Re: Clean & Unclean = Health Laws?
I found an interesting article and here are some excerpts from
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
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
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).
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;
Avoid eating animals that die by themselves (Leviticus 17:15;
22:8, Deuteronomy 14:21, Ezekiel 4:14).
Do not boil a young
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).
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.
Psalm 119:114, Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield:
I hope in thy
[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 !
