How The Standard American Diet Destroys Our Health

Note:
Who does "your" body belong to, God or the world? Is your diet a good witness to unbelievers?

How The Standard American Diet Destroys Our Health

by Dr George Malmus

If we are going to restore our health “God’s way” we must stop nourishing our body’s the “world’s way”.

For the first 42 years of my life I nourished my body the “world’s way.” As a result, I suffered numerous physical problems, culminating with colon cancer at age 42.

After being told I had cancer, I stopped nourishing my body the world’s way and began nourishing my body God’s way on the advice of evangelist Lester Roloff.

The result: My cancer quickly disappeared, without any medical intervention, and I stopped getting sick.

It has been 36 years since I stopped nourishing my body the world’s way and I am still experiencing excellent health only a few years from my 80th birthday.

I have already outlived both my parents by 13 years (they both ate the world’s diet) — and I am only five years from outliving my longest living ancestor that I am aware of.

Do I believe it is diet that has and is making the difference? ABSOLUTELY!


What’s Wrong With What People Eat Today

Almost everything a person eats today is contrary to what God designed our physical bodies to be nourished with and what science reveals we should be eating if we want to avoid disease and experience health (read The China Study by Dr. T. Colin Campbell).

Dr. Campbell has done more research on the relationship of diet to disease than any other researcher in history. His book reveals how the world’s diet is the cause of almost every physical problem we experience and how God’s diet, as revealed in Genesis 1:29, will not only prevent sickness but restore health to most who adopt it.

Sadly, Satan’s subtle attacks come in various forms, sometimes even creating confusion among leaders in the alternative health field. These leaders go against abundant scientific research and undeniable clinical experience of Dr. Campbell, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, among others. In so doing, they condemn God’s Genesis 1:29 way of nourishing our God created bodies.

In addition to what Dr. Campbell’s research reveals, tens of thousands of people have written me over the past 20 years to report that when they stopped consuming the world’s diet, and began nourishing their bodies God’s way, over 170 different physical problems disappeared and they didn’t get sick anymore.

Are you aware that God wants His children to be in health?

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and BE IN HEALTH, even as thy soul prospereth.”
(3 John 2)

However, even though it is clear that God wants His people to “be in health” they are not. Here is an example of just how sick our generation is…


Let’s Take A Look At The Health of People Today

Here are some statistics from the Statistical Abstract of the United States, as published by the U. S. Department of Commerce:


Cardiovascular diseases affect 80% of all Americans
33% of all Americans develop cancer
Over 6.5 million Americans suffer with diabetes
77% of the adult population suffers with arthritis and rheumatic disorders
Over 25 million suffer from asthma, bronchitis or emphysema
15 million suffer from ulcers
10 million are migraine sufferers
Over 50% suffer chronic digestive disorders
80 million suffer from allergies
22 million suffer mental illness’
98% have bad teeth and 31 million have no teeth of their own
70% are overweight and 80 million are classified as obese
Nearly 90% of our children cannot pass a minimum physical fitness test

The World’s Diet Is A Weapon of Mass Destruction

Following is an interesting verse in the bible concerning the word “weapon.”

“Wisdom is better than weapons of war.” (Ecclesiastes 9:18)


Most Christians realize that we have an “adversary” whom the Bible refers to as “the devil”:

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”
(1 Peter 5:8)

One of this adversary’s primary functions is to frustrate and if possible, destroy the work of the Lord.

I personally believe that one of devil’s greatest tools is to weaken and prematurely destroy the physical bodies (temples) of God’s people. He does this so that they cannot effectively do the work of the Lord and fulfill the ministry to which God has called them.

What better way to do this than to get God’s people to consume foods that are harmful to their physical bodies!

If we go back to the book of Genesis, we will see the devil used food as a means of frustrating God’s plan over 6,000 years ago, right there in the Garden of Eden, when Eve ate something God had said should not be eaten:

“And the Lord God commanded the man, saying; Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest therof thou shalt surely die.”
(Genesis 2:16-17)

By eating something God said should not be eaten, sin entered the world, man was banished from the Garden, separated from God, and had to earn his “bread” (food) by the sweat of his brow.”

