Follow tradition, or follow YaHVaH in His WORD:
Clean/Unclean: the first sin, eating something, Genesis 2:16. Ber/Gen 7:2, the clean animals were stored on the ark by seven's. It's careless when we teach that all animals, the clean and unclean, went into the ark by two's. Come out of our old traditions into Truth of YaHVaH Word.
First Place of Mention about food is found in Gen/Ber 7:2 "Of every clean beast thou shalt take to Thee by sevens...those that are not clean by two, the male and his female."
