Growing numbers say diet should reflect the divine
When Marilyn Lorenz of Alma, Mich., talks about living out her Catholic faith in daily life, she starts by describing what's inside her refrigerator.
The produce is grown on nearby farms, and the milk is organic and hormone-free. Meat comes from a local farmer who lets his animals graze freely and doesn't use antibiotics.
"Packing animals in factory farms, I think, is against God's wishes," says Lorenz, who changed her shopping and eating habits after a speaker at her parish broached the issues in 2007. "It isn't something my faith could ever support."...

That's right. Instead of quaking in our boots at the Muslim boogeyman, we should be paying attention to the real terrorists who are not only terrorizing people over the ocean, but right here at home as well.
The feds are making it a regular habit to raid the small organic farms, stealing all their food and killing all their animals, hauling them into court, walking off with their guns, computers, and anything else they choose to take for "evidence."
Govt thugs acting on behalf of corporate America. They are not going to let us grow vegetables in our own yard.
They're coming for all of us. Better to face that fact now, not be shocked when it happens to you, and speak up NOW.
I've been a daily runner for 30 years so was able to eat anything I wanted for years with no ill effects or weight gain. When I turned 40 (1996), my metabolism slowed down dramatically. I kept running but also kept eating anything and everything I wanted. In ten years I went from 170 pounds to 225 pounds. I was a real pig but didn't realize it because I'm pretty tall.
I woke up one night right after I turned age 50 (2006) with a nosebleed that would not stop. I went to the hospital and my BP was 190/100 & my cholesterol was 300.
The doctor immediately prescribed three BP pills and a cholesterol medicine. He told me I had to take them for as long as I live. Period. He told me if the vessel had burst in my head rather than my nose I would have died.
I immediately quit eating meat and sweets, kept running and lost 50 pounds. Six months later the same doctor told me I no longer needed the pills and that the change was remarkable. Praise God!
Every day now I eat an apple for breakfast, a salad (no meat or cheese) for lunch and usually my wife makes veggies for dinner. If I snack on anything, it's usually dry, whole grain cereal. My jeans went from a 38 to a 32, I quit snoring and now I feel great everyday!
Hi Banned, and thanks for sharing about the things you eat. Where I am, if I talk to other belevers about the Hallelujah Diet, I get a whole load of abuse, so it is nice to speak openly about this subject to another believer in Christ. Thanks also to Jessica Dawson, for your input.
Let me give a short testimony, which is just plain, basic facts, verifiable, and with no ulterior motive like hoping to make money from it.
Until recently I ate the same as everyone else. My favourite meal was lamb, with boiled and roast potatoes, fresh garden peas, brussels, colly, and lashings of gravy.
A few years ago, my GP said I had high cholesterol levels, and would need to go on tablets for life. I also had high blood pressure, which was dangerous for me, as I had two inoperable aneurisms in my head. So BP tablets for life. I also suffered vast numbers of migraine, again tablets for life. Since starting the diet my GP has said I no longer need the cholesterol tablets, and currently am working with him to come off BP tablets, and migraines are few and far between.
Here, the guv subsidises prescriptions, so they make no money from tablets directly. But the pharmaceutical companies (guess who?) are making a huge dollop out of sickness. And I don't like that!

John, I'm so glad to find out you are one of those health nutters. Me too. I'm not raw only vegetarian tho, and I'm surviving on venison this winter. Jesus ate fish and they killed the fatted calf in the OT. Proverbs says a lazy man doesn't bother to cook his meat. I belong to Weston A. Price Foundation, which teaches meat as being one of the healthies foods, also unpasturized milk, provided both are from grass fed cows sans hormones and antibiotics. We milk our goats here, but not in the winter. Eggs from pastured eggs contain all the fat soluable vitamins: D, E, K, A plus the proper omegas. Mercola lately has been harping on rampant vitamin D deficiency,that we've been scammed again about sunscreens, that they only filter out the good rays that keep us healthy.

