In Genesis chapter 9 it states this.
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.
6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man
So does this mean that god gave permission to kill any animal for food? But after that he states not to eat flesh that has blood and life. Does that mean you should not eat the animal alive or not eat it at all? If so doesn't that contradict my first question?
And what does he mean in verse 5 and 6?
