    Peter said I could have both. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    I vote Jesus AND Bacon!! How could the church have missed this opportunity!

    Instead of putting in bagel shops (which are so 1990’s), and coffee bars (very hip 2000’s), they can take the lead in the community by having a Bacon Bar!! YES!!

    Bacon and Bible Time! What flavor of Bacon would Jesus endorse today? Turkey bacon for outreach to the ethnic community! Pork bacon for the die-hard gentiles! YES!

    All those sizzling smells being blown out into the surrounding neighbors each Sunday and Wednesday! Yes!

    Think of the thousands that will come now that the church is more relevant! Yum!

    ROFL…. gods… I must be in a cynical mood this morning… I better go fry up some bacon and eggs… thank the Lord for the food, and declare that I am on the cutting edge of Christianity…. 😉

  3. I like the way you ham in up Caryn.

    Have a handful of blueberries and walnuts with your bacon (or ham or beef or any kind of processed meat) and all will be well.

    Aww – the ladies in church would miss me if I had bacon instead of church.

    There’s a nice 95 year old there – but I think an age gap of over 40 years might be a bit much for asking her out 😉

  7. 1 Corinthians 6:12 – All things are lawful unto me, but all things are NOT EXPEDIENT: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

    Pork was considered unclean for a reason, as were the other things listed as “unclean” in Deuteronomy and Leviticus. In is clear these were all health food rules when we look at them from a microbiological standpoint. (I am a doctor).

    So, it is fine to mock the people who say that it is “against the Law” to eat pork/bacon. Of course, they are wrong. But, the truth is…you won’t “go to hell” for eating bacon (or an oyster), but…you might still die from it.

    Today’s bacon is one of THE worst things that can be put into the body. I’m always glad to see the scientific articles exposing the truth about how are diets are killing us. Following the health food rules in Deuteronomy is still a good idea if you are seeking optimal health. (e.g. Things from the water that do not have “fins AND scales” are the filters of the ocean and contain “God knows what” when they are harvested from today’s polluted waters, which also now contain some incredible superbugs.)
