13. Eating Tasty Food
Okay, we’re exaggerating a bit on this entry but you will get the point in a moment.
If you open up your Bible or search engine to Leviticus 3:17, which is quickly becoming our least favorite passage, you will see the statement: “It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that you eat neither fat nor blood.”
That basically rules out a nice meaty rare steak, or a nice slab of bacon, or just about any meat that isn’t turkey or chicken breast.
There are probably a ton of rational reasons for this entry and most of them probably have something to do with the lackluster regulation (read: none) on food back in those days. For the health of yourself and your family you were probably better off eating a much stricter diet. Still, this doesn’t read like something we would be happy following — and so we don’t. Eat those cheeseburgers! Ask forgiveness, not permission!
