Dear Elise: 

Language is one of the hardest things to try to get back to the original, because we no longer have any original manuscripts; they are now all copies, translations, and commented versions by various scribes over the years.

I Am IS the Lord God.

Verse 5 is just emphasizing that only man was created in the image of God and has a special standing with Him, and he is never to be considered as food.

We also need to remember that God’s creation intent and heavenly will was and remains that we should only eat plant foods. If anything, this may be a concession to sinful man to limit the killing of animals until they matured enough to return to eating only plant foods.

You’re not rambling…think about something: when a light bulb is on we have light; when you turn the light off, the darkness is only the absence of light; nothing new was created. Hot and cold are the presence or absence of heat. And, spiritually speaking the eating of animal products is the result of the absence of compassion and empathy, and perhaps the Holy Spirit.

We hope this helps.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
