Letter From Amanda Barrett About Bullfighting and Tradition - 31 May 2004


I don't know if bull fighting is evil it is part of a heritage. I am not saying that it is bad but by calling people "evil" it is like judging people. God says not to judge people. But you are calling them evil
because they eat meat.

I am a vegetarian, but people aren't evil just because they eat what God gave them to eat. He didn't put animals on this earth not to
be eaten. I do agree that the way they slaughter the animals is cruel. But don't judge people. Let God do that. The way to go on the site is to open people's eyes on the cruelty in slaughterhouses. Just go easy on meat eaters. Stop trying to force your beliefs on them by calling them evil.

Dear Amanda:

Thank you for letter.

At one time the sacrifice of humans was cultural, too, but we have come to accept it as not proper. To enslave another person is also evil, and for a long time that was cultural, too.

The Bible teaches us that we are to even love our enemies and treat them kindly. The Bible also teaches us that we are to treat animal
compassionately, and to do otherwise shows that the person is wicked. To take pleasure in the pain, suffering, and death of another living being is evil, as are all those who participate in the bullfighting "culture". This is not being judgmental, it is being discerning.

We need to look at God's intent and beyond the earthly corruption He tolerates in our present day.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
