Meanwhile, there has long been a revolution in the natural science of the world – with the founders of quantum physics, most notably Max Planck and Werner Heisenberg. They have not only overcome the materialism of past centuries, but also the ecclesiastical image of the world that separates everything that belongs together: God and the universe, body and soul, matter and spirit. Physicists, in contrast to theologians, claim that matter is not reality, but only a manifestation of our senses, that not even the smallest particle of matter can be found on the “ground” of the microcosm, but an oscillating field that has the ability to “materialize”. encompasses the entire universe. In fact, it reads: “Basically, everything is a spirit.” (Hans-Peter Dürr)

These insights are consistent with the message of the Spirit of God given to mankind today through the Prophetic Word of our time. “You know, each of you is a compressed universe, but the universe is a Bit – it is an eternal homeland, a sea of ​​light, God. If you live in the flow of the universe, you are the Bit of the universe (().

The second revelation of Christ God, given according to the Prophetic Word of today and written in the book “This is My Word”, reports on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth in much more detail than in the official church texts of the Bible. It turns out that the Nazarene taught a completely different attitude towards animals than we are accustomed to within the framework of the so-called church tradition. He said, “Be considerate, benevolent, compassionate, and kind not only to your equals, but also to every creation that is under your protection; for you are to them like gods to whom they raise their gaze in their misfortune. Beware of anger because many sin in anger, but when the anger subsides, they regret it. Never kill an animal for your own personal benefit. See, nature, life, the Creator cares for you. May the fruits of fields, gardens and forests be enough for you. ”Many examples of Nazareth’s love of animals are published in this book. Particularly impressive is the following: “Jesus went to Jerusalem and met a camel with a heavy load of firewood. The camel could not pull its load ashore, but the hound cruelly beat and abused it, but could not move the animal out of place. When Jesus saw it, he said to him, “Why are you beating your brother?” The man replies: I didn’t know he was my brother. Isn’t an animal created to serve me? Jesus said, “Did not the same God create an animal out of the same substance and your children who serve you, and did they not both receive the same breath from God?”

It is up to everyone whether they will accept this message and what they will do with it. His basic thought is direct and clear: The same breath pervades the animal and man – the breath of God. It is the same cosmic power that sustains all living beings. If individual species are at different evolutionary stages, it does not mean that a living being standing at the highest stage of development can push others off the ladder. Adequate life protection belongs to life at every stage of development: the animal has the right to life, the right to development appropriate to its species, and the right not to be abused and not deprived of its dignity.

For today, this may sound utopian or even disturbing. Due to the biblical-ecclesiastical disparagement of animals, we have suppressed all voices of Western spiritual history, which reads differently: e.g. Pythagoras (570 – 497/96 BC), one of the founders of Greek philosophy, warned his contemporaries not to harm delicate plants or innocent animals; Plutarch (50-125) opposed cruelty to animals and also the consumption of their meat; the Roman consul Cato (124 – 149 BC) advocated the principle: “No one should treat living beings as tools!”; a friend of nature and animals, Goethe (1749–1832) sang on the West-East Divan: “When I wanted to kill a spider, I thought if I really had to do it. Has not God intended for him to participate in these days? ”; the philosopher Leibnitz (1646–1716) was able to fully imagine that the “rights” of animals were envisaged; and many others.

The universal genius of the West, Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519), spoke particularly clearly: “The day will come when we will condemn the consumption of meat in the same way as we condemn the consumption of our equals today, cannibalism
