We often get questions and a few are asked so often, we thought we'd add address them on Points to Ponder. Here's one we see a lot, in various forms:

"1 Timothy 4 also covers that anything is now clean..."

Our answer:

In reality, even you don't believe what you said, that "anything" is clean. What that statement refers to is what your culture says is clean. You consider shellfish, pork and catfish "food" but wouldn't consider rats, bats, roaches, maggots, turkey buzzards, and other things your culture calls disgusting, "food." Therefore, even you don't really consider "anything" to be food. The true issue is whose definition you choose to live by: that of your culture or God's.
