Take Heart!
So… Where Should We Draw the Line?

Why not eat a chicken but eat an orange? Aren’t both living beings? This type of question is many times asked by people upon learning that probably it would be a good idea to stop eating animals. Kasey Minnis, a vegan who is passionate about her faith and protecting Earth and its creatures, believes that the Bible certainly gives us much insight about this issue. She believes that sentience is the key to drawing the line. Animals have been endowed with the capability of feeling pain, which to this day seems plants cannot. So why cause unnecessary suffering to a creature of God when we can avoid doing this?

Please visit Plants, Animals & Souls: A Judeo-Christian Perspective:
Although in my opinion the question about why eat plants but not animals is just a way to avoid the issue, it’s always helpful to explain that even plants are creations of God; and therefore, we must make use of them in a responsible way. By feeding plants to animals and then eating animals, we are wasting enormous amount of food and killing/eating many more plants than if we ate them directly. After all, a plant-based diet causes the least suffering, is the most sustainable and is ideal for our bodies.
