I understand that Scripture can be confusing and contradictory. That’s why we can’t just take every word for exact wording. Due to translations, and also due to men changing God’s Word in the Holy Scripture. We have to study, and be sure exactly what we need to do to get into Heaven, and then do it. I know from my own previous experience that when Scripture is confusing, people will try to interpret the verses to match their own personal opinion, not necessarily what is the truth. One argument you might hear is people saying that there are a lot of references in the Bible about eating flesh, and so the people try to reason away that it’s therefore “OK” to eat flesh. These people reason this way because they want Scripture to support their own beliefs. I know this is true, because by using logic we can prove that God never said it was OK to eat flesh. God said He will kill man for killing animals. We can prove this is true, by using logic and Scripture. First of all, Jesus tells us “His Word will never pass away”.
St. Matthew Chapter 24
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words
shall not pass away.
When God commands man not to eat flesh in Genesis, this Word will never pass away. In other words, a few lines after God’s commandment not to eat flesh, you can’t just say “Now it’s ok to eat flesh”, because God’s Word will never change. Never. You have to be able to understand this. When God says something, He means it. If God didn’t keep His Promises, we could never be saved. That’s why we get one Bible, and it never changes. It will never change. If God’s Word changed, then we’d have to get additions and addendums to the Scripture, and constantly update the changes. But God’s word will never change, not in Eternity. So you can’t “reason away” that after GEnesis, somehow God “changed His word” and made it OK to eat flesh. That will never happen. God’s word can never change, and it can never contradict what Jesus says, or the HOly Spirit.
Jesus tells us that every single part of the Law must be fulfilled.
St. Matthew Chapter 5
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth
pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from
the law, till all be fulfilled.
Therefore we know that every sentence of the Law must be fulfilled, and it will.
Genesis Chapter 9
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for
you; even as the green herb have I given you all
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.
This will not be changed, not for Eternity. Every sentence of the Law that God spoke must be fulfilled, otherwise God would have changed His word, or told a lie, and that can never happen. Everything that God said must, and will be fulfilled. So we have proven with logic that it is against God’s commandment to eat flesh, and that will never change. Some people will still try to argue with logic, or common sense. People who argue with common sense don’t have any common sense. People who don’t have any common sense are generally known as “fools”. There are still some people who will argue with the Truth. Some people wouldn’t know the Truth if it was staring them in the Face.
In Scripture, it is said that if it is difficult for us Christians to be saved, what hope is there for the non-believers? Now i understand, there is no hope for non-believers. None. They are all going to be destroyed. They have no hope whatsoever, and that is why we don’t waste any time worrying about the non-believers. Our main concern is the fifty percent of Christians who are foolish virgins and get left behind. God is going to destroy the Christians who don’t keep all His commandments. Do you think God is not capable of doing such a thing? Jesus tells us that even Christians who are drunk and abusive on the day Jesus shows up will be cast away with the unbelievers.
St. Luke Chapter 12
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord
delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the
menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and
to be drunken;
46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when
he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is
not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will
appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
We are saved by being righteous, and the disobedient will not be saved. I am beginning to believe that many of the disobedient and sinners are just simply incapable of understanding.
