  • -THIS PRESENTATION IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE FRIENDS OF THE
  • 00:00:02.090 --> 00:00:04.230
  • AMAZING FACTS MINISTRY.
  • 00:00:04.240 --> 00:00:06.290
  • -IN JANUARY 2010, A MINIVAN STRUCK AND KILLED A MAN CROSSING
  • 00:00:09.170 --> 00:00:13.200
  • A BROOKLYN STREET - ESPECIALLY TRAGIC BECAUSE THIS WAS NO
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:17.260
  • ORDINARY MAN. JOE ROLLINO WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:00:17.270 --> 00:00:21.120
  • 105 YEARS OLD IN MARCH. HIS FRIENDS SAID HE WAS
  • 00:00:21.130 --> 00:00:24.230
  • THE MODEL OF HEALTH. A WORLD WAR II VET WITH THREE
  • 00:00:24.240 --> 00:00:28.060
  • PURPLE HEARTS, ROLLINO GOT HIS START IN THE 1920S AT THE CONEY
  • 00:00:28.070 --> 00:00:31.270
  • ISLAND CARNIVAL, BILLED AS 'THE STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD'.
  • 00:00:31.280 --> 00:00:36.110
  • FIVE-FEET FIVE-INCHES TALL AND WEIGHING 150 POUNDS, FOR HIS
  • 00:00:36.120 --> 00:00:40.210
  • SIZE HE WAS ONE OF THE STRONGEST MEN EVER.
  • 00:00:40.220 --> 00:00:44.060
  • HE COULD MOVE 3200 POUNDS WITH HIS BACK, LIFT 475 POUNDS WITH
  • 00:00:44.070 --> 00:00:49.100
  • HIS TEETH, AND 635 POUNDS HE COULD LIFT WITH ONE FINGER.
  • 00:00:49.110 --> 00:00:55.050
  • AT JOE ROLLINO'S 103RD BIRTHDAY PARTY, A FRIEND GAVE HIM A
  • 00:00:55.060 --> 00:00:58.070
  • QUARTER AND ROLLINO BENT IT WITH HIS FINGERS.
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:01:01.200
  • HE THEN APOLOGIZED BECAUSE HE USED TO DO IT WITH A DIME.
  • 00:01:01.210 --> 00:01:05.110
  • DID I MENTION THAT JOE ROLLINO DIDN'T DRINK OR SMOKE, HE
  • 00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:08.210
  • EXERCISED DAILY, AND HE WAS A LIFE-LONG VEGETARIAN?
  • 00:01:08.220 --> 00:01:12.190
  • YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE ALSO MAKES A CONNECTION BETWEEN A VERY STRONG
  • 00:01:12.200 --> 00:01:15.280
  • MAN AND A UNIQUE LIFESTYLE. THE BIBLE SAYS SAMSON DID NOT
  • 00:01:15.290 --> 00:01:20.020
  • DRINK AND HE STAYED AWAY FROM UNCLEAN FOODS.
  • 00:01:20.030 --> 00:01:23.110
  • WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE TO A HEALTHY 100?
  • 00:01:23.120 --> 00:01:25.290
  • ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WHEN WE FOLLOW GOD'S HEALTH PLAN.
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:29.160
  • SO JOIN ME NOW, AS WE TAKE A DEEPER LOOK INTO THIS
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:32.090
  • LIFE-CHANGING SUBJECT.
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:34.170
  • -TONIGHT I'M GOING TO BE
  • 00:01:38.130 --> 00:01:39.200
  • SHARING A TOPIC THAT I THINK THE CHRISTIAN WORLD IS LONG OVERDUE
  • 00:01:39.210 --> 00:01:48.000
  • TO UNDERSTAND THIS ISSUE AND PEOPLE HAVE SUFFERED GREATLY
  • 00:01:48.010 --> 00:01:52.060
  • BECAUSE THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS PRINCIPLE FROM THE BIBLE
  • 00:01:52.070 --> 00:01:55.180
  • THAT IS VERY PRACTICAL. NOW, OUR MESSAGE TONIGHT IS
  • 00:01:55.190 --> 00:02:00.220
  • DEALING WITH THE SUBJECT OF HEALING, HEALTH AND HOLINESS.
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:05.060
  • IT BEGINS WITH A STORY THAT YOU FIND IN A BOOK OF PROPHECY AND
  • 00:02:05.070 --> 00:02:09.200
  • IT'S IN DANIEL CHAPTER 1. IT TELLS THAT AFTER KING
  • 00:02:09.210 --> 00:02:12.270
  • NEBUCHADNEZZAR HAD CONQUERED BABYLON, HE TOOK SOME OF THE -
  • 00:02:12.280 --> 00:02:17.120
  • THE BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST OF THE NATION AND HE BROUGHT THEM
  • 00:02:17.130 --> 00:02:20.020
  • WITH HIM BACK TO BABYLON AND HE SAID, 'LOOK, WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:23.070
  • TRAIN YOU IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE CHALDEANS.
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:25.160
  • WE'RE GOING TO FEED YOU FROM OUR CAFETERIA FOR THREE YEARS AND
  • 00:02:25.170 --> 00:02:28.250
  • WE'RE GOING TO PREPARE TO YOU TO BE AMBASSADORS REPRESENTING YOUR
  • 00:02:28.260 --> 00:02:31.240
  • PART OF THE WORLD AND GO TO THE UNIVERSITY OF BABYLON.' AND YOU
  • 00:02:31.250 --> 00:02:37.140
  • THINK, 'WELL, THAT WILL BE REALLY GOOD.
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:38.210
  • YOU'D BE EATING FROM THE BABYLONIAN CAFETERIA.'
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:41.140
  • BUT THERE'S A PROBLEM WITH THAT. BABYLONIANS ATE THINGS THAT GOD
  • 00:02:41.150 --> 00:02:47.040
  • HAD TOLD HIS PEOPLE THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO EAT.
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:49.270
  • SO DANIEL AND HIS THREE FRIENDS THAT HAD BEEN CARRIED OFF TO
  • 00:02:49.280 --> 00:02:52.150
  • BABYLON: SHADRACH, MESHACH, ABEDNEGO - THEIR HEBREW NAMES
  • 00:02:52.160 --> 00:02:57.000
  • WERE HANANIAH, MISHAEL, AZARIAH - THEY SAID, 'WE CAN'T EAT THAT.
  • 00:02:57.010 --> 00:03:00.250
  • PLEASE LET US EAT PULSE' - OR VEGETABLES - 'AND JUST GIVE US A
  • 00:03:00.260 --> 00:03:06.000
  • CHANCE.' AND THE MAN WHO WAS IN CHARGE OF THE EUNUCHS, HE SAID,
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:09.010
  • 'I CAN'T DO THAT BECAUSE IF YOU START LOOKING SCRAWNY AND SICK,
  • 00:03:09.020 --> 00:03:12.110
  • I'M RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR HEALTH AND EDUCATION - MY HEAD'LL BE ON
  • 00:03:12.120 --> 00:03:15.260
  • THE BLOCK.' THEY SAID, 'YOU GIVE US TEN DAYS.' NOTICE IT SAYS IN
  • 00:03:15.270 --> 00:03:19.210
  • DANIEL 1, VERSE 8, "BUT DANIEL PURPOSED IN HIS HEART THAT HE
  • 00:03:19.220 --> 00:03:23.010
  • WOULD NOT DEFILE" - HE WOULD NOT WHAT?
  • 00:03:23.020 --> 00:03:25.130
  • -DEFILE. -"DEFILE HIMSELF WITH A
  • 00:03:25.140 --> 00:03:28.070
  • PORTION OF THE KING'S MEAT." SO THEY PROPOSED, TO ASHPENAZ,
  • 00:03:28.080 --> 00:03:33.040
  • PRINCE OF THE EUNUCHS, "PROVE YOUR SERVANTS" - 'TEST US' -
  • 00:03:33.050 --> 00:03:36.110
  • "FOR TEN DAYS, LET US HAVE PULSE TO EAT AND WATER TO DRINK."
