Christian Bowhunters of America - Is it really Christian?
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 7 May 2010

Dear Kevin:

Thank you very much for your encouraging comments about our ministry.

The issue of fish and other animals eating one another, is definitely not in God's creation or heavenly will as we have discussed before, because in His will there is no death. Neither is it a concession, for concessions only seem to have been given to humans; therefore, animals eating one another is part of this corrupted earth. However, the power of reversing this back into God's will seems to have been given, at least in part to us to correct, as we are told in Isaiah 11:6-9 and Romans 8:18-23.

As for technology, God gave us the ability to have language, education, and the inventiveness to make things, and to use His resources as proper stewards doing everything in our power to protect His earth and all who live upon it.

Immorality is really part of this fallen world. Divorce is also part of this fallen world. We are to repent of our sinful ways and sin no more, and we are also to forgive the repentant sinner. While Jesus did leave the concession of immorality in as an excuse for divorce, it is definitely not according to His will. We have ministered to a lot of people in this situation, and for those who got past it, their marriages are stronger than ever.

The unfortunate problem is that the vast majority of churches and clergy do not minister to people who care about animals. And we agree with your comments about such clergy being ashamed of themselves for not providing this much needed service. This is one of the main reasons we are concerned about your ministry, because it will hurt people that care for animals, and very likely could cause them to leave the fellowship. You may not want to tackle judgment, but you are definitely called upon to discern what is truly in God's will and what is not.

No animal flesh or by products are healthful. They all cause chronic disease problems. The only truly healthful diet is one that consists only of whole unprocessed plant foods.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
