I was listening to a podcast by a survivalist and he came down hard on wheat and what a terrible thing it was for us to eat. He gave the impression that it would destroy our digestive tract. It should be no surprise that he was on a low carb kick.
I have news for you. Bread is one of the universal elements of human diet. It may take different forms from tortillas to sour dough rolls, but it is basic. So much so that Jesus could say this and be understood.
(John 6:35 KJV) And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.Everyone understood what He meant. Bread is basic. It is hard for bread to be basic and low carb to be healthy but the modern culture does not accept the teaching of the Bible. It also seems to reject basic facts and logic.
We find bread from the earliest references. When Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden we find bread being mentioned.
(Genesis 3:19 KJV) In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.I guess you could argue that Adam was doomed to eat bread because of the creation of sin in the Garden. You might say that he was a salad and fruit man before that and I am not sure I could argue with you but I still see that bread is basic.
What other foods are given good press by the Bible?
