Q. A vegetarian friend of mine tries to convince me that drinking cow's milk is unnatural. Mankind is the only creature that drinks the milk of another species, he says. Does the Bible say anything about drinking milk?
A. Nineteen (19) times in Scripture, God describes the "GOOD land," the
land of promise, as "a land flowing with MILK and honey." "I will GIVE it unto you... a land that floweth with milk and honey,"
God says in Lev 20:24 (cp Deut 27:3). And James 1:17 says everything God GIVES is good and perfect.
God wouldn't use a bad metaphor in His perfect, inerrant Word.
Isaiah 55:1 says, "Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money, come, buy wine and MILK without money and without price."
1 Corin 3:2 "I have fed you with milk..." Paul writes, under the unction of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corin 9:7 says, "...who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the MILK of the flock?"
Hebrews 5:12 "...ye have need... of MILK..."
1 Peter 2:2 "As newborn babes, desire the sincere MILK of the word, that ye may grow thereby."
Yes, I'm convinced God's Word really does say something about just about everything.
