Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Book Excerpt

The following excerpt was sent to us by one of our CVA sustaining members.

God, considering Himself, is as infinitely separate from all possibility of doing hurt, or willing pain to any creature, as He is from suffering pain or hurt from the hand of man...
This is because He is in Himself, in His Holy Trinity, nothing else but the boundless Abyss of all that is good, and sweet, and amiable; and therefore stands in the utmost contrariety to every thing that is not a blessing, in an eternal impossibility of willing and intending a moment's pain or hurt to any creature...

For, from this unbounded source of goodness and perfection, nothing but infinite streams of blessing are perpetually flowing forth upon all nature and creature, in more incessant plenty than rays of light stream from the sun...

And as the sun has but one nature and can give forth nothing but the blessings of light, so the Holy Triune God has but one nature and intent towards all the creation, which is, to pour forth the riches and sweetness of his divine perfections upon every thing that is capable of them and according to its capacity to receive them.

*Excerpts from:
Wholly for God
(118-119) by William Law.
A Serious Call to a Devote and Holy Life; The Spirit of Love. Edited by Paul G.Stanwood. New York: Paulist Press, 1978.
