Return to Eden

My dad enjoys reading Chuck Missler online at Koinonia House, and recently, Missler posted a news item that is SO incredible, I have to share. This article "Straw-Eating Lions and Vegetarian Cats" is about a cat named Dante and a lionness named Little Tyke, neither of whom eat meat. Apparently, cats aren't supposed to be able to live without meat in their diet; yet, this cat is thriving. The same is true for the lion. As the article states, these two creatures "are not freaks of nature; they are reminders of how nature was meant to be," a return to the way animals were in the Garden of Eden. I've grown up knowing about Isaiah 11:6-7: The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox." But to see this part of God's Word become reality in my lifetime is just awesome!
