In 1 Peter 2:1 when it talks about ''laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings'' the Greek word there for ''laying aside'' is ''apotithemi'' which can mean ''to make a way'' as in finding a way when there seems to not be one. And it also can mean ''to make out of'', to create from the hypocrisies, guile, envies, evil speakings and so forth. That is, to make good out of them or for good out of them. Also to ''make for one's use'', or for one's advantage in the truth - the lifestyle, defense or culmination thereof; or to ''lay aside for a later time'', which can represent wisdom of prevention or invention or discovery. And it can also mean to ''lay on'' or ''combine''. We can learn from these things and from people's hypocrisies and lies to better ourselves! And it also can mean to ''establish'' or to ''fit, fix or place in'' - to relativize those things into truth or for truth. - Joshua Aaron Guillory

We have to be realistic in terms of people still eating meat and people becoming vegan and neither one trying to judge the other for their lives. At least when we can find a solution to preserve the animals and clone or create meat for those who feel they have to eat meat, which at that time financial reasons will not exist. Or some time further on! And vegans will be able to live more easily in their lifestyle in terms of numbers. No person who desires to be vegan will have to worry about the knowledge, money or resources to make it possible! I've lived enough vegetarian, vegan, and omnivorous to know that you don't lose your enlightenment for eating meat. In someways you could actually evolve beyond people who are vegetarian or vegan, and vice versa. As long as your intention is good and to be and get to the truth, you will always discover and manifest the truth in someway, in some degree, somehow! - Joshua Aaron Guillory

We must go through all levels of enlightenment! I'm so glad I went back to eating meat on my journey of enlightenment, by natural means of course, because it helped me be free of the prison of thinking that I would lose some part of my spirituality by doing so. When I was living as a vegetarian, because I was dwelling in houses with people who were eating meat and fussing and things of that nature, I used to get so mad at them sometimes for not being what I thought was spiritually higher. And although my desire is to be full vegan, or at least some period of time if not all times, or something lighter than that, I am free to understand and take the good out of everything for the spiritual purpose of world peace. I'm able to relate and not judge people for eating meat and so on! I stopped being a consistent vegetarian a few years back. I used to hate or be disgusted at the thought of ever again eating meat! - Joshua Aaron Guillory
