‘Our bodies are built up from the food we eat. There is a constant breaking down of the tissues of the body; every movement of every organ involves waste, and this waste is repaired from our food.
Each organ of the body requires its share of nutrition. The brain must be supplied with its portion; the bones, muscles, and nerves demand theirs. This process is going on continually, supplying with life and strength each nerve, muscle, and tissue’. Ellen G White, Ministry of Healing, page 295
1 Corinthians 10:31 whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatever ye do, do it all to the glory of God. This verse reminds us that our eating habits should glorify God.
How can our food choices glorify God?
Well if we believe that our body is the temple of God, we should make sure that whilst we are nourishing our temple spiritually, we are also consuming the most nutritional food types which will nourish our temple physically both internally and externally.
It is all about best practice. As Science advances daily, we are often taught better health practices.
In the beginning, Genesis 1:29 states that, the initial provision of food included herbs, bearing seeds and trees, bearing fruits. Such provision is often favoured by many Seventh-day Adventists, as it is acknowledged as being the most nutritional practice because it was given to us before sin by our Creator.
Science also supports a plant based diet and such practices has been credited for reducing the risk of Cancer, heart diseases and lowering blood pressure. Ellen G white also refers the original diet as the best practice in the Ministry of healing p296.
Information about ways of improving our health are always very insightful, although implanting dietary changes are not always easy. It is better to be informed about what we can change so we are able to facilitate such changes at any given time.
To find out more on these best practices, join us on the following Sabbaths 20th and 27th of February at 11:00am – 13:00pm, where we will hear practical ways to reverse and prevent the most common diseases by Dr Chidi. Also a series of Q&A sessions will take place in the evening, followed by health checks from 18:00pm -19:30pm. See our calendar of events to find out more
God bless and have a great week.
