Spiritual transformation allows us to grow and mature. We now understand scripture and allow the Holy Spirit to guide our lives.
However, for many of us there is one area of our lives where the growth is also in the size of our waistlines because our overconsumption of the wrong types of food. We have actually become addicted to food!
Many of us are addicted to food and addiction to anything is a type of bondage and idolatry. Food addictions can lead to compulsive and excessive overeating. The enemy knows this and uses this against us. It’s no coincidence that this type of eating is encouraged by the “super-sized” fast food chains and the “all you can eat” buffets. This type of “eating” has become a socially acceptable thing to do and we often partake of it. The bible warns us not to be partakers. There are 60 bible verses about partaking in sin. This is one of my favorites. Psalms 50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Over 76 percent of the body of Christ suffers from food addiction and the food manufacturing industry makes billions of dollars every year by selling us their food. Their foods are like drugs and the enemy knows that if we are in an addiction, we cannot truly fulfill the purpose God has for our lives.
Obesity is a result of food addiction and there are about 50 medical conditions related to obesity. Here are a few:
High blood pressure; high cholesterol; diabetes, heart disease, gallbladder disease and cancer.
We have surely been bamboozled, hoodwinked and fooled by the enemy. He is literally pulling the wool over our eyes. The food industry adds deceptive ingredients like artificial flavors, artificial colors, oils and more to make food taste better, however, all these things are harmful when consumed in large quantities. In this book we call these deceptive ingredients “Posers” and we teach you how to keep track of them at each meal. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) states that consuming small quantities of these “Posers” won’t hurt us. I assure you that we are consuming more than just a little bit daily.
We have provided a chart at the end of this book that helps you keep track of how many “Posers” you encounter daily. It has been scientifically proven that keeping a journal of your habits helps create positive changes.
Once you know the truth about what you are really consuming you will be set free.
