The Bible and Vegetarian/Vegan Living
Comments by Frank and Mary Hoffman - 25 Nov 2007

Dear Ivor:

Thank you for writing back.

The majority of you comments seem to be based on the interpretation that God's wants us to live in a fallen world, which is not the case. Please see Living in the Will Rather than the Concessions of God: 

After you have read this commentary, I hope you will see that there are no real "odds with Scripture". There is only a separation between the heavenly and creation intent of God vs. the fallen world we live in.

There were several Jewish sects in Israel that were vegetarian, such as the Essenes, and they did not sacrifice any animals, and since there is no mention of Jesus ever eating any animal product during His incarnation on earth, it is most likely that He never ate any animals. The fish He served was already dead and He simply multiplied it and fed it to the multitude along with the bread.

We hope this helps.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
