QUOTE FOR THIS POST

differ."

WHAT'S ON MY MIND TODAY

**My son Michael and his wife Erin live in Omaha, Nebraska where producing 

plants that slaughter beef cows are numerous. On my visits initially, I can 

remember the stockyards where beef cattle waited not knowing their fate. 

Since then the beef cows are trucked in to an off loading platform. They are then 

shot in the "head with a captive-bolt gun meant to stun them. But because the 

lines move so quickly and many workers are poorly trained, the technique often 

fails to render the animals insensible to pain."

farming/cows/cow-transport-slaughter/.

I remember standing outside the fence listening to the life ending wails of the 

cattle and hoping to not ever hear this call for continued life of this animal 

again.

I read a book a long time ago where cattle were loaded on boxcars for their 

trip to the electrocution chamber. One cow escaped and managed to return to 

the herd warning others about their potential demise.

From https://www.openbible.info/topics/eating_meat:

Genesis 9:3 ESV

"Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green 

plants, I give you everything."

Romans 14:1-23 ESV 

"As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over 

opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats 

only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let 

not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has 

welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is 

before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord 

is able to make him stand. One person esteems one day as better than another, 

while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his 

own mind...."

Leviticus 11:1-47 ESV

"And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying to them, “Speak to the people of 

Israel, saying, These are the living things that you may eat among all the animals 

that are on the earth. Whatever parts the hoof and is cloven-footed and chews 

the cud, among the animals, you may eat. Nevertheless, among those that chew 

the cud or part the hoof, you shall not eat these: The camel, because it chews the 

cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you. And the rock badger, because it 

chews the cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you...."

1 Corinthians 8:8 ESV

"Food will not commend us to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no 

better off if we do."

I work out in the yard and flower beds during the spring, summer and fall. I've 

never seen a tear from a plant that I've trimmed, dug up or when mowing grass.

God accuses a vegetarian for being a wimp and cares less for the murdering of 

food animals. Do I obey God and eat animals for food. No, I will not. I remain a 

wimp and eat vegetables and fruit, I see no tears from either of them.
