War of the Words — Eating the Greens & Naturally Sustainable Organic Foods

War of the Words — Eating the Greens and Naturally Sustainable Organic Foods

I have referred to the War of the Words several times in my talks and conversations –and it seems to resonate, so I will expound here. There is some intended sarcasm also.– Augie

Make Up Your Own Words

Government, corporate and academia change-makers are  always defining and redefining our words for us. “Water” for example may have different meanings depending on the specific laws or regulations the word is set within. Redefinition is an age-old practice to manipulate people and take control. As soon as you understand one word defined, you can be sure its definition has already been changed. Attorneys love it.

Organic comes to mind. If you search the Journal you will not find me using the term– as I have a distaste for it– like organic CAFO-type factory farmed chickens and eggs. The word has caused so much confusion and frustration– I don’t like to use it. USDA stole the term from the grassroots and twisted it to where can mean a battery of concentration camps of 250,000 chickens or even a million–voila, most of your organic chickens and eggs at the supermarket. Funny, pesticides and herbicides are organic too.

The Spiritual Meaning of Natural Food and Drink

Everyday is Thanksgiving

Food and drink is something everyone loves; but there is much more to it than the titillating of all of our senses and the filling of our stomachs.

Food and drink connect us all; it is music to the soul—a universal language. There is a spiritual significance to the planting of seed, growing, harvesting, proper preparation and eating of food—even the soil, seed and plant. There is greater meaning in feasting on naturally grown food grown by farmer friends or from your own garden/homestead; even more so when enjoyed with family and good friends. There is a spiritual connection to these rituals; a connection to the Creator and His people. We will be examining this spiritual meaning of natural food with a biblical perspective.

Before we get into more depth, you must first enjoy this 4-minute presentation on the godly artwork that shows divine design of natural foods and their health-giving properties.

The importance of natural drinks, water for example, must also be considered to understand the full scope of the subject. Continue reading

The Spiritual Meaning of Natural Food

Food and drink connect us all; it is music to the soul—the universal language. There is a spiritual significance to the growing, harvesting, proper preparation and eating of food—even the soil, seed and plant.

Soul Food

In this column, we will provide some info on bread, wine and water and other food choices such as fruit, milk and meats. This will be something you may want to include on the menu to whet everyone’s appetite for those foods essential for perfect and long lasting health.

CAUTION: We will need to issue a caution warning on this label and on the menu. The mere mention of biblical principles that pertain to food and health may cause a few to go into a tizzy. Also, those who may want to repeat some of this info is at risk of being diagnosed with a special label set aside in the DSM-V.

You are about to be served a special treat to satisfy your natural hunger and thirst.

I wrote these articles back in 2002-3 and was critically reviewed and edited by my wife, Annie, and her mother, Gerry. I am currently researching Biblical and Spiritual Significance of Natural Foods and plan to develop a short course on the subject. Maureen Diaz (MotherHenof9 is her handle) is doing something similar that will be produced this year on DVD. We have agreed to trade and compare our work.

You should start the journey by reading Bible Basics: Origin, Purpose and Reliability or go to the front page of The Believers Trumpet for other interesting articles.
