What If… Vegan was our design?

So God created the Earth and in the beginning he created ‘man’ to watch over all living things… To be the caretaker.

Genesis 2:15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

During the time in Eden this would be when we began eating animals, but God instructed that plants be the food of choice.

Genesis 1:29-30 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

It was when sin was introduced to the Earth that eating (murder) became part of human existence. We have been given Eden and we continue to destroy it. We are not the caretakers of His garden, but the destroyers of it.

If we were meant to eat meat the God would have instructed such in The Beginning. God gave Adam a choice… But not creature was suitable as a companion. Why would God give Adam a choice of food as a companion if animals were not initially designed as food?

Genesis 2:19-20 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.But for Adam no suitable helper was found.

If we look at the Garden of Eden as the test centre, then we as humans are failures. We did not obey the one and only commandment set out before us and subsequently we banished from Eden, but if God is so forgiving then Earth as a whole can become our Eden.

If we mould our modern world into Eden, Heaven can come back to Earth. We forget that Eden had two trees at its centre, the tree that brought sin into the world and a Tree of Life.

Genesis 2:9 The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

We are so focused on the tree that brought us sin, that we forget that on Earth there is the Tree of Life. Yes this will sound crazy especially to a non-Christian, but if any of the Bible is to be believed then Eden was on Earth, which means that the Tree of Life is here too.

If we revert back to the beginning, before Adam and Eve from the Tree of Good and Evil. We are all Vegan!
We can all find passages in the Bible referring to meat, but that was when we needed to be liberated. I am looking before that before Eve was tempted to eat from the Tree of Good and Evil. In the beginning God created life and Humans were created to love and care for ALL life!
