The taboo on pigs and camels has led to the practice of ritual slaughter of animals, even though the Bible does not prescribe it. A permitted food (e.g., cattle, chicken) that has not been ritually slaughtered is considered unclean. The prohibition against eating meat is not limited to the animal kingdom, but extends to human beings as well.
God commands the Israelites to abstain from eating the flesh of their sons and daughters (Exodus 20:13-15).
The same commandment is found in the New Testament: “You shall not eat flesh with its lifeblood” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) and “If any man eat of any tree of the garden, whether it be an olive tree or a fig tree, and then die, he shall surely be put to death; his blood shall be on his own head.”
The prohibition of eating flesh from animals that have died of natural causes, such as from a snake bite or from an animal that is diseased or injured, is even more explicit.

In the same way, we are called to be stewards of the gifts of God given to us by the Holy Spirit. We are to use these gifts for the good of our neighbor and for our own good.

What is forbidden to eat in Christianity?
The only dietary restrictions specified for Christians in the New Testament are to “abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from meat of strangled animals” (Acts 15:29), teachings that the early Church Fathers, such as Clement of Alexandria and Origen, believed to be in harmony with the teachings of the Bible.
In fact, it was not until the fourth century that Christians were forbidden to eat meat from animals that had been slaughtered according to the Jewish dietary laws. In the fifth century, however, the Council of Nicaea (325) forbade Christians from eating meat slaughtered by the Jews. This was the first time in history that a Christian council had prohibited the eating of meat by non-Christians.
It was also the beginning of a long period of persecution of Christians, which lasted for the next two thousand years. During this time, Christians had to pay a heavy price for their faith. They were forced to convert to Judaism, and they were often tortured and executed for refusing to do so. As a result of this persecution, many Christians died of starvation, disease, or martyrdom.

Jainism has strict rules for the protection of life and non-violence. They do not eat eggs, fish, meat, or dairy products. They also believe in reincarnation, which is the belief that one’s past life is reflected in the present one.
