Vs. 4 – “Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last day, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation –”
- Okay, now, I know that the hearts of conspiring men are created through the heart, (or LACK, thereof) of a conspiring devil (that devil, being Satan). I know that these conspiring men create drugs and alcohol and tobacco. But these vices are not of any consequence to ME. I am not tempted by these things. My vices are the unhealthy foods that have been developed by these so called “conspiring men”.
- So ARE the creators of unhealthy foods actually “conspiring”? Probably not intentionally! But the fact that there are more unhealthy food choices in the world today, than here are healthy choices, tells me that Satan has had a hand in this somewhere along the way. His hooks are in the lips of the manufacturers of processed foods. They are screaming out, “Give me more money!” All of the crap out there lures us in with it’s wonderfully strong flavors and it’s addictive-ness…. its’ crunch, it’s chewiness, it’s fluffiness, it’s sweetness, it’s highs. And so we buy and we eat, and we sneak, and we gorge…. and then we feel sick, and we have gas, and we get constipated, and we become addicted, and we become lazy and dependent… and then we feel guilty, and we kick ourselves, and we put on weight, and we make excuses, and we feel bad about ourselves… ans so we eat more for a quick high.
Holy Cow! This has SATAN written all over it!
