The Killing of Animals in the Bible

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

Note: The purpose of the references that I am citing from the Bible which shows the killing of animals is not at all to be used by Muslims in order to discredit the Bible. The only purpose of it is for Muslims to use it as self defense just in case a bunch of Christians decided to make a fuss about the killing of animals in Islam just like this Christian has done in his following articles.....

If God ordered the killing of certain animals in certain contexts for certain reasons in the Old Testament then why can't that apply to Islam as well? This is something you Muslims need to ask those Christians that attack Islam just like how that Christian did in those articles of his.  

Here are the verses from the Bible................

 

Genesis 6:5-8

 5 The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. 6 The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. 7 So the LORD said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air—for I am grieved that I have made them." 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.

Why is God punishing the animals for man's sins?

 

Exodus 20:24 

    24 " 'Make an altar of earth for me and sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, [b] your sheep and goats and your cattle. Wherever I cause my name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you.

and 

Leviticus 23:12

12 On the day you wave the sheaf, you must sacrifice as a burnt offering to the LORD a lamb a year old without defect,

Why does God want the lamb to be burned? Can't an ordinary sacrifice (cutting of the neck) be sufficient enough instead of burning the animals to death?

 

Exodus 29:16-18

16 Slaughter it and take the blood and sprinkle it against the altar on all sides. 17 Cut the ram into pieces and wash the inner parts and the legs, putting them with the head and the other pieces. 18 Then burn the entire ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering to the LORD, a pleasing aroma, an offering made to the LORD by fire.

A little bit too graphic huh?

 

1 Samuel 15:3

3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy [a] everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.' "

Also read how in Islam we must be very careful when it comes to sacrificing animals here...... http://www.drzakirnaik.com/Features/QAOnIslam/tabid/56/Default.aspx (CLICK ON QUESTION NUMBER 7)
