¿Qué Tiene que Ver Conmigo? por Teófila Gottfried

¿Qué tiene que ver conmigo lo que dice la Biblia? ¿Sirve en estos días lo que se cuenta allí? ¿No son anticuadas sus enseñanzas? ¿Qué tengo que ver yo con gente que vivió hace dos, cuatro o seis mil años? ¿Es posible aplicar a mi vida algo de lo que dice la Biblia? ¿O los Diez Mandamientos es todo lo que enseña? En tal caso ¿puedo considerarme "buena persona" si los cumplo? Lo que leemos en la Biblia tiene que ver con todos los seres humanos, sean cristianos o judíos, ateos o agnósticos, budistas, musulmanes o adherentes a alguna de las filosofías o nuevas religiones que surgen en el mundo. ¿Por qué?

The Christian Bible on Food Combining


The "art" of food combining basically refers to knowing which foods can/should be eaten together at the same meal and which ones shouldn't. Proponents of food combining teach that indiscriminately consuming more than one kind of food at a time is the underlying and hidden cause of much discomfort after meals. They warn that ailments from heart burn to mild food poisoning are usually due to the improper mixing of foods.

According to one of the strongest advocates of this way of eating, "...Eating is the usual haphazard mixtures of bread with meat, bread with eggs, bread with cheese, bread with other protein, or potatoes with proteins. When one eats a hamburger or a hot dog, one does not eat his flesh first and then follow with his bun.... The stomach has no mechanism for separating these thoroughly intermixed substances and partitioning them off in separate compartments in its cavity" (Herbert M. Shelton, Food Combining Made Easy[San Antonio, TX: Willow Publishing, Inc., 1992], 19).

The author proceeds to encourage the practice of food combining by stating how animals tend to eat one food at a meal, that the carnivore doesn't mix starches with protein. He points out that birds consume insects at one period of the day and seeds at a different time. Therefore, he concludes that man should, "Eat protein foods and carbohydrate foods at separate meals." He emphasizes this as the second "rule" for proper food combining.

To follow such a rule requires, according to the author, abandoning meals such as hamburgers, hot dogs, ham on rye, eggs in potato salad, and sandwiches. While it is true that multiple course meals tend to cause discomfort; and discomfort, according to medical doctors, is usually a sign of something wrong, attempting to copy the eating habits of animals will also lead to incorrect deductions about food combining. How should the choice of which animals to imitate be made? Owls eat rodents whole, fur and all; dogs will eat their own vomit; many large snakes go days without eating; birds eat worms and no animals cook anything. How much can observing their dietary habits really offer to man?

Most people, including Christians, are surprised to learn just how much the Bible has to say about food combining and other topics related to health and diet. Does God's word really offer revelation on food combining? Yes, it does. The scripture of Matthew 14:16-20 records, "Jesus said unto them, 'They need not depart; give ye them to eat.' And they say unto him, 'We have here but five loaves and two fishes.' He said, 'Bring them hither to me.' And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass and took the five loaves and the two fishes and looking up to heaven he blessed and brake and gave the loaves to his disciples and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat and were filled...."

Was this not the mixing of protein (the fish) and carbohydrates (bread) at the same meal that the Lord Himself blessed and gave to the people to eat? This is a combination of foods that Shelton says is harmful to the body. The Lord created man and all food in existence; certainly, He knows what is good and what isn't. This doesn't not mean that studying food combining is of no use. Nevertheless, if people would learn to examine and compare all teachings on all subjects to God's Word, they would not be in so much confusion or error on food combining as well as on many other questions.
