Does being a Christian entail conversion to Judaism?
Absolutely not, as Judaism isn't all there, it is incomplete (which is why Yeshua came to magnify the Law and the Prophets and fulfill many prophecies). However, becoming a Christian does entail forsaking pagan practices and idolatrous thoughts (Isa. 55:7-9).
God doesn't only love the Jews and Israelites, but all mankind.
Have you never read where our Great Creator God revealed these dietary laws to Noah - long before the patriarch Judah, son of Jacob-Israel, was born or "Judaism" evolved?
Noah took two of every unclean critter into the Ark, and took seven of the clean. All mankind knew this dietary distinction and most later forgot it, either through woeful neglect or rebellion - an unhealthy rejection of the divine menu due to covetousness - and God restored it to Israel (all Twelve Tribes of Israel) to share with the world.
1 Then the LORD said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2 You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3 also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth.
