Hi Frank and Mary,

I just got this from the pastor. So I copied and pasted it for you to see.  

How do I answer his argument?  

This is what he says:  

"guess I don't get your point. If you are saying eating meat is unhealthy for you don't eat it. But please do not use the Scripture to support this Law that you have made. You say the Scriptures don't support eating the Passover Lamb but again, you do not look at what the Scriptures say. Exodus chapter 12 is very clear. And you say that it never says that they ate lamb, really. "Shall take for himself a lamb" Exodus 12:3. "And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord's Passover." Exodus 12:11. Read the book of Leviticus on the sacrifices that were made, some of them part was given to the Lord and the rest was for the people to eat or the priests to eat, depending on the sacrifice. In the New Testament, just one verse to show you how we are not limited in what we eat, "Therefore let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ." Colossians 2:16-17. As I have said before, you don't have to eat meat if you don't want to but please do not JUDGE those who do, as Paul tells us here in Colossians. If you want to ignore the Scriptures then that is up to you but please do not say that the Scriptures tell us that we are not to eat meat. You are wrong. Sorry. I hope that helps and if it doesn't then there is no point going on. I have showed you what the Scriptures say an you can accept it or reject it but you can't use it to support your claim. And again, if the Passover meal included lamb, and it does, then the Passover meal that Jesus shared with His men means that they ate a lamb during this meal."
