Question:

Is it right to kill animals for food? Is it right to eat meal? Can something that we eat making us more closer to God?

Answer:

God in the Holy Bible gave us all the animals to eat.

So we can eat meat. It is not a sin.

Genesis 9:3 > “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything”.

Genesis 1:30 > “And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.”

Acts 10:9-16 > “The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray. And he became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while they were preparing it, he fell into a trance and saw the heavens opened and something like a great sheet descending, being let down by its four corners upon the earth. In it were all kinds of animals and reptiles and birds of the air. And there came a voice to him: “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” …”

The Buddhists believe in the false reincarnation and they don’t eat meat because they fear not eat their grandmother.

It’s false. It’s wrong.

Also the plants are alive.

The Buddhists don’t eat meat because it is a living animal but they eat plants which are alive, too.

The Orthodox Christians don’t eat meat, milk, cheese etc. only in the fasting.

Matthew 9:14-15 > ” 14 Then John’s disciples came and asked him, “How is it that we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?”. 15 Jesus answered, “How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast. ”

With the Orthodox Christian fasting we are close to God and the devil stay far away from us.

With the Orthodox Christian fasting our prayer is stronger and devil goes away.

If someone is ill don’t make fasting or ask his Spiritual Father (=Personal Spiritual Father – Orthodox Priest) about it.

하느님께서는 말씀으로 동물들을 만드시고 그들에게 생명을 주셨습니다.(창세기1,20.24) 또한 동물들이 자신들을 보호하고

생존할 수 있도록 본능을 비롯한 여러 가지 능력을 주셨습니다. 하지만 성서의 기록에 의하면 동물의 생명은 그 피 속에 있으며,

(신명기 12,23)하느님께서 숨과 함께 불어 넣으셨고 또 영원히 죽지 않는 영혼은 오직 인간만이 갖고 있습니다. 동물에게는 불멸

의 영혼이 없습니다. 동물은 죽으면서 그 존재가 영원히 사라집니다. 동물은 주님이 재림하실 때 죽음에서 부활하지 않습니다. 동

물에게는 이성이 없기 때문에 자신이 한 일에 대해 책임을 지지 않으며. 따라서 심판의 날에 창조주에게 자신이 한 일을 낱낱이 고

백할 필요가 없습니다. 동물에게 아무리 훌륭한 속성이 주어졌다 해도(개나 말의 주인에 대한 헌신 등)동물을 이성과 영혼을 가

진 인간과 동등한 취급을 하는 것은 잘못된 일입니다. 물론 동물도 하느님의 창조물 중의 하나이며, 하느님께서는 동물에게 여러

은사와 능력을 주셨으므로 동물도 그 나름대로의 가치는 있습니다. 그래서 인간은 동물을 사랑하고 또 돌보아 주어야 합니다. 동

물에 대한 사랑은 그리스도인으로서의 하느님에 대한 사랑과 감사의 표시입니다. 하느님께서는 다양한 방법으로 인간에게 봉사하

라고 동물들을 만드셨기 때문입니다.

What does the Bible say about dinosaurs?

Are there dinosaurs in the Bible?

The Bible does mention dinosaurs, though it never actually uses the word “dinosaur.” Instead, it uses the Hebrew word tanniyn, which is translated a few different ways in our English Bibles. Sometimes it’s “sea monster,” and sometimes it’s “serpent.” It is most commonly translated “dragon.” The tanniyn appear to have been some sort of giant reptile. These creatures are mentioned nearly thirty times in the Old Testament and were found both on land and in the water.

In addition to mentioning these giant reptiles, the Bible describes a couple of creatures in such a way that some scholars believe the writers may have been describing dinosaurs. The behemoth is said to be the mightiest of all God’s creatures, a giant whose tail is likened to a cedar tree (Job 40:15). Some scholars have tried to identify the behemoth as either an elephant or a hippopotamus. Others point out that elephants and hippopotamuses have very thin tails, nothing comparable to a cedar tree. Dinosaurs like the brachiosaurus and the diplodocus, on the other hand, had huge tails which could easily be compared to a cedar tree.

Nearly every ancient civilization has some sort of art depicting giant reptilian creatures. Petroglyphs, artifacts, and even little clay figurines found in North America resemble modern depictions of dinosaurs. Rock carvings in South America depict men riding diplodocus-like creatures and, amazingly, bear the familiar images of triceratops-like, pterodactyl-like, and tyrannosaurus rex-like creatures. Roman mosaics, Mayan pottery, and Babylonian city walls all testify to man’s trans-cultural, geographically unbounded fascination with these creatures. Sober accounts like those of Marco Polo’s Il Milione mingle with fantastic tales of treasure-hoarding beasts. In addition to the substantial amount of anthropic and historical evidences for the coexistence of dinosaurs and man, there are physical evidences, like the fossilized footprints of humans and dinosaurs found together at places in North America and West-Central Asia.
