Chairman, International Missionary Crusade Fellowship, of Brotherhood of Cross and Star, Archbishop David Irefin, has revealed that God never ordered man to kill and eat animal adding that killing them is bringing troubles into the world.
He disclosed in a recent interview with the LeadershipNewspaper, why the General Overseer of the Church, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu, emphasizes a lot on vegetarianism.
“Vegetarianism is a divine injunction from the Almighty God (Gen 1:29). Leader Olumba Olumba Obu says there was never a time God ordered man to kill and eat animal or fish. Accordingly, all those who abide in love cannot harm any God’s creation.
All the troubles in the world that hinder the human family from knowing God and obeying Him results from eating meat and fish.
Continuous disobedience to God’s inunction will always lead to sickness, calamities, diseases and death. Leader Olumba Olumba Obu affirms that it is better to obey God and experience peace, joy, good health, eternal life and prosperity than obey angels, prophets, spirits and messengers and be condemned.
Thus, to escape God’s judgement and further calamities, the earth dwellers should embrace love and vegetarianism as way of life.” He said.
