Frequently Asked Questions
But what about insects, parasites, and fish? Is there ever a legitimate reason to kill them? Is that ever permissible?
The Apostle John said in 1John that the commandments of God are not burdensome. Most of the legitimate reasons for killing are going to be in self-defense. The Apostle John said that the commandments of God are not burdensome and that whatever is born of the belief that Jesus is the Anointed of God is a world overcomer, viz., whatever is born of God overcometh the world.
There are natural repellants that can be obtained, relatively inexpensively.
There's not a situation that could possibly come up between us and the animals that there's not a ready made provision available through the High Priestly Ministry of Jesus Christ to miraculously and compassionately deal with the situation. We just have to SEEK the wisdom of God in Christ until we find it; until the Holy Spirit is manifested AGAIN in our hearts for the deliverance of creation.
The answer to this, as my readers are hopefully already perceiving, is identical to how I answered the "pet food" issue. You can meditate in the Hosea 2:18 covenant and worship God in spirit and in truth with such a diligence and such a spiritual violence of internal spiritual combustion with your givings of thanks before God in Christ until you KNOW everything that needs to be known to address your situation.
In summary: Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and do as
you see best in this situation, if you're dealing with an immediate and
pressing emergency. But, don't settle for having to always be cruel and
harsh towards the creation that we are knitted together with. Meditate
and give thanks; lose yourself in the God of the Hosea 2:18 covenant
until great compassion, wisdom, power, and provision is manifested the
next time you encounter an animal, or what society would call an
embarrassing situation with insects, parasites, etc.
Go on to What do you say to the
argument that this is a threat to cultural diversity and the heritage of
many peoples to oppose what you call cruelty towards animals?
