What does God think about the recent shooting of Cecil the Lion?
It just so happens there is a passage in the Bible that relates to this issue. Let's check it out:
But David said to Saul, “Your servant was tending his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock, I went out after him and attacked him, and rescued [it] from his mouth; and when he rose up against me, I seized [him] by his beard and struck him and killed him. “Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, since he has taunted the armies of the living God.” And David said, “The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” – 1 Samuel 17:34-38
Now if killing animals is a sin, then why did the Lord God deliver David from certain death by supernaturally assisting this young lad to slay these four-legged marauders? Aw, did that ruin your “God hates killing animals” fairy tale?

"In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife." - Ted Nugent
Here are some questions for the Anti-Hunter who would try to use the Bible to back up their bogus claims.
Who killed the first animal according to the Bible?
Is there one verse in the Scripture that condemns hunting?
Was Jesus really a vegetarian hippie?
Would a loving God use hunting illustrations to communicate divine truth to His people?
Did God preserve the animals on Noah’s Ark for the purpose of having them eaten by mankind?
Did killing predators give David the confidence that he could kill the Philistine’s champion, Goliath?
Does “Thou shall not kill” mean that one shouldn’t go quail hunting or catch and eat a bass?
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created.
“I am celebrating the release of Doug’s new book by taking a bunch of young boys and girls along with a bunch of American military warriors and their families on numerous hunting trips this spring for wild turkeys, of which there are more today than when Columbus first landed here, and on our annual wild pig slaughter from helicopters with machineguns." - Ted Nugent
