Letter from Angel Trying to Justify Eating Animals - 15 Nov 2009

If God created the world for the use of humans, then what is wrong with eating meat (animals)? Jesus ate meat during his time and there was nothing wrong with it.

The propaganda you guys do is full hypocrisy I believe you should stop talking about the "word of God" if you don't know much about it. For thousands of years, humanity has lived and survived thanks to the consumption of farm products. If your propaganda was so true, then these billions of people who have roamed the Earth and consumed farm products have gone to hell? Think about that.

You guys are hypocrites and just make these assumptions to fundraise and make money. It's all about the money. I can't believe you use religion to justify your assumptions.

Dear Angel

Thank you for writing and for your questions.

Actually, God created the heavens and the earth, because He wanted to. He created humans to take care of His creation, and not to contribute to the corruption that has befallen the earth. Remember, there was no death in Eden and there is no death in heaven. Furthermore, the Lord tells us to pray from our Father's heavenly will to be done on earth as it is in heaven, and to be prefect as our Father in heaven is perfect. These are just a few of the reasons why we shouldn't torture and kill animals for food.

Also remember that plant foods are also grown on farms.

So, if there is any propaganda around, it is coming from the farmed animal industry. And your correct, their exploitation of animals is all about money. They lack all compassion.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
