Question
Hi Rabbi, I am trying to keep kosher and my friend said I should buy only food that has a special symbol that means it’s kosher. Why I can’t I just read the ingredients and see if they are all kosher? Thanks!

Question
Shalom! I'm Andrew. Studying in detail the Genesis creation and history of mankind. My aim is to establish that the eating of clean animals (i.e. kosher) and avoiding unclean was established after the flood, and not for the first time at Mt Sinai after the Exodus. Some Christians use Gen 9:3 (Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you..KJV) to say that swine was only a rule for Israel, because it was only given to them at Sinai. I don't believe this. I first use Leviticus 18:27 to establish that when God uses the word "abomination" it means that it always was and always will be, because God does not change (Malachi 3:6). Therefore when in Leviticus 11 God pronounces the eating of unclean flesh an abomination, it means it always was. Now then Genesis 7:2, speaking of the 7 clean beasts on the Ark, would suggest to me that Noah knew of God's eating plan and the abomination of unclean flesh, and so Genesis 9:3 would not include the unclean animals. Am I on the right track? Or would you add or change my study on this? Thank you,
