The Bible and Vegetarian/Vegan Living
Comments by Scott Perry - 6 Jun 2008

I have a very important question for you because I have read your work on why Christians should become vegetarians and now I am faced with a question that I cannot answer. You have written that

"The condition of eating of meat, or for that matter, the killing of any living creature, was not God's "original intent". The first killing occurred after the Fall. Is there also something very special in the creation of both man and animals that we don't usually see or perhaps accept?"

I love this "original intent" idea, but people have asked me, "What does it matter if that was God's original intent? Shouldn't we be concentrating on emulating Christ and not looking back on how the world used to be?" I don't know how to answer this. Can you help me? Is there a biblical passage that advises us to live our lives how God originally intended? Thanks in advance for all your help.
