because unwittingly eating Halal is not a sin against yourself. Knowingly eating Halal is.

This view is found neither in the Mosaic Law nor in Paul. Paul especially NEVER says that eating meat sacrificed to idols in and of itself is sin. The only sin is that caused by giving offense to others. Period.

Besides, it’s still not been established by any credible authority that “eating Halal” violates by biblical command. This particular pastor has his view. He is mistaken, IMO.

Also, I stated that you were being an anti-Christian bigot by your asking, “Why are Christians so dumb?” Sorry if my comment didn’t provide the appropriate context.

Well then obviously you haven’t paid attention to my background or other posts, or you would not make such a silly statement.

“The only sin is that caused by giving offense to others.”

No, it’s misleading others.

This is the unequivocal instruction given by Peter:

“You must abstain from eating food offered to idols, from consuming blood or the meat of strangled animals, and from sexual immorality.”

Paul gives the same unequivical instruciton:

“But if someone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then do not eat it”

You attempt to swallow the rule by misreading Paul’s subsequent reason behind the rule.

When I am told by the apostles to “jump,” I jump. I know my place is not to question why.

Me, I care about people who might be mislead into thinking islam is a road to heaven.

IF you don’t, then perhaps you should look at yourself.
