Animal Gospel

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea. ~Isaiah 11:9

Frequently Asked Questions

But why would God put the animals here if not for us to eat?

That's the rambling of a baby. Little babies believe that everything that they see NEEDS to go into their mouth! God did not put the mountains here for us to eat, nor the volcanoes for us to eat, and the moon isn't made out of cheese for us to eat!

Animals have as legitimate of a right to live for their own sakes and for the sake of their Creator as any of the rest of us. For an animal to die of old age and be buried is not the wasting of a resource, but the simple passage of a created being from one form of existence to another form of existence, just like any of the rest of us!

And believe it or not: In the beginning, God's first attempt at remedying the situation of His lonely man was not to create a woman but to create the animals! Genesis chapter 2 says that it's not good for man to be alone. God's solution? God immediately creates the animals in the next verse. Adam saw how the animals related to each other and wanted something more for himself out of life, so God created woman.
