No fat?

Today’s reading: Leviticus 1:1 – Leviticus 14:32

Once again, I’ve discovered a tidbit in the law of God Almighty that I’d never before noticed. Most of you probably know that no blood is EVER to be consumed, for ‘the blood is the life’. Blood is sacred to Jehovah. But, apparently, fat also has a special rule: do not eat it. Consider this passage from Leviticus 7:

22 The LORD said to Moses, 23 “Say to the Israelites: ‘Do not eat any of the fat of cattle, sheep or goats. 24 The fat of an animal found dead or torn by wild animals may be used for any other purpose, but you must not eat it. 25Anyone who eats the fat of an animal from which a food offering may be[c]presented to the LORD must be cut off from their people. 26 And wherever you live, you must not eat the blood of any bird or animal. 27 Anyone who eats blood must be cut off from their people.’”

Consider the LORD God Almighty as your expert cardiologist. “Cut out the fat, Mrs. Gilbert. Next patient, please.”
