A Bible scripture often quoted by Christians is “Be fruitful and
multiply….” (Genesis 1:28) In the very next verse, God tells us what
to eat: “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;” (Genesis 1:29)
Humans – with their insatiable lust for domination, cruelty, and
animal flesh/ secretions – have corrupted the earth, increasingly
causing conditions that result in starvation of other humans that they
purport to care about.
Isn’t it obvious that an increase in population that is sustainable
with a plant-based way of life cannot be sustained with animal-based
agriculture that depletes and contaminates huge areas of the planet? All
you need to do is look at the condition of the earth today to realize
what a toll human disobedience continues to exact.
Then you have professing Christians going out as missionaries to
convert others to their ways – including animal exploitation. They even
solicit donations in order to send God’s innocent creatures to poor
countries (Heifer Project), spreading their corruption around the world,
instead of helping the needy to grow crops as God intended. Isn’t this
hypocrisy? To make matters even worse, tons of grain that could be used
to feed the hungry is instead fed to animals bound for slaughter just to
feed those who are already so satiated with animal-derived products that
they suffer the results: an epidemic of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart
disease, stroke, cancer, et cetera.
This is spiritual blindness – not godliness. Jeremiah, who lived
approximately 600 years before Christ, said: (Jeremiah 5:21)
21 'Hear this, O foolish and senseless people,
Who have eyes, but see not;
Who have ears, but hear not.'
In John 14:30, Jesus mentions “the ruler of the world [Satan]” and
that “he has nothing in Me [Jesus].
Yet people who are truly “born again” are supposed to be indwelt by
the Holy Spirit of God. Then why aren’t they listening? Why do so many
choose not to follow His promptings? Are they instead listening and
following “the ruler of the world”?
