A Question Every Christian Vegetarian Might Ask Himself

Many advocates for a vegetarian diet teach that meats of all kinds are an unnatural food. They point out that before the great deluge, the world was strictly vegetarian and man reached ages beyond 900 years. These advocates stress the fact that after the flood, when meat was added to man's diet, his life expectancy immediately and drastically decreased to a little over 100 years. Christians are believing and following such teachings that appear to have biblical support.

However, these arguments for "Christian" vegetarianism are in sharp disagreement with the Bible and with sound reasoning. When Noah and his family exited the ark, God spoke to them saying, "every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb" (KJV, Genesis 9:3). If meat is unnatural and eating it is so harmful that it severs hundreds of years from the lives of those who eat it, Christian vegetarians must declare that God gave people bad advice.

If the return to vegetarianism has even a remote power to restore man to the longevity he enjoyed before the flood, why has no one, including vegetarians and vegans from birth, ever lived even a couple of hundred years?

It's also claimed that no ingredient required for health is missing from a vegetarian diet--except vitamin B12. Does God cause vitamin B12 to just miraculously appear in the bodies of Christian vegetarians? Does he just miraculously remove the need for vitamin B12 from the bodies of his servants? Any answer that even leans towards being affirmative would cause one's sanity to be questioned.

The practice of vegetarianism for short periods of time can be very beneficial to one's health. It is the life-long practice of vegetarianism by God's post-flood servants that can't be found in scripture.

There's also the need to avoid the factory farmed meats commonly found in America's grocery stores. People have been made aware of the industry's habitual use of dangerous growth hormones, antibiotics, and preservatives in factor farming. It's also long overdue for Christians to cease turning a deaf ear to the factual accounts of the horrible suffering of factory farmed animals. Animals should enjoy their lives until the day they go to a rapid slaughter that causes as little suffering as possible.

In conclusion, there's a question that every Christian vegetarian might ask himself. The twelfth chapter of the book of Exodus, verses one thru eleven, records the institution of the Passover. God instructed Israel to take a lamb without blemish (defect), a male of the first year from the sheep or goats. The lamb was to be killed and its flesh consumed. The end of verse eleven reads, "...it is the Lord's passover". Any of today's Christian vegetarians can ask themselves what it would have been like for them had they been a member of Israel during the passover. Would they have refused the passover saying, "Lord, I can't partake of your passover; I'm vegetarian."

The scripture of 1 Timothy 4:1-3 says, "now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith; speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats...."

It is God who will Exhort me and not myself. NEW
by: Anonymous

I am a born again Christian, and a year long vegetarian. Sometimes people mean well when trying to teach others about their view of vegetarian and Christ, but sometimes they do more harm then good. I have learn to seek Jesus for myself to find understanding. It is not that I don't seek the wisdom of others, it's just that it turns me off when some people talk against another in a negative way. God is love and every time I read it, hear it, (putting others view point down just to lift themselves up.) I don't discern God's love in it. It is better if someone has something to share, they should do it without putting down their negative feeling by putting down someone else view point. it just seems to me that there only doing that to build up themselves like the political people do. That always turns me off. Keep up the good work but just be mindful that even new vegetarian and Christian can discern when something is not of God, even if they don't know what it is. Thank you. His love!

Last supper.
by: Anonymous

Hi, I am curious concerning a certain point, at the last supper I see no mention of the lamb being taken only bread and wine is mentioned. Why so ? I am sutapadas@btinternet.com, should you care to inform me on this. Thank you. Namaste.
