In last week’s Health Tip, in an article titled “Health Is A Matter Of Choice,” I began this series by saying:
“Many in the Christian community believe that God governs everything that happens in their lives, including whether they get sick or remain healthy! Some even believe that their health, and even the time of their death, is totally out of their control and totally in God’s hands! I personally reject that kind of thinking, because my Bible tells me that God wants us to ‘be in health!’ (3 John 2)”Then I concluded last week’s Health Tip with these words:
“The Standard American Diet” (SAD) is Satan's alternative diet (SAD)! You will find the SAD diet is comprised almost completely of items that were not found in God’s Genesis 1:29 diet. This SAD diet is the cause of almost every physical problem (other than accidents) man experiences during his or her lifetime. When a man or woman CHOOSES to reject the SAD, and to consume God’s Genesis 1:29 diet, that person almost always sees their physical problems simply disappear, and they don’t get sick anymore.”I laid the foundation for this series by showing how God designed His human creation to be nourished. Today, I will show you that not only is almost every food item found in the Standard American Diet (SAD) not found in God’s Genesis 1:29 diet, but show also how the foods found in the SAD are the cause of almost every physical problem being experienced in both the Christian and non-Christian communities today. In Deuteronomy 30:19 God offered the Israelites an opportunity to choose one or the other of two choices He had set before them. It was a choice that would determine the Israelites future destiny:
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”Today I am going to do just that — set before you a choice between life and death, blessing and cursing. I am going to show how the foods you choose to eat, will determine whether you “live in health” or sickness — I implore you to choose foods that will bring you and your family life and health, rather than sickness and an early grave. I am going to implore you to “CHOOSE LIFE, THAT BOTH THOU AND THY SEED MAY LIVE.”
Your Body Is A Living Organism Comprised Of Living CellsThe physical body (temple) God designed man’s soul and spirit to reside in during its earthly life experience, is a living organism, comprised of living cells! In Genesis 2:7 we learn that:
“The LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.”This living organism, comprised of living cells was designed by God to be nourished with living (raw) foods — the diet God told man he was to consume in Genesis 1:29 — RAW fruits, RAW vegetables, RAW seeds, and RAW nuts! All cooked foods are dead foods, because any food heated to temperatures that exceed 122 degrees have had their enzymes destroyed by the heat, and that heat converts a living (raw) food to a dead food! Life begets (produces) life! Death, or dead food, cannot produce life, nor can dead food properly nourish or sustain a living organism comprised of living cells. The SAD diet is comprised almost 100% of dead (cooked) food! There is something very seriously wrong with the SAD diet most people are consuming today. Do you think the fact that we are trying to nourish a living organism, comprised of living cells, with dead food, might have something to do with the physical problems almost every man, woman, and child is experiencing today? Every animal in the wild, whether carnivorous or vegetarian, since creation to this present day, instinctively consumes all foods in their natural raw and living form. Animals in the wild to this present day are far wiser than we humans when it comes to what they consume for nourishment. The consumption of cooked foods has corrupted man’s natural instincts, instincts that were possessed by Adam and Eve and those early humans. Let me suggest dear reader that you take out a pen or pencil and on a piece of paper write down everything you ate in the past 24 hours. If the average person, Christian or non-Christian did that, they would be amazed to find that their diet is comprised of almost 100% dead food. And then remember the words of Scripture found in Galatians 6:7:
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Man's Digestive System Depends On FiberGod, in His infinite wisdom, designed man with a very extensive (lengthy) digestive tract, containing many pockets, loops, and bends. This lengthy digestive system was designed by God to extract all the nutrients possible from the raw plant-source foods God told man in Genesis 1:29 he was to consume for food. God, in His infinite wisdom, also knew that if this food did not move rapidly through this lengthy digestive system it would putrefy (rot) in its almost 100 degree atmosphere (man’s body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit). And so God placed in all raw, plant-source foods abundant fiber. All raw, plant-source foods contain fiber! This fiber causes food to move efficiently through that lengthy digestive tract, before it has time to putrefy (rot). The SAD diet is almost totally devoid of fiber. For instance, there is no fiber in anything of animal origin. Nor is there any fiber in refined sugar; nor is there any fiber in refined white flour; nor in oils and fats; nor in table salt or caffeine; nor in soda pop, beer, wine, or even water. These fiberless substances make up almost 100% of the average persons dietary intake today. Again, take a few moments to reflect on what you ate or drank during the past 24 hours... How much of what you consumed over the last 24 hours contained fiber? Because there is practically no fiber in the SAD diet, that means there is nothing to propel the food through that lengthy digestive tract, and thus the average person eating the SAD diet suffers constipation problems. In an effort to correct this constipation problem, many people have to take a laxative. But there is a better way to deal with constipation problems. Most people, when they switch from the SAD diet to the Hallelujah Diet — a primarily raw (living) foods diet loaded with fiber based on God’s Genesis 1:29 diet — see their constipation problems simply disappear. Once again it’s a matter of cause and effect... "whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap!"
Animal-Source Foods Damage The Digestive SystemThe most dangerous foods one can place into their body are those of animal origin, and for several reasons: First, animal-source foods are almost always cooked before consuming. This kills the enzymes and renders it a dead food. Second, there is no fiber to be found in anything of animal origin, which means they move through that lengthy digestive system very, very slowly, taking some 3-4 days to exit. As I said earlier, the temperature inside the physical body we each possess is approximately 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. That is almost 100 degrees! In my seminars, I often use the illustration of placing a pound of hamburger on the kitchen counter, turning the thermostat up to 100 degrees, leaving the room, and closing the door behind. Then coming back into the room 3-4 days later and noting the terrible odor coming from the putrefied flesh. When a person eliminates animal source foods from their diet, and adopts the Hallelujah Diet — a diet loaded with life and fiber — body odor almost always disappears and there in no longer need for a deodorant. Once again, cause and effect... what we sow we reap! I personally have had no need for a deodorant since I eliminated animal source foods from my diet over 40 years ago.
Animal-Source Are A Cause Of Most Colon ProblemsBut there are far more dangerous problems with animal-source foods than body odor. For instance, that putrefied animal flesh that causes body odor, becomes the primary cause of:
- Crohn’s disease
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- ulcerative colitis
- colon cancer... and almost every other colon problem
