What The Bible Diet Entails
Biblical healthy eating requires one to follow the scripture and understand what was accepted by that time.
In as much as it may not be evident, God is concerned about our overall health. god is concerned about our diet for some few reasons. The reasons for God’s concern for our health are such as; He loves us and wishes for our wellbeing, His communication to us is through our brain, He is our maker and regards us as His children and because our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.
Bible verses such as; 1 John 4:19 “We love Him because He first loved us.” Show God’s love for us and how much He wishes for our wellbeing. He wishes what is best for us in this world and in our lives therefore the diet among other things encompasses this fact.
We need to eat well in order to have our brains functioning in the way that it should be. This helps us to have better communication with Him as we have clear minds. The concept of healthy eating is important and God wishes us to follow this aspect as it helps us to pay attention to His call and understand what He is communicating to us in a better way than a person who does not follow a healthy diet and is often distracted from His word and call. Unhealthy eating is often associated by many temptations and shortcomings which may attract the influence of the devil and deter the person from following what is right.
We are His creation and His children as well and therefore wants what is best for what He has made, in this case being our diet. it is easy to see how much God cares for us as His creation in the scriptures with the example of; “And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, said the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18.
Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit and thus should be taken care of in a proper way. The body should be used in a way that glorifies God in every way.
Originally, the diet was made up of plants alone followed by vegetables as is seen in the garden of Eden. Later on, there was introduction of flesh food which was after the great flood. After the introduction of eating of flesh foods, there was some conditions that were set for this purpose.
