Animal Cruelty Is A Sin

By David J. Stewart | May 2007 | updated May 2014

Proverb 12:10, “A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”

I have always loved animals... they're so tasty! Seriously, I love animals. Animals have a soul, which many people do not realize. Of course, animals do NOT have a spirit, which us humans DO have. The soul is composed of 3 elements: a MIND to think, a Heart to feel emotions, and a WILL to decide. Animals, just as humans, posses these characteristics. Animals can become sad, and depressed, if mistreated. 

Likewise, animals are happy and content when we respect them as creatures of God's divine handiwork and omnipotence. Animals do not have a sin-nature, as humans do. We have a moral compass, i.e., a conscience about sin, that animals do not have.

I don't like mean people and can't think of anything more cruel and heartless, than to deliberately hurt an animal. God gave us pets to love and comfort us. No one should ever hurt or be mean to an animal for sport or recreation. Such people are spiritual sick, and need to find the love of God.

The Bible teaches respect for animals and life. In the law of Moses, God forbade anyone from harming birds in a nest if it was in their way. Isn't God wonderful...

Deuteronomy 22:6-7, “If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way in any tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam [mother] sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam [mother] with the young. But thou shalt in any wise let the dam [mother] go, and take the young to thee; that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days.”

God is a bird watcher! There is some speculation as to exactly what God meant by these Scriptures, but one thing is abundantly clear, and that is, God wanted the birds taken care of and not mistreated in any way.

When I read this Scripture passage I immediately thought about pregnant fish, and how they are often released to give birth to more fish. It very likely could be that God wanted the mother bird to be able to reproduce again, and demanded that she be released into the wild. I think that makes the most sense, but I am not sure. Whether that's what this passage means or not, it is certainly the ethical (right) thing to do to respect motherhood, whether it be human or animal.

I do think that is what this Scripture is teaching, respect for reproduction in life. Look at all the endangered species in the world today, and how many birds and animals are extinct. It would certainly make sense that God, who cared to preserve His creation through the flood of Genesis Chapter 6, would be concerned about preservation of the species.

PETA is Ridiculous on Animal Rights!

I am against PETA (People for the Ethical treatment of Animals... or People Eating Tasty Animals) elevating animal rights to the status of human rights, to where they say we shouldn't even eat animals or use them for clothing...

"People who support animal rights believe that animals are not ours to use for food, clothing, entertainment, experimentation, or any other purpose and that animals deserve consideration of their best interests..."

SOURCE: http://www.peta.org/about/faq.asp

Now that's crazy folks. The Word of God plainly states in Genesis 9:3... "Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things."  It was God who killed the first animals to make "coats of skins" for Adam and Eve to wear... "Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them." Biblically, it is perfectly acceptable to kill animals for food and clothing. As to how they are killed, that is a different story altogether. 

I believe animals should be killed as painlessly and quickly as possible. If that means a crossbow or a hunting rifle, then so be it. Biblically, animals have no right to life if humans need them for food and clothing. Of course, I do believe that greedy poachers, who don't care if they wipe out an endangered species, should be arrested and brought to trial. We must respect what God has given to us.
 

PLAYING GOD WITH SCIENCE - BEWARE OF MAD SCIENTISTS!

Biblically, God said that every living thing would reproduce "after his kind" (Genesis 1:11,12). For modern scientists to tamper with the DNA of living organisms, combing them, and producing mutant species is dangerous. Scientists have already produced spider-goats, silk moth potatoes, glow-in-the-dark pigs, cows with human organs, et cetera. Mankind cannot play God without consequences!

How far will God allow men to go in their never-ended, disturbing, insatiable, thirst for destruction? The Bible teaches that God created the universe in His wisdom (Psalm 136:5) to reproduce “AFTER HIS KIND” and “AFTER THEIR KIND” (Genesis 1:21,24); but mad scientists are creating genetically modified mutants that reproduce AFTER ANOTHER KIND!!!

As with all the horror movies produced over the past 60 years... things always start off well, but then turn to disaster. It is ironic that men seem to know they're playing God with nature, yet curiosity and lust for money and power cause them to cast caution and morality to the wind.

Psalm 136:5, “To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.” Proverb 3:19, “The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.”

In January of 2011 mad scientists release 6,000 genetically modified mosquitoes into Malaysia in an attempt to combat dengue fever. Certainly, it is admirable that scientists want to cure diseases and do good with science; but to violate the laws of nature by tampering with DNA, changing the God-given genetic structure of life forms is to play God and risk unforeseen consequences. The law of cause and effect (and hundreds of other universal laws) tell us that it's just a matter of time before mad scientists go too far and open a Pandora's box that cannot be closed. God created the universe in His wisdom. Think about that.

