Thanks for writing back.
Actually, you hit a key factor about why the world has remained cursed and filled with sinful ways. Jesus tells us to pray for our heavenly Father’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10), where there is pain or death. So, if we are truly going to pray for something, as the Lord tells us to do, then we should also do everything in our power to end as much suffering and death as we possibly can. We don’t believe it is compatible with the Lord’s edict, to just wait for Him to correct the problems; it is up to us, too. There is a lot more to this, if you care to discuss it further.
Heidi, our 75-80 lb. vegan, mixed breed dog, who died only at the age of 15 from complications from an insect bite, was extremely healthy and active up to a few days before her death. She ate mostly what we ate, a well-rounded unprocessed whole plant food diet. She loved to munch on raw carrots, and her favorite treat was a peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread. She also loved beans and rice dishes, and pasta fazool with veggies, especially if they were spicy. It was funny looking at her method of communicating with us when she wanted her food a little more spicy. After taking the first bite, she would stop eating, look at her food, then look at us and back to her food and then at the refrigerator, where we kept the bottle of hot sauce, and back to us and her food. After a few times at this we caught on to her desire. When we opened the refrigerator door and took out the bottle of hot sauce, her tail would wag like crazy. So we’d add a little hot sauce and mix up her food, and she dig right in and finish her meal.
Have you seen the recipe section of our web site?
