Lisa Ervin said it beautifully:
It’s clear from scripture that God created a vegan world (Genesis 1:29-30) and Hosea and Isaiah state there will be no violence in His future peaceable kingdom (Isaiah 11:9). God made a covenant with animals that they will one day live in safety, without fear (Hosea 2:18). So clearly, nonviolence towards animals is God’s desire. Animals were created for their own purpose and for God’s glory (Psalm 150:6, Revelation 5:13). Why, as God’s children, should we perpetuate unnecessary violence towards animals?
