Rick Gerhardt :: Is animal death a part of God’s plan?

  • There is little to be said about plant and animal death before creation. Rick Gerhardt, Biologist and Christian Apologist, explains that there is a difference between human death and the death of animals and vegetation. “Life without death is a life without reproduction, digestion, movement, and increase in numbers.” While the Bible does make it clear that human death came into the world through a man, Scripture does not necessarily view animal death as a negative process. As an Ecologist, Rick says that death is a natural part of life. “Death is a good thing, given God’s perfect purposes for this universe which is the conquering of sin in the lives of free will creatures in order that he may have loving relationships with us for all eternity.”
