Dear Pat:

It’s so nice to hear from you again. We added you back on to the veg-Christian list, and you should have already received your welcome notice.

A lot of the problem you are encountering with the Bible has to do with “political” translations that try to hide the fact that God refers to both humans and all other animals as “living souls”. He makes no distinction between them other than that humans were created in the image of God, but with the fall and our sinful nature, we have lost that image, which we regain with our salvation and resurrection into heaven when we once again become sinless.

The other problem is that we need to separate the creation and heavenly will of God from the corrupt and evil ways of this world. Everything God directs about the fallen world, such as the verses you quoted from Genesis 9 has to do with limiting the evil in the world in the hopes that people would repent and return to God.

We’d love to chat with you about this. Is there a good time to call? Do you want us to use the Princeton number or call on a different number?

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