  • 00:03:36.120 --> 00:03:40.050
  • - 'WE'RE NOT GOING TO EAT THE BABYLONIAN FOOD AND THE
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:41.280
  • FERMENTED WINE.' AND THE BIBLE SAYS HE CONSENTED TO THAT - "AND
  • 00:03:41.290 --> 00:03:47.090
  • AT THE END OF THE TEN DAYS THEIR COUNTENANCES APPEARED FAIRER AND
  • 00:03:47.100 --> 00:03:50.260
  • FATTER IN FLESH" - YOU KNOW, THEY HAD JUST COME ACROSS THE
  • 00:03:50.270 --> 00:03:53.270
  • DESERT - AND "...HE FOUND THEM TEN TIMES BETTER" - SMARTER -
  • 00:03:53.280 --> 00:03:58.110
  • "THAN ALL THE MAGICIANS AND ASTROLOGERS WHO WERE IN ALL HIS
  • 00:03:58.120 --> 00:04:02.100
  • REALM." AND THE FIRST CHAPTER OF DANIEL
  • 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:05.050
  • CLOSES BY SAYING, "AND DANIEL CONTINUED UNTIL THE TIME OF KING
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:08.230
  • CYRUS" - DANIEL LIVED TO ABOUT A HUNDRED YEARS OF AGE.
  • 00:04:08.240 --> 00:04:12.170
  • HE MUST HAVE BEEN 15 TO 17 WHEN HE WAS CARRIED OFF.
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:16.170
  • SO, IT'S INTERESTING THAT, AT THIS VERY IMPORTANT BOOK OF
  • 00:04:16.180 --> 00:04:21.060
  • PROPHECY IT WOULD MAKE A POINT THAT DANIEL AND HIS FRIENDS HAD
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:25.190
  • PURPOSED THEY WOULD TAKE CARE OF THEIR BODIES EVEN WHEN THEY WERE
  • 00:04:25.200 --> 00:04:29.080
  • TEMPTED BY THEIR SURROUNDINGS AND EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS SOCIAL
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:32.100
  • PRESSURE TO COMPROMISE, THEY SAID, 'NO, THIS IS WHAT GOD SAYS
  • 00:04:32.110 --> 00:04:35.000
  • ABOUT TREATING OUR BODIES AS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WE
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:38.270
  • WILL NOT DEFILE OUR BODIES. THIS IS A TRUTH THAT HAS BEEN
  • 00:04:38.280 --> 00:04:43.180
  • LOST BY MUCH OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND IT'S AN AREA WHERE
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:47.040
  • THERE NEEDS TO BE REVIVAL AND REFORMATION, AND THAT'S
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:50.040
  • ALSO TRUE EVEN WITHIN OUR DENOMINATION.
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:54.050
  • LET'S LOOK AT OUR LESSON. IT'S GOING TO BRING
  • 00:04:54.060 --> 00:04:55.240
  • OUT A NUMBER OF POINTS. FIRST QUESTION: WHAT WAS THE
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:58.280
  • ORIGINAL DIET THAT GOD DESIGNED FOR HUMANS?
  • 00:04:58.290 --> 00:05:02.150
  • YOU READ IN GENESIS 1, VERSE 29, "AND GOD SAID, 'BEHOLD, I HAVE
  • 00:05:02.160 --> 00:05:07.020
  • GIVEN YOU EVERY HERB BEARING SEED AND IN EVERY TREE IN WHICH
  • 00:05:07.030 --> 00:05:12.140
  • IS THE FRUIT OF A TREE YIELDING SEED; TO YOU IT SHALL BE FOR
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:15.240
  • MEAT." AND THE WORD 'MEAT' THERE, IT'S
  • 00:05:15.250 --> 00:05:17.180
  • KING JAMES - IT JUST MEANS 'FOR FOOD'.
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:19.090
  • AND SO, THE ORIGINAL DIET THAT GOD GAVE TO MAN WAS A VEGETARIAN
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:25.070
  • DIET CONTAIN - IT WAS ACTUALLY FRUITS, GRAINS, AND NUTS - BEANS
  • 00:05:25.080 --> 00:05:30.010
  • - BUT LATER GOD EXPANDED THE DIET.
  • 00:05:30.020 --> 00:05:33.060
  • THAT'S THE NEXT QUESTION: AFTER ADAM AND EVE SINNED, - WHEN THEY
  • 00:05:33.070 --> 00:05:36.140
  • WERE EVICTED FROM THE GARDEN OF EDEN, THEY COULD NO LONGER EAT
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:38.200
  • FROM THE TREE OF LIFE. GOD THEN SAID, 'ALRIGHT, I
  • 00:05:38.210 --> 00:05:41.090
  • WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING SUPPLEMENTAL.'
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:43.110
  • WHAT WAS ADDED TO THEIR DIET AT THAT POINT?
  • 00:05:43.120 --> 00:05:46.290
  • GENESIS 3, VERSE 18 HE SAID, "YOU SHALL EAT THE HERB OF THE
  • 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:51.160
  • FIELD." - MEANING VEGETABLES. NOW, I FIND SOMETIMES PEOPLE
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:56.110
  • DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FRUIT AND A VEGETABLE.
  • 00:05:56.120 --> 00:05:59.190
  • LET ME TEST YOU. APPLE. -FRUIT.
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:04.170
  • -FRUIT. ORANGE? -FRUIT.
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:06.130
  • -ZUCCHINI? -FRUIT. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:06.140 --> 00:06:10.290
  • -SEE? FRUIT. ONION? -VEGETABLE.
  • 00:06:11.000 --> 00:06:17.230
  • -VEGETABLE. BRUSSELS SPROUTS? -VEGETABLE.
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:22.060
  • -INEDIBLE. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:26.160
  • -IT'S REAL SIMPLE: THAT ANYTHING THAT IS THE
  • 00:06:26.170 --> 00:06:29.020
  • PRODUCT OF THE BLOSSOM IS THE FRUIT.
  • 00:06:29.030 --> 00:06:32.000
  • AND ANYTHING THAT'S ANY OTHER PART OF THE PLANT, WHETHER IT'S
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:34.100
  • THE STALK OR THE LEAVES OR THE BULBS, IT'S A VEGETABLE.
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:38.100
  • AND SO, AFTER ADAM AND EVE AND, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF KIDS OUT
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:43.260
  • THERE ARE REALLY SORRY THAT ADAM AND EVE SINNED BECAUSE THEY
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:46.060
  • DIDN'T WANT VEGETABLES ADDED TO THEIR DIET.
  • 00:06:46.070 --> 00:06:48.280
  • BUT AFTER THEY SINNED AND THEY WERE TOLD THEY COULD NO LONGER
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:51.040
  • STAY IN THE GARDEN, GOD SAID, 'YOU CAN ALSO EAT THE HERB OF
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:53.160
  • THE FIELD.' BUT THE ORIGINAL DIET FOR MAN WAS A VEGETARIAN
  • 00:06:53.170 --> 00:06:56.110
  • DIET. AND - I'LL JUST TELL YOU
  • 00:06:56.120 --> 00:07:00.050
  • RIGHT NOW, I AM BIASED. I'M A VEGETARIAN.
  • 00:07:00.060 --> 00:07:04.090
  • I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO CONSIDER IT.
  • 00:07:04.100 --> 00:07:06.040
  • THE BIBLE DOES NOT REQUIRE YOU TO BE A VEGETARIAN.
  • 00:07:06.050 --> 00:07:09.090
  • BUT ARE YOU AWARE THAT WE WILL BE VEGETARIANS IN HEAVEN?
  • 00:07:09.100 --> 00:07:12.220
  • -AMEN. -YES -AMEN.
