All-Creatures Ministry and Web Site
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 10 Mar 2008

Dear Nicodemus:

It's nice to hear from you.

The most important thing about convincing other people about any issue, particularly with following Jesus and concerning animal issues is for us to be credible witnesses.

God's original and heavenly intent was for all of His living beings to eat only a plant based diet. All of the mistreatment of animals began with the Fall and the eating of flesh, so we need to be vegan and not wear any animal products, so others won't think of us as hypocrites.

We need to help people relate to animals as individuals, with wants and fears and desires very much like ours. Once people begin to see other animals as fellow living souls, it is much easier to get them to become part of the program.

We also need to help people have true love, compassion, and empathy for all living beings, whether they are humans or non-humans. We need to be the peacemaking children of God that Jesus calls us to be (Matthew 5:9), and of whom Paul tells us will free the whole of creation from it's present corruption (Romans 8:18-23).

We hope this helps as a starting point for your ministry.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
