not hurt nor destroy
65:25 not hurt nor destroy. This future state of the animal kingdom is evidently presented as the ideal state. This fact can only mean that there was no struggle for existence and survival of the fittest in the animal world as originally created. The evolutionary scenario, postulating a billion years of animal suffering and death before man evolved, is thus utterly false and even blasphemous, charging God with deliberately creating such a monstrous system as His means of producing men and women. Note also Isaiah 11:6-9.
