What I mean to say is that the KJV edition came from earlier corruptions by Romans. The book was not developed in the 1600's it was translated from previous writings at that time. Those previous writings are the corruptions. And those that translated the KJV edition in the 1600's also corrupted the scripture. During the early times of Christanity the Romans would persecute other Christians that were followers of the true teachings of Jesus. The Romans created their own versions of Christianity at that time under Constantine and Paul which promoted and animal flesh diet among other things.
ok, explain to me how the ethopian version of the bible and the other eastern version of the bible which never came under the hands of the romans still affirm the right to eat meat.
and you do know that there is several hundred years between paul and constantine
this passage alone outshines anything found in that New Testament.
The Ill Treatment Of Animals
1. AND some of his disciples came and told him of a certain Egyptian, a son of Belial, who taught that it was lawful to torment animals, if their sufferings brought any profit to men.
2. And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, they who partake of benefits which are gotten by wronging one of God's creatures, cannot be righteous: nor can they touch holy things, or teach the mysteries of the kingdom, whose hands are stained With blood, or whose mouths are defiled with flesh.
3. God giveth the grains and the fruits of the earth for food: and for righteous man truly there is no other lawful sustenance for the body.
4. The robber who breaketh into the house made by man is guilty, but they who break into the house made by God, even of the least of these are the greater sinners. Wherefore I say unto all who desire to be my disciples, keep your hands from bloodshed and let no flesh meat enter your mouths, for God is just and bountiful, who ordaineth that man shall live by the fruits and seeds of the earth alone.
5. But if any animal suffer greatly, and if its life be a misery unto it. or if it be dangerous to you, release it from its life quickly, and with as little pain as you can, Send it forth in love and mercy, but torment it not, and God the Father-Mother will shew mercy unto you, as ye have shown mercy unto those given into your hands.
6. And whatsoever ye do unto the Cast of these my children, ye do it unto me. For I am in them and they are in me, Yea, I am in all creatures and all creatures are in me. In all their joys I rejoice, in all their afflictions I am afflicted. Wherefore I say unto you: Be ye kind one to another, and to all the creatures of God.
7. AND it came to pass the day after, that he came into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.
8. Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold there was a dead man carried out the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.
9. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not, thy son sleepeth. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
10. And he that was esteemed dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. And there came an awe upon all: and they glorified God, saying, A great prophet is risen up among us; and God hath visited his people.
That is your opinion but you still have not answered my questions
God did, according to Christianity.
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
Funny Christians get silent on this verse.
a universe without evil would be evil. Because evil is the choice to do what you know is wrong
Does not logically follow. The universe is not a choice, as there is no alternative.
christians are not silent on this verse. That verse is just translated too strongly and the word for evil used here is "rah" it does not mean evil it's meaning is closer to woe or calamity THAT SAME word is used elsewhere in the scriptures and it's not translated into the word evil.
