    "Animals are God's creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God's sight. ... Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God's absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering."
    --Rev. Andrew Linzey


    Jesus' message is one of love and compassion, yet there is nothing loving or compassionate about factory farms and slaughterhouses, where billions of animals live miserable lives and die violent, bloody deaths. Jesus mandates kindness, mercy, compassion, and love for all God's creation. He would be appalled by the degree of suffering we inflict on animals to indulge our acquired taste for their flesh.

    "I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity." -- Ecclesiastes

    You know, being that you are in a sense, pointing the finger at christians, don't you think that this would fit better over in the other forum? Hmmm...why not start a thread on Muslims who sneak and eat fried chicken :eek: when no one is looking. :jumping:

    Peace




    Whatever sis. I think this thread is fine where it's at and I'm not even pointing a finger really. Im just showing that there are christians who support the vegetarian lifestyle. As for moslems who eat chicken, that doesn't apply to me.....So.....

    VeggieTales is an American series of English language children's computer animated films featuring anthropomorphic vegetables. Developed by Big Idea, the films convey moral themes based on Christianity, often compatible with Judaism, spliced with satirical references to pop culture and current events.

    VeggieTales was created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki, who also provide many of the voices. Originally released in direct-to-video format, the series debuted in December 1993 and started being released on VHS tape (until November 15, 2005), and later onto DVD. From September 9, 2006 to September 11, 2009, VeggieTales was featured on the children's programming block called Qubo on the NBC network. As of 2009, the TV show is shown on Gospel Music Channel. The series has still been releasing new episodes on DVD while the television show airs. VeggieTales has also published books, music CDs and branded items such as toys, clothing, and seeds for vegetables and flowers. The main characters' names are Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber....

    CB,

    I'm confused. What does your post have to do with the Original topic? Bootzey is a militant vegetarian and would like to read what y'all have to say about vegetarianism.

    Peace

    I believe it is fine for all to eat meats of any sorts; while love and compassion should be had on all of the Father's creatures, eating them is not cruelty because the Father gave them to men and women to be meat.

    Though there are animals abused before they are slaughtered for food, not all people can be certain if what they eat was indeed abused before it reached their table. There's no way to make sure in each and every case, and since you are not the one abusing it, I believe it is fine.

    The Scriptures state that which is okay to be eaten, but Paul also lets it be known, whether eating meat or not, if done in faith, it is fine and far better than eating anything at all without faith because that is when you sin, but we should always help and encourage each other, even if we are eating different things.

    Also, blessing from the Father blesses all things which you eat, regardless of what it is or where it came from.
