Why Are Non Islamic Products Becoming “Halal” Approved?

Recently I have seen on many non Islamic food products in New Zealand the statement: “Halal Approved” on the labels.

This begs the question. Why? Western nations are not Islamic, nor should food companies that do not have Islamic beliefs be intruding on anyone’s rights to be able to choose not eat foods sacrificed to Idols and false gods or who do not believe the same things.

What is Halal?

Halal is a Islamic blessing while they kill their animals for food. Similar to Kosher, however not blessed by the true and only God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob.

What does the bible say?

Acts 15: 22-28:

22 Then the emissaries and the elders, together with the whole Messianic community, decided to select men from among themselves to send to Antioch with Sha’ul and Bar-Nabba. They sent Y’hudah, called Bar-Sabba, and Sila, both leading men among the brothers, 23 with the following letter:

From: The emissaries and the elders, your brothers

To: The brothers from among the Gentiles throughout Antioch, Syria and Cilicia

Greetings!

24 We have heard that some people went out from among us without our authorization, and that they have upset you with their talk, unsettling your minds. 25 So we have decided unanimously to select men and send them to you with our dear friends Bar-Nabba and Sha’ul, 26 who have dedicated their lives to upholding the name of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah. 27 So we have sent Y’hudah and Sila, and they will confirm in person what we are writing.

28 For it seemed good to the Ruach HaKodesh and to us not to lay any heavier burden on you than the following requirements: 29 to abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from fornication. If you keep yourselves from these, you will be doing the right thing.

Shalom!
