A question many of us ‘furbaby parents’ ask of our beloved pet…
Do Animals Go To Heaven?
I’ve done a little research to comfort my own heartache and found these quotes from religious leaders:
The Lord’s concern for animal life is revealed in Luke 12:6, where he states that of the sparrows that are sold, “not one of them is forgotten before God.”
The tenth President of the Church, Joseph Fielding Smith, has also expressed concern for animal welfare. In 1928, as an apostle, he stated in a general conference of the Church: “So we see that the Lord intends to save, not only the earth and the heavens, not only man who dwells upon the earth, but all things which he has created. The animals, the fishes of the sea, the fowls of the air, as well as man, are to be recreated, or renewed, through the resurrection, for they too are living souls.” (Conference Report, October 1928, p. 100.) [The Gospel & Animals]
This is a commission I finished this weekend. I really enjoyed painting this and connecting with the spirit of sweet ‘Snoopy’, in the arms of our loving Savior Jesus Christ. ♥
