Vegetarianism and Adventism

In a letter to the Adventist Review, someone said:

Hey, of course non-vegetarians can enter heaven. But what will they eat at that long table, plentiful with fruits and vegetables? They will be very hungry.

The Bible does not picture heaven in this way.

Isa 25:6 KJV And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

Eze 39:19 KJV And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

Psa 44:11 KJV Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.

Psa 78:25 KJV Man did eat angels’ food: he sent them meat to the full.

Psa 104:27 KJV These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.

Mat 25:35 KJV For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Col 2:16 KJV Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

Rom 14:20 KJV For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.

Rom 14:17 KJV For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

The Bible’s message is not about meat.  Jesus ate meat.  The meat and drink are symbols of the heavenly feast that we can identify with.
