Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Cindy About Humanely Slaughtering Animals for Food - 5 Aug 2009
I do agree with you about the fact that it is wrong to torture innocent animals. However, if you don't torture them and don't purposely try to put them in agony, then I don't see anything wrong with eating animals.
In the Bible God told Abraham many others to offer a burnt sacrifice to him, and God also gave Peter permission to kill and eat the animals in Acts in Peter's dream. I love animals and hate to see them in pain and to kill them in such a terrible way is awful, but if you do it quickly and painlessly I think it is ok.
Also in the Bible God gets Cain in trouble for not offering a lamb to God but instead offering fruits and vegetables, but God accepted Abel's offering of a sheep. I am not saying it is wrong not to eat animals. I am fine with that, but I don't think it is wrong if you don't put them in severe pain.

Thank you for writing.
Anyone can try to justify killing an animal because animals were killed
in the Bible, but none of this is in the creation or heavenly intent of God.
Food animals are not put to sleep like companion animals. They suffer
horrible deaths and the vast majority suffer all of their lives. What you
propose only happens in a dream world, and not in reality.
The only way to truly be compassionate and kind to animals is to be a vegan.
In the Love of the Lord,
