Does God have a health plan for us? This is something that many people discuss and argue about all the time. Since the beginning of time God has always had a health plan for his children. In the beginning of time, God gave Adam and Eve before sin what it is that they could eat and couldn’t eat. “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed … and every tree … yielding seed.” “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat.” Genesis 1:29; 2:16. When sin entered the Earth, the plan shifted just a bit but it still remained in the realms of things that are clean vs. those that are unclean. In Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14, it talks about all of those animals that are considered clean and those that are unclean. Those that are clean are good to eat and those that are unclean was never intended by God to be a part of our diet. For example some animals that are considered clean would be chicken, beef, fish with scales and fins, etc. Some of which are considered unclean would be pork, lobsters, shellfish, things that creep the earth, are considered to be unclean and shouldn’t be eaten.
An additional argument that’s made was that this was only intended for the Jews and no one else. Well if we go back to the time of Noah, Noah was very well aware of the animals that were considered clean and unclean and this was obviously way before Jews were even in existence.
So what does all of this mean? What this means is that God, the creator of all things, including you knows what is good for you and what isn’t. He knows the purpose of each animal that he created and exactly what their function should be. So if you say you love God, then isn’t important to do what he asks of you.
