Thanks for your point that the Kosher (Jewish) dietary laws and killing methods are NOT biblical.  Most are traditions of Men! 

The Rabbinical (Modern Day Jewish) tradition is far more intricate than just literally following what the Bible says in Leviticus 11. There are ritual laws about slaughtering, preparation and separation not expounded on in the Bible. Many find these rabbinical rules unnecessary restriction that are difficult to follow. However, it is important to caution about throwing out the baby with the bath water. There are deep and significant reasons for the way many Jews treat the food they consume.

For instance, observant Jews will only buy their meats from a kosher butcher. The reason is that the kosher butcher is trained to slaughter an animal in the most humane manner possible and inflicting the least amount of pain. He knife used is so extremely sharp that even one slight nick in the blade renders it useless. The reasoning for such care in slaughter is that the animal – one of God’s creation – gave its life to sustain ours. So we treat it with the utmost respect and care. No animal that has a blemish or defect may be eaten. There are laws explaining how an animal should be slaughtered in the Bible. So how do we know what to do? The rabbinical teaching instructs us. Another much discussed rabbinical tradition is not to mix milk and meat products. The verse “You shall not boil a kid in its milk” (Deuteronomy 14:21) is more an act of compassion toward the animal than of eating. It does not state in the Bible why God commanded this. The rabbinical tradition interprets and explains the reasoning for this commandment as a safeguard fence around committing sin. Without the rabbinical teaching and writings some of the Torah is a mystery.

The stringent restrictions placed on the dietary laws through the rabbinical tradition could be viewed as overly and rigid and needless. The traditions regarding the use of separate dishes, utensils, cookery, and even refrigerators to separate milk from eat products are viewed as excessive by many Jews today, except the Orthodox. However, since the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem, these laws and traditions are what kept the Jewish people a separate and distinct nation among the nations where they sojourned...

Just read the Bible. and in Genesis we read this:  Isaac said, “I am now an old man and don’t know the day of my death. Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me. Prepare me the kind of tasty food I like and bring it to me to eat, so that I may give you my blessing before I die.”

When one hunts with a bow, the animal is KILLED, then bled.......  Not Kosher, but BIBLICAL!

Genesis 27:3 ESV / 167 helpful votes

Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me,

One can not walk up to a deer in the wild and slit its throat!  It is OK to kill the animal first and then bleed it by hanging it after..

Killing animals in the Biblical way, does not lead to suffering.  If done properly, and I admit, it probably isn't always the case, the animal should die very quickly. I would like to point out, however, that those who are the most concerned with the ways animals are being slaughtered (like PETA) take no stand on how our children are being slaughtered! Called abortion, especially late term abortions...

Europe, THE BEAST of Revelation is rising (Ironically Denmark itself is one of the lost tribes of Israel {Dan} but is a part of the Holy Roman Empire to come again!


Denmark bans halal and kosher slaughter...

'Animal rights come before religion'...