But God, in His great love, for us provided a means of restoring man to a right relationship with Him through his Son, Jesus Christ:

“But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. . . . Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in BONDAGE.”
(Galatians 4:4-9)

Christians Are In Bondage To The World’s Diet

The Standard American Diet (SAD) most people consume is the world’s diet, which stands in stark contrast to God’s diet as revealed in Genesis 1:29.

And truly, the world’s diet is a weapon of mass destruction evidenced by the poor health of the Christian community and the constant prayers for the healing by God’s people.


If you are a Christian, you KNOW we have an “adversary” – The Bible refers to our adversary as the “devil” in I Peter 5:8 as referenced above.

But do you realize there is a second part to that verse? It is to this second part of the verse I want to call our attention next: “Whom RESIST steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”


Again, one of the adversary’s primary functions is to frustrate and, if possible, destroy the work of the Lord. We see this all too often when a pastor or missionary or one of God’s servants develops cancer as a result of eating the world’s diet, and then dies after pursuing the world’s medical system in an attempt to restore their health.

Our Physical Bodies Are God’s Temples
One of the devil’s greatest tools is to weaken and prematurely destroy the physical bodies of believers. Are you aware scriptures refer to our body as “the TEMPLE” of the Holy Ghost”?

“What? Know ye not that YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY GHOST which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
(1 Corinthians 6:19)


The Bible also tells us that we should “glorify God in our body . . . .”

Friend, we cannot glorify God in our body when we place things into our body that will destroy it, and that is exactly what the Standard American Diet (SAD) does.


And another thing… If you are a Christian, your body no longer belongs to you, but rather it was purchased by God and became His property when you accepted Him who loved you and gave Himself a ransom for you.

“Who will have all men to be saved, and come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all.”
(1 Timothy 2:4-6)

Now when we “defile the temple” (the physical body) the Bible tells us that there are consequences:

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”
(1 Corinthians 3:16-17)


And now for the climax to what I have been trying to say:

“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.”
(1 Corinthians 3:17-18)


The Standard American Diet (SAD), the world’s diet, is being used by the devil not only to deceive the believer as to what they should eat, but this same diet is what causes almost every physical and even psychological problem we experience. It is the cause of almost every problem we pray for fellow Christians to be healed of.

This diet is also the very thing that shortens our lives and ministries. It causes so many Christians to leave this world prematurely — before they have completed the ministry God has called them to.

This senseless and unnecessary destruction of the physical bodies of God’s children needs to cease.


Is There Any Hope?

Thirty-six years ago there was a Baptist evangelist in Texas by the name of Lester Roloff who for years had been trying the get Christians and preachers alike to get off the world’s diet and to adopt God’s diet.

His efforts were not appreciated.

In fact his efforts were met with great opposition and ridicule by many fellow preachers.

I knew Brother Roloff and was aware of his efforts to get Christians to change their diets, and I was also aware of the criticism he had received because I had joined in that criticism.

But now I needed help with my cancer and so I turned to Brother Roloff for advice as to how I could get rid of my cancer without drugs, radiation or surgery.

At his advice, I stopped putting the world’s diet into my body, started eating God’s diet, and soon my cancer started to go away.

Within a year my cancer was totally gone.

This healing caused me to do some scriptural research. It wasn’t long before I realized that God had given man a diet in Genesis 1:29.

I like to call it the “GOD” Diet, which stands for “God’s Original Diet”.

Not long after that, God led me to begin a ministry called “Hallelujah Acres” a ministry that teaches health from a biblical perspective.

Today, millions around the world have adopted The Hallelujah Diet which is based on God’s Original (Genesis 1:29) Diet.

As a result of eliminating the world’s diet and adopting God’s diet, tens of thousands around the world have written to report that after making the diet change they have recovered from over 170 different physical and psychological problems and they don’t get sick anymore.

Are you still eating the world’s diet or have you adopted God’s diet?

Your answer to that question could determine whether you remain sick or obtain wellness. It also could have a strong influence as to how long you live.

Next Week…
The good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high, we will take a detailed look at the world’s diet, and learn why it is so dangerous to our heath — and why it is the cause of almost every physical problem we experience. Join us!

