Is It Sinful to Neuter Animals?

Full Question

Is it sinful to neuter animals?

Answer

Animals are not made in the image and likeness of God. Our treatment of them is guided by the principle of being a good steward of God’s creation. Neutering is therefore not a moral issue for animals.

  1. Yes but God this said for ALL species, not just Man, “Be fruitful and multiply”..that would make me question..He (God)said for fowl,fish and everything that creepeth to fill the Earth. If God had wanted a limit,he would have created an “off button”..
