Now i know what some people are going to say about my doctrine. Some people are going to say it’s false because Paul said this, or James said that. However, we have to discern between what James said and what Jesus said. Because what Paul said is the word of Paul. What John said is the word of John. ONly what Jesus said is the word of God. Only Jesus can tell us how to go to Heaven. Men cannot do that. We only want to know the doctrine of Jesus, not of men. That’s when error gets introduced, listening to the doctrine of men. And so we have to discern, is that the word of God, or is that the word of Moses? Is that the word of Jesus, or did John say that? Are we teaching the doctrine Jesus taught, or the traditions of men? That’s what disciples do. They discern.
Someone told me long ago that it is not a crime to be poor. Now i also understand that it is not a sin to be human. I mentioned that God did not create a bunch of senseless laws. In fact, God made His Law so simple, it comes down to one, new commandment – Love one another. Everything comes down to one commandment for people to follow.
Still however, people should not eat meat. God mentions this three times in the first 9 chapters of the Bible. Genesis 1, verses 29, 30; Genesis 6, verse 21; and Genesis 9 verse 3-6. This is a very important commandment, as important as being fruitful and multiplying. Remember, animals are our neighbors too. We should love our neighbors as ourselves. After all, God does. God blessed all His animals, and we shouldn’t go around killing them.
Genesis Chapter 1
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
This commandment not to kill animals is given to us by God in Genesis, it’s verified to us in Proverbs 6 by our Heavenly Mother not to shed innocent blood, and it’s also verified by Jesus who taught us “Love our neighbors as ourselves”. If you’re going to kill and eat God’s animals that He blessed, and told them to be fruitful and multiply and fill the EArth, then you are not going to find favor with God. No, He’s probably going to kill you, instead.
Genesis Chapter 9
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. 4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. 5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. 6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