The Great Weight Debate

By Sarah Reistad-Long
O, The Oprah Magazine | From the March 2009 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine

Surprise: The latest research shows you can be overweight and fit, and thin but carrying too much fat.

Leah Dawson is unhealthy—at least that's what public health guidelines would have you believe. The 41-year-old mother of three, who manages her husband's athletic career (he's Olympic skier Toby Dawson), works out four days a week and carefully monitors her diet. Her cholesterol and blood pressure are enviable. But never mind all that: Leah Dawson is considered "unhealthy" because at 5'8", her weight has hovered near 170 pounds. That puts her at 26 BMI (body mass index—the height-to-weight formula doctors use to diagnose weight problems), which is in the overweight category. "My doctor would tell me that I needed to lose weight," she says. "My lab work would come out fine; I've even passed a stress test. But I'm never 'okay.'"

Thirty-nine-year-old Teresa Holler, on the other hand, is considered "healthy." As a physician assistant, Holler knows she needs to monitor her weight. But after a tough pregnancy six years ago, she slowed down her normally rigorous exercise program. Initially, the trim 5'3", 128-pound, size-5 Holler wasn't too concerned: Her BMI remained at 23, putting her in the healthy range of 18.5 to 24.9. Still, she began to worry that something was amiss. "I felt like I was getting this ring of fat around my midsection," she says. "And I was just less energetic." This led her to request a body-fat test from her doctor. She was shocked to find the amount of fat she was carrying on her diminutive frame—30 percent—qualified her as borderline obese, dramatically elevating her risk for diabetes and heart disease. "Here I was, spending my days telling other people how to get healthy, and I'd missed this," she remembers.

Health experts have been too strict with heavy people like Dawson and too lax with normal-weight people like Holler: Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have found that about half of American adults in the normal-body-weight category still have too much body fat—and given that these people also tend to have many of the risk factors associated with heart disease, that assessment is probably correct. "I'm a cardiologist, and I was seeing too many patients whose BMI checked out as normal but who didn't look right," says Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, MD, the Mayo doctor who headed the study. "Some had a big belly, some had low muscle mass. And they had high blood sugar and cholesterol. It became clear to me that the measurements we were using weren't working for these people."

How risky is it for a normal-weight person to carry too much fat? The answer lies in the way the body stores the stuff. "All fat isn't created equal," says Timothy Church, MD, PhD, a professor at Louisiana State University's Pennington Biomedical Research Center. "The deeply deposited kind—visceral fat—produces three times more bad chemicals than other types, and it drains directly into your liver."

Visceral fat bulks up the trunk of the body, and it has been directly tied to increased risk of diabetes and heart disease. (People who carry fat on the hips and thighs seem to have a lower risk.) Importantly, visceral fat tends to be the type normal-weight people have. It sneaks up on a person because it's not especially visible and it can build up without altering weight—replacing muscle that is naturally lost with aging. And that stealthy buildup of fat may help explain the results of a 2005 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA): Researchers analyzed mortality data of people in different weight categories, from underweight to obese, and found that there were fewer deaths among overweight people than those in the normal-weight group.

That finding may come as quite a shock for Americans, who have had it drilled into them that being heavy will take years off their lives. But evidence to the contrary has been mounting, and a 2008 report on the U.S. population published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine made the issue impossible to ignore: Half of Americans who are in the overweight BMI category and a third of those in the obese one (30 or greater BMI) are actually healthy—they have plenty of "good" cholesterol, normal blood pressure and glucose levels, and no other risk markers for heart disease.

"In other research I was doing, I was seeing a lot of people who were heavy but fine," says MaryFran Sowers, PhD, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Michigan who co-authored the study. "What was surprising about the study results was that the number of healthy overweight people was so prevalent."

Lopez-Jimenez agrees. "We've long assumed that all people who are overweight have a lot of fat, and that people with normal weight have less fat and more muscle," he says. "We now know that's not always true. There are fewer unhealthy overweight people out there, and many more at-risk normal-weight ones than we thought." In other words, BMI is an imperfect standard. A simple height-versus-weight number can't account for how a person is built, lean or stocky, big breasted or not.

