  • Catholic and Orthodox Christians treat this day as a fast day. Orthodox Christians spend all this day in fasting from all food, to the extent that their health permits. Catholics also refrain from more than one normal meal, though they may add up to two small meals as required for good health. The Book of Common Prayer designates Good Friday as a day of fasting, but the contemporary worship books make no such reference. As Good Friday is the most holy day in Holy Week, most Catholics do not eat meat. http://www.answers.com/topic/good-friday Though the rules for fasting and abstinence have relaxed over the centuries, Catholics still see Lent as a sacred time of self-denial, prayerful contemplation, and, yes, breaded cod. Adult Catholics are expected to fast (usually defined as eating one meal a day) on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday* and to abstain from eating meat on each Friday in Lent and on Ash Wednesday. Catholic-school kids see their lunchroom hot dogs replaced with meat-free fare. Many Catholics still "give up something for Lent"—chocolate or alcohol, for example. But the emphasis is as likely to be on almsgiving or acts of charity, in hopes of making the world or one's self better rather than simply abstaining from pleasure. http://www.slate.com/id/2137092/
  • 1Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 1Ti 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 1Ti 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 1Ti 4:4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 1Ti 4:5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. 1Ti 4:6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. There is no doctrine in the bible telling us to abstain from eating meat on Good Friday.This is a doctrine of devils as Timothy tells us in the bible.If we call ourselves Christian, lets examine everything in light of the word of God
  • This is part of the Old Testament tradition, which Jesus eliminated... (Acts 10:15) And the voice spoke again to him, the second time:
  • That is nonsense. Of course they do eat meat if they want to unless they belong to some sect that forbids it. Or have made a pledge to God to abstain.

  • A day of fasting and holiness.
  • It is part of their religion.
  • When I eat meat I don't care what day it is. I am a Christian but do not live by the Old Testament laws because Jesus Christ removed all the old law and replaced it with the Law of Love and grace. Too many "Christians" insist to live under the old law making Jesus Christ death useless and of no importance. how sad!
