Swords to Plowshares

Promoting a faith-based love for all creation.

Is it possible to live according to the spirit while needlessly consuming animal flesh and committing similar acts of cruelty toward animals?

The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). It is impossible to exhibit these fruits while needlessly slaughtering an animal, just as it is impossible to drain all the blood out of an animal’s flesh before consuming it (Genesis 9:4).

I recommend reading Dominion vs Tyranny in Genesis and other articles on this website. The message is simple: God is love (1 John 4:8;16) and we should be motivated by love in everything we do (1 Corinthians 16:14). Cruelty and love are incompatible.
