About This Site

We are Disciples of Jesus who love His animal kingdom!  I, Kathy, started a Spiritual venture a few years ago that has led me to this blog endeavor, when one day I was awakened to the industrialization and incorporating of animals into factory settings.  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 will be mainly 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 are we down playing 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.

This site will endeavor:

Using a Biblical approach, to share Christ’s love for us and all He has created, following the Holy Spirit’s lead, using the truth of scripture as it is revealed to us;

To focus on who animals are by exploring who they were created to be;

To explore what mankind’s role as the Shepherd over creation and the earth in the Image of the Good Shepherd is meant to look like;

To create a resource page to give the readers a place to find educational material on the topic of animal exploitation and abuse; information as to how to get involved and take action; information on diet and how to live a Vegan life-style;

To encourage others to speak out to their church leaders about the need for Creation Care Ministries within their own church body;

To serve as a tool for individuals to take information to their church bodies; as churches awaken to their role in creation care, we on this site hope to provide some material that leaders can use to help them create Creation Care Ministries for the body of Christ for which they serve, or point them to where they can be found;

To work alongside the animal welfare movement in their most important work, bringing the love of Christ with us in all we do, in hopes of revealing to those who have become hardened that our Lord and Savior really is a loving God.  To those who don’t know Him, we invite you to take a look and make an informed decision to such an important question as to what this life experience is really all about!  You will find when you search with your whole heart for Him and for the truth, that Our Abba Father will show up for you (Jeremiah 29:13); He is real, He is there for us, He does love animals very much, and He loves animal welfarists, each and every one, unsurpassably; it isn’t and never was His intent that mankind exploit animals the way that we have and do, and Jesus Christ really still is the answer to overcome every kind of evil plaguing this troubled world.

  1. Have you ever seen the UK television series All Creatures Great and Small? It is probably my favorite series of any on TV ever. If you haven’t you may would enjoy.

    Ah Finally!!! A website that covers the love of animals, animal abuse, veganism, and chritianity. Every single other site made me mad from its ignorance, as it sounded like they dont even care about animals. Saying they dont have souls, they are to be used any way by us, and that pets dont go to heaven??! If you simply ask God for your pets to go to heaven with you, he will! He controls everything and can do the impossible. Sigh.

      Hi Emily, I am glad you found our blog! And yes, we believe the care of all of God’s creation is Biblical, in fact is mandated by God and has been since Eden. And we believe as scripture tells us that “The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it.” (Psalm 24:1) It is not ours to use however we wish, and especially not according to our fallen state of mind and being, but rather in the Image of who we were created in are we to care for it, and, if we do use creation as the Bible also gives us permission to, it is with mercy, love and kindness that we do.

      I hope you will follow the blog, and when you do, you will receive notifications when we post something. We try to post weekly, no more than that, and sometimes less, depending on the time we have to devote to writing. There is also a Facebook page by the same name, and we post other things there, saving the blog posts for articles, essays, and the like.

      Thanks again for your comment. God bless you!

      Kathy

  4. I believe that God gave man dominion over the earth and all things created that are on the earth. With this Herculean assignment, I believe that we are to care for all our resources just as Christ would have – with love and compassion. Great Site!

      Thank you, yes, this stands true with Jesus’ teaching to put on love above all in all we do. Thanks again for your comment! I’ve visited your site and am following you, too, and enjoy your writing immensely! Thanks. I like the way your site is laid out, also, very well done. I’d like to do more with this site, organizing it in a perhaps more user friendly way, making our topics more assessable, etc. Finding time is always a challenge!