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:14.040
  • -WHEN GOD ASKED ADAM TO NAME THE ANIMALS, HE DID NOT LOOK AT
  • 00:07:14.050 --> 00:07:17.100
  • THE COW AND SAY, 'WHOPPER'. (LAUGHTER) AND HE DID NOT
  • 00:07:17.110 --> 00:07:20.220
  • LOOK AT THE CHICKENS AND SAY, 'MCNUGGETS'.
  • 00:07:20.230 --> 00:07:22.240
  • (LAUGHTER) YOU KNOW, HE WAS SUPPOSED TO PROTECT THEM, HE
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:27.010
  • WASN'T SUPPOSED TO THINK ABOUT EATING THEM.
  • 00:07:27.020 --> 00:07:29.040
  • AND IT WASN'T UNTIL AFTER SIN AND ESPECIALLY AFTER THE FLOOD
  • 00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:32.190
  • THAT ANIMALS BECAME A PART OF THE DIET.
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.200
  • WHAT MAMMALS DOES GOD SAY WE COULD EAT?
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:37.070
  • NOW, I TOLD YOU I'M A VEGETARIAN. I ENCOURAGE THAT.
  • 00:07:37.080 --> 00:07:41.010
  • BUT THE BIBLE DOES SAY YOU'RE GOING TO EAT MEAT, BUT THEN IT
  • 00:07:41.020 --> 00:07:43.030
  • SAYS IF YOU'RE GOING TO EAT MEAT THERE ARE SOME CRITERIA.
  • 00:07:43.040 --> 00:07:46.220
  • YOU CAN READ ABOUT THIS IN LEVITICUS 11, VERSE 3, "WHATEVER
  • 00:07:46.230 --> 00:07:50.250
  • PARTS THE HOOF, AND IS CLOVEN FOOTED AND CHEWS THE CUD, THESE
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:56.020
  • YOU CAN EAT." SO IT NEEDED TO HAVE A
  • 00:07:56.030 --> 00:07:58.190
  • CLOVEN HOOF - IT NEEDED BOTH CHARACTERISTICS, NOT JUST ONE.
  • 00:07:58.200 --> 00:08:04.200
  • BUT EVEN SOME MEAT IS NOT HEALTHY.
  • 00:08:04.210 --> 00:08:07.110
  • FOR INSTANCE, YOU KNOW A CAMEL?
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:08.290
  • A CAMEL CHEWS THE CUD BUT IT'S GOT A PAW.
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:12.140
  • NOW SOME OF YOU ARE REALLY BOTHERED BY THAT BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:08:12.150 --> 00:08:14.110
  • GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE THE CAMEL OUT OF YOUR FRIDGE TONIGHT RIGHT
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:17.100
  • AFTER (LAUGHTER) WELL, YOU KNOW, THIS WAS A PROBLEM IN CHRIST'S
  • 00:08:17.110 --> 00:08:20.050
  • TIME. HE SAID, 'YOU STRAIN A GNAT AND
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:21.180
  • YOU SWALLOW A CAMEL' - WHICH IS UNCLEAN.
  • 00:08:21.190 --> 00:08:24.020
  • HE SAID, 'YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT GETTING A LITTLE BITTY BUG IN
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:25.210
  • YOUR WATER, BUT THEN YOU GO EAT CAMEL STEAK WHEN YOU GO HOME AND
  • 00:08:25.220 --> 00:08:28.050
  • GOD SAYS IT'S UNCLEAN. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN AROUND CAMELS? I HAVE.
  • 00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:34.160
  • YEAH. I WOULDN'T WANT TO EAT ONE.
  • 00:08:34.170 --> 00:08:36.130
  • NOW, SOME THINGS, THEY CHEW THE CUD BUT THEY DON'T HAVE A CLOVEN
  • 00:08:36.140 --> 00:08:41.150
  • HOOF. AND THEN THERE'S A COUPLE OF
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:42.260
  • ANIMALS THAT HAVE A CLOVEN HOOF, BUT THEY DON'T CHEW THE CUD.
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:46.040
  • YOU KNOW WHAT'S IN THAT CATEGORY?
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:47.280
  • AH, THIS ONE'S VERY POPULAR. PUERCO - THE PIG, THE HOG, THE
  • 00:08:47.290 --> 00:08:55.200
  • SWINE - "THOUGH IT DIVIDES THE HOOF, HAVING CLOVEN HOOVES,
  • 00:08:55.210 --> 00:09:00.080
  • YET DOES NOT CHEW THE CUD, IS UNCLEAN TO YOU."
  • 00:09:00.090 --> 00:09:03.280
  • HE GOES ON TO SAY, "THEIR FLESH YOU SHALL NOT EAT, AND THEIR
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:07.070
  • CARCASS YOU SHALL NOT TOUCH." THERE WAS AN ABOMINATION.
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:11.290
  • PIGS ARE FILTHY. I USED TO TAKE CARE OF MY
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:14.250
  • NEIGHBOR'S PIGS WHEN HE WOULD GO ON VACATION AND, YOU KNOW, I'D
  • 00:09:14.260 --> 00:09:17.220
  • ALWAYS TRY AND FIND SOME NEW WORD TO DESCRIBE IT, BUT ALL I
  • 00:09:17.230 --> 00:09:20.000
  • CAN COME UP WITH IS TO TELL YOU THAT PIGS ARE PIGS.
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:23.060
  • THEIR NAME IS THE DEFINITION. YOU CAN'T IMPROVE ON IT.
  • 00:09:23.070 --> 00:09:26.010
  • (LAUGHTER) YOU EVER BEEN BY - OR DRIVEN BY A PIG SLAUGHTER HOUSE?
  • 00:09:26.020 --> 00:09:31.150
  • EVEN THE BIBLE SAYS - LIKE THE SOW THAT WAS WASHED RETURNS TO
  • 00:09:31.160 --> 00:09:36.000
  • WALLOWING IN THE MIRE. AND THEIR FLESH IS
  • 00:09:36.010 --> 00:09:40.250
  • FULL OF DISEASE. THEY'RE SCAVENGERS.
  • 00:09:40.260 --> 00:09:45.270
  • GOD MADE SOME ANIMALS THAT ARE SCAVENGERS AND THEY'RE MADE TO,
  • 00:09:45.280 --> 00:09:49.050
  • KIND OF, CLEAN UP THE ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:09:49.060 --> 00:09:50.200
  • THEY EAT GARBAGE. WHY WOULD YOU - YOU WOULDN'T
  • 00:09:50.210 --> 00:09:54.070
  • EAT GARBAGE BUT YOU'LL EAT THE GARBAGE CAN (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:57.050
  • WHEN YOU EAT A PIG. HOW MANY OF YOU REMEMBER THIS?
  • 00:09:57.060 --> 00:10:00.260
  • 'THIS LITTLE PIGGY WENT TO THE MARKET' (LAUGHTER) 'THIS LITTLE
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:04.030
  • PIGGY STAYED HOME. THIS LITTLE PIGGY HAD ROAST
  • 00:10:04.040 --> 00:10:08.120
  • BEEF' - EVEN A PIG WON'T EAT PORK.
  • 00:10:08.130 --> 00:10:10.030
  • (RAUCOUS LAUGHTER) YOU KNOW I - I REMEMBER READING ONCE - I
  • 00:10:10.040 --> 00:10:17.170
  • THINK IT WAS ONE OUT OF FIVE AUTOPSIES DONE IN NORTH AMERICA
  • 00:10:17.180 --> 00:10:20.250
  • - THEY FOUND OUT THAT THE CADAVERS HAD SYMPTOMS OR
  • 00:10:20.260 --> 00:10:24.170
  • EVIDENCE OF TRICHINA POISONING. TRICHINOSIS IS A VERY TRICKY
  • 00:10:24.180 --> 00:10:33.040
  • DISEASE IN THAT WHEN THE MUSCLE TISSUE CONTAINING TRICHINA CYSTS
  • 00:10:33.050 --> 00:10:37.030
  • ARE EATEN BY A HUMAN, IT SAYS THE CYSTS ARE THEN DIGESTED IN
  • 00:10:37.040 --> 00:10:40.210
  • THE STOMACH THEN RELEASE THE LARVAE WHICH "...MIGRATE TO THE
  • 00:10:40.220 --> 00:10:44.030
  • INTESTINE, BEGIN A NEW LIFE CYCLE.
