Its not just humans. Look at all the species murdering and eating each other. From an enlightened perspective, this is absolutely crazy and totally shocking. It is not the divine order. The prophets said that one day in the new heavens and new earth the sheep will lay down with the wolf peacefully. That is how they are supposed to be. The truth is that all predators and carnivores are intrinsically evil. Vegetarianism is taught by all the highest spiritual traditions: Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Essenes, Nazarenes, Christian monasticism. etc. Please, stop eating flesh!

Really, you are not very good at what you do.

Spend about 10 more years studying good trolls and practicing, then use your ostensibly different IP and create a new username and come back and be a useful force here.

After the resurrection the disciples went back to being fishermen for a time. I have always lamented this, as I do not like fish. I prefer chicken, pig, or cow. Perhaps that is because I am an American. If I lived in an exotic locale in SE Asia would I consider chilled monkey brains a delicacy? I don't know...

Well I'd make a horrible eastern religious ascetic because there is no way that I am ever giving up meat. I love cows; they taste pretty good over a grill with seasoning and sometimes BBQ sauce depending on the mood.

The Acts of the Apostles were written by Luke who was the personal secretary of Saul of Tarsus. In reality, its all mostly about Saul and not the other Apostles. I do not trust what that book says about the Holy Rock Simon bar Jonas.

Now you sound like one of those Protestants who only quote the Pauline epistles, usually Romans, but ignore everything else from the other apostles and think that the epistle of St. James is bogus and stuff etc.

OK, do you command your followers to roll around in the mud like pigs when you show up in your Rolls-Royce since you have discredited any other Essene Reverends post your great apostasy?

I see why you left ROCOR and became a leader among the Essene based groups; you prefer to be your own Priest and pontificate.

If this is the case, then why do we even bother eating at all? Plants are life too! Who says that fauna is more important than flora? Let's just starve ourselves of anything so that the flora can flourish. But wait, the flora need photosynthesis and chemical energy to survive! Who says that flora is more important than microscopic particles from the sun and chemicals? The plants should not feed either! Let's all die!

MMMM Pork. You know in the Old Law, the Jews were forbidden from eating pork. Now the Lord has declared it clean. I have always said that God became man that man might be allowed to eat carne adovada. Smiley

Its not just humans. Look at all the species murdering and eating each other. From an enlightened perspective, this is absolutely crazy and totally shocking. It is not the divine order. The prophets said that one day in the new heavens and new earth the sheep will lay down with the wolf peacefully. That is how they are supposed to be. The truth is that all predators and carnivores are intrinsically evil. Vegetarianism is taught by all the highest spiritual traditions: Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Essenes, Nazarenes, Christian monasticism. etc. Please, stop eating flesh!

hmm.. was the above plea to the other species or to humans?

if it is for all of us both humans and the animals, you seem to answer your own question... that one day in the new heaven and new earth.....

so perhaps we can wait for that.... in the mean time... the Messiah has taught that what defiles man is what comes out of his mouth out of the fullness of his heart, not what goes into the mouth. perhaps it might be a good idea if we can meditate on what he meant, and avoid pride and its broods.

I have always said that God became man that man might be allowed to eat carne adovada. Smiley

Perhaps, but not on Wednesdays and Fridays!  Angry

The troll has triumphed and caused me to look at my meatless meal with great disdain.

You want to talk evil planets, there's Mars. The bad guys in the movies were always Martians.

If this is the case, then why do we even bother eating at all? Plants are life too! Who says that fauna is more important than flora? Let's just starve ourselves of anything so that the flora can flourish. But wait, the flora need photosynthesis and chemical energy to survive! Who says that flora is more important than microscopic particles from the sun and chemicals? The plants should not feed either! Let's all die!
Plants love to eat meat



awesome!!!

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
