God never stopped permission to eat meat Christian vegetarian is a choice in Bible. God says abstain from a meat strangled, sacrificed to idols.

Every beast on earth and bird of the air everything creeping on earth with breath of life is given to eat and green plant for foods in Genesis 1:30. Daniel did not defile himself with food sacrificed to idols or wine asked to be given vegetables to eat and water to drink for few days eats Passover lamb.

The animal skins, leathers, furs use natural chemical process, finishing textiles, urine and natural organic dyes. A high-quality fur coat, leatherbag last generations compared to synthetic lifespan.Leather, fur have no viable alternatives that are biodegradable. Synthetic faux fur fake ‘leather’ biodegrades 50 years longer than a treated leather 5 years biodegraded. Plastic particles in soil in oceans and inside fish but genuine leather fur process proves real fur biodegrades faster than fake “faux” results more dramatic than is expected. Synthetics petroleum by-products are not renewable resource causes extraction and transport problems. God’s animals are renewable, so sustainable and God said kill and eat as lion and bears kill and eat. Extinction caused by destroying habitat of birds, bees or animals worse since veganism globalism alternative. Almonds milk drinks produces greenhouse gas effect than the plant-based milk. Vegan options have drawbacks of their own as an average person eats 2lb (900g) of almonds each year more than other countries in US almond milk sales grown 350%.

Versatility of almonds in foods Richard Waycott, president, CEO of Almond Board of California advocacy organization, represents majority of farmer’s enormous orchards loss can’t function without bees in agricultural honeybee.

Veganism driven by new age pagan thinks mankind reincarnate as animals so ‘killing’ fellow animal beings is not in Bible and true Christianity. Evolution misguides people to think humans evolve from animals not true. God creates all mankind in HIS OWN IMAGE AND LIKENESS AND SAID HIS CREATION IS VERY VERY GOOD in Bible in Genesis. God created a whole Adam and Eve so didn’t evolve in stages as evolution says. Mankind fell into sin but God provides the Seed Jesus to restore mankind to God. So God demands animal sacrifices on the altar in His Temples many generations since Cain and Abel, and Solomon’s highest number animal sacrifices pleased God in Bible to visit him in dreams on many occasions.

In Exodus, when Israelites demanded meat in a desert wilderness they complained against God to return to slavery in Egypt. God gave them meat but punished them for arrogant demands not because he banned them eating meat.

Leather Sandals, Purse, Bags in the Bible
In Bible sandals is important item Solomon said, “How beautiful is your feet in sandals” in Song of Solomon 7:1. God clothes with the garment and fine leather sandals, fine linen clothes of costly garments in Ezekiel 16:10. Jesus sent twelve disiples two by two and he gave them authority over all unclean spirits told carry nothing on trip except staff, so no bread, food pouch, no money in their belts to put on sandals not to wear two garments in Mark 6 7-9. In Luke 15:22 the father said bring robe, clothe him and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.” In Acts angel said, “Get dressed and put on your sandals, garment and following me.” 40 years in the wilderness, your garments and your sandals didn’t wear on your feet says Deuteronomy 29:5. Ancient sandals made from flat sole of leather, wood or fibrous material strapped to feet by laces from natural leather straps in Bible times are durable and comfortable. Natural leather essential for living without transportation people walked days, months and years. Israelites walked 40 years in the desert wilderness. God’s people traveled by foot to Jerusalem 3 times a year and Jesus’ disciples traveled ancient world to proclaim the good news of God’s kingdom. So leather sandals was very important. The resources were limited. Leather is sourced locally and processed in natural environments.
