The Osprey is a bird of prey. It is just like many humans who kill to eat flesh, or who have others do the killing for them. According to the Bible, this was never God's intent, for He gave all of us the plants He created for our food (Genesis 1:29-30). There was to be no death! And one day, according to the prophecy of Isaiah, all killing will cease (11:6-9).
Jesus tried to bring us back to this original peaceful, death-free living and in the prayer He gave us as an example for our lives, He told us to pray, "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." And we should know from Revelation 21:4 that there will be no death in heaven.
It's time we stop our killing of each other and our fellow animals, for we are all God's beloved creatures.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
