In Reference to: Man's Role with Animals According to the Bible

Dear Ken:

Thank you very much for sending us these comments. They are very encouraging. Cat did write an excellent piece, and we hope that you looked at some of the other 70,000 documents we have on our web site that are there to help us all live a more compassionate lifestyle.

We also consider ourselves to be soulmates, and we understand your feelings.

Actually, in the garden Adam (man) did give his wife a name, Ishshah (woman) because she was really part of him, Ish (man), which to us is showing that he also considered her to be is soulmate. It was only after the Fall that he also gave her the name Eve. Remember that the word 'womb' is an English word and not Hebrew, as in the names mentioned here.

The Bible also doesn't say that any blood was shed or that any animal died to clothe Adam and Eve. All the passage says is that God made garments and clothed them, which most likely He made just like He made everything else He created. We hope this makes you feel better.

We look forward to hearing from you again.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
