Animal Rights and Anti-Vegetarian Scriptures

The vegetarian and the animal rights movements are just another attack on the authority of God and His commandments to His creation. I’m certainly not for cruelty to animals; but their version of reality and life, versus mine, are two different things. The growing population and the fact that we are stuffed into cities make modern food production a necessity. If everybody, including the animal rights advocates and vegetarians, lived in a rural setting there would be less problem with this issue. The animal rights advocates protesting confinement systems should be protesting the move of the people from the land to the city. They are the cause of the need for mass production and without it there would be less food in the market place plus the prices would be sky high.

Even though the news media “puffs” whatever agenda they (the media) endorse for whatever reason (usually anti-God), this issue would die on its own merits because everybody has to eat and most people accept meat as a blessing, which it is. The health issue is another thing that is adding to the panic, by the media driven moguls for the elimination of meat from the diet. Meat eaten in proper amounts is not a health threat. Anything you over-do can kill you.

Part of the problem with this whole issue is, that the animal rights advocates are nothing more than animal worshippers in their own right. They, according to Romans 1:25, “changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” They are trying to put animals on an equal par with humans, and in some cases, God also. Part of the blame has to, believe it or not, be put on Disney and others that have put animals into human roles, starting with Steamboat Willie (better known as Mickey Mouse) and ending with (at the present) The Little Mermaid. Bambi was a real tearjerker that makes hunters look like the worst scum in the world. The attack started many years ago and is slowly picking up steam with each generation. Not so much in great numbers, but with important people in important places that are then pushing off their beliefs onto others via the various medias. Their success is based on the silence of the knowledgeable majority.

One day I was listening to Rush Limbah describe how he killed a mouse by shaking it around in a trashcan. Either later on in the broadcast or the next day a lady called and chastised him for his cruelty. She said he should have taken it out into the back yard and released it (so it could be a continual problem). It would be kind of nice for that lady to live on the station in Australia that had millions of mice overrunning everything. They ate six inches of grain out of a silo in no time flat. Her attitude toward mice would be much different if she was in that situation. She no doubt, is a second or third generation city-dweller that grew up with Mickey Mouse. The fact that mice are cute doesn’t help matters any, but the reality is they stink and can carry diseases. It truly is one of God’s little creatures, but we are given dominion over them and not the other way around like the animal advocates are trying to promote.

The following scriptures will point out how meat is given to us by God and is to be accepted with thanksgiving, 1 Timothy 4:3.

Genesis 9:2-3

2. And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. 3. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

Genesis 18:7-8

7. And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it. 8. And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

Genesis 27:3-4,9,14,17,19,25

3. Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison; 4. And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die. 9. Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the goats; and I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth: 14. And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved. 17. And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob. 19. And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that thy soul may bless me. 25. And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son’s venison, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he brought him wine and he drank.

Exodus 12 deals with the Passover.

Leviticus 11:3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

Deuteronomy 12:15,20

15. Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy gates, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, according to the blessing of the Lord thy God which he hath given thee: the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the roebuck, and as of the hart. 20. When the Lord thy God shall enlarge thy border, as he hath promised thee, and thou shalt say, I will eat flesh, because thy soul longeth to eat flesh; thou mayest eat flesh, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after.

Job 6:6 Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
I just had to inject this one concerning salt. Salt is just about as big of boogieman as animal fat.

Proverbs 15:17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith. Better to eat vegetables and be happy, than to eat meat with strife in your house.

Isaiah 7:15,22

15. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good. 22. And it shall come to pass, for the abundance of milk that they shall give he shall eat butter: for butter and honey shall every one eat that is left in the land.

Isaiah 25:6. And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

Matthew 17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Jesus didn’t think it was cruel to use a hook for fishing and as the other scripture shows, they also ate fish.

Matthew 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

1 Corinthians 10:25-28

25. Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake: 26. For the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof. 27. If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. 28. But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof:

1 Timothy 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
Forbidding to marry hasn’t really become a problem yet but encouraging someone to live together and not be married is about the same thing. The command to abstain from meats has been well upon us for many years.

Hebrews 13:9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
Food of any kind shouldn’t give you the feeling of well-being, it should be the Holy Spirit based on your faith in God.
