Animals as Food
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 29 Jan 2013

Dear Delaina:

Thank you for writing.

We didn’t see any specific reference to anything on our web site; however, you referenced verses fail to include Genesis 1:29-31, and that God’s creation and heavenly will is that there be no suffering or death, and Jesus tells us to be perfect and live by our heavenly Father’s will.

In order to mistreat animals and kill them, humans must first harden their hearts so as to no longer have empathy for those animals, which is totally opposed to God’s desire. He wants us all to have a soft heart.

Furthermore there is a big difference between the condemning judgment of God and God’s instructions to us to discern evil in the world around us so that we can avoid it. The latter is the focus of some of our writings.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
