3 Principles of The Bible Diet
What are those life-changing principles? I’m excited to share!
# 1 – Eat the Food God Created for You
Every food God called good for us is better than anything man can imitate.
The good news about food: God provided a bountiful supply of delicious foods. A brief glance around the world reveals the vast array of foods. A deeper look confirms an abundance of options.
Here are the boundaries for beneficial foods. Dr. Rex Russell wrote these words many years ago, but they are timeless.
When the Designer calls an item food. Refer to Genesis 1:29 – seed-bearing plants and trees with fruit. When God brings items to His people as a gift. See Ezekiel 16:19 – fine flour, olive oil, & honey. If Jesus ate or served an item. See Matthew 15:36 – loaves of bread & fish.
# 2 Eat the Foods as Close to His Design as Possible
Whenever God’s food is altered, it diminishes the goodness He’s infused in them.
Ignorance around food is a plague in our world. Especially in the church. Too often, food is seen as something to enjoy for its own sake, not for the sake of fueling our temples in the best way possible.
Romans 1:22 says, “…although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.”
We also see this truth in Proverbs 16:25. “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end, it leads to death.”
As much as possible, stepping outside the media and google doctors, look to God’s Word to find the foods that build strength and health.
When God’s foods are altered – such as GMO, pesticides that are still on the foods when we eat them, adding additives to processed foods – all these elements cause harm.
So, while we clean, cut, and cook food, that’s not the type of altering we’re talking about. Here, we’re talking about processing and modifying foods from their original state in ways such as those listed above.
When we stay as close to natural as possible with our food, our taste buds and our bodies will rejoice!
# 3 Don’t Let Any Drink or Food Become Your God
No one can serve two masters. This means when food is the most important part of your day, it’s become an idol or false god.
When you can’t stop eating or stop eating a certain food – it’s serving as a god.
When we crave food more than we crave time with the Lord, it’s become a god.
Food is ingrained in almost every element of life. But, the hold it often has on us can be broken. The powerful tools of prayer and fasting help us break these strongholds.
The Bible Diet is applying these three principles – the same principles that I have been teaching in churches, as a coach, and online since 2005 – because they work.
Eating according to the Bible diet, according to the principles above, leads to improved health: mentally, emotionally, spiritually, AND physically!
