I hereby challenge all bacon lovers, ham eaters, and all who think it is OK to eat pork, shellfish, catfish, sharks, eels, rabbits, and anything else that would be considered unclean according to Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14 to eat two of the most poisonous animals on the planet: The Golden Poison Dart Frog and the Puffer Fish. Their bodies are filled with poison deadly enough to kill 10 to 30 grown men. But, your faith tells you that 1 Timothy 4:4 means you can eat whatever you want. Well, the verse also says NOTHING IS TO BE REFUSED. So, if your understanding of the verse allows you to eat anything and everything, then it must also be that you are not allowed to refuse. Bon Appetit!

Is it possible that you are not seeing the challenge within the challenge? It’s not really about telling people to eat poison, it’s about challenging wrong interpretations of Scripture.

Took a second but I figured it out. My bad.

So since I eat all those things are you saying I’m wrong? Also I’m not stupid enough to eat out right poison or do like those that pick up poisonous snakes and tempt them to bite me, I know the verse means if one of these poison were to some how be put into my body I know that my God has the power to heal me, and yes Iam free to eat pork, shell fish etc….. As Paul states you are not to judge what one man calls holy and what one deems ok to eat.
