Know any Christians who oppose the vegan/vegetarian diet based on the line “God put them here for us”?
You may not believe in God and the bible etc, but for those who do, or if you know someone who is; you may be interested in this.
It’s been on my heart lately that I wanted to share this. As someone who believes in God, I feel that the typical “God put the animals here for us to eat” type of line is so out of touch with what the bible actually says.
I don’t feel that the fact that God had given us dominion over the animals (creation) supports the idea that it translates to “here for us to eat”. (to torture, exploit, kill, destroy etc). I feel that it means that we have been given dominion over them to look after them. To take care of creation.
Personally, I think that the true calling of a Christian is to adopt a vegan diet/lifestyle. I wish I had done it sooner.
Here’s a great link that I appreciate very much on the subject. Check it out if you’re interested.
