Jesus and Fishing

Comments by Frank and Mary Hoffman - 25 Mar 2006

Dear James:

Thank you for writing and for your comments and questions.

To begin with, according to the Bible, Jesus never ate fish or went fishing during the entire time of his incarnation on earth. Nor for that matter, did he kill or eat any other animals.

No human being has any need to eat any animal products, without exception. But, the act of eating flesh is not a sin, because it is part of a concession from God.


However, to cause pain and suffering is a sin, and since over 95% of all animal products come for tortured and abused animals, its makes it a sin to eat those products, because the money paid for these products causes more sufferings and the purchaser a contributor to the sin.

The quote you asked about is ours.

You really need to do some more studying about Paul's discussions over eating flesh. They have nothing to do with your conclusions, but the about the disputes between Jewish Christians and Gentile Christians over meat sacrificed to idols.

Also, please take a look at our Bible and Discussion sections and look at the commentaries on the Genesis 9 and other passages you reference.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
