What defiles a man is not food, but things that enter through the feeling, ear and eye gates do.
Jesus was talking about what corrupts a man and makes him unfit for God to use him in His Kingdom in Mk.7:14-23. There are several gates or doors into the spirit, heart and belly of a man.
The mouth is directly connected to the belly, and all foods go through it to the belly. The useful parts are absolved into the bloodstreams while the waste is passed out into the draught. So food can’t defile or make you unacceptable to God unless He had previously told you not to eat any particular food item.
When it comes to the spirit or heart of a man, it is a different thing. The feeling, ear and eye gates go straight to your heart or spirit. Words and actions are stored in there, whether negative or positive, waiting to be released at an opportune time.
