Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Luke 15:23

This Week’s Bible Verse
… and bring the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and make merry;…
Eating the “fatted calf” was a sign of joy and celebration that, presumably, Jesus’ audience understood. This was a parable, and no calf was actually killed. When people today use language and metaphors such as “to kill two birds with one stone,” that doesn’t mean that we actually approve of such behavior. Furthermore, if Jesus had approved of animal agriculture in his day, it would not follow that he would endorse modern factory farming.
