Re: Clean & Unclean = Health Laws?

Hi guys,

I found an interesting article and here are some excerpts from it:

Quote:Some of the simple, yet very important, health laws found in the Bible are to:

Eat your meals at regular intervals (Ecclesiastes 10:17).
Don't overeat (Proverbs 23:2, Luke 21:34).
Make mealtime a happy time (Ecclesiastes 3:13).
Don't harbor envy or hold grudges (Proverbs 14:30, Matthew 5:23,24).
Maintain a cheerful, happy disposition (Proverbs 17:22; 23:7).
Balance work and exercise with sleep and rest (Exodus 20:9,10, Ecclesiastes 2:22,23; 5:12, Psalm 127:2).
Keep your body clean (Isaiah 52:11).
Be temperate in all things (1 Corinthians 9:25, Philippians 4:5).
Avoid all harmful stimulants [Note: Medical science has confirmed the fact that tea, coffee, and soft drinks that contain the addictive drug caffeine and other harmful ingredients are all positively damaging to the body] Help those who are in need (Isaiah 58:6-10 .
Bury body waste to avoid disease (Deuteronomy 23:12-13).
[Note: This is obviously for health reasons, because history and science has shown that if this was not done, diseases would spread and people would die from them]
Avoid eating animals that were strangled (Acts 15:20,29; 21:25).
Avoid eating animals that die by themselves (Leviticus 17:15; 22:8, Deuteronomy 14:21, Ezekiel 4:14).
Do not boil a young animal in its mother's milk (Deuteronomy 14:21).
Do not eat animal fat or blood (Genesis 9:4, Leviticus 3:17; 7:23-27; 17:10-14, Deuteronomy 12:16).
[Note: Recent scientific studies have confirmed the fact that most heart attacks result from a high cholesterol level in the blood -and that the use of "fats" is largely responsible for this high level. Also, the blood can transfer diseases. Science is just catching up with the Bible.
Put full trust in the Lord (Proverbs 4:20-22; 19:23).

1: Those who break God's rules regarding the care of the body machine will reap broken bodies and burned-out lives (Galatians 6:7); just as one who abuses his automobile will have serious car trouble. And those who continue to break God's laws of health will ultimately be destroyed by the Lord (1 Corinthians 3:16-17). God's health laws are not arbitrary. They are natural, established laws of the universe, like the law of gravity. Ignoring these laws always bring disastrous results.

2: "What did God make the hog for, if not to eat?"

Answer: He made it for the same purpose that He made the buzzard, shrimp, and crab - as a scavenger, to clean up garbage. They are God's sewerage disposal system. Contrary to this, the clean beasts are "ruminants." their bodies are designed to eat things that are unclean (such as a lizard) without taking on that uncleanness into their own flesh (cows for instance, have four compartments in their stomach in which to digest their food in this way). The unclean beasts are not ruminants, so the unclean foods they eat stay in their flesh. Pigs eat excrement, it merges with their flesh, which then enters us.

3: "What health problems does pork pose?"

Answer: First, pork is loaded with saturated fats, the highest meat in fats, and filled with cholesterol. Second, cancer in the pig's skin, kidneys, the lymphatic system and other internal organs is common. The more cancer affects animals, the more (scientists tell us) that there is potential to affect man. Third, pork products are regularly preserved with nitrates that are known to be cancer-causing compounds. Fourth, pork contributes to numerous digestive and stomach problems. And fifth, Pork contains trichina larvae, and trichinosis can be a major problem, it kills people. You eat the pork, the trichina larvae enter the stomach, and as the eggs hatch in the stomach, they invade muscles and tissues. Sometimes it shows up as rheumatism or arthritis.

God bless,

Psalm 119:114, Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

[Ed.Note]Many "teachers" quote Acts 10:10 et seq., to justify the consumption of scavenger flesh..... diligent study of Acts 10 tells us that Peter's vision was concerned with him not calling any man "unclean"; 3 times he approached the unclean "food" 3 times it was snatched away before he could eat any. Not a morsel of that poison passed his lips; i doubt that pork chops lead to the lake of fire. They will (along with other unclean "foods") lead your health into ruin.... especially if consumed repeatedly. God loves his children !
