God of predation

 

Many people, even Christians think vegetarianism or veganism is the way to live. They have the moral “high ground.” Not so!  In Genesis 9:3 God states,” Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.” Psalm 104 also relates how God provides grass for the grazers, cereals for man and meat (other animals and /or fruit) for the predators! He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;” and “The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.”(v 14). He even feeds the whales, “leviathan” who plays in the ocean (vv26-27). All life depends on his provision.  Paul addresses “food fads” in Romans 14 where he states that the brother who eats no meat is weaker but nevertheless is not to be despised but accepted because both his scruples and your freedom to eat what you want, are based on your respective weak and stronger faith, but you are brothers!
