Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Genesis 1:29-31
(RSV)

“And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food." And it was so. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.” 

The Bible depicts vegetarianism as God’s ideal, and the diet conforms to the central biblical principle of steward-ship. In Eden, all creatures lived peacefully, and God told both humans and animals to consume only plant foods. Let's make this Thanksgiving celebration one of peace, non-violence, compassion and kindness!   

God’s ideal diet for us is a plant-based diet, which causes the least amount of suffering to people and God’s animals and also helps restore the environment. It’s good for all of God’s Creation!