So if BMI is flawed, what is the best predictor of who is healthy and who isn't? In Sowers's study, there was one reliable answer. People who qualified as heavy but still healthy tended to report being physically active. Indeed, her study isn't the first to note this. Findings published in JAMA in 2007 indicate that fitness level—regardless of weight—is the single strongest predictor of mortality risk. People with the lowest level of fitness were four times more likely to die than those with the highest. Longevity didn't require superhuman effort, either; people who could pass a minimal fitness test of walking for longer than five and a half minutes on a treadmill had half the risk of an early death as those who failed the challenge.

Taking all the new findings together, the lesson is that even at 170 pounds, Leah Dawson had it right: Eat a good diet and drop any unhealthy habits you might have. Then focus on exercise and forget about striving toward some standardized ideal of weight. "Fitness is the critical piece we're losing sight of," says Church. "People get so caught up with weight—they start to exercise, the scale doesn't move, and they get discouraged. They're not noticing that their pants fit differently, that they've actually lost dangerous visceral fat. When you become active, you're not just adding muscle, you're getting healthier." And that's what will help you live longer.

The latest research shows you can be overweight and fit, and thin but carrying too much fat.

Raw Sunflower Seed / Lemon Dressing recipe

Raw Sunflower Seed / Lemon Dressing
This recipe was sent in by Kathie who lives in California: "Here is a totally raw, whole foods, salad dressing that can also be used as a mayonnaise, dip, sour cream, or a tartar sauce by reducing the amount of water a little to make it thicker."
Print This Page
Ingredients

2 1/2 cups distilled water
1 1/2 cups raw, hulled, Sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt (or to taste)
2 teaspoons Paprika
2 teaspoons Onion Powder (or flakes)
2 Lemons (juice from)
1 clove fresh Garlic (minced)
Directions

The secret to a fine dressing is letting the above ingredients blend in a strong blender (Vita Mix) for quite awhile until very creamy. Sometimes I substitute fresh basil and dill (or parsley) for the paprika. It then turns out a pale green instead of a pale paprika color. This dressing is very healthy because it has no free oils, cholesterol, hydrogenated fats, vinegar, sugar, or cooked ingredients. This recipe is really GUILT FREE, and is the recipe I use more than any other."

*ORGANIC INGREDIENTS ARE ALWAYS RECOMMENDED

Quinoa-Black Bean Casserole recipe

Note from Miriam:
I found this recipe by googling black beans and quinoa. It's great, but I used butternut squash instead of sweet potato (bcs I had some on hand), less cumin, and you really need to cook the quinoa by itself in water before adding the other stuff; it does not seem to really puff up otherwise. Also, the cheese is optional.

Stepf's Quinoa-Black Bean Casserole

This recipe came about because I had just made vegetable enchiladas and had leftovers, plus quinoa from earlier in the week. Thankfully, this experiment yielded a hearty, delicious meal.

I cooked up a batch of dried beans that I seasoned with onions, garlic, chiles and spices. If you use canned beans, you might need more spices. Try adding Chef Meg's Taco Seasoning.

Serve this with steamed broccoli or wilted spinach and a dollop of light sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.

40 Minutes to Prepare and Cook

Ingredients

1 cup dry quinoa
1 cup salsa
2 eggs
1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded sweet potato (use a box grater or a food processor)
3 cups black beans (or 2 cans, drained and rinsed)
1 T ground cumin
Liberal pinches salt and pepper


Directions

Cook quinoa according to package directions.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix quinoa, black beans, sweet potato, half the cheese and the cumin in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix the eggs and the salsa, then pour over the vegetables. Pour all ingredients into a 9x9 casserole dish coated with nonstick cooking spray.
Sprinkle on remaining cheese and bake for 30 minutes, uncovered.

Veggie Chickpea Burgers with Tahini Sauce recipe

Note from Miriam:
These are yummy! I used less cayenne pepper than recipe calls for and they were still a little spicy. Use it according to your tolerance for spice.

