1. Reading the Bible and killing animals

    You can read also Bible. That is nice. We do not say that don't read Bible. Read something, but learn something. Jesus Christ said, "Thou shall not kill." You learn this art. But you read Bible and kill animals, then what is your benefit? First of all try to understand that you read Christ and you violate his order, then what is the use of reading? You follow. Then that is reading.