  • 00:10:44.040 --> 00:10:46.100
  • FEMALE TRICHINA WORMS LIVE ABOUT SIX WEEKS AND IN THAT TIME THEY
  • 00:10:46.110 --> 00:10:49.220
  • MAY RELEASE 15.000 LARVAE. THE MIGRATION AND ENCYSTMENT OF
  • 00:10:49.230 --> 00:10:53.270
  • LARVAE CAN CAUSE FEVER, PAIN, OR EVEN DEATH."
  • 00:10:53.280 --> 00:10:56.120
  • IT CAN CAUSE STIFFNESS IN JOINTS AND KNEES AND PAIN AND IT'S
  • 00:10:56.130 --> 00:10:59.190
  • OFTEN MISDIAGNOSED. A PERSON THINKS, 'I'VE GOT
  • 00:10:59.200 --> 00:11:02.220
  • BURSITIS' OR 'ARTHRITIS' AND THEY GOT PIGITIS IS WHAT IT IS
  • 00:11:02.230 --> 00:11:06.230
  • (LAUGHTER) IT'S FROM - IT'S VERY COMMON AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:11:06.240 --> 00:11:12.020
  • THERE'S A PICTURE OF A FELLOW. HE'S GOT HIS LUNCH ON HIS
  • 00:11:12.030 --> 00:11:13.270
  • BOX - BACK OF HIS BIKE. ONE NUTRITIONIST WROTE A FEW
  • 00:11:13.280 --> 00:11:20.050
  • YEARS AGO - AND THIS IS AN OLD ARTICLE, BUT I LIKE
  • 00:11:20.060 --> 00:11:21.250
  • THE WAY HE WORDED IT. SEPTEMBER 6, 1999.
  • 00:11:21.260 --> 00:11:25.080
  • A "NUTRITIONIST SAID BACON WASN'T TECHNICALLY MEAT ANYMORE.
  • 00:11:25.090 --> 00:11:28.210
  • IT DIDN'T BELONG TO ANY FOOD GROUP AT ALL.
  • 00:11:28.220 --> 00:11:31.030
  • IT WAS A SALTY NITRATE-RIDDEN, FAT-LADEN CARCINOGENIC THING."
  • 00:11:31.040 --> 00:11:36.110
  • WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO EAT A CARCINOGENIC THING?
  • 00:11:36.120 --> 00:11:42.110
  • BECAUSE IT TASTES GOOD. ARE YOU GOING TO BE CONTROLLED
  • 00:11:42.120 --> 00:11:45.090
  • BY THE SPIRIT OR BY THE FLESH? NOW SOME OF YOU ARE SAYING,
  • 00:11:45.100 --> 00:11:49.290
  • 'PASTOR DOUG, YOU'RE COMING DOWN PRETTY HARD ON THOSE OF US WHO
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:52.080
  • ARE, YOU KNOW, EATING MEAT AND STUFF LIKE THAT.
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:55.020
  • YOU KNOW, GOD DESIGNED HUMANS TO EAT MEAT AND THAT'S WHY WE'VE
  • 00:11:55.030 --> 00:11:58.230
  • GOT THESE CANINE TEETH, YOU KNOW?'
  • 00:11:58.240 --> 00:12:01.230
  • I'VE HEARD THAT ARGUMENT BEFORE. THAT'S NONSENSE.
  • 00:12:01.240 --> 00:12:05.210
  • THIS FELLA'S GOT CANINE TEETH TOO.
  • 00:12:05.220 --> 00:12:07.080
  • (RAUCOUS LAUGHTER) AND HE'S A VEGETARIAN.
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:13.240
  • AS IS THE HIPPO AND THE ELEPHANT - I DON'T KNOW HOW FAR I WANT TO
  • 00:12:13.250 --> 00:12:16.020
  • TAKE THIS ILLUSTRATION BUT - AND, ACTUALLY, THE DIGESTIVE
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:21.230
  • SYSTEM OF A CAT OR A CARNIVORE OR A DOG IS VERY SMOOTH.
  • 00:12:21.240 --> 00:12:27.100
  • VEGETARIAN ANIMALS HAVE A MORE COMPLEX DIGESTIVE SYSTEM.
  • 00:12:27.110 --> 00:12:31.140
  • WHERE THEY'VE GOT THE BROKEN UP INTESTINE AND WE'RE IN THAT
  • 00:12:31.150 --> 00:12:39.080
  • CATEGORY. WE THRIVE ON A VEGETARIAN DIET.
  • 00:12:39.090 --> 00:12:43.090
  • PEOPLE SAY TO ME ALL THE TIME, 'OH PASTOR DOUG, YOU KNOW, YOU
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:45.240
  • CAN'T BE HEALTHY IF YOU'RE VEGETARIAN.
  • 00:12:45.250 --> 00:12:48.180
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET ENOUGH B-12 AND PROTEIN.'
  • 00:12:48.190 --> 00:12:51.160
  • THAT IS A MYTH. THAT IS TOTALLY AN UNEDUCATED STATEMENT.
  • 00:12:51.170 --> 00:12:54.260
  • I'VE BEEN A VEGETARIAN FOR FORTY YEARS.
  • 00:12:54.270 --> 00:12:57.220
  • I LOVE WHEN I GO TO SUBWAY AND I ORDER A VEGGIE AND THEY SAY, 'DO
  • 00:12:57.230 --> 00:13:00.110
  • YOU WANT ANY CHEESE?' I SAID, 'NO.
  • 00:13:00.120 --> 00:13:01.220
  • I'M A VEGAN TOO.' I SAID, 'NO, JUST ALL VEGGIES.'
  • 00:13:01.230 --> 00:13:04.240
  • I SAY, 'I'M A VEGETARIAN.' 'REALLY?'
  • 00:13:04.250 --> 00:13:06.260
  • I SAID, 'YEP.' I SAID, 'DO I LOOK 90 YEARS OLD?'
  • 00:13:06.270 --> 00:13:10.020
  • (LAUGHTER) AND THEY GO, 'WOW, YOU'RE NOT' - (RAUCOUS LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:10.030 --> 00:13:18.040
  • I USUALLY CONFESS THAT I'M KIDDING AT THAT POINT.
  • 00:13:18.050 --> 00:13:20.020
  • YOU NOTICE I DIDN'T SAY I WAS 90, I SAID, 'DO I LOOK 90?'
  • 00:13:20.030 --> 00:13:23.110
  • (LAUGHTER) OF COURSE, ONCE I SAID, 'DO I LOOK 70?'
  • 00:13:23.120 --> 00:13:25.270
  • AND THEY SAID, 'YEAH, ABOUT 70.' (LAUGHTER) SO I HAD TO UP IT A
  • 00:13:25.280 --> 00:13:29.100
  • LITTLE BIT. BUT, NO, YOU KNOW, I REALLY HAVE
  • 00:13:29.110 --> 00:13:34.190
  • BEEN A VEGETARIAN 40 YEARS AND I FEEL GREAT.
  • 00:13:34.200 --> 00:13:37.130
  • YOU GET - YOU KNOW, IF YOU - A PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SANDWICH
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:40.120
  • HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED. IF YOU USE STRAWBERRY PRESERVES
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:43.020
  • YOU'VE GOT YOUR FRUITS, GRAINS, AND NUTS RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:13:43.030 --> 00:13:45.060
  • THE WHOLE THING. (LAUGHTER) YOU'VE GOT PROTEIN,
  • 00:13:45.070 --> 00:13:47.120
  • YOU'VE GOT B-12 - YOU'VE GOT EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
  • 00:13:47.130 --> 00:13:49.100
  • AND SOMEBODY SAYS, 'YOU WON'T GET ENOUGH,' DON'T BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:13:49.110 --> 00:13:52.230
  • FOR A MINUTE. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED HERE IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:13:52.240 --> 00:13:56.060
  • IT'S KIND OF A PRIMITIVE CHART BUT YOU SEE HERE, THESE ARE THE
  • 00:13:56.070 --> 00:13:59.150
  • PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN THE DAYS BEFORE THE FLOOD.
