The Christian Vegetarian Association holds that the Holy Spirit inspires us to live according to our deepest, faith-based values — our "calling." We find that Christians care, often deeply, about world hunger, human well-being, the environment, and animals. Since a plant-based diet helps address these concerns, we see it as an opportunity to honor God.
