Today's veganism (and vegetarianism) is yesterday's ascetism: to "not taste!" It is part of the corrupt world and its doctrines and commandments of mere men, going against Scripture. In essence it is today's new paganism, that has a low view of man and a high view of the earth and animals. God commanded that rams, heifers, pigeon, goats doves and lambs for example, to be sacrifice to God. Moreover, Yahweh would not command us to eat meat if it was unsuitable for human consumption.
Col 2:20 If you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as, 21 "Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!" 22 (which all refer to things destined to perish with the using)—in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men? 23 These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence.
Yahweh gives Man animals for food:
Gen 9:2 "And the fear of you and the terror of you shall be on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the sky; with everything that creeps on the ground, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand they are given.
Gen 9:3 "Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, as I gave the green plant. 4 "Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.
Abraham fed the Lord and His angels curds, milk, and meat:
Gen 18:7 Abraham also ran to the herd, and took a tender and choice calf, and gave it to the servant; and he hurried to prepare it. 8 And he took curds and milk and the calf which he had prepared, and placed it before them; and he was standing by them under the tree as they ate.
Exo 12:8 'And they shall eat the flesh that same night, roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
Exo 16:8 And Moses said, "This will happen when the LORD gives you meat to eat in the evening, and bread to the full in the morning; for the LORD hears your grumblings which you grumble against Him. And what are we? Your grumblings are not against us but against the LORD."
Exo 16:11 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
Exo 16:12 "I have heard the grumblings of the sons of Israel; speak to them, saying, 'At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread; and you shall know that I am the LORD your God.'"
Exo 16:13 So it came about at evening that the quails came up and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp.
Deu 12:6 "And there you shall bring your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, your tithes, the contribution of your hand, your votive offerings, your freewill offerings, and the first-born of your herd and of your flock.
Deu 12:14 but in the place which the LORD chooses in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you.
Deu 12:15 "However, you may slaughter and eat meat within any of your gates, whatever you desire, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you; the unclean and the clean may eat of it, as of the gazelle and the deer.
Deu 12:16 "Only you shall not eat the blood; you are to pour it out on the ground like water.
He repeats this in verses 20- 23.
Lev 11:2 "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'These are the creatures which you may eat from all the animals that are on the earth. 3 'Whatever divides a hoof, thus making split hoofs, and chews the cud, among the animals, that you may eat.
Lev 11:9 'These you may eat, whatever is in the water: all that have fins and scales, those in the water, in the seas or in the rivers, you may eat.
Lev 11:45 'For I am the LORD, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, to be your God; thus you shall be holy for I am holy.'"
Lev 11:46 This is the law regarding the animal, and the bird, and every living thing that moves in the waters, and everything that swarms on the earth,
Lev 11:47 to make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the edible creature and the creature which is not to be eaten.
Jesus feeds the multitudes bread and fish:
Mat 14:19 And ordering the multitudes to recline on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave to the multitudes,
Jesus feeds the disciples after the resurrection:
Joh 21:13 Jesus came and *took the bread, and *gave them, and the fish likewise.
The change in food commandments (see Acts 21:25 that holds to the prohibition of not eating strangled meat or meat with its blood):
Act 10:11 and he beheld the sky opened up, and a certain object like a great sheet coming down, lowered by four corners to the ground,
Act 10:12 and there were in it all kinds of four-footed animals and crawling creatures of the earth and birds of the air.
Act 10:13 And a voice came to him, "Arise, Peter, kill and eat!"
Act 10:14 But Peter said, "By no means, Lord, for I have never eaten anything unholy and unclean."
Act 10:15 And again a voice came to him a second time, "What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy."
Act 10:16 And this happened three times; and immediately the object was taken up into the sky.
The freedom to eat anything with thankfulness to God:
1Co 10:25 Eat anything that is sold in the meat market, without asking questions for conscience' sake;
1Co 10:26 FOR THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S, AND ALL IT CONTAINS.
1Co 10:27 If one of the unbelievers invites you, and you wish to go, eat anything that is set before you, without asking questions for conscience' sake.
1Co 10:28 But if anyone should say to you, "This is meat sacrificed to idols," do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for conscience' sake;
1Co 10:29 I mean not your own conscience, but the other man's; for why is my freedom judged by another's conscience?
1Co 10:30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I slandered concerning that for which I give thanks?
1Co 10:31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
The caveat is if it's connected to idolatry in order to not cause a true Christian to not stumble (they may have come out of that very pagan religion or want nothing to do with even the appearance of connection to the pagan religions especially in front of others), again, with the prohibition of strangled meat or meat with its blood in it. It's a spiritual connection to pagan temple worship, NOT food preference of veganism. 1Cor. 8 deals with this.
Vegans think they're kind to animals by not killing them, but God has commanded the killing of certain animals TO be sin and burnt offerings to HIM. Man says it's "unholy" to nature; God says it's HOLY to HIM. Veganism denies the Fall of all creation, especially mankind and have elevated creation above the Creator, and has created a self-made religion and righteousness that is ONLY of the flesh and has no value in dealing with the indulgence of the flesh and sin nature. Their self-righteousness (including virtue signaling) is empty, without wisdom, without power to deal with the REAL problems of man, and only continues their condemnation. These are the ones that continue to rebel against God, their parents, and authority, and they are hypocrites.