God's Garden of Eden
Chickpea Burgers with Tahini Sauce

(delicious♥ you don't have to be a vegetarian or vegan to enjoy these ultra-YUMMY, ultra-nutritious, low-fat burgers):

Ingredients
1 15-ounce can chickpeas (or 1 1/2 cups cooked), drained and rinsed
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons tahini
1 1/2 to 2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup plain bread crumbs
4 buns or pita pockets

Instructions
♥Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
♥Pulse the chickpeas in a food processor until thick and pasty. (You may mash them by hand, but it is a little more labor- intensive and time- consuming.) Transfer to a medium- size bowl.
♥To the bowl, add the onion, garlic, parsley, tahini, cumin, coriander, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and baking powder. Slowly add the bread crumbs until the mixture holds together. Add more bread crumbs, as needed. Shape into patties.
♥Place on a nonstick cookie sheet and bake for 10–12 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom. Using a spatula, flip each patty over, and cook for 10–12 minutes more until the other side is golden brown. Remove from the oven. Alternatively, you may fry the patties with a little oil in a pan on the stovetop.
♥While the burgers are cooking, make the tahini sauce, below.
♥Notes: If your chickpeas seem too dry to form a paste, try adding water by the tablespoon until they become more “sticky.” If your burgers still don’t hold together, try pulsing the mixture a few times in the food processor.

Two ways to do everything: the world's way and God's way. Which way are you choosing to take care of your health?

Is There A Better Way?
by Dr George Malkmus
of Hallelujah Acres

America, though it spends more money per capita on “Health Care” than any other nation on Earth, is close to being the sickest nation on Earth!

More money is spent on health care in the USA than in any other nation in the world, and a greater percentage of total income in the nation is spent on health care in the USA than in any United Nations member state.

The World Health Organization (WHO), in 2000, ranked the U.S. health care system as the highest in cost, 37th in overall performance, and 72nd in overall level of health.

In 2009, the United States federal, state and local governments, corporations, and individuals, together spent $2.5 trillion on health care. That amount breaks down to $8,047 for every man, woman, and child in the country each year. This amount represented 17.3% of the GDP in 2008.

Health insurance costs are rising faster than wages or inflation, and medical causes were cited by about half of bankruptcy filers in the United States in 2001.

How Is This Health Care System Working For You?
With National Health Care having been signed into law and with the constantly increasing cost of health care, are we getting the results and seeing the improved health promised by our current government?

Of course, the answer is a resounding “NO”!

If any business in the business world provided such poor results, it would go out of business. But not the health care business. The worse the results being obtained, the higher the cost, and the more it thrives.

Is there not something wrong with this picture?

Yet our government continues to subsidize this failed industry with tax payer dollars (yours and mine) which will force every citizen, whether they pay taxes or not, or want to be a part of it or not, into this failed system.

From where I sit, I am constantly receiving emails from people who have given this system every opportunity to fix their broken bodies — but their results prove the current health care system’s efforts are a dismal failure.

Letters Tell of Health Care Failures
“Good morning Rev. Malkmus, I am so up to my ears in trying to feel better. I have been dealing with health issues since 2003. Here’s a quick rundown on what happened to me:

In 2003 I took a drug for what the doctor said was a bladder infection. I took only one drug ‘Floxin’, one pill, one time, and that one pill has destroyed my life. I ceased being that happy active mom and wife. I have spent the past eight years looking for help from the medical community.

I’m so tired of going to doctors looking for answers and finding none that I could scream. This one pill, taken only one time, has affected my whole central nervous system. I feel on edge every second of every day. It is awful. I cry myself to sleep most nights thinking of how my life used to be before taking that pill.

I am a Christian and have prayed to the point I don’t even know how to pray anymore. Rev. Malkmus is there anything at all that you can think of that can help me or do you know of any doctor that might be able to shed some light on how to overcome the affect this drug has had on my life and body?”
Jackie R., Miami

“Dr. Malkmus, My 57-year old husband has advanced stage 4 prostate cancer with bone metastasis. He was sent home in November 2010 to die as the doctors said there was nothing more they could do for him.

Over the years and especially since last fall I have encouraged him to go vegan but it was not an easy sell despite the fact that we are both ordained ministers. We should have been eating to live – not the opposite as the world is doing, living to eat – and we have repented.

