HEY HELLO GOOD AFTERNOON!
Recently I have been relenting to a lot of people that I feel like I’ve been only recently able to express so much of the convictions that God has placed on my heart in the way that I truly have been shown by Him. One of those things is about God and Science.
“Do not conform to the patterns of this world” —Romans 12:2
The world is a sinful place. Adam and Eve were originally fully spiritual humans, until they were first tempted to sin. From that day forward, humans are sinners. Worldly things are sinful. That is why I believe vehemently in whole foods.
For example, in consuming something like Splenda, I am consuming a man-made product, something from this earth, something that in no way glorifies God. Moreover, I am consuming it for the sole purpose of appeasing my eating disorder, which is a temptation from Satan. The sinfulness of my own personal consumption of Splenda is twofold.
However, if I consume something like an organic banana, which was originally put on this earth by the Lord to nourish humans, I am nourishing myself in the way that God intended– UNLESS the notion of consuming ONLY whole foods consumes me, therefore succumbing to my eating disorder– from Satan– and not glorifying God.
“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.” –Ecclesiastes 3:11
Do you see what I’m getting at? For me, the way my brain has been altered by temptation in the form of my mental illness, what I consume, how much I consume, and when I consume it is overpowering. It is my greatest personal stumbling block between me and God.
What is the greatest stumbling block between you and God? What can you do today to overcome that?
