hi, som1 asked me: "Do animals go to heaven?" and is it wrong to "murder" (put down an animal that is dying", you know "Thy shall not murder" , does that count for animals too?

I know animals are here for our use, and i dont think they go to heaven, but i dont know specifically wher any of it is in the bible, so could som1 help me out a little in answering this guy? Thx.

Sorry to simply link off, but limited time right now... there is an alright article Do Animals Have Souls? which you may be interested to read.

Well I can answer from my own conscience for you. Killing animals isn't murder. I'm not guilty after hunting, or destroying a sick animal.


I will also answer from the Bible. God gave the animals to us for food. He said post flood, "You may eat any moving thing that lives. As I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything. But you must not eat meat with its life (that is, its blood) in it."

This would sort of be intrapment if God said go eat it, and than punished us for "murdering" the animals.

Ok, theres a movie out about this subject. it's about this dog who dies and goes to heaven, comes back to earth to settle unfinished business and goes back to heave. you may have seen it, it's called "all dogs go to heaven" so to answer your question, YES, animals go to heaven. 8) i know on this forum somewhere it has the verse that says all animals have knowledge of the father... so i guess they know God and accept God, so yes i'd think they go to heaven.

on the subject of hunting... it depends WHY you are hunting. if you do it for sport and to mount a bucks head above your fireplace, that's murder. if you do it for the food and maybe used the fur for clothing (not done so much anymore) or a blanket and you're respectful about it... like not throwing the remains in the dumpster like its nothin, then thats fine. because God said to eat the moving things...

will animals have a purpose in heaven?? maybe not...


im not sure though. If I had to guess, i would say yes, all of God's creatures go with God. tough im sure many who dont believe in the soul will disagree.


I know of no scripture that will back me up, so, its just an assumption.
Rice is great if you're really hungry and want to eat two thousand of something.
