Man's Divine Right?
Dominion Over Animals
"God put animals here for us to use; the Bible gives us dominion over animals."
Dominion is not the same as tyranny. The Queen of England has "dominion" over her subjects, but that doesn't mean she can eat them, wear them, or experiment on them.
If we have dominion over animals, surely it is to protect them, not to use them for our own ends.
There is nothing in the Bible that would justify our modern-day policies and programs that desecrate the environment, destroy entire species of wildlife, and inflict torment and death on billions of animals every year.
The Bible imparts a reverence for life; a loving God could not help but be appalled at the way animals are being treated.
