CREATION and Our Food



CREATION and Our Food Betsan 

We can act with kindness to the earth in what we eat. Eating less meat is an act of kindness. John Wesley was a vegetarian – he taught eating a plant-based diet was best for physical and spiritual health and is part of compassion and kindness. Prophetically he said:
“I believe in my heart that faith in Jesus Christ can and will lead us beyond an exclusive concern for the well-being of other human beings to the broader concern for the well-being of the birds in our backyards, the fish in our rivers, and every living creature on the face of the earth.” (God’s Covenant with Animals, Lantern Books, 2000, xii)
