Easter Statement - 2005

SPREAD THE WORD!

The Christian Vegetarian Association is an international, nondenominational ministry of Christians who encourage a plant-based diet because it benefits human health, the environment, the world's poor and hungry, and animals. At this Easter season, the Christian Vegetarian Association (CVA) calls on Christians to help realize the mission of the Risen Christ by choosing plant-based diets that honor God and Godís Creation.

With the Resurrection, Christians are called to be new creations in Christ. This means leaving behind our habitual desires to indulge our tastes and, instead, choosing to lead Christ-centered lives. Choosing a diet that avoids harming Godís creatures not only protects the environment, helps alleviate world hunger, and is good for our God-given bodies, it is also an expression of faithful living.

We agree with the above statement and encourage a return to the diet we were created to have--a plant-based diet (Genesis 1:29-31). As followers of Christ (the Prince of Peace), we believe that our dietary choices are important in our walk with God.

We also discourage the buying of eggs since this supports the starvation and the horrific lives laying hens live crammed together in small battery cages. Unwanted chicks are also tossed onto piles of other live chicks (or even tossed into wood-shredders). Billions of poultry suffer and are legally inhumanely killed in slaughterhouses. This is contrary to the celebration of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Lamb of God. God cares about every one of His creatures including cows, chicks, bunnies and pigs. If we are God's children, we should also care about them and celebrate life without contributing to the suffering and death of God's creatures.

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
