Does God Want Us To Eat Meat?
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 25 Aug 2012

Dear Mike:

Thank you for your comments and questions.

Unfortunately, the Bible doesn't answer every question, such as yours, for there is no mention of how or when the carnivorous animals came into being, but it was definitely after the Fall. We also know that in Noah's day there were no carnivores on the ark.

The important fact to remember is that in Isaiah 11:6-9 that all of the carnivore animals will once again return to being herbivores. It also tells us that this will come about when the earth in once again is filled with the knowledge of the Lord, so the problems seems to be laid at the feet of humans, which also ties into living in the heavenly will of God.

We hope this helps.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
