Why Did God Allow Animal Sacrifice For Christianity And Islam But Not Sikhism?


Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji ki fateh

Hello fellow Sikhs,

I am a Sikh recently whom has had his faith re ignited and I've been contemplating God a lot but there's one issue I can't seem to understand.

We as Sikhs accept that prophets from other religions have been on Earth (I think) so that is stating that their religious practices hold some sort of relative validation in terms of their pursuit of God. In Christianity and Islam, God allowed sacrificing of animals in his name and allowed the eating of meat. Whereas in our religion all meat is forbidden and the cruelty of animals and slaughtering of them is forbidden. So why did Waheguru allow animal sacrificing in the past but made an exception now for our religion?

This is just something I've been thinking about and would appreciate it if some of you could share your input!

Another long winded off topic post. Lets get back on topic. Sikhi (dharam) doesn't allow sacrifices because all of creation is Vaheguru's. He created it and owns it. No part of creation can provide him with something because it's all his from the beginning.

Vegetarian eat the meat of insects in there fruits and vegetables. Vegatarians don't know insects live in there food like grain and corn and potatoes onions, etc. Vegatarians drink fruit juices which has many insects in the juice. Vegatarians just can't see the insects because the processing plants does a really good job of grinding everything down and packing it for Vegatarians consumers.

Edit: Poster harsharan is lost in his self loathing again and can't seem to read why I speak of vegetarianism. When he is done stroking his ego, he can read the following quote copied and pasted from the person who started this thread.

Whereas in our religion all meat is forbidden and the cruelty of animals and slaughtering of them is forbidden.

Hence I wrote about vegetarianism. Also, I am a vegetarian. Poster harsharan likes to make assumptions(saying I am trying to justify my so called meat eating habits) of those who point out his shortcomings and show others he is not a Sant.

Too much of ego, thus there is more noise then actual nuts, in reality.

The topic is, of why other dharmas like christianity and islam are allowed by god to sacrifice animals, but not sikhi.

Thus the topic is not of attacking vegetarians, just because one is a meat eater, and so to justify one´s sense of guilty, it is better to divert the attention on the other side.

Anyway, NavdeepSingh74 gives an explanation with solid foundation, thus is much more credible and valid, than sheer empty words.

A positive person sees goodness, almost in all; while a negative person just vomits the negativity contained within, and sees faults with almost everyone.

There is no doubt, there is a lot of potential, but in the end it all depends on how we use it, whether in being humble, good and helpful, or, egoistic, negative and destructive.

Sat Sree Akal.

In the Sikh Rehat Maryada, we are allowed to eat meat.

Also, it's important to note that in Christianity, animal sacrifice is necessary, not just allowed.

Being allowed to do something just means you won't be punished, there are various recommendations, like the Maryada doesn't explicitly say: "Don't be a Manmukh"; however, it's implied not to be.

Then where does it say that you will be punished for eating meat?

Did you read what I wrote? "Being allowed to do something just means you WON'T be punished, there are various recommendations," what is it that you don't understand?
