One common question among new believers, and even old believers wanting to draw nearer to God, is the following: Are Christians required to follow a specific diet in order to be saved. Generally, the answer is no. God does not require you to follow rules you do not know about, but once you know about them, you should follow them to the best of your ability. If we look at some verses in the Bible, three options emerge for a Christian diet, one option is a vegan diet (like Daniel and Eden), another a kosher diet which includes animal products (Mosiac Law), and a third allows us to eat anything, including pork and birds of prey (God’s Grace). We will examine some Bible verses that are commonly used to support each of these theories and try to determine which theory is according to God’s will.
