" " Natural Food

A Vital Link In Your Health Stewardship Program

The term "natural" is used today in advertising so loosely that I don't think anyone knows what it means. "Natural!" is emblazoned on every other package. But when you read the label there is a mile long list of artificial ingredients. This tells me that for the advertisers "natural" means that at one time this was from nature.

When God created food for the first time, He knew exactly what we needed to live full and happy lives. He packaged it in fruits and vegetables. He created the awesome process of photosynthesis so that plants could take the sun's life giving energy and transform it into food for us. Amazing! He had us lovingly in mind then and now. So why is it that we have so many food choices that say "natural" but aren't?

The love of money is the root of all evil! The reason for the articial items on the package list is MONEY! The longer the shelf life and the brighter the colors the more money the food producers make. Why does the FDA allow chemicals in our food that other countries have banned? That is a good question and the answer is still that love of money is the root of all evil.

Don't expect other people to do your thinking for you. Do your homework and begin studying how to live life as God intended. Everything you need for health, He has provided in raw unprocessed food.