And now scientists have insanely produced horrific giant monster ants with giant heads and killer claws!!! Where will this insatiable infatuation with playing God end? ~by David J. Stewart

The Coming Genetics Nightmare!

PETA Does Good to Expose Animal Abuse

I've included the following information below from PETA, because I think it's something that people need to be aware of; HOWEVER, I don't endorse PETA because of their unbiblical view of animal rights. The Bible allows us to KILL animals for human consumption and clothing. 1st Timothy 4:1-3 exposes PETA's prohibition to eat meat as a doctrine (teaching) of devils, just like Roman Catholics forbid eating anything other than fish on Fridays. This is demonic teaching.

By the way, hunting is perfectly acceptable and Biblical. I think every boy should learn to hunt and shoot a bear, a deer and other animals which God has given us for clothing, food, rugs, handbags, shoes and other uses. Every boy ought to learn how to gut a dear and skin the hide, preparing the meat to be frozen in storage or sun-dried to eat. The Boy Scouts used to be a wonderful organization for young men, BUT BEWARE, homosexuals are now permitted into the group and you couldn't pay me to enroll my child into such a sickening group as THE BOY SCOUTS anymore. Homosexuals are always scouting for boys, plainly evidenced by their Godless magazine and group called NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association). Homosexuality is abnormal, sickening, immoral, and brings the eternal judgment of God!!!

So let's get our priorities straight here my dear reader, lest there be any misunderstanding—I'm all for saving, properly treating and protecting the animals, but the moral development, and physical, emotional and spiritual safety of even ONE CHILD is not even to be compared to all the animals in the world!!!

PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals) recognizes animals as being equal in every way, having the same rights, as human beings. That is insane!!! Animals have no rights except that they belong to God and we should respect them as living creatures, humanely killing them in order TO HAVE A STEAK DINNER! I love PETA... People Eating Tasty Animals! So don't get the wrong idea, I'm a red-meat lover and I like to hear the “moo” in my steak when it's cooked (that is, I like my steaks medium-rare... VERY RARE!).

It's a shame that African American children by the millions grow up in ghetto slums, murdering each other in a drug-infested society deliberately created by the criminal global elite. The CIA is an anti-American organization, started and controlled by the Nazi, fascist, New World Order gang for the primary, if not sole, purpose of overthrowing the United States. Do your homework and form your own conclusions. America's prisons are a multi-billion dollar business!

Biblically, we can eat red meat every day of our life if we desire, although that would be unwise from a healthy perspective. Americans eat 20-times more red meat than recommended, which is why we have so much bodily diseases like gout (a painful foot disease) and diabetes in the United States. There are over 80,000 known chemicals and hazardous substances in our U.S. foods and household bodily products, which has caused incidents of cancer to skyrocket.

The aluminum in shampoos, deodorants and baking products has caused the rate of Alzheimer's disease to skyrocket. Aluminum accumulates in the brain-blood barrier. Calcium can help rid your body of aluminum; but ceasing from using aluminum products is best, which is difficult because the natural products available don't work as well. We live in a toxic society like you wouldn't believe if you look into the matter! The fluoride in our water is more toxic than lead! Read up on it and you'll see!

I DO however think that PETA is sincere in exposing the abuse of animals in the greedy livestock industry, and some of the things in this video are very disturbing. The average American eats 20-times more red meat than necessary, which explains the abnormally high rate of diabetes, heart-attacks, and other diet related health problems in the United States. 

I am not a vegetarian, nor do I believe that the Bible encourages anyone to be; HOWEVER, there is certainly nothing wrong with reducing the amount of red meat which we eat, or in becoming a vegetarian for better health. By the way, fresh farm raised meats are available from organic grocery stores, where the animals were raised in a healthy and natural environment. Of course, such meats cost considerably more. You decide. I love organic foods because I know they haven't been tampered with!

Guess what's coming to dinner?


Isaiah 13:11, “And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.”


Cruelty to Animals: Mechanized Madness

The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories. On today's factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy windowless sheds, wire cages, gestation crates, and other confinement systems. These animals will never raise their families, root in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural to them. They won't even feel the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter.

