Do Not Add Or Subtract

75% of all colon cancers can be stopped with proper diet. This year alone, 56,000 Americans are expected to die from colon cancer. The article specifically mentioned eight things to do: get lots of folic acid; choose olive oil; don’t drink alcohol; go for fruits and vegetables; curb bad carbohydrates; restrict red meat; don’t neglect fiber; and lose weight. All of these directives were formally endorsed by God thousands of years ago. Man is just beginning to understand it.

Do Not Add Or Subtract

Article#: 722

Psalms, Chapter 9, Verse 9:

The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

Beautiful, beautiful words. Every morning when you arise, two roads are before you. One is the road that is wide and well traveled. I refer to it as Route 7 South, Disobedience. This road is simple to travel: just do what comes naturally and follow the crowd, but this road leads to death. The other route is Route 7 North, Obedience, which is better known as the narrow path of life where there are only a few found traveling it. This traveler must reject the line of the natural and walk in the supernatural power of the Lord Jesus Christ. Automatic pilot will not work here, but every saint who travels Route 7 North presses into it. When you rise up every morning, choose life and live. For those of you who have not found the narrow path of life, please click on to "Further With Jesus," on this site. NOW FOR TODAY'S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, in Psalms, Chapter 18, Verse 30:

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in Him.

GOD SAID, in Psalms, Chapter 19, Verse 7:

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

GOD SAID, in Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3, Verse 14:

I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before Him.

GOD SAID, in Proverbs Chapter 30, Verses 5-6:

5 Every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

6 Add thou not unto his words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

MAN SAID: The Bible is a very fallible and flawed book, written by mere humans. Man also said that there is no God, he is just a simple form of invisible energy or non-distinct supreme being.

Now THE RECORD. Man has long been monkeying around and altering the fundamentals of life, trumpeting his "accomplishments" with great fanfare. He has spoken with authority and scientific-medical aplomb convincing the masses of the superior nature of his achievements, only to the demise of the general population, physically, and mentally.

Remember, what God does is perfect and if you add or subtract you'll be found a liar.

The credibility of the word of God is literally found everywhere. It becomes very obvious when you see man's contrary position to God's words and the deadly consequences of this opposition. This demonstration in itself testifies of the veracity of God's word.

One good example is found in God's designing of the female breast for the purpose of nurturing her young. During the 1950's and 1960's, medical science said they had a better way-formula. A huge percentage of the world's infant population have been and are being, formula-fed. The results are truly devastating. Mountains of information continually pour in exposing the damaging results of man's input, yet many still cling to the errors of the past. (See "Breast-Feeding" on this web site.) Man changed the words and his promise of great benefit became a lie.

The following information will help drive home the point. Nearly 50% of all Americans 60 to 80 years of age have diverticulosis and nearly 100% of all Americans over 80 have this potentially dreadful problem. A diverticulum is a small alien pouch that protrudes from the colon and when one has many of these pouches they are called diverticula. It's called diverticulitis when the pouches become infected. This national epidemic is a result of man changing God's formula.

The following excerpt concerning diverticulosis is from an article written by T. Dajer who is the assistant director of the emergency department at New York University Downtown Hospital in Manhattan:

The rise of the disease in England around World War I has been attributed to changes in the way flour was made some 30 years earlier, when mills began removing two-thirds of the wheat's fiber during processing. Other evidence also supports a link to a lack of dietary fiber. Diverticulosis is nonexistant in rural sub-Saharan Africans, who eat a fiber-rich diet, yet it is common among the city dwellers of Johannesburg. Studies of rats have shown that those fed on a low-fiber diet have five times the incidence of diverticulosis as those fed a roughage-rich diet.

What God does, according to the Bible, is perfect, and when man adds or subtracts, it can only become imperfect, yielding devastating results. Men subtracted from God's perfect wheat, removing the wheat germ and the bran, leaving us with white flour, with its end result being diverticulosis and sundry other problems we're just beginning to recognize. An old bread baker who worked in a large bakery once told me that the rationale for removing the germ and the bran from wheat was in part to solve rat infestation problems. According to the baker, all it took to keep the rats from eating the flour was to remove the germ and the bran. The rat figured it out.

In an article by J. Carper titled "Stop a Killer In Its Tracks," it was noted that 75% of all colon cancers can be stopped with proper diet. This year alone, 56,000 Americans are expected to die from colon cancer. The article specifically mentioned eight things to do: get lots of folic acid; choose olive oil; don't drink alcohol; go for fruits and vegetables; curb bad carbohydrates; restrict red meat; don't neglect fiber; and lose weight. All of these directives were formally endorsed by God thousands of years ago. Man is just beginning to understand it. But in particular, let us consider olive oil.

The fruits of the olive tree--its olives, its leaves, and its oil--are acclaimed in the scriptures scores and scores of times. God's directives in the uses of olive oil are well defined. (See "Olive Oil" on this web site.) Remember, what God does is perfect. If you add to it or subtract from it, your efforts will be found a lie. Man fully disregarded God's directive for the consumption of olive oil and instead chose lard, vegetable oil, corn oil, margarine, etc. Man spoke with authority. His voice dripped with sophisiticated verbage, but the end result was and is death.

The following is an excerpt from the article mentioned above:

Though fat is a suspected colon cancer villain, a new British study of diet and cancer in 28 countries, including the USA, concludes that high consumers of olive oil have a lower rate of colon cancer. That jibes with animal research showing olive oil suppresses colon tumor growth. Corn oil and animal fat increase colon cancer in animals; fish oil doesn't. Also harmful: trans fatty acids (the partially hydrogenated fats in some margarines, baked goods and processed foods). University of Utah researchers report that a diet high in trans fats doubled older women's risk of colon cancer.

Man has made substitutes and said those substitutions were better, but perfection cannot be improved upon. Man has added to and subtracted from God's perfection, and the results of his efforts have been deadly.

There are two roads in front of us...we should choose life and live.

Now you have THE RECORD.
