Is going back to original diet – Vegetarian diet Biblical?

 Spirit of Prophecy never says anything which is not in harmony with scriptures.  Is Going back to original diet Biblical? Through out the Bible we can see the principles of going back to the blue print.

  • Divorce is not in God’s original plan.

Though He allowed it He calls them to the original plan for marriage. Matthew 19 3The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 4And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,5And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

  • Polygamy is not in God’s original plan.

But Patriarchs like Abraham, Jacob and David did it. But in New testament God calls them to original plan of monogamy. To David Nathan says.. And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.2 Samuel 12: 8 (He has given wives to David) But he calls back to the original plan. Ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee. If any be blameless, the husband of one wife Titus 1:5,6 (Margin) Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. 1 Timothy 3:12 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach 1 Timothy 3:2

  • Meat Eating is allowed because of man’s lust. But God calls back to original diet.

But after the fall, men chose to follow their own sinful desires; and as the result, crime and wretchedness rapidly increased……. They delighted in destroying the life of animals; and the use of flesh for food rendered them still more cruel and blood-thirsty, until they came to regard human life with astonishing indifference. PP 92

 The human family has been growing more and more self-indulgent, until health has been most successfully sacrificed upon the altar of lustful appetite. The inhabitants of the Old World were intemperate in eating and drinking. They would have flesh-meats, although God had given them no permission to eat animal food. TSDF 62

The people who lived before the flood ate animal food, and gratified their lusts until their cup of iniquity was full, and God cleansed the earth of its moral pollution by a flood. After the flood the people ate largely of animal food. God saw that the ways of man were corrupt, and that he was disposed to exalt himself proudly against his Creator, and to follow the inclinations of his own heart.  4aSG 121

Further Ellen White writes in the same passage “He did not prohibit their eating meat” As Ellen White writes since they were already perverting their diet with meat He allowed them to eat but only animals which will be healthy to eat i.e., clean animals. Now in Isaiah 65 He tells that He wants to go back to original diet. 17For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. (this is not the new heaven which and new earth which comes after 1000 years) 20There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die a hundred years old; but the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed. (see there will be death and sinner. In new heaven which and new earth which comes after 1000 years there won’t be death and sinner) 23They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. (There won’t be Child birth in new heaven) Now see this… 25The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD. If god wants Wolf and Lion to go back to vegetarian diet what about humans….

    Again in Isa 22: 12And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth: 13And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to-morrow we shall die. 14And it was revealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord GOD of hosts. Bible say it is an iniquity to eat flesh when God wants us to afflict ourselves to receive the sealing of God. Read Lev 23. 27-29, isa 22.12-14, Eze 9.4-8 & Rev 7.3-4. In Isaiah God calls this as iniquity. Now is the day of atonement when God wants Adventist to sigh and cry for the Adventist church and the world.
