CHRISTIANITY

  • Christianity began about two thousand years ago and is now practised by many people throughout the world.
  • Christians believe in one God who created the universe and gave people rules to live their lives by, as written down in the Holy Bible.
  • Christians believe that the Son of God was born as a human being named Jesus Christ (which means Saviour).
  • Jesus was a wise teacher and healer who travelled the land telling people about God.  He taught that God loves everyone and that people should love God and love one another.
  • At the age of thirty-three Jesus was put to death on a cross by powerful men who were afraid of his influence.  Christians believe that by his death Jesus offered people God’s forgiveness for their sins.  They also believe that three days after his execution God raised Jesus from the dead.
  • Christians believe Jesus gave his followers the Holy Spirit to help and guide them.
  • Christians meet together in churches on Sundays to praise God, to pray, and to learn about Jesus.

Christianity

"Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of the tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."

Genesis 1:29

Although there are many references in the Bible to caring for animals and living humanely, the overriding influence on Christian attitudes to animals has been the Biblical story of creation – that human beings were created in the image of God and given dominion over the rest of creation. This human centred view of the world has led to the wholesale exploitation of the earth and the seas; the extinction of many species of animals and plants; and very cruel and immoral practices involving untold numbers of animals. Scholars of ancient Hebrew tell is that the word "dominion" has been wrongly translated, and the real meaning is responsible stewardship and guardianship, which shows we were meant to care for nature and the animal kingdom, living in harmony with it – not dominating and exploiting it.
