They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea. ~Isaiah 11:9

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn't the veganism you're advocating because of this Hosea 2:18 passage simply a guise for "worshipping and serving the creation rather than the Creator," as St. Paul warned us about?

I don't see how the healing covenant [for instance] would be worshipping and serving the creation rather than the Creator. It's simply a part of the atoning work of Christ. Jesus Christ provided as much provision for our bodies as for our spirits, and perhaps a great deal more for our bodies than our spirits because on a certain level our bodies are needier than our spirits. That's not to say that our spirits weren't burdened with a great many intolerable needs when Christ reach out to each of us, but merely an observation of how much weaker our bodies are than our spirits and minds. But, standing expectantly on the New Testament for bodily healing to flow to our bodies from the High Priestly Ministry of Jesus Christ isn't an act of worshipping our bodies, but it's an act of humbling ourselves under the mighty hand of God and seeking His exaltation above this situation, along with our own in His Name, [though always in subjection to His divine majesty]. No covenant of the Scriptures is ever an act of preferring ourselves over God. And no covenant of the Scriptures is ever an act of preferring the cosmos around us over God. On the contrary, the more and more we acknowledge the covenants Paul spoke of in the plural in Ephesians 2 is to give more and more honor to God and to submit ourselves further and further to the reign of Christ!
