“I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food” (Genesis 1:29)
That was God’s instruction to Adam and Eve, the first man and woman according to the Old Testament. So, in a perfect world, people didn’t eat animals? At least, up until the flood, everyone were vegetarians? As many times as I’ve read Genesis, I’ve always missed that.
