An apple a day - sufficient? (07/23/2006)
From: David Foss

Galesville, Wis.

An apple a day would not sustain life indefinitely. We need a variety of food to sustain life. No one would be foolish enough to say, "Bah! Humbug! I can do without it!" If we were to make such an asinine statement, the guys with the straightjackets would come and deliver us to a padded cell.

It is important that we eat well-balanced meals as often as we can. Our health should be very important to us. Would any sane person say, "I don't want good health! I want illness and disease!" Oh, oh! Here comes the psychoanalyst! Perhaps free room and board at the taxpayer's expense?

Is there anything more important than good food? Of course. It is a relationship with Jesus Christ. If we refuse to eat food we will soon purchase the farm, but what happens after our last breath is taken? If we refuse to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and His perfect food (the Bible), we will still have eternal life, but where will our eternal abode be - heaven or hell?

The spiritual, godly food we ingest is not to be mixed with unspiritual, satanic food. This kind of contamination would warrant such food useless. Some food appears to be good, but it could be spoiled and hazardous to our health. It would not be foolish to be overly cautious about the kind of food we ingest. We should always check it out. We must remember that our guarantee of heavenly citizenship comes solely from God and good food (Biblical), our guarantee of hellish citizenship comes solely from Satan and bad food (satanical).

God does expect us to have a beneficial, steady diet of Bible reading, Bible study, and Biblical memorization. God says that this is the responsibility of every couple. Our parents should have instilled this most important practice in us by the time our childhood and teenage years have passed. Deuteronomy 6:5-7

Yes, it is each couple's responsibility to feed their children a good, beneficial portion of spiritual food - daily. As parents, we need to send our children out into the world well-nourished (spiritually) so they will never accept Satan's temptable, deceptive food. Ephesians 6:11

Absence of Biblical food or just a few bits and pieces of Biblical food will not suffice. To protect us from Satan's unscriptural food we need a daily smorgasbord of scriptural food. If we are malnourished, Satan will see our weakened condition and we may be susceptible to accepting Satan's rotten, accursed food.

If parents would do as God commands in Deuteronomy 6:5-7, it would be highly unlikely that these well-fed children would go the way of the world. These children will have been fed the word of God a great number of times. These feedings would add up to a minimum of 21,700 spiritual meals before they would leave home. Wow! Nothing could be better for our children than for them to stay full of spiritual food. Why? Because they will now know what is good food (God's) and what is bad food (Satan's).

Yes, an apple a day is good, but it is far from sufficient.

Ponder Deuteronomy 6:5-7
