1 Corinthians 10:31
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

"Then God said -'Let the land produce vegetation; seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds', and it was so." Genesis 1:11.

"And God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:12
Everything was perfect with no weeds nor blights.

"Let us make man in Our image." "In the image of God created He him. Male and female created He them ... to have dominion over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." Genesis 1:26

This dominion has subsequently been given up and someone else, namely the devil, now has it.

In Genesis 1:29 God said:
"I give you every seed-bearing plant (grains, legumes and seeds) on the face of the whole earth; and every tree that has fruit with seed in it," verse 29 (This includes nuts)

We do know that today we see only a fraction of what was originally growing on this earth. Many varieties have become extinct.

So, man's original diet was seeds, grains, nuts and fruit. Man's digestive system is geared to this type of diet! His system is very similar to that of today's fruit-eating animals. The length of the digestive tract is a strong indicator as to what type of food is normally eaten, and man's digestive tract is 12-14 times his trunk length (shoulder to hip), while fruit-eating animals is about the same.

Herbivores, such as cattle, have a gut-length some twenty times their body length, since it takes longer to digest that sort of material, because of the fiber content. The shortest tracts are, found in the carnivores - the meat-eaters. It does not take many thousands of years for a change to take place in gut lengths due to changes of diet. Recent studies have shown that this can take place over quite a short period of time.

Satan's work is to destroy or deface God's creation whenever he can. Due to the disobedience of Adam and Eve, Satan took over man's dominion of the planet, but he knows his time is short and the whole of creation has been groaning ever since. After Eve, then Adam had succumbed to Satan's temptation. God told Adam that the earth would be cursed - that it would produce thorns and thistles - and "You will eat the plants of the field." Genesis 3:18.

So, after the Fall, mankind was also permitted to eat vegetables. This was presumably because the original foods were not so often and readily available as they were before. This may have been due to the seasonal changes that took place at that time, or the diminishing levels of nutrients because of the blighted earth.

Vegetables are very rich in elemental sulfur and are good cleansers of the digestive tract. The tomato is very close to a vegetable, but not to a fruit, which grows on a tree and has a high fructose content. Vegetables also take longer to digest than the original foods given by God; the fruits, grains and seeds. It has been found and proved that if one eats vegetables at the same meal, with any of the original foods, then fermentation takes place in one's gut....This fermentation consists largely of fatty acids which have a detrimental effect on the body's immune system...

Fruits can be eaten with grains, seeds and nuts; and vegetables can be eaten with grains, seeds and nuts. Fruit is digested quickest, followed by grains, then seeds and then nuts. Vegetables take longer to digest than all these!...Even today, everything our body requires is to be found in a grain kernel. It has the carbohydrate, the protein and the essential lipids we need; all in the correct amounts and proportions." excerpts from article by Professor Walter J. Veith

3 John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Meat is high in protein and it's delicious. Mankind and his evolutionary ancestors were eating meat for hundreds of thousands of years before creation was created.

Show me the proof that God exists and that the Bible is inspired, and then we'll talk.

In the meantime, I'll stand by mainstream science in the fields of geology, astronomy, biology, etc.

There are countless sources of archeological evidence showing early man did hunt, skin and eat animals and maybe other hominids, too.

Plus, our canine teeth are specifically evolved to tear meat(like other meat eating animals), we find countless hunting weapons(arrowheads, spearheads, skinning tools), and our digestive system is capable of processing meat, meaning our GI system is evolved to eat meat because our ancient ancestors ate meat.

Well we are not living in the Old Testament now. In the New Testament many of Christians killed their best cows to celebrate different things. Jesus even fed the people fish. We are not under the old letter. I don't know why some people insist on living by the Old Testament, unless you are a Jew.

Well, yes, Jesus did feed people fish and turned water into wine. But what you have to understand is that a new special revelation came along 1800 years later on the opposite side of the world, in a country that was overrun with various prophets at the time.

We now realize that Jesus and his followers were being unhealthy and committing sins by drinking wine and eating fish. It wasn't until Ellen White put the Bible into perspective for us and gave us new, behind the scenes, never before revealed facts about God that humanity knew the truth. Now it can be told!

There is a way to prove that God exists.

The proof is in the fulfillment of prophecy as Jesus said, "Now I tell you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe that I am He." (John 13:19)

----------

Science has adopted this very method. It's the tried and true practice to test a theory against some later manifestation. If it coincides with the theory, the theory must be true and the scientist who formulated it is declared brilliant.

----------

With God, the key is finding a prophecy which was made long ago but is fulfilled before our very eyes. And the secondary key is finding among ourselves someone who honestly speaks on behalf of God, whose words come to pass.

There is, unfortunately, NO OTHER WAY TO PROVE the existence of God. It comes as no surprise therefore that God himself recommended the proof, which is proof in itself that He is! Everyone uses it and agrees the method is fool-proof.

Hey Swamp Monster, that was a secret that these poor people can't understand. What I am sure you meant to say is that people were eating meat thousands of years before "The Lord God" made Adam and Eve out of dirt and created animals for the garden. Isn't that why God gave the animals to man? Man is the highest on the food chain.

The SDA 'god' is far different than the true Christians God:

"He did not envision the taking of any animal’s life " From book called SDA's Believe...

The God that true Christians worship knows the end from the beginning!

"did not envision" -- how arrogant, these SDA's!

Bold and arrogant, they are not afraid to heap abuse on celestial beings; 11 yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not heap abuse on such beings when bringing judgment on them from[d] the Lord. 12 But these people blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish. 2 peter 2

So Ellen White contradicts the Bible and you choose her "version"?
Deu 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
Deu 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
There is more than enough evidence to prove EW a false prophet.
And you choose to accept her "revelations" although she also contradicts the Bible on many issues?
Let the Bible speak on food:
Gen 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
Lev 2:3 And the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire.
Lev 10:12 And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that remaineth of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy:
1Co 10:25 Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience.
1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,
1Ti 4:2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared,
1Ti 4:3 who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
Your real problem is that you accept a false prophet's word instead of the holy Bible which was given under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
Be honest and measure EW against the truth of Scripture.

I always like elegant simplicty! Let us shorten this passage down to see who it is that calls the Holy Spirit a liar:

The Spirit clearly says ... everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected -- 1 Tim 4

SDA's insult the Holy Spirit, and for that they are seen to have doctrines of demons, seared consciences, deceitful spirits, all of which they have devoted themselves!

Hell will be full of such.

And elegant it is. But most importantly Scripture is true. Even Mohammad claimed to be a prophet with "new" revelations contrary to Scripture. It amazes me that one can be totally blind to the obvious.

Yes. And when scripture says that SDA's who merely insult the Spirit get severer punishment, that is also true!

How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? Heb 10.29

What is it to us really, those who have already insulted Him?
