Devasahayam, meaning of Acts 10:14

Reader comment on item: Is Turkey's Government Starting a Muslim Reformation?
in response to reader comment: You must have meant "JEWS and Muslims"

First we must remember that Peter spent 3 1/2 years in Christ's companionship. So you need to consider that spending this time with Christ did not change his diet, that is Christ never ate pork and neither did his disciples, nor are there any words from Christ authorizing pork as an acceptable food. Secondly, you need to read the scriptures from Acts:10:14 to Acts: 10:28.

Acts 10:28, explains the purpose of Acts 10:14. Acts 10:28: And he said unto them, You know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean. Therefore, Acts 10:14 was not approval to eat unclean food, rather it was to teach Peter a lesson that he should not only associate with Jews but also with people of other nations. 1John2:7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning.
