Christian Bowhunters of America
Is it really Christian?
Comment by Frank and Mary Hoffman - 7 Mar 2005

Dear Jim:

Thank you for writing.

The "art of hunting" can be even more challenging with a camera, and no one dies, and the best thing of all, you can get to know the animals and take their pictures over and over again.

There is something very interesting about all the food laws, they all deal with animal flesh and by-products. The original plant based diet was and always will be Kosher, so those who never ate flesh were never under that portion of the Law.

The Law also provides for treating animals with compassion, and today there is no compassion; there is only pain and suffering. This is not something to be thankful for, nor is it what God provided. What we have today comes from greedy human beings.

The meaning of dominion, as you most likely know, is stewardship, and not domination.

As a fellow pastor, I find it strange that you seek "hard" parts of the the Bibles rather than the loving, compassionate, peacemaking examples we are encouraged to follow.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
