I do not like meat and never did...But the Bible tells us to eat meat and talks about the land of milk and honey,and even says to eat the fat of meat sometimes... I would love to hear what all of you believers think about this
And my mama tells me I need to eat meat so my faith is not weak, and not to put my hope/faith in food, not that I do... It talks about that in the Bible too... Do you think it was only for the old testament people or does it also say it in the new testament?? I should really know this, right?

Just because one is permitted to do something does not mean one must do it.

And I was saying to my mom, who is eating this way too now, by the way In the future, if she decides she really wants to eat meat, is her choice, but at least for this short period of time (a few months to a year...or two ) she can live with out the animal products, and all fats..right?
Yes, it was a command for the descendants of Abraham until Passover's fulfillment in Christ (1 Corinthians 5.7; Hebrews 9.11-28; 1 Peter 1.18,19).
