Do Christians eat meat?

Eating meat is a matter of personal choice for Christians. Some Christians do not eat meat, because of their own views. Some Christians do not eat meat because they understand the views of others who do not eat meat and do not want to offend them.

There is a reason for this freedom to eat meat or to abstain: the Bible makes a distinction between humans and animals. The Bible does not teach that humans will be reborn as an animal, because rebirth is not a Christian teaching. It teaches that people live only one life. Instead, God has given animals as food to humans, as well as vegetables. In fact, the Saviour Jesus declared all foods “clean”:

 Nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him ‘unclean’? For it doesn’t go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out of his body. (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods “clean.”)[12]
