Biblical vegetarianism

It has largely gone without mention in modern times that the Bible promotes full veganism. Indeed the very first book of the Bible, Genesis, contains, in its very first chapter, an appraisal of vegetarianism:

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.” (Genesis 1:29-30)

“The Israelites started wailing and said, ‘If only we had meat to eat!’ …All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. …Then they spread them out all around the camp. But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the Lord burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah [graves of craving], because there they buried the people who had craved other food.” (Numbers 11)

The book of Daniel claims that – not only is vegetarianism holy, but it is healthy as well:
“‘Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.’

So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days. At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. So the guard took away their choice food and the wine they were to drink and gave them vegetables instead.” (Daniel 1:12-16)

Acts 10 regards the eating of any and “all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds” as “impure” and “unclean.”

Saul tells gentiles, in Romans 14:21, that “It is better not to eat meat or drink wine.”

Taking it a step further, in 1st Corinthians 8 we are informed that “We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do.” This is obviously the most suicidal and also wildly inaccurate passage in the entire Bible.

“We should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood,” explains James in Acts 15…

“Then the apostles and elders, with the whole church, decided to …send the following letter: ‘It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements: You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality.'”

“The godly care for their animals, but the wicked are always cruel,” explains Proverbs 12:10.

“The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11:6-9)

“He who kills an ox is like one who slays a man.” (Isaiah 66:3)

It almost goes without saying, but vegetarians have fewer, less-healthy sperm than meat-eaters – a new study shows.

5 thoughts on “Biblical vegetarianism”

  1. In the Bible, “gluttony” refers to eating meat instead of keeping to the Biblically prescribed diet of vegetarianism, rather than obesity:

    Proverbs 23:20-21 – “Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.”

  2. The sacrifice creates the state of ecstasy…such enthusiastic, heaven-assailing ecstasy, which lets all gravity of the earth vanish in the beatific presence of the gods. The witches during the middle-ages likewise had a magical feast and dance as the center of their cultic practices, and unification with the demonic world was carried out by them in a most palpable manner.

    He who wants to enter the actual area of demonism and therefore of magic has to be in full possession of all, thus also his animal powers, and will therefore stick to the appropriate meat food. The consumption of meat played a virtually cultic role in the primeval religions, every other kind of food on the other hand was regarded as something almost worthy of contempt. The primitive man still had a sense for the fact that in the meat of the animals, and last but not least of the human itself, a compression of certain world powers is given, which for him reached into mysticism. The content of “mnemonic energy,” that is to say of latent memory-substance, and therefore of psychogenic force in general is without a doubt greater with regards to the animal body than the vegetable. He who “eats” an animal is thereby also assimilating the whole ancestral line of the animal, and this has a greater energetic meaning than the ancestral line of plants which are used for nutritional purposes. Vegetarian food notoriously decreas[es] the intensity of the animal powers, so that the vegetarian is then easier to control. Man is becoming “tamer.” Meat in contrast increases animalism and demands therefore increased efforts for its direction; it makes the man “wilder.”

    The sacrifice gives and creates everything. In this way does the sacrificial hymn, the sacrificial formula, the Brahman obtain domineering power. Since initially the demon is always thought of as incarnated in a human – the oldest sacrifice is the human sacrifice, and since the sacrifice always consists of an “eating” of the sacrificed one – we clearly recognize the magical sacred roots of what we call “cannibalism.”

    The intellectual of today only has a scoffing smile for these things, since from the heights of his “bodiless knowledge” he no longer recognizes the deeper connections of reality. For the old peoples the consuming of a “body” – irrespective of whether animal or human – was something gruesome-holy and of darkest magical importance. Even in the moderated religions of our time we can still see the bloody origins of individual rites.

    A very abstract form which the sacrificial techniques have developed in the European cultural sphere, but still distinctly refers to the bloody foundation is, at present, in the Catholic mass. Here bread and wine are the replacements, but the consciousness, that this is the flesh and the blood of a human god, is still clearly preserved.

    The following is an excerpt from the book of P. Anselm Schott, which plainly illustrates these facts: “God exerted all means of almightiness and wisdom to enhance the sacrifice of the cross and to give it everlasting importance. He made the once opened source of his lifeblood into a vast stream, which flooded the whole of God’s kingdom on earth and the whole of the Holy Church. As often as a poor human, who is consecrated by the bishop as a priest, changes bread and wine into the body and blood of Jesus Christ, the sacrifice of reconciliation on Golgatha is renewed. Jesus Christ is indeed sacrificing himself on the altar, truly like on Mount Calvary. The priest elevates him, shows him to the people and by separating the body from the blood, the consecrated host from the chalice, Jesus appears as slaughtered and deceased, as the lamb whose lifeblood to the last drop has run out of its body. The word of the priest which changes and separates the forms is much like the sacrificial sword under which the lamb is slain. The breaking of the consecrated host represents the violent sacrificial death of the Lord. Encouraged and strengthened by the prayers, the priest enjoys the body and the blood of the lord.”
