I believe after we chose evil rather than live in Paradise with God we had to find our own food, and killing and eating an innocent animal was an innovation of the barbarians to feed themselves. In Paradise, food was everywhere without any killing to be done. And when Jesus returns the "Lion WILL lay down with the Lamb " and no more killing will again occur. Cultivating fruits, berries, nuts and vegetables takes love and care. Hunting destroys another living creature which gives evil pleasure. I believe a great deal of the bible, but I think we need to always consider the context in which it was written and by whom. What perspectives were at the time. These were hunters that wrote "God said I can eat the animals too. " Jesus taught us to seek His peace and cause no harm, share love with one another. I believe this extends to all living creatures. After all, Jesus liberated women from inside their homes to follow Him to the hills and streets, which went against the current norm. I measure any writing to the teachings of Jesus. He came to save us all....ALL God 's creatures.

Anil M. Jesus himself observed the passover feast, which had lamb as a main course. God also required the death of animals to atone for human sin. True, this wasn't a part of the perfect earth God created, but when sin entered the world, things changed. Don't make the mistake of getting caught up in the politics of animal cruelty. People, not animals, were made in God's image. Yes, we shouldn't be cruel to animals, but you can't ignore that the scriptures make it clear that we rule over them, and one of their main purposes is for food.

i dont believe a compassionate jesus would allow meat eating!This has probably been modified later by writers to justify meat eating as per their choice!
