Our Responsibility To Animals

What Is Our Responsibility to Animals? I have been receiving material from an animal protection group. I was SHOCKED to find how some animals are mistreated or killed, and how many are on the edge of going extinct. Should we be interested in protecting God's animals?

God gave man the dominion over animals to use them and not to abuse them. We should make sure we are not part of the abuse cycle. I'm not active in saving animals because people are more of a prioroty to me.
I'm sure it would be shocking to see how people are treated too so lets help them first.

We must look after the animals that are our pets. Proverbs 12:10 tells us "A righteous man regards the life of his animal, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel". So we have a duty before God to take care of our pets. However, mankind should always come first, especially lost souls and getting the Gospel to them.

Actually, all nature and animals are very selfish. Look at how wild animals act, very ugly. Even if you look at a flower, real close up, it can look gross and ugly. But I love animals and nature. I love some animals more than some people I know!

animals are god's creation, i believe he created them to teach us kindness, compassion,and tenderness. If we cannot treat the least of these this way, how do we treat other human beings?a stray dog came to my aunt's house once and was starving. It had the most beautiful blue eyes. She worried what to do and i told her the bible says to feed the hungry, and it doesn't say just people. She may have been " entertaining an angel unaware" kimberlynn9854

Just joking Carla, most here who know me know how I love animals, especially our cat "Knothead."

It made me cry this week when I heard that disease was rampant in the Las Vegas 'Humane Society." They killed over 1000 animals, ALL the animals in the shelter. I've been there a few times it was sad to see how unsanitary it was. I pray MANY changes will be made.

We should be saving the animals from extinction but to go as far as giving them jewelry and leaving wealth to them is absured. How ever the comment about how cats taste is a bit unfair to cat lovers dislike them myself but I would't be so insensitive:(

I think it is outrageous that resources are being used by the state to perform operations on street dogs and racoons, and autopsies, while HUMANs are moaning in pain and desperation, in this, the richest land of the world. Its outrageous how downtown americans are abandoned, like sheep without shepherd. and not only metropolitan americans but also suburbans. man. of course other countries are the same if not worse. the world is upside down.

PETA = People Eating Tasty Animals

God has given humans dominon over animals. This means that we are above animals, NOT the other way around. This also means that we are stuwards (managers) over animals. As a manager, we MUST treat animals good, NOT abuse them. This is what the Bible has to say on this.

A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

I once heard that a society is judged based on it's treatment of animals.
---Tbabe on 2/10/07

I think so because they are God's creation.

If we believe what we do as Christians is it important to us if an animal goes extinct. Will that have an effect on someone's salvation? Laws that are made by these groups seeking to put animals above man are making criminals out of good people. I remember a man in Fla. who was forced to put an A/C system in his dogs living area because this animal rights group got involved. In my opinion these groups are undermining Gods divine order that he has set in place here on earth.

What people fail to know with animals is that earth is an interactive planet. One species builds on another animal or plant. As one species disappears it causes a chain reaction from smallest to largest,therefore in protecting the plants and animals of Earth mankind is protecting his own existance. Without plants no oxygen ,also no food,without animals again no food. It is a circle of life. Besides love should cover all beings with kindness.
