Does God Want Us To Eat Meat?
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 11 Dec 2008

Dear Ron:

Thank you for your comments.

God never commanded the killing and eating of animals for food. He only granted the concession because of the hardness of the human heart.

Also growing plant foods for human consumption takes up only a third as much land as it does to provide the same caloric value as that used to raise animals and their food.  So, there would be more land for wildlife.

Also, there is nothing in the Bible that says that God sacrificed an animal to cover Adam and Eve in skins.  He could have created them as He did everything else.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
