If Jesus said "Eat your veggies."<quoted text>
That's just a figure of speech, right?
Just about every Christian chooses his preferred theology from the menu, and gives priority to the scriptures that he thinks supports his position, while declaring contradictory scripture as being no longer valid, metaphor, not applying to him, or assigning its words ad hoc meanings.
There would be a controversy over whether he was endosing vegitarianism or cannibalizing the infirm.
Twist the Bible any way you want call everyone who disagrees with you a liar. THAT's Chrisitnaitiy.
