Rise, kill and eat!

And I heard a voice saying to me, ‘Rise, Peter, kill and eat.’ But I said, ‘Not so Lord!’ For nothing common or unclean has at any time entered my mouth.’ But the voice answered me again from heaven, ‘What God has cleansed you must not call common.’   Acts 11:7-9

When was the last time you rose, killed, and ate? In other words, when was the last time you caught your own meat, cleaned it, and cooked it? What about your children? Acts 11:7-9 is one of many verses that make it clear God wants us to participate in His creation. Being wise rulers over God’s creation means we need to be involved with it, finding a balance between overexploiting and overprotecting. If you don’t know how to catch, clean and cook something, there are thousands of helpful resources out there. Here are a couple of videos I made on the subject:

Now rise Christian, kill and eat with your family and friends!

    Thank you for such a cool video! It takes the fear out of filleting fish ourselves and was amazing to see the stomach contents and the lens! God Bless,MMJ

      You’re welcome! Every time I clean a fish and my daughter is around, she ALWAYS asks, “Can I see the lens?”, “What’s in it’s stomach?”. And every time I acknowledge her requests, I am still just as fascinated as ever at the incredible design and purpose found in His creation.

    Your point is valid from other passages, but Acts 11 is not about the food, rather about Peter accepting Gentiles.

      Hi Lori,
      Thank you for your comment! It is definitely about Peter accepting Gentiles, but it is definitely about killing and eating animals, too, as this was a big part of Peter accepting the Gentiles. In today’s world, there’s a lot of anti-hunting, anti-fishing nonsense promoted by certain groups. We are shifting more towards the “creature worship” that Paul warns about in Romans 1. We need to remember that it is perfectly acceptable to God to “rise, kill and eat” in a responsible and sustainable manner. And, acceptance into the body of Christ is not contingent on one’s opinions about hunting and fishing.
      God bless,
