Shepherding All God’s Creatures

Mankind’s Dominion, God’s Suffering Creatures, and Our Call to Merciful, Loving Stewardship

We are Disciples of Jesus who love His animal kingdom! Animals today are exploited on every level by man: factory farms, vivisection, fur farms, puppy mills, canned hunting and hunting in general as a sport, animals in entertainment, and others.

The focus of this site is on our special calling to help bring the voice of Christ to issues surrounding His animal Kingdom. In no way are we alienating the human race nor downplaying the many serious issues plaguing mankind; to the contrary. Christ’s love is indivisible. His call to us to care for the earth and the animals is as urgent as is our call within any issue plaguing mankind, as we witness for ourselves what is happening to the human race precisely because we have not heeded this particular call. There is room within the doctrine of the church for these issues. The call to practice Christ’s Kingdom values of love, kindness, mercy, non-violence extend to ALL He has made, first out of respect, love, and obedience to our Mutual Creator, and next, because as those created in His Image, we were created to do so.

Noah, Meat Eating, And The Flood

Part One Genesis 9:3 is often used to justify meat-eating as God’s will in the present age. At the same time, Genesis 9:3 is normally juxtaposed with Genesis 1:29 — in which humanity is given a vegan diet — with Genesis 9:3 as de facto annulling the previous scripture...
