Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Matthew 5:11-12

"Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Sometimes, when standing up for our Faith, we undergo persecution and alienation. However, this verse reminds us that even though times get hard we need to rejoice in the reward of knowing we are being obedient to God, and therefore fulfilling our calling.

Many times we might be the target of unpleasant comments or even feel rejected and alienated. Christian vegetarians have been called to witness God’s love and compassion toward all creatures. We’ve been called to spread the good news about vegetarianism as good stewardship of all of God’s creation. When we raise awareness of the cruelty of factory farming, of the health problems related to a meat-based diet and to the pollution animal agriculture is responsible for, we are choosing to obey God. It is for this that we need to rejoice and be glad.

Your question and comments are welcome