  • 00:13:59.160 --> 00:14:02.100
  • YOU'VE GOT SETH, METHUSELAH, NOAH - THEY'RE LIVES WERE
  • 00:14:02.110 --> 00:14:05.220
  • MEASURED IN HUNDREDS OF YEARS.
  • 00:14:05.230 --> 00:14:07.250
  • AFTER THE FLOOD, ALL OF THE VEGETATION WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:14:07.260 --> 00:14:10.250
  • YOU REMEMBER, GOD TOOK THE CLEAN ANIMALS ON THE ARK BY SEVENS AND
  • 00:14:10.260 --> 00:14:15.230
  • THEY, OSTENSIBLY, WOULD SACRIFICE THEM.
  • 00:14:15.240 --> 00:14:19.070
  • THEY WERE ALLOWED TO EAT OF THE SACRIFICE, BUT MEAT EATING
  • 00:14:19.080 --> 00:14:21.200
  • BECAME A LOT MORE PREDOMINANT AFTER THE FLOOD.
  • 00:14:21.210 --> 00:14:25.040
  • AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LIFE SPAN.
  • 00:14:25.050 --> 00:14:28.140
  • ONE OF THE PLACES IN THE WORLD WHERE PEOPLE LIVE THE LONGEST IS
  • 00:14:28.150 --> 00:14:31.150

  • AND MOST IMPORTANT? TO SHARE IT WITH OTHERS.
  • 00:15:12.280 --> 00:15:15.150
  • -NOW, IF YOU'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT - WE TALKED ABOUT THE
  • 00:15:17.190 --> 00:15:19.240
  • MAMMALS THAT HAD TO HAVE A CLOVEN HOOF AND CHEW THE CUD -
  • 00:15:19.250 --> 00:15:22.280
  • WHAT ABOUT THE SEA CREATURES? WHAT TYPES OF FISH OR SEAFOOD
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:26.270
  • ARE CLEAN, BIBLICALLY? YOU READ IN LEVITICUS 11, VERSE
  • 00:15:26.280 --> 00:15:29.270
  • 9, "THESE YOU CAN EAT OF ALL THAT ARE IN THE WATERS: WHATEVER
  • 00:15:29.280 --> 00:15:33.140
  • HAS FINS AND SCALES...THEM YOU SHALL EAT."
  • 00:15:33.150 --> 00:15:37.180
  • YOU KNOW, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE NAVY DID SOME RESEARCH BACK
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:43.020
  • AFTER WORLD WAR II BECAUSE A NUMBER OF PILOTS AND SAILORS
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:47.070
  • WERE FLOATING AROUND IN THE OCEAN - THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:15:47.080 --> 00:15:50.220
  • THEY COULD AND COULDN'T EAT OF THE FISH THAT KIND OF GATHERED
  • 00:15:50.230 --> 00:15:53.050
  • AROUND THEIR LIFE RAFTS AND THEY SAID, 'WE NEED TO GIVE THEM SOME
  • 00:15:53.060 --> 00:15:55.140
  • CRITERIA THAT THEY CAN REMEMBER - SOMETHING SIMPLE.' AND THEY
  • 00:15:55.150 --> 00:15:58.290
  • DID ALL THIS RESEARCH AND ONE OF THEM SAID, 'YOU KNOW, IT SAYS IN
  • 00:15:59.000 --> 00:16:03.040
  • THE BIBLE THAT IF IT HAS FINS AND SCALES IT'S SAFE.' AND THEY
  • 00:16:03.050 --> 00:16:06.290
  • SAID, 'WELL, LET'S SEE WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE.' AND DID ALL THE
  • 00:16:07.000 --> 00:16:08.180
  • RESEARCH. THEY SAID, 'THAT'S PROBABLY THE
  • 00:16:08.190 --> 00:16:10.040
  • BEST RULE OF THUMB WE CAN TELL THE SAILORS.' THEY FOUND A LOT
  • 00:16:10.050 --> 00:16:14.090
  • OF TOXINS IN THE SCAVENGERS. CATFISH DO NOT HAVE SCALES.
  • 00:16:14.100 --> 00:16:21.060
  • MY BROTHER AND I USED TO CATCH CATFISH OFF MY DAD'S BACK PORCH.
  • 00:16:21.070 --> 00:16:24.160
  • HE WAS RIGHT ON BISCAYNE BAY IN MIAMI BEACH.
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:26.180
  • AND, TAKING THE HOOK OUT OF THE CATFISH, MY BROTHER'S FINGER GOT
  • 00:16:26.190 --> 00:16:31.210
  • POKED BY THE DORSAL FIN AND IT WAS SO TOXIC HE COULD NEVER BEND
  • 00:16:31.220 --> 00:16:35.070
  • HIS FINGER AGAIN. AND PEOPLE EAT THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:16:35.080 --> 00:16:39.060
  • WE ATE 'EM TOO BACK THEN. SHARKS, THEY'VE GOT
  • 00:16:39.070 --> 00:16:42.050
  • CARTILAGE ON THE OUTSIDE. THEY'RE SCAVENGERS.
  • 00:16:42.060 --> 00:16:46.000
  • AND SOME OF YOU ARE WONDERING, WHAT ABOUT TUNA.
  • 00:16:46.010 --> 00:16:49.040
  • TUNA HAS SCALES - VERY SMALL, BUT THEY'VE GOT SCALES.
  • 00:16:49.050 --> 00:16:52.080
  • AND SO, THEY NEEDED THESE THINGS.
  • 00:16:52.090 --> 00:16:53.170
  • SO WHAT WOULD BE UNCLEAN? "BUT IN THE SEAS" - LEVITICUS
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:57.080
  • 11:10 STILL - "IN ALL THE SEAS OF THE RIVERS THOSE THAT DO NOT
  • 00:16:57.090 --> 00:17:01.110
  • HAVE FINS AND SCALES, ALL THAT MOVE IN THE WATER OR ANY LIVING
  • 00:17:01.120 --> 00:17:04.200
  • THING WHICH IS IN THE WATER, THEY ARE AN ABOMINATION TO YOU."
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:08.160
  • NOW THERE'S NO TIME IN THE BIBLE WHEN GOD CALLS SOMETHING AN
  • 00:17:08.170 --> 00:17:11.040
  • ABOMINATION IN ONE PART THAT IT IS THEN BLESSED IN ANOTHER PART.
  • 00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:14.230
  • ANYTHING THAT'S DECLARED BY GOD AN ABOMINATION STAYS AN
  • 00:17:14.240 --> 00:17:17.100
  • ABOMINATION. AND, BY THE WAY, THESE ARE NOT
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:22.010
  • LAWS JUST FOR ONE GROUP OF PEOPLE, THESE ARE LAWS THAT
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:24.250
  • GOD GAVE TO HUMANITY IN THE BEGINNING. WHAT ABOUT THE BIRDS?
  • 00:17:24.260 --> 00:17:28.250
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO EAT MEAT, WHAT BIRDS ARE CLEAN?
  • 00:17:28.260 --> 00:17:31.240
  • WELL, THE WAY THEY RAISE SOME BIRDS, I DON'T WANT TO EAT
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:35.210
  • ANYTHING BUT, BIBLICALLY, IT NEEDED TO BE A FORAGING BIRD.
