wat the BIBLE says bout bein VEGETARIAN
proverbs 12:10 says that a good person is kind to their animals while a mean person is cruel.

most factory farms are cruel to their animals. buying such meat and dairy supports cruelty. that is why it is wrong to BUY said meat. however, if you need the nutrients and can't afford better meat, or you can't get to better meat, or if it's just going to go bad anyway, then it's ok. but if those circumstances don't apply, then the only kind of meat or dairy that it's ok to buy is when it came from animals raised sustainably.

romans 14:15 says that if you are hurting others by the foods you eat, you are not guided by love, and not to let your appetite destroy someone Christ died for.

this seems like a reference to all the environmental problems from the meat industry. some of those problems are:

1. A 2006 united nations report called the meat industry "one of the top two or three most significant contributers to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from global to local."
2. The meat industry uses half of all water in the USA.
3. Feeding a meat eater requires 10 times more farmland than it does to feed a vegetarian.
4. About 10 billion land animals in this country alone face all types of torture and death... EACH YEAR. Compare that to about 50 million abortions in the past 40 years, and you tell me which one is more important.
5. The livestock industry has contributed 18 percent of all greenhouse gasses.
6. Decaying meat lines our intestines and makes it more difficult to properly absorb nutrients.
7. Meat is acidifying to our bodies (being too acidic causes most of the damage associated with aging, and causes cancer)

RE: wat the BIBLE says bout bein VEGETARIAN
Jesus teaches us in Matthew 15:11 that "What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean."

Jesus' words on diet restrictions seem pretty clear to me. It doesn't really matter what you eat, but what truly matters is what you speak.

proverbs 12:10 tells us to not BUY certain meats, and romans 14:15 tells us to eat only a little meat due to the pollution.

What bloody difference does it make to anything, what ancient men may or may not, think we should eat. Absolutely no mention of mastodon or mammoth.............how the hell did they miss them?

RE: wat the BIBLE says bout bein VEGETARIAN
The Romans suggestion seems good, but again, I think in the long run what Jesus said is right. Be more worried about what comes out of your mouth....maybe a good idea for kevlar.

look, folks, i think you should know that I know that there is a God. I don't just say I know, I actually know, and so I have a pretty good idea of what God wants because I've known that there is a God for quite some time. God wants me to do this, and proverbs 12:10, and romans 14:15 support eating less meat, accoding to God.
