Re: Abuse of Children and Animals - 17 Feb 2006

By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 25 Apr 2016

Dear Benjamin:

Thank you very much for writing, and for telling us a little about your background.

For the most part we agree with your understanding of the pre-Flood period, except there is some indication that people from the time of Abel and further genealogy that some people herded animals, which could indicate that some people ate animal products against Godís creation intent and heavenly will.

Actually, there seems to have been plants already growing after the flood waters began to recede. Do you remember that Noah sent out a dove and it came back with a leafy branch? Furthermore, there were not enough animal to feed everyone, and the grazing animals would have had to eat the grass in the dry land. Please take a look at two of our commentaries:

http://www.all-creatures.org/discuss/gen9.1-4-flh.html

And we agree that diet played a large part in the decline of human longevity and sickness.

We hope this helps bring out some other factors to consider, and we look forward to hearing back from you.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
