Osteen promotes kosher?

06 June 2009

Aaron Eby relates an interesting video from Joel Osteen's church where Osteen tells his congregation to avoid eating pork or shellfish in order to promote healthy living.  Is Osteen promoting kosher?

Not really.

As Mr. Eby points out in his article, healthy living is never one of the justifications Scripture provides for the dietary laws.  Instead we only find reference to holiness in the kosher passages.

If you have never taken the time to read it I highly recommend Mr. Eby's blog, Messianics for Torah.
