What is going on? Well all of the food we have posted are made with GMO and just exactly what is GMO?
…. A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, microorganism or other organism whose genetic makeup has been modified using recombinant DNA methods (also called gene splicing), gene modification or transgenic technology. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods… read more
Here is the part that makes it unsafe and harmful they use BACTERIA, VIRUS and other material to fill in the code. Yep your eating sickness and somehow they seem to think this is safe…. to read more of our article on GMO – What Is GMO
Whoa! Back up did that just say BACTERIA and VIRUS? Yep you read that correctly they create food using bacteria and virus among other things.
We will let you connect the dots from there. To learn more about GMO you can read our article here.
So what does God say about all of this? Should we be eating GMO, Chemical and Pesticide FoOds?
“What does the Bible say about nutrition? Should Christians emphasize a healthy diet?”
Answer: The subject of nutrition, as we think of it today, is not directly mentioned in the Bible—that is, the Bible doesn’t talk about calories and the balance of fat, protein, and carbohydrates a person needs. Neither does it mention GMOs or the benefits of eating whole foods versus processed foods, because the production of food had not yet been industrialized. Furthermore, there was no scientific understanding of the elements in food and what they do to and for the human body. However, from biblical principles we can deduce that it is beneficial and even morally right to emphasize a healthful diet.
First of all, the Bible encourages us to care for our bodies, and good nutrition is naturally part of that. God cares about man’s physical comfort and well-being (Exodus 22:27). Paul argues that, since a believer’s body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, he should flee sexually immorality, which harms the body that was bought by Christ’s blood (1 Corinthians 6:18–20). This argument can be carried over to other issues, including drug and alcohol abuse and how we treat food. Food is fuel. It is not meant to be used purely for pleasure, or we could eat nothing but chocolate and cheese pizza and be healthy. Food is meant for nutrition and good health…. more
“What does the Bible say about health?”
Answer: Good health is something we take for granted—until we start to lose it. When our health takes a downturn, we quickly begin to question our habits and diet. God has designed the human body so that it is a finely tuned instrument that is the most resilient on earth. It can endure fractures and adhesions, constant pain and great stretches of tedium.
However, it is a fragile instrument because it is not built to handle excess, whether in the form of nourishment, fuel or additives. Unlike machines, it chokes on poisons when ingested in unending doses and mistaken for fuel. Though it has moving, feeling and thinking parts, they can be misused. God has provided us with an “owner’s manual” that tells us how to operate the human body. That manual is the Bible, a book that contains instructions for proper maintenance. Although it isn’t a medical text, it is God’s Word, and in its pages He reveals many basic principles for good physical, mental, and spiritual health…. more
There is sickness on the increase and for the first time it is not expected for people to live longer. In America we are programmed for gluttony or better known as, more is better. Food is portrayed as a friend, comfort, entertainment, etc. Food became all those and my god. I used food to help me emotionally until I was tired of being physically sick all the time. I prayed for God to change my heart, mind, forgive my gluttony, and teach me to see food for the purpose He created it. God sees our love affair with food as;
—-> Gluttony <—-
To truly understand gluttony and its consequences we must go to the bible. God tells us why we are to respect our bodies and how. If we do not eat to glorify God then we are eating out of sin. It is that simple, but I made it so hard because I did not want to change and I did not want to stop eating what I wanted. I did choose and I am so glad I did but now I am in the healing stage of all the junk I put in my body. I Thanked my loving God for His Grace and for Helping me to be set FREE from my gluttony!!!
“Is gluttony a sin? What does the Bible say about overeating?”
Answer: Gluttony seems to be a sin that Christians like to ignore. We are often quick to label smoking and drinking as sins, but for some reason gluttony is accepted or at least tolerated. Many of the arguments used against smoking and drinking, such as health and addiction, apply equally to overeating. Many believers would not even consider having a glass of wine or smoking a cigarette but have no qualms about gorging themselves at the dinner table. This should not be!
Proverbs 23:20-21 warns us, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.” Proverbs 28:7 declares, “He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.” Proverbs 23:2 proclaims, “Put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.” … more
I Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God with your body.… Berean Study Bible
