This is the theory which has permeated every aspect of life ever since creating an animal dependent society. It accounts for the attitudes of indifference with which not only Christians but the general public regards animals. It brings up the question which can hardly be avoided of whether it is following in the footsteps of Jesus to be cruel to animals or is this not the path which was paved with the theories of Aristotle? For Christians who insist that they are not cruel people, can it be considered anything other than cruel to participate in using animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, and household items, including hand soap, which have been tortured, treated horribly, and inhumanely killed in producing those products? For Christians, the correct question to ask must surely be, What would Jesus do, not What would Aristotle do.
