Meat Eating & the Bible

Hi Meetup Member,

I just added this question and response to Earthsave's "Frequently Asked Questions" webpage:

Question - How could meat eating be wrong when it is sanctioned by God's Word, the Holy Bible?

The brutality of factory farms - the source of nearly all meat, dairy, and eggs - are flagrantly at odds with God's repeated calls for mercy and peace.

After the flood, God's "choice" is merely a concession to human savagery, and it comes with a dreadful curse - the dissolution of our bond with animals and the earth - a terrible price to pay. Only if we twist God's word to rationalize our addiction to cruel animal products could we fool ourselves - at least superficially - into believing that God doesn't care if we are violent or peaceful, or if we intentionally cause harm or try to avoid it.

To consume animal products in order to survive is one thing. To engage in entirely avoidable meanness, in order to satisfy an indulgence, is quite another and violates the very essence of God's calls to be merciful and peaceful. To kill for pleasure exemplifies greed, a deadly sin, and blatantly goes against God's word.



See full webpage is at http://earthsavebaltimore.org/node/49­. Thanks to Gary Loewenthal, who provided the content for this item.

Please let me know if you have a question in mind that we might want to consider adding to this page.

Be well!

Peace, Don Robertson