In January 2011 I did convince him to begin vegetable juicing and it started to turn around his cancer. His PSA fell from 348 to 112. However, he still insisted on some animal products and as a result in April his PSA started to rise again.

We are both on leave from ministry at this time as he is very ill. His left side, especially his left leg is losing circulation. The doctors want to give him more radiation but he says ‘no’.

I have just completed Dr. Campbell’s three online courses from Cornell on plant based nutrition and one of my instructors directed me to you and the Hallelujah Acres website. I really thank you for all you are doing in the field of biblical nutrition. I am astonished by all that I have learned.

We both lost our first spouses to cancer. My first husband and the father of my two children died at age 33 of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Now my second husband has terminal cancer. I believe God has a nutritional ministry in mind for the two of us once he recovers.”
Marilyn F.

In My Seminars…
In my seminars I will often ask questions of those attending. Here are a few of those questions that I ask:

How many of you have had a friend, loved one, or family member who was diagnosed with cancer?

Almost every hand in the room goes up. Then I ask how many of those who had cancer died after being treated for their cancer. It is hard sometimes to see much difference between the numbers of those who had cancer and those who died following cancer treatment.
How many of you, or a friend, family member, or loved one were prescribed a drug for the physical problem being experienced?

The response is almost 100% of those present.
How many had an adverse reaction to a doctor prescribed drug?

Once again, almost every hand was raised.
How many of you, or a friend, family member, or loved one was cured of the physical problem they were given the drug to correct to the extent they no longer had need of that drug?

Hardly ever does a hand get raised.
The Two Letters Above
For a moment, let’s reflect on the two letters above and the results to the questions I ask in my seminars to see how they compare.

In the letter from Marilyn, both her spouse and her husband’s spouse died following cancer treatment and now her current husband is in such critical condition after medical treatments, they have sent him home to die.

Is that not the same results indicated by the show of hands when I asked in my seminar “How many have a friend, loved one, or family member who was diagnosed with cancer?”

And when I asked “How many of those died after treatment,” did not it produce the same results as Marilyn and her husband experienced with their first spouses?

Now consider Jackie’s reaction after taking just one pill one time. Not only did it not correct the problem but produced new symptoms that have destroyed her life for the past eight years.

Isn’t that similar to results expressed by the thousands of people in my seminars who have not seen their physical problem cured as a result of taking a drug?

The World’s Way
What I have shared above is the world’s way of dealing with physical problems!

I find it so amazing that the world’s approach to physical problems today produces no better results than the results the doctors of the Bible 2,000 years ago:

“And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse.” (Mark 5:25-6)

Friends, the result people obtained going the world’s way in Bible times is the same today when they go the world’s way in their attempt to correct physical problems.

So the logical question one must ask is: “Is there a better way?”

Thankfully there is indeed a better way — God’s way!

God’s Way
Let’s see if the Bible can shed some light on the subject…

God Created Man – “AND 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.” (Genesis 2:7)


God Placed Man In A Garden – “AND THE LORD GOD planted a garden eastward in Eden: and there he put the man whom he had formed.” (Genesis 2:8)


God Told Man What To Eat – “AND GOD SAID, Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed (vegetable), which is upon the face of the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seek; to you it shall be for meat.” (Genesis 1:29)


Man Charged With Taking Care Of His Own Body – “I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable UNTO GOD, which is your reasonable service.” (Romans 12:1)


Man Told Not To Pursue The World’s Way – “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect WILL OF GOD.” (Romans 12:2)

Consequences Of Going The World’s Way – “Be not deceived, GOD IS NOT MOCKED, for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)

So we have messed up! We Christians have been following the “world’s way” instead of God’s way in how we take care of our physical bodies. We have consumed the world’s food and drink, and as a result have become sick, gone to the world’s doctors to get better, taken the world’s drugs, and suffer the same physical and emotional breakdowns as the world and to the same percentages.

Is It Too Late To Change?
For most people it is not too late to change and correct the results they have obtained by doing things the “world’s way.” In fact, almost every physical problem presently being experiencing can be corrected by ceasing to feed the body the world’s way and by starting to nourish it God’s way if the world’s way” has not already done irreversible damage.
