Meat sacrificed to idols – 4

Leviticus chapter 17 has 5 statutes that Yehovah gives His son, Israel concerning how they are to treat their clean meat.

The first statute is the one that discusses “meat sacrificed to idols” and it is something that every beef, goat and lamb eater is participating in and is something that will get us cut out from among Yehovah’s people. Keep in mind, we are not talking about meat sacrificed to idols, we are talking about meat that is slaughtered for our food; the “idols” portion is more about how the animal is killed, who kills it and whose statutes were followed in that process.

Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul. (Eze 3:18)
