JESUS WAS A VEGAN...Video below
In Gods initial and ideal world, represented in the book of Genesis by the Garden of Eden, there was no suffering, no exploitation, and no violence at all.
God said, See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the earth,
and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth,
and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food. And it was so. God saw everything that he had made,
and indeed, it was very good.
The consumption of animal flesh was unknown up until the great flood. But since the great flood,
we have had the fibers and the stinking fluids of animal flesh stuffed into our mouths...
Jesus, the Christ, who appeared when the time was fulfilled, again joined the end to the beginning,
so that we are now no longer allowed to eat animal flesh.
I live on bread and olives, to which I only seldom add a vegetable.
Clementine Homilies XII, 6; rec. VII, 6
(Adversus Jovinanum 1:30)
Matthew lived on seed, the fruit of trees and vegetables without meat.
Clemens of Alexandria,
Paidagogos II, 1:16
John never ate meat.
Church historian Hegesipp according to Eusebius,
History of the Church II 2:3
Jacob, the brother of the Lord, lived on seeds and plants and touched neither meat nor wine.
Epistulae ad Faustum XXII, 3
In the earthly paradise, there was no wine, no one sacrificed animals and no one ate meat.
As long as one lives frugally the luck of the house will increase; the animals will be safe;
no blood will be shed, and no animal will be killed.
The cooks knife will be useless; the table will only be set with fruits which nature offers to us,
and one will be satisfied with that.
From the epistles of Basilius the Great (329-379)
Jesus' message is about love and compassion, but there is nothing loving or compassionate at factory farms and slaughterhouses, where billions of animals endure miserable lives and die violent deaths.
If Jesus lived in our culture of violence, he would do everything he could to confront the structures of death and call for a new culture of peace and life.
Hosea: "I desire mercy and not sacrifice."
Jesus NEVER ate Meat VIDEO BELOW... and said ...
"All who desire to be my disciple LET NO FLESH MEAT ENTER YOUR MOUTHS" (Lection 38, Gospel of the Holy Twelve)
Yet more than 97% of Christians Eat Meat....
"In the beginning, God gave to all, the fruits of the trees, and the seeds. and the herbs, for food; BUT THOSE WHO LOVED THEMSELVES MORE THAN GOD, OR THEIR FELLOWS, corrupted their ways, and brought diseases into their bodies, and filled the earth with lust and violence." (Jesus, Lecion 75, Gospel of The Holy Twelve)
......and that is why this video wasn't made in the hope of Christians changing their ways....because I know Christians and I know nearly all would never stop eating meat because as Jesus said......they "love themselves more than God and animals"
I would be totally shocked if even 1 out of a 1000 Christians who watch this stop eating meat. So this video really is just here to serve the purpose of informing people that....
CHRISTIANITY AS TAUGHT AND PRACTICED TODAY IS NOT JESUS' TEACHINGS.
Speciesism IS discrimination, so please reject discrimination and go vegan! Other animals may look and think differently to us but so do other humans! Anyone who has an interest in not suffering should have that interest protected and we have no right to justify the exploitation of animals by pleasure/ habit/ convenience!
I've got a little eyeliner from "Everyday Minerals" on. They're a vegan/ no animal testing brand.
Believe in justice, love, nonviolence, peace and the end of all discrimination and exploitation, including speciesism: Go Vegan!
Humans are animals too, and all animals can feel pain and don't want to feel pain. Stop causing unnecessary suffering! What are you waiting for?
Be Vegan. Make Peace.
The Lemurians also emphasizes the importance of treating all beings with compassion which is the natural way of living for the soul. Adama the Head Priest of Telos says that we will not bring our animals to the surface until they can receive in your realm as much love as they receive in our realm. There is still a lot of animal abuse on your planet and this is not acceptable. A civilization their evolution is evaluated much by the way they treat their animals and it does not say much about your civilization by they way you treat the animals. Adama says until all the animals are loved in your dimension as in our dimensions you will not see our animals..@ 08.52 on Video below

One of the biggest change on this Planet would occur if everyone turned Vegan...LOVE, LIGHT, COMPASSION, PEACE AND HARMONY WOULD FOLLOW WHICH WOULD BOOST ASCENSION FOR ALL BEINGS ON THIS PLANET
Those who eat animal flesh and call themselves LightWorkers know them to be the biggest fools on this Planet.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT AND WHAT YOU EAT EFFECTS YOUR MIND, BODY AND SOUL.
HEAL YOURSELF FIRST BEFORE TRYING TO HEAL OTHERS.

this was a pleasant surprise to me , really , I was really very happy - Israel starts to go veg !!
I have been a Vegan now for sometimes...even got myself vegan shoes that make me feel good
What about the countless ppl - including myself - who were vegans and the diet was detrimental to their bodies and their health declined rather than improved. The Vegan diet is an experiment where no multi generational example has ever been recorded on Earth. Even vegetarianism was created by monks because of it's effects on sex hormones as living in monasteries was difficult for them with their sexual desires. I like my libido and my partner and I enjoy it. I don't want a diminished sex drive and to become passive or to lose physical strength. Ppl can eat animals and still have compassion for them by eating free range organic meat (and vegetables) where animals are treated well and respected for the role they play. American Indians, Mayans, Australian Aborigines, Islanders, Maoris, etc were all spiritually attuned civilizations in harmony with their environment and attuned to the divine, and yet no civilization ever has survived or thrived on a vegan diet. I think it's philosophically a 'feel good' diet that has benefits for a period of time and cleanses the body after a lifetime of processed food - but not forever.
GAPS/Paleo diet is a true healing diet. Even cures Autism and other modern day afflictions. Check it out if you have an open mind.
been vegan for 17 yrs and I believe that you did this totally wrong. There are countless millions around the planet who actually succeded in changing their diet without giving up when something went wrong( it did for me on many occasions yet I stuck with it and I thrive ). yes, I've heard many folks say I tried that but didn't work; well they didn't try hard enough.
How can you say they didn't try hard enough. You're speaking out of ignorance because you don't know them or what their experience was. I was vegetarian for 8yrs then vegan for 2. I studied a great deal of books and online information. Youtube and online forums are teaming with ex vegans who eventually had to admit they weren't thriving on the diet. At one stage i was told I looked like I had aids or cancer and the stereotypical vegan does look under nourished. Women tend to get away with the diet a little more as they naturally carry weight but men often end up looking emanciated unless they work out a lot. Even the women look kind of like jello. A 'skinny fat' look where their muscles atrophy but some fat covers them. Basically they look soft. There are exceptions who get put up as examples on youtube and online for others to say 'see...veganism works' but these are the minorities and these men and women work out almost full time. Hardly natural or practical. Carl lewis is used as an example of veganism but what they don't tell you is that he never used to eat because he would instantly get fat, then the year that he went vegan he was eating and that's when he won his medals. But typically with the vegan diet it was all down hill from there and his career fizzled.
There's been no multi generational example of vegan diet working ever in recorded history. If ppl choose that diet then that's fine, but telling others it's 'unspiritual' to eat animals is simply false and nonsense of the new age religious. All enlightened civilizations so far have been consuming animal products. And to tell ppl that animal products are detrimental to ones health is also nonsense and being debunked more and more with science, not to mention thousands of years of recorded human history. It works for some ppl, but I bet if you took a survey at the last olympics as to how many ppl were vegans, you'd come up with less than 1%. Simply because our bodies are hard wired to thrive and reach peak performance on our ancestral diet.
This forum is full of ex vegans who simply had to admit the diet wasn't optimal and are now thriving on an ancestral Paleo diet http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/forum.php