  • 00:17:35.220 --> 00:17:40.050
  • THE ONES THAT ARE UNCLEAN - IT SAYS, "EVERY RAVEN AFTER ITS
  • 00:17:40.060 --> 00:17:42.160
  • KIND," - AND THE "OWL, AND THE NIGHT HAWK, AND
  • 00:17:42.170 --> 00:17:46.030
  • THE CUCKAW, AND THE HAWK AFTER ITS KIND."
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:48.250
  • - THE SCAVENGERS - THE RAPTORS - THEY WERE UNCLEAN - THE
  • 00:17:48.260 --> 00:17:54.040
  • OMNIVORES. THE FORAGING BIRDS LIKE THE
  • 00:17:54.050 --> 00:17:58.000
  • PHEASANT AND THE QUAIL AND THE CHICKEN AND THE TURKEY, YOU'LL
  • 00:17:58.010 --> 00:18:02.060
  • BE HAPPY TO KNOW, ARE IN THE CLEAN CATEGORY. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:02.070 --> 00:18:06.090
  • PIGEON IS CLEAN, WHICH MEANS THEY'LL NEVER STARVE IN NEW YORK
  • 00:18:06.100 --> 00:18:11.000
  • CITY. (LAUGHTER) I WOULDN'T EAT ANY OF THOSE, THOUGH.
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:16.170
  • BUT THEY WERE TYPICALLY IN THAT CATEGORY.
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:19.130
  • SO, ARE THE LAWS ABOUT THE CLEAN AND UNCLEAN ANIMALS PART OF
  • 00:18:19.140 --> 00:18:22.140
  • MOSES' CEREMONIAL LAW THAT ENDED AT THE CROSS?
  • 00:18:22.150 --> 00:18:25.090
  • THIS IS THE ARGUMENT - HAVE YOU HEARD THIS BEFORE?
  • 00:18:25.100 --> 00:18:27.160
  • NO, YOU READ IN GENESIS 7, WHEN GOD WAS TELLING NOAH TO BRING
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:32.250
  • THE ANIMALS ON THE ARK, EVERYONE SAYS, 'OH YEAH, THEY WENT ON THE
  • 00:18:32.260 --> 00:18:35.040
  • ARK TWO BY TWO.' NOT ALL OF THEM.
  • 00:18:35.050 --> 00:18:37.260
  • THE UNCLEAN ANIMALS WENT BY TWO. THE CLEAN ANIMALS WENT BY SEVEN.
  • 00:18:37.270 --> 00:18:42.230
  • "COME INTO THE ARK YOU AND ALL YOUR HOUSEHOLD..." AND IT SAYS
  • 00:18:42.240 --> 00:18:45.230
  • OF THE BEASTS THAT ARE NOT CLEAN THEY'LL BRING BY TWO.
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:49.160
  • OF THE CLEAN BEASTS, THEY COME BY SEVENS.
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:53.080
  • LIKE YOU MIGHT HAVE THE STAG AND SEVEN DOES.
  • 00:18:53.090 --> 00:18:56.040
  • YOU HAVE THE BULL AND - OR SIX COWS AND THE BULL - AND SO THEY
  • 00:18:56.050 --> 00:18:59.090
  • MAY HAVE DIVIDED IT UP LIKE THAT.
  • 00:18:59.100 --> 00:19:01.010
  • AND SO, HOW MANY HERE ARE RELATED TO NOAH?
  • 00:19:01.020 --> 00:19:06.100
  • THAT'D BE ALL OF YOU. (LAUGHTER) HOW MANY OF YOU NEVER
  • 00:19:06.110 --> 00:19:08.230
  • RAISE YOUR HAND WHEN THE PASTOR ASKS A QUESTION?
  • 00:19:08.240 --> 00:19:10.210
  • (RAUCOUS LAUGHTER) SOME OF YOU WERE HONEST ENOUGH TO FINALLY
  • 00:19:10.220 --> 00:19:14.000
  • RAISE YOUR HAND FOR THAT QUESTION.
  • 00:19:14.010 --> 00:19:17.040
  • BUT WE'RE ALL RELATED TO NOAH. SO GOD MAKES A DISTINCTION OF
  • 00:19:17.050 --> 00:19:20.210
  • CLEAN AND UNCLEAN RIGHT BACK THERE IN THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:19:20.220 --> 00:19:24.050
  • THESE THINGS - WE KNOW TODAY THAT THERE'S HEALTH PRINCIPLES.
  • 00:19:24.060 --> 00:19:28.060
  • BY THE WAY, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC DID AN ARTICLE A FEW YEARS AGO
  • 00:19:28.070 --> 00:19:33.140
  • CALLED THE BLUE ZONES . DID ANY OF YOU HERE
  • 00:19:33.150 --> 00:19:35.090
  • EVER SEE THIS MAGAZINE? IT TALKED ABOUT THE AREAS OF
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:37.210
  • THE WORLD WHERE PEOPLE LIVE THE LONGEST.
  • 00:19:37.220 --> 00:19:40.060
  • THEY CAME UP WITH THREE GROUPS: THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN SARDINIA
  • 00:19:40.070 --> 00:19:44.250
  • - THE MEDITERRANEAN, THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN OKINAWA, JAPAN -
  • 00:19:44.260 --> 00:19:49.100
  • SOME OF THE OLDEST IN THE WORLD, AND THE THIRD CATEGORY WAS
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:52.000
  • SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS THAT LIVE IN LOMA LINDA.
  • 00:19:52.010 --> 00:19:54.200
  • OR SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS, BUT THAT'S JUST AN ENCLAVE DOWN
  • 00:19:54.210 --> 00:19:58.150
  • THERE AND SO THEY SAW THERE WAS A CONCENTRATION.
  • 00:19:58.160 --> 00:20:00.260
  • AND SO, THEY SPECIFICALLY SAID SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS.
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:04.030
  • WHAT DO THEY ATTRIBUTE THAT TO? THEIR HEALTHY LIFESTYLE.
  • 00:20:04.040 --> 00:20:09.110
  • -AMEN. -FOLLOWING THE BIBLICAL
  • 00:20:09.120 --> 00:20:11.000
  • CRITERIA, AMONG OTHER THINGS, HAVING A DAY OF REST HELPS ALSO.
  • 00:20:11.010 --> 00:20:15.170
  • AND THEY LIVE A LOT LONGER. I WAS VISITING A SISTER TODAY,
  • 00:20:15.180 --> 00:20:21.140
  • 93 YEARS OLD UP AND AROUND DOING FINE.
  • 00:20:21.150 --> 00:20:25.040
  • THIS IS A PICTURE OF ONE OF MY CHURCH MEMBERS, 111 AND STILL
  • 00:20:25.050 --> 00:20:29.040
  • GOING - VIOLA COOK. AND IT JUST WAS AMAZING TO ME,
  • 00:20:29.050 --> 00:20:36.130
  • HER BROTHER-IN-LAW TOLD ME - ART REED - GAVE ME SOME GOOD ADVICE
  • 00:20:36.140 --> 00:20:41.020
  • - IF YOU FORGET EVERYTHING I SAY TONIGHT, REMEMBER THIS: I SAID,
  • 00:20:41.030 --> 00:20:43.130
  • 'ART, HOW COME YOU'RE SO OLD AND SO HEALTHY?'
  • 00:20:43.140 --> 00:20:45.260
  • HE SAID, 'THREE THINGS: STOP EATING WHILE YOU'RE STILL A
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:49.060
  • LITTLE HUNGRY, WAKE UP WHEN YOU'RE STILL A LITTLE SLEEPY,
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:54.000
  • AND STOP TALKING WHEN YOU STILL HAVE SOMETHING LEFT TO SAY.'
  • 00:20:54.010 --> 00:20:56.180
  • (LAUGHTER) SECRET TO LIFE.
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:21:01.140
  • DOES GOD SAY THAT EATING UNCLEAN FOOD IS A SERIOUS OFFENSE?
