Can We Eat All Things? 1 Timothy 4 – 119 Ministries
by Scott Blair on October 31, 2012
1 Timothy 4:4 is a verse often cited to support the typical understanding that God has abolished some of His commandments, specifically in this case, the dietary instructions. This appears to be a valid claim when the verse is examined in isolation. However, as soon as we employ sound hermeneutical principles by incorporating surrounding context, we find that 1 Timothy 4:4 actually teaches us that God’s dietary instructions are not abolished at all. In fact, we find that 1 Timothy 4 actually proves that we should still be keeping God’s dietary instructions. This 30 minute teaching is essential to anyone still struggling with Paul’s letters and his teachings on the law.
