Our subjects cover: animals, religion (Christian, Jewish and
others); diet and lifestyle (vegan and vegetarian); and other miscellaneous
Just to add one thing, it is important that we make our views fit the Bible,
not the opposite way around. God gave us His Word for a reason. I do not eat
meat because I believe God does not want me to. That does not mean I degrade
someone else who feels differently. God will deal with them if He needs to.
Again, I am not God. A good example is I have my nose pierced for a
spiritual reason. Years ago, I heard about the Year of Jubilee. Those who
were slaves were allowed to go free. If the person who was bound to slavery
chose to stay a willing slave, that person's ear would be pierce to show the
world that (s)he was a willing slave. I felt convicted that I needed this
type of symbol to show that I am a willing servant of Jesus Christ. So I
pierced my nose. Does this mean that everyone else will have the same
conviction? Of course not! I have Christian friends who do not celebrate
Halloween. I have Christian friends who say there is no harm.
It's all a
matter of personal conviction. I see no harm in telling others how we
believe about animals - out of love and compassion. And God is definitely a
God of love and compassion toward all creatures. There is no doubt in my
mind about that. But that does not mean that if there is a Verse in the
Bible that makes me question that I am going to disregard that Verse. God's
Word is God's Word. I may not know God's reasoning for that Verse being
there, but it has a purpose - even if it does not fit my own purpose.
I hope that makes sense. LOL
