So my animal-loving-vegetarian-eating daughter says, "Daddy, will people be able to kill animals in Heaven?" I said, "No! There will be no killing in Heaven" So then my son says, "You mean I can't have a steak in Heaven?" I said, "I assume only a tofu steak will be on the Heavenly menu ... but then again maybe God will just drop Filet Mignon down on our plates when it's time to eat."
WE ALL STARTED OUT VEGETARIAN
Genesis 1:28-29 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground." Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
Now, for all you meat-lovers don't get uptight, God gave us approval to eat meat, if we want to eat meat, eat it! I am not preaching against it here, simply sharing my conversation with my kids. I just can't do a To-furkey on Thanksgiving! I gotta have the real thing! Though we do special order a drug-free Turkey from Wholefoods every year.
