A millennial reflection -

"Pastor James Thompson contributed to the debate about vegetarianism conducted through the letters pages of several Christian periodicals earlier this year:

'Whereas animal activists are endeavouring to actualise a coming Kingdom in which none will harm or destroy, 'Christians' appear to do no more than vainly pray for its actualisation via the Lord's prayer. Yet, still oblivious to the fact that the whole cosmos for which Christ died groans and waits in expectancy for liberation through God's children.'

"We too, believe that instead of behaving like impotent, callous robots we should all strive towards that Peaceable Kingdom. Rather than hanging around waiting for God to do it all, expecting God to put right what humans have ruined, those who protect God's innocent, defenceless animals and creation have opened their hearts, allowing their self-less compassion to blossom and God to work through them. Rendering service to all creation is God's love in action."
