Animals as Food
Comments by Frank and Mary Hoffman - 20 Oct 2010

Dear Kathy:

Thank you for your comments, but as a retired pastor, I (Frank) can assure you that God created all the animals to be our companions, and that both they and us were to eat only plant foods.

It was only after the Fall and Flood that God granted a concession to eat flesh, because of the hardness of the human heart, but it was never His creation nor heavenly intent.

And, as the pictures show, there is really no such thing as humane slaughter, and with few exceptions, there are no humanly raised 'food' animals. When you really come to know what is happening, there really is no difference between the killing of the dogs and the killing of the other animals.

Unfortunately, relatively few people change their ways from provoking thought, change almost always requires a persons emotions to be shocked first.

We look forward to hearing from you again.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
