Does God Want Us To Eat Meat?

Thank you for writing.
You're correct, the problem was with their attitude.
We need to remember that the whole Law and the sacrificial system were all part of the concession to limit the depravity of human beings that came about following the Fall. They only came about because humans failed to remain obedient to God's will.
When someone was truly repentant, the symbolic sin rising in the smoke was considered to be a pleasing aroma to God. It was not the killing or the stench of roasting an animal.
God's creation intent and heavenly will remains one of having a peaceful world for all living beings.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
