Love is self-preservation. This is the true meaning of the word, and this statement cannot be disputed. Before you can love anybody else you must first love yourself, and loving yourself means that you have knowledge of the fact that your body is the temple of God’s spirit – its dwelling place – therefore you must keep it clean. This means that nothing should ever enter the temple (your body) that would pollute, contaminate, or harm it (e.g., alcohol, tobacco, chemicals, hard drugs, swine meat and other dead animal flesh)...

The spirit of God, confined in a diseased, deficient, unhealthy brain – poisoned with the waste products of gluttony, wrong eating and wrong living – is utterly unable to produce harmonious thought. The lower brain (cerebellum), in an equally imperfect condition, cannot give birth to a vibration or current of energy that is as constructive as is necessary. For the most part the energy is used in a negative, destructive way. Thoughts are imperfect and spasmodic, and the acts which follow are equally so...

We should indeed treat our bodies with respect, and allow no unworthy things to enter such as hard drugs and harsh chemicals. However, in my own faith, foods aren't really something that can pollute since it is expelled soon thereafter, anyhow.

I believe when the Son gave this teaching, He was sharing with us truth so that we know, just as we haven't such a heavy burden to bear anymore because of His sacrifice in the Body, abstaining from certain meats for the body was apart of that burden we no longer bear.

The Father gave us these animals, so we should enjoy them with His blessing, as all things the Father has given us. :D He gave us salvation by His Son, we should enjoy this by and in faith. He gave us reason to believe by His Holy works and His Son's resurrection, so we should continue in hope and trust.

And I do also agree that to love others, we must love our own selves. Thus, the love we give anyone else can be the same, as we have been commanded.
