain seed-
        line] and the woman [Eve via Adams pure seed-line], and between thy seed and her
        seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

        These two seed-lines were to be in a vicious circle of constant war/conflict with
        each-other until the end days (see also Matthew 13 which TOTALLY NAILS THIS
        regarding the tares [the serpent/Cain/Pharisee/Jew EVIL seed-line] and the wheat
        [Adam/Seth GOOD seed-line]).

        Taken as a whole, Jesus is clearly declaring that the Pharisees and
        the Jews are bloodline Luciferians. A study of Judaism writings
        (Babylonian Talmud and the Kabbalah) prove Jesus to be absolutely
        correct in declaring this.

        One thing we know about Luciferians, is that they like to turn everything upside-
        down, or backwards, or the opposite of the truth, like saying that Lucifer is the
        light bearer, for example. With that in mind, consider the following quotes from
        Menachem Mendel Schneersonone, of the most famous and revered Rabbi’s to have ever
        “The difference in the inner quality between Jews and non-Jews is “so great that
        the bodies should be considered as completely different species.””…
        “An even greater difference exists in regard to the soul. Two contrary types of
        soul exist, a non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish
        soul stems from holiness.”

        The Lord God vs. God, Two Creations of Man – Genesis Mystery Finally Solved!
        [includes original Hebrew analysis, proving that ONE of these CREATOR Gods is a
        FALLEN ANGEL!]

        You of all people, before further making more a fool of yourself, seriously need to read “The Red Pill For Peace” beginning on page 87 here:

      OK, people,the craziness here at BIN continues. I just went again to an Internet cafe and without logging in called up THIS OP, and was able to see a follow-up comment by someone who was pleasantly surprised that the content of my PDF link ACTUALLY contained WORTHWHILE CONTENT. Upon returning to the original location where I posted my comments, I can no longer see the follow-up comment. It is like BIN keeps resorting to showing only OLDER comments until you post a new comment, and then shortly thereafter you can see ALL the comments.

      It would seem unlikely that this is only happening to me, but who knows. The Zionists would CERTAINLY prefer the PUBLIC not be PRIVY to the well-researched truths I tend to share via comments.

    • Andy

      fancy taking your dietary advice from a 2,000 yr old FAIRY-TALE :lol:

      bwah ha ha hahahahahahaha holy shit you lot are funny – i suppose you don’t wear clothing made with more than one material :eek:

      • Buck

        The one cloth was for the Priests and the Temple service to signify purity.
        This was the Old Testament Ceremonial Law that was nailed to the cross. Types and shadows (feast days and such) that pointed to the Lamb slain without blemish.
        The 10 Commandments (Moral Law) is still in effect! As Christ said, “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love”.
        Also “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus”
        Revelation 14:12
        Most “Christians” claim the 10 Commandments were nailed to the Cross, and tread the 4th Commandment under foot by keeping the Law of the Catholic church (That is Not Christian, but antichrist).

        - If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church.
        Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920

        - Sunday…It is a law of the Catholic Church alone…
        Catholic American Sentinel (June 1893)

        In the Book of Daniel, a beast is described as a Kingdom/Political power/Nation.

        - Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change was her act…And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters.
        C.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons on October 28, 1895

        It is right, ignorance is bliss….