  • 00:21:01.150 --> 00:21:07.080
  • SOME PEOPLE THINK, 'OH, THE BIBLE LAWS ABOUT HEALTH ARE
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:09.210
  • RECOMMENDATIONS.' THE BIBLE DOESN'T CALL THEM
  • 00:21:09.220 --> 00:21:11.080
  • RECOMMENDATIONS, IT CALLS THEM LAWS.
  • 00:21:11.090 --> 00:21:13.100
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS IN ISAIAH 66, VERSES 15 AND 17:
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:17.050
  • "FOR BEHOLD, THE LORD WILL COME WITH FIRE AND WITH HIS CHARIOTS,
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:20.200
  • LIKE A WHIRLWIND, TO RENDER HIS ANGER WITH FURY.
  • 00:21:20.210 --> 00:21:24.180
  • THOSE WHO SANCTIFY THEMSELVES AND PURIFY THEMSELVES..."
  • 00:21:24.190 --> 00:21:28.060
  • - THEY'RE DECLARING THEMSELVES SANCTIFIED AND PURE - "'EATING
  • 00:21:28.070 --> 00:21:30.120
  • SWINE'S FLESH AND THE ABOMINATION AND THE MOUSE, SHALL
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:36.000
  • BE CONSUMED TOGETHER,' SAYS THE LORD."
  • 00:21:36.010 --> 00:21:39.010
  • 'OH, PASTOR DOUG, ARE YOU TELLING ME THAT MY BLT SANDWICH
  • 00:21:39.020 --> 00:21:42.040
  • IS NO MORE? IT TASTES SO GOOD.' YOU KNOW,
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:47.180
  • WHEN YOU REALLY THINK ABOUT IT, THERE ARE SO MANY
  • 00:21:47.190 --> 00:21:49.090
  • GOOD THINGS TO EAT. I'M SURPRISED - PEOPLE SAY TO
  • 00:21:49.100 --> 00:21:52.070
  • ME, 'PASTOR DOUG, YOU'RE A VEGETARIAN.
  • 00:21:52.080 --> 00:21:54.040
  • WHAT DO YOU EAT?' (LAUGHTER) WELL, I EAT GREAT.
  • 00:21:54.050 --> 00:22:00.130
  • LOTS OF THINGS. YOU GROW UP LEARNING A CERTAIN
  • 00:22:00.140 --> 00:22:03.160
  • WAY AND YOU THINK THAT'S THE ONLY WAY.
  • 00:22:03.170 --> 00:22:05.120
  • YOU'VE GOT TO JUST LEARN TO DO GOOD - LEARN A NEW WAY - AND
  • 00:22:05.130 --> 00:22:07.280
  • YOU'LL BE FINE. SOME PEOPLE THINK, 'WELL, IF GOD
  • 00:22:07.290 --> 00:22:10.090
  • DOESN'T WANT US TO EAT IT, WHY DID HE MAKE IT?'
  • 00:22:10.100 --> 00:22:13.130
  • AND IT'S ALMOST LIKE A BUMPER STICKER THAT YOU WOULD FIND
  • 00:22:13.140 --> 00:22:15.250
  • SOMEWHERE ON BUBBA'S TRUCK: 'GOD MADE IT SO WE CAN KILL IT AND
  • 00:22:15.260 --> 00:22:20.020
  • EAT IT.' HE DIDN'T MAKE ANY OF THE
  • 00:22:20.030 --> 00:22:22.160
  • ANIMALS FOR US TO KILL AND EAT.
  • 00:22:22.170 --> 00:22:24.290
  • PEOPLE QUOTE THIS VERSE IN 1 TIMOTHY 4:4, "FOR EVERY CREATURE
  • 00:22:25.000 --> 00:22:28.190
  • OF GOD IS GOOD," - HAVE YOU HEARD THIS BEFORE?
  • 00:22:28.200 --> 00:22:31.120
  • - "AND NOTHING TO BE REFUSED IF IT IS RECEIVED WITH THANKSGIVING
  • 00:22:31.130 --> 00:22:35.020
  • AND PRAYER." NOW THEY DON'T READ THE CONTEXT
  • 00:22:35.030 --> 00:22:38.150
  • - THEY DON'T READ WHAT IT SAYS BEFORE OR AFTER.
  • 00:22:38.160 --> 00:22:40.010
  • IT SAYS, FIRST OF ALL, THAT IT'LL BE SANCTIFIED BY THE WORD
  • 00:22:40.020 --> 00:22:41.220
  • OF GOD. THAT MEANS THE CREATURES THAT
  • 00:22:41.230 --> 00:22:44.090
  • ARE APPROVED IN THE WORD OF GOD CAN BE SANCTIFIED BY PRAYER.
  • 00:22:44.100 --> 00:22:48.200
  • BUT THIS NOTION THAT CHRISTIANS BELIEVE - AND THIS IS WHERE -
  • 00:22:48.210 --> 00:22:52.040
  • BOY, I HOPE THIS SINKS IN WITH THINKING CHRISTIANS OUT THERE -
  • 00:22:52.050 --> 00:22:55.230
  • THE IDEA THAT WE'RE FREE NOW FROM THE LAWS ABOUT HEALTH
  • 00:22:55.240 --> 00:22:59.150
  • BECAUSE WE JUST PRAY AND GOD BLESSES WHATEVER WE EAT.
  • 00:22:59.160 --> 00:23:03.080
  • YOU WOULD NOT ACCEPT THAT FROM YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:23:03.090 --> 00:23:06.020
  • HOW MANY ARE PARENTS OUT THERE? ARE THEY RAISING THEIR HANDS?
  • 00:23:06.030 --> 00:23:11.040
  • IF YOU WERE GETTING READY FOR WORK ONE DAY AND YOUR KIDS WERE
  • 00:23:11.050 --> 00:23:14.040
  • FIXING THEIR OWN BREAKFAST, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE A LITTLE OLDER,
  • 00:23:14.050 --> 00:23:16.050
  • AND YOU SEE THAT THEY'RE POURING SUGAR FROSTED FLAKES IN THEIR
  • 00:23:16.060 --> 00:23:22.100
  • BOWL AND THEY'RE PUTTING SUGAR ON TOP OF IT, THEN THEY GO IN
  • 00:23:22.110 --> 00:23:25.050
  • THE FREEZER AND GET A SCOOP OF CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM, THEN THEY
  • 00:23:25.060 --> 00:23:27.220
  • GET SOME CARAMEL SYRUP, AND YOU SAY, 'WHAT IN THE WORLD DO YOU
  • 00:23:27.230 --> 00:23:30.250
  • THINK YOU'RE DOING?' 'DON'T WORRY, MOM, DAD, I'M
  • 00:23:30.260 --> 00:23:34.090
  • GOING TO ASK JESUS TO BLESS IT.'
  • 00:23:34.100 --> 00:23:36.000
  • (LAUGHTER) WOULD YOU SAY, 'WELL, THAT'S
  • 00:23:36.010 --> 00:23:39.250
  • OKAY, AS LONG AS YOU PRAY OVER IT,
  • 00:23:39.260 --> 00:23:41.090
  • THAT'LL BE OKAY.' HOW MANY WOULD ACCEPT THAT?
  • 00:23:41.100 --> 00:23:44.270
  • THEN WHY DO WE THINK THAT WE CAN TEMPT THE LORD BY GOING AGAINST
  • 00:23:44.280 --> 00:23:49.090
  • THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF HEALTH IN THE BIBLE AND SAY, 'BUT I
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:51.240
  • PRAYED OVER IT.' WHEN THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT THAT, IT'S TALKING
  • 00:23:51.250 --> 00:23:56.060
  • ABOUT THERE WAS A BIG CONTEST BETWEEN THE JEWISH CHRISTIANS
  • 00:23:56.070 --> 00:24:00.160
  • AND THE GENTILE CHRISTIANS AND THE JEWISH CHRISTIANS SAID,
  • 00:24:00.170 --> 00:24:02.230
  • 'OH, THAT MEAT HAD BEEN OFFERED TO AN IDOL.
