Continues from the previous post -
This shows that during timothy, priests were supposed to marry that practice was discontinued in later period in Roman Catholic Church but it continued with Protestant cult. Interesting part in this is that Timothy had foretold the change in this practice and he has blamed those who shall make that change. See Timothy quotes:
Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
Timothy 4:2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
Timothy 4:3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.
Timothy 4:4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.
It is observed here that Timothy had foreseen the forcible change over from meat food to vegan food that we see today.
In Hindu scriptures also, they say, before eating meat food it must first be given to god as offering and then only it is eaten by the faithful. Eating without that is not recommended. Since it is a kill to offer to God, it must be without pain to the animal. If it pains to the animal, that meat cannot be served as offering to God but to Satan. Therefore, in both religions meat offerings can be done provided the animal is killed without pain. In Islam killing of an animal is called Qurbani, means "offering" to Allah. This shows that in all these religions killing is not banned but it must be without cruelty to those animals and offerings must be to the god before eating it. This is because it is an accepted fact that God has created man as the best predator. To control number, of rapidly growing animals, and that way help Mother Nature in managing this cosmos. The objection is to cruelty and not to killing if it is without cruelty to animal. As the nature's law, rules all created animals are going to die after some time and if they are not killed in the name of God and eaten by man, they will anyway die and they will be eaten by germs and such worms that they will cause spread of many diseases. Presently we endeavor to implement unlimited control on killing of these fast proliferating animals due to influence of Jainism. By practicing unlimited non-killing, we disobey the order of Mother Nature. We may have to suffer due to this indiscipline.
