Easy. There are often good practical resaons for religious rules. Seafood is very perishable, and in the olden days there was no refrigeration, so eating seafood was dangerous you could get food poisoning. Pork was also dangerous because pigs carried a parasite that you could catch by eating the pork. So God (or the church) had good reason to warn people against eating both these things.Of course, they didn't have refrigeration in the New Testament either, but Jesus's way was to let people make up their own minds and take responsibility for their own actions, rather than setting up rigid rules for everything. So in the New Testament, it's up to the individual to make sure their seafood is fresh or their pork is really well cooked (which kills the parasite). These days, we have refrigeration and pigs are tested for parasites, so it's OK to eat these things now. The bar on eating them in some religions is a matter of tradition only.

That's a knowing aneswr to a difficult question
