So as most of you know I am new to being a Christian....and I have a question that is really bothering me....Leviticus 11:7-8 it says you can't eat swine (pigs). OK I understood that part fine, so I called my friend who is a preachers daughter and she said" That doesn't count because its in the old testament"......She says when Jesus died he said the old laws didn't matter and we would be forgiven..... I don't think that sounds right. Today at bible study I asked her to show me where it said that, and she pointed me to a verse that didnt' make a bit of sense to me......Somewhere right before the death of Jesus......... So does it say somewhere that the old testament "doesn't count" because Jesus died for our sins??? Does it say somewhere that we can eat swine, very specifically like it says we can't in the old testament? I have so many more questions, but I'll just start with this one.....Thank you all so much!!!
