    “Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

    Don’t you see?

    “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.” Matthew 10:29

    Luke 12:6 “Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God.”

    If every bird or animal is remembered before God, we are a sorry lot indeed..

    8“How can you say, ‘We are wise,
    and the law of the LORD is with us’?
    But behold, the lying pen of the scribes
    has made it into a lie.” Jeremiah 8:8.

    Jeremiah 7:

    Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat the flesh. 22 For in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices. 23 But this command I gave them: ‘Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’ 24 But they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and the stubbornness of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward. 25 From the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt to this day, I have persistently sent all my servants the prophets to them, day after day. 26 Yet they did not listen to me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers.

    27 “So you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you. You shall call to them, but they will not answer you. 28 And you shall say to them, ‘This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the LORD their God, and did not accept discipline; truth has perished; it is cut off from their lips.

    Paul: “Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience.” (1 Corinthians 10:25)

    The Disciples: “For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay no greater burden on you than these necessary things: that you abstain from meat sacrificed to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality, from which if you keep yourselves, it will be well with you.” (Acts 15:28)

    Paul: “Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience.” (1 Corinthians 10:25)

    The disciples say under the authority of the Holy Spirit to abstain from eating meat and blood.

    Paul says to eat whatever meat you want to without conscience.

    Wow!

     

    Bearing this is mind:

    The Disciples to the gentiles: “For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay no greater burden on you than these necessary things: that you abstain from meat sacrificed to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality, from which if you keep yourselves, it will be well with you.” (Acts 15:28)

    Paul elaborates on his opposing view:

    Advice about Food Offered to False Gods

    Now, concerning food offered to false gods: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge makes people arrogant, but love builds them up. Those who think they know something still have a lot to learn. But if they love God, they are known by God.

    Now about eating food that was offered to false gods: We know that the false gods in this world don’t really exist and that no god exists except the one God. People may say that there are gods in heaven and on earth—many gods and many lords, as they would call them. But for us,

    “There is only one God, the Father.
        Everything came from him, and we live for him.
    There is only one Lord, Jesus Christ.
        Everything came into being through him,
            and we live because of him.”

    But not everyone knows this. Some people are so used to worshiping false gods that they believe they are eating food offered to a false god. So they feel guilty because their conscience is weak.

    Food will not affect our relationship with God. We are no worse off if we eat that food and no better off if we don’t. But be careful that by using your freedom you don’t somehow make a believer who is weak in faith fall into sin. 10 For example, suppose someone with a weak conscience sees you, who have this knowledge, eating in the temple of a false god. Won’t you be encouraging that person to eat food offered to a false god? 11 In that case, your knowledge is ruining a believer whose faith is weak, a believer for whom Christ died.

    Hi Miia,

    The High Priest (Jesus Christ) carried the flesh body of the Lamb of God(Jesus) into the heavenly temple.(Heb)

    All the other animal sacrifices pointed towards this saving event.

    Adam and Eve were vegetarians in the garden of Eden. That was God’s intention. As you rightly say, that is how it will be in the new Earth.

    God cursed the Earth and it became difficult to eat from trees as he filled the world with weeds. Then after the flood a second event took place and mankind’s time on earth was reduced and it was then that God allowed eating of flesh. In a cursed world, the Plant Kingdom was not enough to sustain people it seems.

    Hi Nick,

    according to Hebrews the blood of animals was not necessary.

    Hebrews 10

    For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sinsConsequently, when Christ came into the world, he said,

    Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired,
        but a body you have prepared for me;
    6 in burnt offerings and sin offerings
        you have taken no pleasure.
    Then I said, ‘See, God, I have come to do your will, O God’
        (in the scroll of the book it is written of me).”

    Hi Ed.

    I just can’t believe people can’t see the contradiction between Paul and the Disciples.

    The Disciples said to the gentiles: eat no meat or blood.

    Paul said eat whatever the heck you want.

    Hi Miia,

    Not quite the same thing.

    It is not for us to question the ways of God.

    Right, so according to you, t8, it is difficult to eat plants because of the weeds?? Is it easier to slaughter an animal than to weed? And according to you the plant kingdom is not enough to sustain people?

    Cheack out this strongman:

     

    You said

    Then after the flood a second event took place and mankind’s time on earth was reduced and it was then that God allowed eating of flesh.

    Until the plant life grew back?
