Swords to Plowshares

Promoting a faith-based love for all creation.

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

The fruitage 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 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). We should be motivated by love in everything we do (1 Corinthians 16:14). Cruelty and love are incompatible.
