A popular Bible passage that’s often cited is found in Mark
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this
mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall
not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he
saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye
pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
~ King James Version
After my seventy years on this earth, and after much thought and
searching, I have come to the conclusion that there is one “mountain”
that is the source of most (if not all) of the ills and devastation
found on our planet: our arrogance and cruelty toward other beings whom
we consider “inferior.” This behavior is the opposite of what God
teaches as His original (see Genesis) as well as final (see Revelation)
intent for humans and other animals.
And yet it is this very “mountain” of evil that the vast majority of
humans blindly support every day of their lives – lives spent eating,
wearing, using in every way those whom they consider beneath them: the
other animals with whom we share this small, precarious planet.
God makes it very plain in Genesis 1:29-31 that His intent is for all
of His creatures to be vegan:
29 Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed
that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has
fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you;
30 and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and
to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given
every green plant for food "; and it was so.
31 And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
~ New American Standard Bible
In our insensitivity, brought on by constant brain-washing and lies
from childhood, we humans have given lip-service to the Creator’s words
and created our own warped, evil way of “life” which really glorifies
death in wars and slaughterhouses alike.
We try to ignore or distort His true intent for His creation and
choose instead to follow modern false prophets who promise “health and
wealth” without “works.” In reality, they are promoting a god of
self-indulgence. You don’t hear James 2:26 quoted in these venues very
often, do you?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works
is dead also.
~ King James Version
Just think about all the corruption in this world: Billions of
dollars spent on wars and “research” (the torture of innocent animals)
for “cures” of diseases originating from that very departure from God’s
original intent – a departure that has resulted in a world-wide,
unprecedented escalation of the murder of billions of innocent animals
for “food.” I call this cannibalism! And we dare to consider ourselves
superior to other animals!
If Frank and I have been able to climb out of this morass, so can
every other person.
