Christian veganism | Genesis 1:29 and my thoughts

  My thoughts on Christian veganism!


Genesis 1:29


   I believe in eating and living according to the bible. In the context of diet, as reveled to our first parents and recorded in Genesis 1:29. This verse tells how we should eat, God's original diet plan for us/mankind, and Jesus tells us how we are to live, and think about the world. So we can live a life worthy of His Kingdom, living as if we are already in Heaven. Genesis 1:29 is a raw vegan diet, the diet giving to us by God before sin and death entered into the world.

"It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer or die needlessly. It is likewise unworthy to spend money on them that should as a priority go to the relief of human misery. One can love animals; one should not direct to them the affection due only to persons." (CCC 2418) 

This isn't about perfection but doing what we can to help ourselves and all of God's creation. This is also not about vilifying certain foods, but being mindful of what, who, and why we eat what we eat. Being good stewards of creation and not just users of it, and certainly not abusers of it. Does this mean you have to be vegan to follow Christ or to be a moral person? NO! But I do believe that how we view animals, treat animals, and certainly human beings, our own bodies and creation is essential to living an authentic Christian life. We are not called to perfection but to just give a dam and try to do everything that we can to prepare for the life to come.
