What does the Bible say about eating meat?
Is it wrong to eat meat?
Answer: The Bible has never clearly commanded vegetarianism and eating meat is certainly permitted in New Testament times. We know that Jesus, when He appeared to his disciples after His resurrection, ate fish Luke - We also know that, under the law of Moses, an enormous number of animals were ritualistically slaughtered and offered to God by various burnt sacrifices Leviticus 1, 3 - 7. The priests were allowed to eat the meat from what they offered under certain limitations Leviticus - It is not a sin to kill an animal and then eat its meat, for God had the priests kill thousands of animals over the centuries. They represented the sacrifice of Jesus for humanity's sins in advance symbolically. Perhaps the best example of God's direct permission to eat meat comes from celebrating the Passover.
What does the Bible say about? As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls.
What does the Bible say about? Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.

Suggest a Verse
Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble. It is good not to eat meat or to drink wine, or to do anything by which your brother stumbles. But food will not commend us to God; we are neither the worse if we do not eat, nor the better if we do eat. Eat anything that is sold in the meat market without asking questions for conscience' sake;. One person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats vegetables only. The one who eats is not to regard with contempt the one who does not eat, and the one who does not eat is not to judge the one who eats, for God has accepted him.
