Animals have a soul too
1 Cor 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
Luke 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
Genesis 9:16-17 When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth. And God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth."
Ec 3:19 For what happens to the children of man and what happens to the beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts, for ALL IS VANITY.
"Chimpanzees, as well as children too young to have learned the rules of politeness, spontaneously engage in helpful behaviors, even when they have to stop playing or overcome obstacles to do so. The same results have been duplicated with children in Canada, India, and Peru, as well as with chimpanzees at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany and other research centers across the world. The chimps helped not only people they knew, but human strangers too. Compassion, it turns out, is innate. Human beings and other animals have what Dacher Keltner, a professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, calls a "compassionate instinct."(source)
Greed and Animal Cruelty
God notices how people treat the animals in their care, and he wants them to choose kindness, according to a story from Numbers 22 in which a donkey spoke audibly to her master after he mistreated her. A sorcerer named Balaam and his donkey encountered the Angel of the Lord while traveling, and what happened showed the importance of treating God's creatures well.
Balaam's Donkey Speaks
Balaam set off on a journey to do some sorcery work for Balak, the king of ancient Moab, in exchange for a large sum of money. Even though God had sent a message in a dream not to do the work - which involved spiritually cursing the Israelite people whom God had blessed - Baalam let greed take over in his soul and chose to take on the Moabite assignment despite God's warning. God was angry that Baalam was motivated by greed rather than faithfulness.
As Balaam was riding on his donkey on the way to do the work, God himself showed up in angelic form as the Angel of the Lord. Numbers 22:23 describes what happened next: "When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, it turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat it to get it back on the road."
Balaam went on to beat his donkey twice more as the donkey moved out of Angel of Lord's way. Each time the donkey moved abruptly, Balaam got upset by the sudden movement and decided to punish his animal.
The donkey could see the Angel of the Lord, but Balaam couldn't. Ironically, even though Balaam was a famous sorcerer who was known for his clairvoyant abilities,
he couldn't see God appearing as an angel - but one of God's creatures could. The donkey's soul was apparently in a more pure state than Balaam's soul was.
Purity makes it easier to perceive angels because it opens up spiritual perception in the presence of holiness. Then, miraculously, God made it possible for the donkey to speak to Balaam in an audible voice to get his attention. "Then the LORD opened the donkey's mouth, and it said to Balaam, 'What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?'" verse 28 says.
Matthew 7:2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Vera Cruz, Mexico, a cow escaped on the way to the slaughterhouse. She
ran with all her strength and desire to live through several streets
until she entered a church called Our Lady of Mercy. However, it was not a happy escape, for there was no mercy. She was captured and certainly doesn't exist in this world anymore.The crowdfunding tried to survive, to deceive her destiny, but could
not be understood. No one defended her even though she showed her
despair. No animal wants to die, they appreciate your life as much as you do. (source)

Factory Farming Today
People do not fully understand the magnitude of the scale that is factory farming in 2020. BILLIONS of animals are abused and killed every single week. And make no mistake... almost 100% of the animal flesh you buy comes from a factory farm. You can stop pretending you don't know this by now.
When so many animals are confined in one place, the surrounding land can't handle the incredible amount of toxic animal waste being produced. This leads to severe air, land and water pollution.
The air pollution and stench from this waste is so powerful that it causes respiratory problems, skin infections, depression and even death for people living in the surrounding areas. In the US alone, over 35,000 lakes and rivers have been directly contaminated by factory farms.
Animals in these farms are mutilated beyond belief. Castration, teeth clipping, beak trimming, tail docking... all without pain medication.
Factory farming needs to be abolished.
Yet all of this must sound great to you because you keep paying for it to continue! You repeat this programmed behavior not only at the expense of the lives of innocent animals... but at the expense of the health of your fellow humans, the health of your planet and the health of YOU, the person doing this! If you would actually take the time to stop and think about it, you'll see it's an easy choice to make. (source)
bring them into an enslaved existence for the sole purpose of executing
them - the date of their death, already marked on our calendars before
they are even born. We force them into bodies designed to harm
themselves to overproduce whatever it is that we want to extract from
them - eggs, milk, babies, flesh, fiber... befairbevegan.com
They wait for death in the slaughterhouse corridor, crammed amongst their kin in fear. They can hear what is ahead, they can smell the blood and know in every fiber of their being that they are going to die.
This is the misery that animals face every single second of the day. 70 billion a year. Do the right thing....Go vegan
We force them to become mothers only to steal and kill their children. We deny them a say in every important aspect of their lives and, when they are more profitable dead than alive, we murder them.
Seagulls tend to stop flying and take refuge at the coast if a storm is coming, which helps us to predict when a storm will be coming.
The Chinese earthquake that killed more than 12,000 people was predicted by a mass migration of frogs. Animals tend to seek safety long before the human knows what's coming. When the humans were still living amidst nature, it was easier for them to recognize natures signs. Nowadays, when most people are forced to live in boxes of concrete, they have lost every contact they use to have with nature, and its animals.
"Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD." (Jeremiah 8:7)
God's Love for Animals
God loves the animals so much that Noah had to build the huge Ark, in order to save them. He said the lesser creatures would too, enjoy his Kingdom (we shall see our pets in the afterlife if you were wondering). God made mankind the steward over the animals, and it is our responsibility to care for them.
God speaks in Jonah 4:11 And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left- and also many animals?"
In 1 Kings 17:2-6 God commanded the ravens to feed Elijah. In Numbers 22:27-32 the Lord told the donkey to speak to Balaam, and in Matthew 12:40 we can see that Jonas spent three days and three nights inside a whale's belly.
In Revelations 4:4-11 angels are described with having animal features. Jesus Christ himself will come on a horse (Revelations 19:11).
He ordered the animals to be saved with the Ark, we will see them in Heaven and Jesus, whose birth was witnessed by animals, will return on a horse; that says plenty on how God regards animals and how we should treat them.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it
Where is the respect, gratitude?
When did our fellow creations of God turn into objects to be used and abused?
The native Americans believed they shared the Earth with their animal relatives, especially the bison. Daily life and ceremonies revolved around the sacred RESPECT they had for the bison. For they were thankful for the bison and the life it provided them. The bison provided them with meat for food, hides for clothing and shelter, and horns and bones for tools. They would even use the bladder to hold water. For the native Americans, the bison EQUALED SURVIVAL.
What does the Bible say?
According to the bible we may eat flesh, no pigs though, no bats and so on.
We are also not suppose to judge those who do eat meat (Romans 14:1-23).
The bible is however very clear on love for animals. God is against animal cruelty.
It should be taken into consideration though that there was no meat in the garden of Eden and neither will there be in the kingdom of God.
We started to eat meat after we sinned, not when we were pure. For physical strength without meat you can look at the Shaolin monks. By Gods standards alltogether the way we use animals has nothing to do with survival anymore but with greed and gluttony.
Eating animals that have suffered so much means stainingyour temple (body) with blood sacrifice (to Mammon; animals that have been killed for the solemn purpose of making money) of purely demonic nature.
Fruit is the only cuisine that is karmaless. All other food involves killing, whether it be of animals, plants or seed. When ripened to perfect by sun, it is plucked from the tree by the wind and laid as an offering for humankind or animals. It is the easiest food to digest. It is the least mucus-inducing of all foods. ~ Arnold Ehret

