So I went and fed the donkey. And as he's eating his carrot like Huck Fin eating a corn cob, the thought of man's "animalistic tendencies" crossed my mind. He was very serious about his eating and I have seen people with teeth like that, so there are some resemblances. But can the animals really be blamed for what is man's choice? In some ways animals do resemble us and we, in turn, love our pets, but are they able to sin? If they are a body without a soul then there is no soul to be cast into Hell for their sins. Humans on the other hand know what they do, are made in the image of God, and choose their actions. We were given the ten commandments, and told "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength." If this is the same for the animals where is there 10 commandments, or should they just read ours?
