In Reference to: Why Christians Must Not Countenance Animal Mistreatment
Thank you for writing.
The key to understand these things is to understand the difference between the creation and heavenly intent of God Vs. the concessions that He allowed because of the disobedience of human beings and their hardness of heart.
There was no death in Eden before the Fall, and there is no death in heaven. Death only occurs in this fallen earth.
If you look at our animal exploitation, you will see the horrible things that humans do to animals, all of which is ungodly. http://www.all-creatures.org/anex/
And since over 95% of all commercial animal products sold in our markets are from these places, the very purchase of these items contributes to the ungodly cruelty. This is why we take the stand we do.
Unfortunately, you see to be trying to deny these obvious truths, and find ways to try to justify the eating of flesh. We hope this is not the case.
To answer your biblical comments and read more please take a look at our Bible section. http://www.all-creatures.org/bible.html
We hope this helps.
In the Love of the Lord,
