Animal Gospel

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

Martin, does someone have to be a Universalist in order to share your covenant perspective regarding these animals?

I personally never saw this perspective until I became a Christian Universalist. I always mocked anything animal rights or vegetarian in nature prior to becoming a Universalist. The Hosea 2:18 and Jeremiah 31:27-28 covenant are fairly straight forward in the Scriptures. However, for a lot of very thoughtful Christians, it would be nearly impossible for them to embrace this, as it was for me, while the eternal hell issue still looms on the horizon. If some of the people that you've ever known and cared about are going to be torched forever for failing to follow a prescribed behavior from any evangelical organization that you can think of, irrespective of their sincerity, integrity, and meekness before the LORD and their fellow man, then a lot of people are going to frantically and erroneously conclude that this covenant is utter rubbish in the light of the gloomy gospel that they entertain that tells them that no matter how hard they pray and love others, that there's inevitably going to be a lot of people that you cared about that are going to be pushed away by God for all of eternity. While you might not go there, and while you may possibly be able to miraculously keep the two issues separate and distinct in your mind, there are a lot of people who emotionally would see no relevance to the animal gospel, while to them the gospel of Jesus Christ is only potentially good news to each and every creature, rather than actually being good news to each and every creature.