Animals on today's factory farms have no legal protection from cruelty that would be illegal if it were inflicted on dogs or cats: neglect, mutilation, genetic manipulation, and drug regimens that cause chronic pain and crippling, transport through all weather extremes, and gruesome and violent slaughter. Yet farmed animals are no less intelligent or capable of feeling pain than are the dogs and cats we cherish as companions.

The factory farming system of modern agriculture strives to maximize output while minimizing costs. Cows, calves, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, and other animals are kept in small cages, in jam-packed sheds, or on filthy feedlots, often with so little space that they can't even turn around or lie down comfortably. They are deprived of exercise so that all their bodies' energy goes toward producing flesh, eggs, or milk for human consumption. The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die. Industry journal National Hog Farmer explains, "Crowding Pigs Pays," and egg-industry expert Bernard Rollins writes that "chickens are cheap; cages are expensive."

They are fed drugs to fatten them faster and to keep them alive in conditions that would otherwise kill them, and they are genetically altered to grow faster or to produce much more milk or eggs than they would naturally. Many animals become crippled under their own weight and die within inches of water and food.

While the suffering of all animals on factory farms is similar, each type of farmed animal faces different types of cruelty.

When they have finally grown large enough, animals raised for food are crowded onto trucks and transported over many miles through all weather extremes to the slaughterhouse. Those who survive this nightmarish journey will have their throats slit, often while they are still fully conscious. Many are still conscious when they are plunged into the scalding water of the defeathering or hair-removal tanks or while their bodies are being skinned or hacked apart.

The Earth Is The Lord's And The Fulness Thereof!

Psalms 50:1012, “For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.” (see also 1st Corinthians 10:26)

       Every animal upon the earth belongs to God, which should cause us to be respectful of all life. God is an environmentalists, but not the fraudulent scam of Global Warming. God even cared about a little nest of birds in the Old Testament. God doesn't approve of men killing animals for sport and then leaving the carcass to rot, wasting life recklessly.

Yet, 1st Timothy 4:1-3 warns about false prophets who teach doctrines of devils, forbidding to eat meat and forbidding to get married. The Roman Catholic Church's celibacy rules are satanic, a doctrine of demons. It is acceptable to kill animals for food, and to eat meat, and make clothing from their skins. However, I believe that we have to protect certain species, like seals (mink coats), Elephants (ivory tusks) and rhinoceroses (ivory tusks), and other animals and sea creatures (like whales), when men recklessly come near killing them all for greedy commercial production. Man is his own worst enemy.

ABOVE: Children Play in the Polluted Yamuna River in India

The US government is wasting unbelievable amounts of money on nonsense (like the $600,000 spent to study the sex-habits of squirrels). It is appalling to learn where our government spends a lot of OUR MONEY. Isn't it ironic that mankind will put men on the moon and robots on Mars, but won't feed starving children here on earth. 

Above and Below: The polluted Citarum River in India

The Citarum River is so polluted in India from decades of waste dumping and abuse by industry. Families rely upon the river for drinking water, cooking, bathing and life. Local sewage is dumped directly into the river. The same is true of the Yamuna River in India. The fish are dying in record numbers...

Is it nothing to you all ye that pass by? Look how men abuse God's creation to make profits without accountability. Greedy corporations are not held accountable for waste dumping, pouring toxic chemicals into the world's rivers and lakes. Albeit, it's not just the large companies of the industrialized world. Individual people litter as much as the corporations. I can't believe how selfish and irresponsible so many people are. I see them tossing garbage out their car window. I've seen thousands of beer cans tossed along beaches and even household garbage dumped along th roadside.

God hates when men destroy the earth, whether it be dumping their plastic debris by the billions into the oceans, detonating test nuclear bombs by the thousands on and above the earth, reckless deforestation, dumping toxic waste into the rivers and lands, et cetera. Revelation 11:18, “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”

Likewise, PETA'S prohibition to kill animals and eat their meat is a doctrine of devils, exposed in the Bible. Don't become a nut by

Psalms 50:1012, “For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.” (see also 1st Corinthians 10:26)


Fairness to Animals and Humane Treatment

Proverb 12:10 states... "A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel." This Scripture refers specifically to animals which are made to perform work. It's ok to use animals to plow fields or perform work, but not in an abusive fashion. I was recently watching the History Channel, and they said that horses have been known to jump off cliffs, to commit suicide, if torturously worked to the point of misery. This is brutality, and such horse owners should be held liable for cruelty to animals. 

