|NASB||Genesis 9:4 "Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.|
|Genesis 9:4 "But you shall not eat meat along with its life, that is, its blood. [Lev 7:26; Acts 15:20; 21:25]|
|Subject: how can I eat flesh|
Bible Note: I agree that Christians are not bound by any diatary OT laws, but it's interesting that James does discourage the eating of blood in Acts.
Act 15:19 "Therefore it is my judgment that we do not trouble those who are turning to God from among the Gentiles,
Act 15:20 but that we write to them that they abstain from things contaminated by idols and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood.
Maybe it is because as Christians we have to be conscious of how others view us.
