GMO = Genetically Modified Organisms. Genetic engineering of our food supply is being called “Cell Invasion Technology.” Here’s a sobering video about GMOs found in 80% of the foods we find in our supermarkets (including GMO corn, canola, soybeans and sugar beets).
Whenever I think of Monsanto, I think of chemicals, carpeting…food? Believe-it-or-not, up to 90 percent of all major U.S. grown crops are grown with genetically engineered seed, and can be used in our food with little or no safety testing or labeling.
Since being introduced into the food supply, multiple chronic illnesses jumped from 7% to 13% of the population and food allergies doubled. This is yet another reason why I am telling more of my friends, readers and ministry associates about what Jordan Rubin is creating with Beyond Organic.
Scripturally speaking…see my comments below the video.
Scripturally speaking, 1 Timothy 4 speaks about the deception and “doctrines of demons” that will come in the last days. In part this includes “commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth” (1 Timothy 4:3).
Notice the italicized “which God created.” Genetically Modified Organisms invade the cellular integrity designed by God (much as bacteria or a virus would do). Injecting genes from cold water flounder into tomatoes so they can withstand colder temperatures (yes, that is really done) is not my idea of food which God created.
Okay, but the next verse many of us have used to bless the Triple-Decker Belly Bomber with fries we were about to eat:
“For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”
Doesn’t that cover us? I believe if we are evangelizing in a foreign country, for example, and handed an unusual something to eat (such as a monkey meat sandwich), we are definitely covered when we sanctify/bless the food “by the word of God and prayer.”
However, I question whether organisms man has “Frankensteined” into something else can qualify under the “every creature of God is good” category. Wouldn’t it be wise to avoid such foods whenever possible?