Netherlands burning animals alive
22,000 STABLE FIRE VICTIMS AND NO RESEARCH? The death of tens of thousands of animals is apparently not in itself a reason for investigation. Animal Rights thinks this is absurd and disrespectful to the animals. According to Animal Rights, this concerns a company with 22,000 laying hens with a 3-star 'better life' quality mark. Even a "3-star them" does not want to die, especially in a stable fire. According to the fire brigade, there were "several thousands" chickens in the burned stables and most of them died in the stables by the fire. Only a few hundred chickens would have survived the fire. Again no victim numbers are mentioned.
Millions of animals die from barn fires yet there are still no specific fire safety rules and rarely sprinklers in the barn. Barn fires 2020, even more than in 2019
In the livestock industry, pigs and other animals live permanently on concrete slatted floors, above a well with their own droppings. Mixing manure and urine causes the poisonous gas ammonia in manure cellars. The acidic ammonia also attacks the floors, causing animals to regularly dump in the manure cellar and drown horribly in their own feces. An analysis by Varkens in Nood shows that, on average, the fire brigade has to turn out almost five times a week to rescue animals from a manure pit. Sometimes it is just stress and injuries, but it is also common for animals to choke on the toxic fertilizer gases or drown in their own feces.

As the animal agriculture industry continues to take over the Earth's landmass, species rich habitats are being quickly destroyed. A frightening one acre of land is cleared every second. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, habitat destruction and ocean dead zones.
Animal agribusiness already occupies about 40% of Earth's landmass and accounts for 75% of global deforestation. The rapid destruction is causing species to disappear, negatively impacting the biodiversity of native ecosystems and furthering our path into the 6th mass extinction of all species on Earth.
More than 3,600 scientists from 63 countries point out that the European Commission's proposal for the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) should be "drastically improved" after 2020 to halt the loss of biodiversity. Current agricultural policy is destroying nature in rural areas, according to scientists. source

She's witnessed cattle forced to stand on hard floors for weeks on end, sick, injured animals left to die, and sheep literally cooking from the inside with their "fat melted and like a translucent jelly".
"Some animals are held on decks for as long as 40 days, living on hard decking of concrete and metal. They [the animals] are not built to cope with these environments," said Simpson.

Animals exported live from EU countries are routinely being subjected to abuse, illegal transportation conditions and inhumane slaughter.
Dozens of undercover videos and photographs obtained by the Guardian show live cattle and sheep from EU countries being beaten, shocked with electric prods, held for days in overcrowded pens and covered head to toe in faeces as they are transported from Europe to their final destinations in Turkey and the Middle East.
At their destination the animals are slaughtered in appalling conditions. The footage shows cattle and sheep from France, Romania and Lithuania kicking and flailing violently as their throats are crudely cut or sawed at repeatedly, often in crowded street markets and run-down abattoirs.

Australia to Satans liking
The land was nearly entirely barren. Where once stood miles upon miles of eucalyptus trees now only a few sparse patches remained. With so few trees, the koalas in the area were forced to huddle in the various patches to find enough food to survive. But after a while, even those trees had no leaves for them to eat. The aftermath was a six and a half mile swath of land that had become a graveyard. Starved koalas lay hanging from trees, or baking in the ground under the hot sun. Other koalas met a different, but just as gruesome fate - caught in the logged area, chewed up, and spat out by the machinery.
