All-Creatures Ministry and Web Site
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 7 Jul 2013
When reading and understanding the Bible, we need to first separate what we are reading into two categories: the creation and heavenly will of God, and the ways of the world. Then, as you pointed out, we are to realize that Jesus' whole ministry was to lead people back into the heavenly will of God, and to free creation from its present corruption, which Paul expands upon in Romans 8:18f.
The whole sacrificial system is part of the ways of the fallen world.
Have you ever talked to the people about the pain and suffering inflicted upon animals, and how it goes against the teachings of Jesus? No human or animal should ever be oppressed by someone else.
Thank you for telling us about your ministry. Perhaps one day we'll get a chance to meet in person.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
