In the letter “‘Noah’ pro-animal, faithful to the Bible,” Kim Teague states, “The film ‘Noah’ is both pro-animal and faithful to the Bible, at least to the book of Genesis.”The book of Genesis not pro-animal.

Teague writes, “After all, Geneses 1:29 admonishes, ‘Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree that has seed-yielding fruit-to you it shall be for food.’”

Genesis 7:4 says, “Every living substance that I have made will I destroy from the face of the earth.”

Teague goes on to write, “It is only after the flood, with fruits and vegetables no longer abundant that humans got permission to eat animal flesh.”

Even then, the Bible stipulates that lives of only select animals may be taken and always with reverence and minimal cruelty.”

In Genesis 6:7 the Lord said, “I will destroy every man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast and the creeping things and the fowls of the earth for it repenteth me that I have made them.”

“…and all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man.” Genesis 7:21-23

God was sorry or regretful that he had created every living substance on the earth, so he destroyed everything: humans, animals and plants.

This is not being pro-animal or pro-life.
