Boy, God sure did want me out of Blogdom this past weekend! I’ve had all sorts of computer problems. Anyway, hope all my fellow country-women are having a wonderful Fourth, thanking God for our heritage. If anyone can forward me info concerning the Founding Fathers and Christianity, I would appreciate it.
I have been watching Kent Hovind’s seminar on DVD this past week. I find Creation science to be fascinating and comforting. I believe in God’s Word, and I love to hear people prove it scientifically. Of course I don’t blindly agree with everything he says, and that is the topic for today.
Health and Nutrition for the Christian.
Does God want us to eat certain things for our health? Does eating foods talked about in the Bible guarantee health? IMHO…….
Does the Bible mention food? Yes. Were Adam and Eve vegetarians? Yes but they were also nudists. So if you want to follow their example, go right ahead, but please don't post any photos!
Is pork bad for you? Meat? Bread? ( Jesus said "I am the Bread of life") Salt? Fat? Sugar? Hmmmmm…..
Here is what I know. God says in his Word that sin makes you sick, godliness makes you healthy. Here are just a few I got from Bible Gateway, there are many, many more.
1. Psalm 67:2That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
2. Proverbs 3:8It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
3. Proverbs 4:22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
4. Proverbs 12:18There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
5. Proverbs 13:17A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.
6. Proverbs 16:24Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Whats more, I find these verses very interesting.
1 Timothy4:13 1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
Now read Psalm 38 when David is sick because of his sin with Bathsheba.
Confession is not only good for the soul, its good for the body.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that all illness is from sin. What I am saying is that health is not from food. Health is from God. God is not likely to share his glory with a nutritionist or the food pyramid. He wants us to be in tune with Him.
I believe we should look more closely to our relationship with God for health and well-being.
I will do another post later on about non-sin-related illness.
Blessings and Joy and Health from the Father,
