You're probably wondering...What Does Food Have to Do with Finding Identity in Christ?
The mere fact that what the children eat affects their mental ability to function is cause for concern. When the food they eat causes their body to malfunction that's because the brain itself is malfunctioning.
And if the brain malfunctions they cannot discern spiritual things.
White (1864) states, "The health of the mind is dependent upon the health of the body. [Tweet "As Christian parents . . . in order to strengthen in them . . . the love of spiritual things, we"] must regulate the manner of our living, dispense with animal food, and use grains, vegetables, and fruits, as articles of food" (p. 20).
