Under the New Covenant, all food is clean. God sent Peter a vision of unclean beasts and told Peter to ?kill and eat (Acts 10:13). Peter told God that he would never eat anything unclean (Acts 10:14), and God informed Peter that He had cleansed all meat (Acts 10:15). Jesus also specifically said that all food is clean in the New Testament (Mk 7:19).Later on, the apostle Paul reiterates this idea and says that all meat is clean unless it offends your conscience (Rom 14:20). So, feel free to eat pork, rattlesnake (if you dare), and clams without fear of sin.
Christians are Gentiles. They are therefor not required by God to keep His laws, that He gave His chosen people Israel. Gentiles are only required by God to keep the Noahide laws, and those do not refer to pork. Jews however are required by God to keep all 613 Commandments, and therefor Jews are not allowed by God to eat pork.
( 65 ) And if only the People of the Scripture had believed and feared Allah, We would have removed from them their misdeeds and admitted them to Gardens of Pleasure.
( 66 ) And if only they upheld [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, they would have consumed [provision] from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them are a moderate community, but many of them - evil is that which they do.
Christians are not bound by Jewish dietary restrictions. We have the right to eat whatever we want, but we do not have the right to offend other people, even if they are wrong. For the Christian in this age, though, we have freedom to eat whatever we wish as long as it does not cause someone else to stumble in his/her faith.
Christians are very selective as to what they follow in the bible. I mean I don't know why a Christian would eat pork that's forbidden under the same laws they want to use to persecute everyone else. (e.g homosrxuality ect.)
Because no foods are really taboo after Christ came and the New Covenant came into being. Pork, as long as its well cooked, is not a problem. Its Muslims and Jews who have all the weird, complicated food issues.
