Philosophy of Veganism

"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." 2 Corinthians 11:3

Philosophy of Vegans

Veganism places animals at the same level of humans.  In contrast, the Bible teaches us that we are in charge of the animals, that we were created to serve God.  That we were made a little higher than the animals, and a little lower than the Angels.  An extension to the philosophy of Veganism, and the conclusion, is that animals should have the same rights as people.  Perhaps even more than people, because animals would be classed as vulnerable, so therefore, as vulnerable, animals could have more rights than an average person.  Eventually, all life form is regarded as equal, or requiring more care than humans.  The need for a tree to exist would be seen as important as the right for a person to exist. 

On paper, it sounds ethical, and in a sense it is.  We should be mindful of animals, we should respect the creation God has given us (Deuteronomy 22:6).

To carry this forward to it's logical conclusion, what about household pets, such as cats and dogs?  Cats especially are carnivore animals, and yet, PETA recommends forcing these animals to live as vegans.  How is this not cruel to animals?  How is this not respecting the life of, needs, desires, wants of a cat?

Here, Peta claim that pets should not be allowed to eat meat, because it's unfair to other animals who don't want to be eaten,

'Some people wonder if it’s “unnatural” to omit meat from the diet of a dog or cat. Animals in the wild commonly eat quite a lot of plant matter. Besides, to feed them the meat that they would naturally eat, you would have to serve them whole mice or birds or allow them to hunt for themselves, an option that is unfair to native species of birds and other small animals.'

PETA is against the use of animals, regardless of them being 'cute'. Isn't keeping an animal as a pet a form of use?  If we are to allow animals to live as intended, then we should not keep pets, however, PETA endorses the use of pets, calling them, 'companion animals.'

PETA also states that to uphold the rights of animals, we should leave them alone,

'Since 1980, PETA has campaigned to establish a global society in which humans consider the needs of what Henry Beston, noted American writer and naturalist of the mid-20th century, so beautifully called “the other nations.” We uphold the rights of individual animals to be respected. For most, that means simply leaving them alone'

How can we leave animals alone, when, we will have to interact with them.  Whether it is from a trip to the countryside, animals living in urban areas, pests, infestations, or when we require natural resources such as wood, oil, metal.

I wonder if it occurs to PETA that many animals would eat us.  As animals are, as they put it, 'a part of the food chain', then we too as humans are.  Therefore logically, as part of the food chain, we should eat animals, and animals would eat us.

In another bizarre twist for PETA, they support the spraying and neutering of animals,

'The single most important thing that we can do to save cats and dogs from all the suffering and death that their overpopulation causes is to spay and neuter them.'

How is it treating animals fairly, when they are deprived of the ability to re-produce?  It is not.

Of course, PETA, as vegans, supports birth control for people, headline of article, 'PETA Backs Birth Control Before Age 15'

Veganism is a Satanic counterfeit to corrupt that to extent that to say animals are equal to us, which they are not (Luke 12:7).

Not only is it a niave proposition, but in reality, it is unworkable, and even dangerous.

Chosing to not eat meat for health reasons is OK, but telling others not to eat meat is the doctrine of devils,

It is a false doctrine, unworkable, unrealistic, led by false spirits, as Paul said in 1 Timothy 1-4, some 2,000 years ago,

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:" 1 Timothy 1-4

The practice of veganism comes two fold, either with heretical views on Christianity, as shown in Section II, or it comes with atheism, which is the same as heretical.  Indeed, veganism comes with it's own 'spiritual' package, as quoted by 'thethinkingvegan', "I began to see clearly that veganism is essentially a contemporary iteration of the ancient Eastern spiritual principle of ahimsa which is non-violence.." and in the words of the founder of the Vegan Society, Donald Watson, "We can see quite plainly that our present civilisation is built on the exploitation of animals, just as past civilisations were built on the exploitation of slaves, and we believe the spiritual destiny of man is such that in time he will view with abhorrence the idea that men once fed on the products of animals' bodies."

Veganism is very much connected to 'spirituality', it is not just about making sure animals are treated OK, but it is a lifestyle, a philosophy, a way of life, a spirituality, tied in with rationalism, environmentalism, rejection of God, embracing of new age.  It is the same spirit today, as seen in Al-Ma'arri in the 10th century, a false spirit.
