Ken Chitwood, an intern with LINC Houston (a non-profit
organization seeking the development of whole communities in the
Houston metro area) and a graduate student at Concordia University
Irvine, CA studying theology and culture, writes an excellent piece
on why Christians should pay close attention to their choice of
diet. He believes that vegetarianism has solid bases in the Bible,
and that Christian vegetarians are actually practicing Jesus'
teachings of non-violence.
What Would Jesus (Not) Eat?:
If we looked closely at the heart of Jesus ministry, I think we
would see that it is one of peace-making, healing and
reconciliation. Adopting a plant-base diet helps us exactly to do
that: to make peace with God’s creatures by not harming and killing
them unnecessarily, to help restore our health and the health of the
planet, and to bring creatures together in harmony.
