Dear Erica:

It is so nice to hear from you, and we remember your name and writings.

God reluctantly allowed people to eat animals because of their hardness of heart, and part of this reluctance is seen in the curses that come with eating flesh. See:

and

We hope this helps.

A lot of the detailed descriptions are following the worldly ways of human beings, and are not in the heavenly will of God.

Animal sacrifice was never to be an example of Jesus, and Jesus proved this by cleansing the Temple and stopping the sacrificial cult for a short time, the proof of this is that God destroyed the Temple less than 40 years later, ending the Hebrew cult of sacrifice up to the present time.

Furthermore, Jesus called all of us away from worldly living and into living in the heavenly will of God where there is no suffering or death. Remember, we are to be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48).

Please take a look at some of our other Bible Section commentaries, as they may also help you get a better grasp on this problem.

If we can be of further help or havenít answered your questions completely, please let us know.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
