Should Christians Eat Sallah Ram??? by hercatonchires(m): 7:39am On Sep 01, 2017
Let's ponder over this a little with some scriptural references.
This is not intended to marginalise or criticise, rather it is aimed at educating people and eradicating ignorance.
Consequently, let us brainstorm-christians and Muslims alike.
Refer to 1st Corinthians 10:21~31. Concentrate more on verses 27~31 (attached)

My question to my Muslim folks is; the act of slaughtering rams during the ileya festival, is it an act of sacrifice? I mean should it be considered a sacrificial occasion? Please elucidate, as this would help enlighten ignorant fellas.
To address the curious minded, I am a Christian (not a doctrinal one though smiley I was born and bred up north, as a result, I rolled with many Muslim folks and I've eaten a lot of rams for the record, and it's still counting. I look forward to reading reasonable comments and arguments. Happy new month and happy Eid-El-Kabir

You can eat if you want to, it doesn't change anything. The catch is, if you know that whatever you do or eat will cause your neighbour to backslide, its better not to go ahead. But personally, it is not what goes into a man (food) that makes him to sin, it is what comes out of him (his thoughts, words, actions).

your IQ appears to be hyperactive. It's actually the latter; "To expose an unknown ignorance"

1Corinthians 8:4-8
4 Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one. 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), 6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live. 7 However, there is not in everyone that knowledge; for some, with consciousness of the idol, until now eat it as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. 8 But food does not commend us to God; for neither if we eat are we the better, nor if we do not eat are we the worse.


Here, Paul was saying, we need the consciousness that there is one God and no other God aside Him, and when you eat, you are eating that meat as like a meet you will buy with your money without the consciousness that it was a sallah meat.

If you cannot meet that consciousness, then, stay away, but if you can convince yourself that this meat is provided by God, and there is no Allah or sort to which the meat was offered to, then, you can take the holy communion

How does the content of Paul's letter to some folks in Corinth hundreds of years ago affect you in 2017?
