Our subjects cover: animals, religion (Christian, Jewish and
others); diet and lifestyle (vegan and vegetarian); and other miscellaneous
I don't know everything there is to know about Christianity believe me. Its
my belief that extending a hand of mercy to ALL those that need it, may not
be the only important thing but it does bring one closer to God/Jesus. Since
eating, though sounding so trivial, makes such a huge impact on so many
things we can't see, to not acknowledge the suffering to me is sinful. And
causing more suffering after you know what you're causing, is sinful to me.
Though the harm may not be done directly by you, by buying the product, you
are supporting it. You are voting with your money that the cruelty is ok.
It's not. The hitman is no less guilty then the one who hired the hit.
I agree that Christianity isn't based on animals but that doesn't make
them irrelevant. By being kind you are closer to God, and being kind against
your best interest is even better. But being cruel is a sin and being cruel
for your own benefit is worse. By living kind and caring about things beyond
only what we directly see and trying to change things in our own humble or
assertive way, we can't help but be closer to God. By doing negative, we get
further away from God. I can say I love God all I want but if I run outside
and chop the head off of a chicken, disregarding his/her fear and suffering,
and then sit in front of my plate to pray...I'm not seeing the blessing no
matter how much I go to church.
