Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:

Take Heart!


Matthew Scully, author of Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy writes a great article about the movie “Noah” that is currently playing at theaters. He emphasizes on the fact Christianity calls for mercy and stewardship, and that there are many lessons we can be reminded of through “Noah.”

Scully correctly states, “If the Bible is your guide in these matters (and reason only points in the same direction), nothing in all its wisdom prevents anyone from witnessing for that merciful alternative in the here and now. And however blurred by the doctrines of man, there’s a good deal in Scripture to encourage the effort. Nowhere does the Lord say, “Kill this in remembrance of me.”

There is no mandate to eat meat, and if there are no justifications of survival or health, either, then it’s worth asking what’s left. All sorts of fasting practices, dietary and slaughter rules, and prayers before meals still acknowledge the stain of violence. But instead of trying to sanctify the harm done, how about not harming at all? Why just say grace when we can show it?”
