Jesus has gone green!

I found it ironic when I stumbled onto www.jesusveg.com . This is a website claiming that Christians ought to be vegetarians because Jesus would be apalled at the treatment of animals in factories. I really did laugh out loud as I read their article. If these people were really going to use the Bible to try validate their point, you think they’d have researched it a tad more.

Their claim: Because in the Garden of Eden God’s original intent was for humans to be vegetarians, it’s what we should be. “And God said, ‘See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also to every best of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food’; and it was so. ” ~Genesis 1:29-30

My rebuttal: “(Peter) saw Heaven opened and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth. In it were all kinds of four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things and birds of the air. And a voice came to him, ‘Rise, Peter; kill and eat.’ But Peter said, ‘Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean.’ And a voice spoke to him again the second time, ‘What God has cleansed you must not call common.” ~Acts 10: 11-15 “Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.” ~Matthew 15: 11 What about in Luke 9:10-17 when Jesus fed the multitudes fish? According to a link from the aforementioned site, fishing is bad because those hooks hurt the poor things! And let’s not forget the parable of the Prodigal son! When the boy returned after running away from home, his father killed the fatted calf. They ate beef that night!

Anyway, I think vegetarianism is a great thing. No one has to eat meat. . . but we can if we want to!