  • 00:24:02.240 --> 00:24:04.270
  • YOU CAN'T EAT IT.' AND PAUL SAID, 'LOOK, THE IDOL'S
  • 00:24:04.280 --> 00:24:06.230
  • NOTHING.' YOU PRAY OVER IT - HE WAS TALKING ABOUT CLEAN ANIMALS
  • 00:24:06.240 --> 00:24:09.240
  • THAT MAYBE THEY HAD BOUGHT IN A GENTILE MARKETPLACE - GOAT OR
  • 00:24:09.250 --> 00:24:13.150
  • TURKEY OR SHEEP OR WHATEVER IT WAS - AND THE JEWS HAD A VERY
  • 00:24:13.160 --> 00:24:18.030
  • SENSITIVE CONSCIENCE, THEY SAID, 'BUT IT WAS A GENTILE
  • 00:24:18.040 --> 00:24:20.210
  • MARKETPLACE. THEY BUTCHER THINGS AND THEY
  • 00:24:20.220 --> 00:24:22.130
  • OFFER THEM TO GODS BEFORE THEY BUTCHER THEM.' PAUL SAID, 'LOOK,
  • 00:24:22.140 --> 00:24:26.110
  • IT'S SANCTIFIED BY THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:24:26.120 --> 00:24:27.260
  • GOD'S WORD SAID YOU CAN EAT THAT GOAT - THAT SHEEP - AND YOU'VE
  • 00:24:27.270 --> 00:24:30.210
  • PRAYED OVER IT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.'
  • 00:24:30.220 --> 00:24:32.100
  • HOW MANY OF YOU EAT CHINESE FOOD IN A CHINESE RESTAURANT?
  • 00:24:32.110 --> 00:24:34.160
  • I DO. I DID THIS WEEK.
  • 00:24:34.170 --> 00:24:36.090
  • AND WHEN I WENT IN, THERE WAS A BUDDHA IN THE RESTAURANT.
  • 00:24:36.100 --> 00:24:42.050
  • NOW, SOME CHRISTIANS MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT.
  • 00:24:42.060 --> 00:24:44.050
  • THEY MIGHT SAY, 'I CAN'T EAT IN THERE, THERE WAS A BUDDHA.
  • 00:24:44.060 --> 00:24:46.040
  • I'LL BE SUPPORTING BUDDHA IF I EAT IN THAT RESTAURANT.'
  • 00:24:46.050 --> 00:24:48.230
  • (LAUGHTER) PAUL WAS SAYING, 'LOOK, YOU PRAY OVER YOUR FOOD.
  • 00:24:48.240 --> 00:24:52.040
  • DON'T WORRY ABOUT WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT - THE COOK MIGHT BE
  • 00:24:52.050 --> 00:24:54.160
  • A BUDDHIST - IT'S NOT GOING TO HURT YOU.' THIS WAS THE ISSUE.
  • 00:24:54.170 --> 00:24:57.240
  • IT WASN'T SAYING YOU COULD EAT ANYTHING.
  • 00:24:57.250 --> 00:25:00.270
  • THAT'S IRRESPONSIBLE. WE ALL KNOW BETTER THAN THAT.
  • 00:25:00.280 --> 00:25:04.170
  • WHAT YOU EAT IS GOING TO AFFECT YOUR HEALTH.
  • 00:25:04.180 --> 00:25:06.260
  • HOW MUCH YOU EAT IS GOING TO AFFECT YOUR HEALTH.
  • 00:25:06.270 --> 00:25:10.150
  • SOME WILL SAY, 'WHAT ABOUT THE VISION THAT PETER HAD IN ACTS
  • 00:25:10.160 --> 00:25:13.060
  • CHAPTER 10?' SOME OF YOU REMEMBER, IT TELLS
  • 00:25:13.070 --> 00:25:16.290
  • US THAT CORNELIUS, A GENTILE, AND HIS FAMILY FULL OF GENTILES,
  • 00:25:17.000 --> 00:25:21.130
  • AN ANGEL SAYS, 'YOU MUST HEAR FROM PETER.'
  • 00:25:21.140 --> 00:25:25.040
  • THEY SEND MESSENGERS TO PETER. NORMALLY JEWS DID NOT PREACH
  • 00:25:25.050 --> 00:25:27.260
  • TO THE GENTILES IN THOSE EARLY DAYS.
  • 00:25:27.270 --> 00:25:30.060
  • PETER'S UP ON THE ROOF, HE'S PRAYING, HE'S HUNGRY.
  • 00:25:30.070 --> 00:25:33.010
  • GOD GIVES HIM A VISION OF A SHEET THAT COMES DOWN FROM
  • 00:25:33.020 --> 00:25:35.020
  • HEAVEN, FULL OF ALL THESE UNCLEAN ANIMALS AND GOD SAYS,
  • 00:25:35.030 --> 00:25:37.240
  • 'ARISE AND EAT.' NOTICE WHAT PETER SAYS: 'NOT SO, LORD.
  • 00:25:37.250 --> 00:25:42.100
  • I HAVE NEVER EATEN ANYTHING COMMON OR UNCLEAN.' AND THE
  • 00:25:42.110 --> 00:25:46.220
  • BIBLE SAYS, 'DO NOT CALL UNCLEAN WHAT I HAVE CLEANSED.' AND HE'S
  • 00:25:46.230 --> 00:25:51.030
  • WONDERING - THIS HAPPENS THREE TIMES - HE NEVER TAKES ANYTHING
  • 00:25:51.040 --> 00:25:53.070
  • OUT OF THE SHEET - IT'S A VISION - YOU CAN'T EAT A VISION.
  • 00:25:53.080 --> 00:25:55.200
  • HE NEVER TAKES ANYTHING OUT OF THE SHEET. HE NEVER EATS IT.
  • 00:25:55.210 --> 00:25:59.030
  • AND HE'S WONDERING WHAT THE VISION MEANS.
  • 00:25:59.040 --> 00:26:01.270
  • AND SOME GENTILES KNOCK ON THE DOOR DOWNSTAIRS AND PETER
  • 00:26:01.280 --> 00:26:04.260
  • EXPLAINS WHAT THIS VISION IS ABOUT.
  • 00:26:04.270 --> 00:26:06.260
  • HE SAID, 'GOD HAS TOLD ME NOT TO CALL ANY MAN' - THAT'S A FUNNY
  • 00:26:06.270 --> 00:26:11.250
  • WAY TO SPELL 'PIG' - IT DOESN'T SAY GOD SHOWED ME NOT TO CALL
  • 00:26:11.260 --> 00:26:15.240
  • ANY SWINE UNCLEAN.' HE SAID NOT TO CALL ANY MAN UNCLEAN BECAUSE
  • 00:26:15.250 --> 00:26:18.290
  • THE JEWS WERE CALLING THE GENTILES UNCLEAN.
  • 00:26:19.000 --> 00:26:21.220
  • THIS VISION HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH FOOD.
  • 00:26:21.230 --> 00:26:24.150
  • IT HAD TO DO WITH TAKING THE GOSPEL TO THE GENTILES.
  • 00:26:24.160 --> 00:26:27.070
  • SO PASTORS THAT SAY THAT, THEY'RE BEING DISHONEST.
  • 00:26:27.080 --> 00:26:30.180
  • THEY KNOW THAT'S NOT WHAT WAS REALLY HAPPENING THERE.
  • 00:26:30.190 --> 00:26:33.080
  • DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHAT WE EAT?
  • 00:26:33.090 --> 00:26:35.240
  • DO YOU KNOW WHY WE'RE ALL HAVING PROBLEMS WITH SIN AND
  • 00:26:35.250 --> 00:26:37.220
  • TEMPTATION? BECAUSE OUR FIRST PARENTS ATE
  • 00:26:37.230 --> 00:26:41.020
  • SOMETHING THEY WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO EAT.