Again, the Bible does not prohibit meat or clothing from animals. Animal right's activists have gone way overboard, even demanding that people be charged with first-degree murder for killing animals. Americans especially, have gone insane with animal care. It is not uncommon nowadays for wealthy people to leave their entire estate to the their pet. Pet massage parlor's are popping up all over America. 

While 18,000 children starve to death EVERY DAY, Americans continue to spoil their animals. This year, total pet-related sales in the United States are projected to be $31 billion. An estimated $5 billion worth of holiday season gifts were offered – not to the poor – but to the roving family pets.

Environmental laws and animal rights must NEVER come before human life and necessity. At the same time, we need to respect God's creation and be sensible in our consumption of the earth's resources. If we deforest a jungle, we should plant another one. If we raise milk cattle, we should do so appropriately.

The Bible teaches FAIRNESS to animals in 1st Timothy 5:18... "For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward." If an animal performs work, it should be rewarded for his labor, and well treated. This is Biblical. 

In Luke 12:6 we learn that animals are very important to God, and He keeps track of every one of them... "Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?" God sees every abused animal, and no tyrant will go unpunished.

I couldn't believe how cows are abused in the milk business. Please read, GOT PUS? Cows are injected with Monsanto's Bovine-Growth-Hormone (BGH), which causes the cows to produce 10 times their normal milk output, and PUS! To counter the near-emergency medical state of the cows, the animals are pumped full of antibiotics to kill all the pus.  Yummy! This is animal abuse!


I agree with Paul McCartney on the issue of being kind to animals...

“You can judge a man's true character by the way he treats his fellow animals.” ― Paul McCartney

I think there is much truth to this statement. Albeit, when a person refuses to eat red meat and chooses to remain a vegetarian like Paul McCartney for the sake of not hurting animals, that is taking the matter too far (Paul says he can now drive by a field of animals and have a clear conscience). May I kindly say, that's insane! The Bible says that God gave us animals for food and clothing, to be received with thanksgiving (See Acts 10:13 and 1st Timothy 4:4).

I am 100% against torturing, frightening or abusing animals in any manner. There are safe and proper ways to kill an animal, but food companies don't want to spend the extra money. I am against raising cattle in factories without allowing them to freely graze in a grassy field, in natural sunlight, and enjoy their lives until the time comes to slaughter them. Some people are just plain cruel and uncaring. God will judge the wickedness of mankind in eternity (Ecclesiastes 12:14; Hebrews 9:27; 10:31). Consider yourself warned my friend.

Revelation 11:18, “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”


God Cares About Animals

There is a wonderful Scripture in the Old Testament, the last verse of the Book of Jonah, where God expresses His concern for the animals in Nineveh . . .

“And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?” (Jonah 4:11).

In Jonah chapter 4, Jonah is upset with God for sparing judgment upon Nineveh. The people of Nineveh, the capital city of Assyria, repented of their evil ways and God decided not to destroy them. But Jonah wanted them destroyed, no doubt for all that he had been through in the belly of the whale. God saw that the Ninevites were sincere in their repentance, although they were ignorant concerning the truth. The Bible doesn't say they were saved, It simply says they repented of their “evil way” in Jonah 3:10. Nevertheless God had mercy upon them and spared them.

In Jonah 4:11 God informs Jonah that the people are ignorant of the truth, not knowing their right hand from their left, and also that their is MUCH CATTLE in Nineveh. That is a remarkable statement from God. If God were to destroy the people, then who would care for the animals?

Although the Scriptures plainly teach that mankind has dominion over all the animals on earth, the Bible also shows us that God cares about life in general, and does regard the life of each animal. Jesus said that God knows the whereabouts and condition of EVERY ANIMAL ON EARTH, teaching that not even a sparrow can fall from the sky without God allowing it to happen . . . “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father” (Matthew 10:29). This makes it difficult to understand why God allows animal abuse at all, or human abuse, but we know that sin always brings suffering, even for the innocent at times.

We must always remember that it was Eve's rationalizing that caused her to eat of the forbidden tree, which influenced Adam to follow in sin, which plunged the human race into darkness and sin. Genesis 3:6 tells us that IN HER OWN MIND, Eve had fabricated 3 good excuses why she felt justified in disobeying God: 1) It was good for food, 2) The tree was pleasing to the eyes, 3) It was a desirable tree to make one wise. Oh, foolish Eve, she was her own worst enemy. People make the same horrible mistake today, looking for lame reasons to justify disobeying God, and the world continues in suffering, misery and darkness without Jesus Christ.
