    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 f…[Read more]

    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..

    Returning now to the disciples instruction to gentiles (Acts):
    28 The Holy Spirit has led us to the decision that no burden should be placed on you other than these essentials: 
    29 refuse food offered to idols, blood, the meat from strangled animals, and sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these you will do well. Farewell.

    I think that God cares about the animals more than we imagine. We think we are the superior race, and everything is about us, but is it? Jesus said “If only you had known the meaning of ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent.”, which is obviously not just innocent people like Jesus himself, but innocent ani…[Read more]

    “portions of the Old Testament speak out plainly against sacrifice, thus: “the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart….

    T8,

    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. In the Lord’s prayer, we are told to pray ‘Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on Earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread…..’

    Thanks t8, but cows, chooks etc are innocent…
    Why all the blood?

    God said that HE did NOT speak to the fathers concerning sacrifices, and did not require them.

    Mercy for animals?

    And Jesus said (quoting scripture) “Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ (Matthew 9:13).

    Jesus came as the final “sacrificial lamb” and later destroyed the temple, thus putting an end to the practice of animal sacrifices in the temple!

  • Hi all,

    I have been on a learning journey the past few days.

    Firstly, I am a vegetarian.

    I was thinking about what James said in Acts that the only requirement for Gentiles is to refrain from things sacrificed to idols, and from blood, etc.

    Further on, Paul seems to go against this by saying people can eat whatever they wan’t.

    I have always…[Read more]
