I feel so compelled to find evidence of God's desire for us to be stewards of this earth He has entrusted to us and in searching the Bible I find wonderful verses that solidify my conviction to be a vegetarian (and maybe some day a vegan).

Genesis 1:29-30
29 Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food." And it was so.

Notice that God didn't say, "And all the beasts of the earth all the birds of the air I give you for food" He gave us seed-bearing plants and fruit with seed in it! Is this how God intended for us to eat from the very beginning?
