  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Genesis 1
    Hello Gabriel Are you referring to how society treats animals, as in abuse? I do not believe that animals should be abused. However, I do not think that they are on the level as human. If a person is caught abusing them they should not be handed a Federal indictment. A fine and or community work is sufficient. We are to be good stewards over the things that God has given us dominion over. Does this mean that we cannot kill them for food and clothing? The answer is no. Those people who view animals on the level of human need to understand that animals have no souls. In Genesis 2 7, Adam was the one that God breathe in his nostrils the breath of life and he became a living soul. When Noah built the Ark and the animals and the Noah, his wife, and their three sons and their son s wives entered the Ark the scripture states that only 8 souls were saved. This scripture is significant because it denotes the fact that God recognized the humans with souls and the animals did not have souls. If animals had souls then God would have had it written that every soul in the Ark was saved instead of distinguishing that only 8 were saved. 1 Peter 3 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