Very good post. This isn't about PETA or giving animals equal rights with people. It's about basic kindness and mercy to creatures that are being tortured, and whose dead bodies are full of toxins and poisons and then fed to other animals and humans. It's also about closing down the family farm and turning the few remaining farms into factories that grow their food through weed killer and pesticides, that plant corn with built in pesticides that when fed to rats will kill the rats and if a corn borer should dare to take a bite will fall over dead.
And our foods are full of horrid poisons, and everybody is obese and sick and the life spans are getting shorter and shorter, and the cures are denied us, cures that involve a diet of wholesome food, water free of fluoride and chlorine and toxic waste.
This is all about eugenics, soft kill, and it is deliberate. We are under attack by people who think we are like lice in the schoolyard, and they have yet to pull out their full armory against us to depopulate the world from the lowly serfs and goyim.

I am disgusted with the way many animals are raised for the market. Like the blood from slaughtered cows being given to the baby cows instead of milk. - With cutting off chickens beaks and they are in a cage where they cannot see the light of day, or turn around. - With Canada allowing a drug to be used in the raising of cattle, that other countries have banned. This because it has been proven to lead to breast cancer. - With feeding animals that given their choice would only eat grains, grasses and silage and feeding them the remains of other animals, road kill, animals who have died from sickness etc... - With fish farms that have lice and end up spreading lice to the little baby wild salmon. - With store bought ground beef, where hundreds of cows meat is ground and all mixed together. Then if their is contaminated meat, it harms more people. - With the self regulatory of meat plants and meat being passed that has not been cleaned (gutted and insides washed properly), thus spreading the e coli from the innards (feces in the intestines) into the meat.
It's probably been a few years now since I came across that site, and those prayer articles have stuck. Never read or heard anyone speak against prayer meetings. The ones I've attended just didn't seem right, so I relate to what the man is saying.
You've done it again. How is it that you've discovered a website which, on the face of it, seems to hold all things which are dear to myself, and which, having read that article on prayer, I am wonderfully thrilled at?
I will bookmark it immediately.
But, it's based in South WALES, and the webmaster is a pastor in SWANSEA. Is this possible? Can it be true? I am going to find out, sure I am.
I must turn in shortly, and try to get possession of the Land of Nod again, so I wish you and all else a G'night, and may God grant us all understanding.
Had to hit the marketplace, and get some heavenly sunlight.
I'll probably step out shortly to hit B&N (no more ma and pa bookstores left) to look at some magazines that I don't intend to buy. As long as I purchase some poison coffee they're ok with that!

Oh yes, those ones that keep asking all kinds of personal questions while demanding loads of paperwork. Aren't they lovely?

Oh and a very important part of the Hallelujah Diet is the avoidance of stress and worry. These too are killers. As is lack of sunshine, lack of pure drinking water, lack of enzyme filled foods, poor nutrition, salt and sugar, blah, blah, blah.
What "providentially speaking" has said is rather interesting. It seems, especially considering Dr. Joel Wallach's (trace mineral guy) research, that the peoples living the longest don't worry about health. Is it because they are not "civilized?" The problem, however, that we "civilized" peoples are having is that the food supply is not only controlled it has been corrupted, whereas the food really isn't food anymore, even though it fills the belly. Therefore, since we're being attacked we should be concerned about what the enemy is doing and why. On the other hand, too much worry and stress can not only defeat the purpose, but can also choke the word.

But that's my whole point, my dear old turnip.
Whenever my Christian friends have got sick, they go running off to the secular ungodly doctor for advice on what to do. They are not trusting in God to heal them, they want the world to heal them.
An example: A Baptist goes to his GP with some pain. The GP tells him that he has a severe fatal illness, and that he will be dead within 6 months. But that there is a procedure, which, if he agrees to submit to it, will restore his health, minus a few bodily parts. What does the Baptist do? He submits to the world's way and gets a cure, prolonging his life.
But if God has set the date of death, why go to all that trouble?
Did you know that every cell in your body is replaced regularly? Replaced with what? Substandard cells, because of ating junk food, or good cells because of eating good food.
When men were on Gen 1:29 diet, how long did they live for?
