Milk the most nutritious drink on the planet!

milk does a body good.

super food

Taken from  Fox news bulletin   2

No No No!!! There is no super food!

Almost every year someone claims to have found the super food; Texas super food, spinach, seaweed, green tea, acai berry, aloe vera, and now cockroach milk. There is always someone trying to sell us one food that will fix all our problems. Don’t buy it, there is no super pill, magic bullet or super food. Every claim has always been found to be false. Good old cow’s milk or goat’s milk is the closest thing to super food you will ever find.

This is Wellness Gospel 101; our bodies are primarily made up of water, protein and essential minerals. There is no super food that provides all of these things. The most prevalent mineral in our bodies is calcium. Our skeletal bone structure and teeth are almost 100% calcium. Calcium is also found in muscles, nerves, ligaments and blood. Calcium is essential for almost every function of the body. For optimum health we need to eat and drink foods that contain high quality calcium, it is just that simple. If you don’t give your body the raw materials, it can’t build or sustain itself. Milk is one of those foods that contains high quality calcium.

With so many experts telling us what is good food and what isn’t, and with all those experts disagreeing with one another, where can we turn to get the truth? The answer is not found in some super food, it is found in God’s word, the super book. It is not a history book, but it is historically accurate. It is not a geography book, but everything in it is geographically accurate. And it is not a nutrition book, but if you follow its advice you will find that advice to be your most accurate information concerning food; what is good food and what is not. The closer you live your life to God’s word, the healthier you will become. And one of the Bible’s favorite foods is milk. Cow’s milk and goat’s milk are the closest things to super food you will ever find. And they are readily available, unlike cockroach milk. By the way, cockroaches carry disease, so you may not want to drink the milk, just sayin.

According to US National Library of Medicine,1 “Calcium is one of the most important minerals for the human body. It helps form and maintain healthy teeth and bones. A proper level of calcium in the body over a lifetime can help prevent osteoporosis.  Calcium helps your body with:

  • Building strong bones and teeth
  • Clotting blood
  • Sending and receiving nerve signals
  • Squeezing and relaxing muscles
  • Releasing hormones and other chemicals
  • Keeping a normal heartbeat”

Milk contains high quality calcium and is almost the perfect food. All mammals survive for a portion of their lives on milk alone. Human babies can live on milk alone for at least 13 months. Dr. Wallach tells of a Middle Eastern man who drank one gallon of goats milk each day and lived to be well over 100. If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only pick one thing to eat or drink, milk would keep you alive the longest. Milk is an excellent source of calcium.

Arthritis and osteoporosis are at epidemic proportions. Both are caused by a lack of calcium. And the epidemic in the USA is getting worse every year.4 Osteoporosis used to be a disease that only old women who had given birth to a lot of children contracted. Osteoporosis is a disease of the bones where they become porous or less dense than normal. It causes people to be more susceptible to broken bones and arthritis. As Americans reduced their milk intake, it began to afflict middle-aged women, then teenage girls and now men and boys are getting it. Why? Because we are drinking more and more soda pop and juice and we are drinking less and less milk. This is a double whammy to your health. Not only does soda pop lack calcium, but it also contains an unnaturally high amount of phosphorus. Phosphorus combines with calcium in a natural way in the body but when the natural balance is upset the extra phosphorus in your body will go looking for calcium to bind with, and actually cause the calcium stored in your bones to be leached out. This results in porous and brittle bones, bad teeth, bone spurs, which are calcium bumps (deposits).  neck and back problems. Gall stones, kidney stones, hypertension and cramps are also caused by a lack of calcium.

In Genesis 49:12 Jacob prophesied that one of his sons would have teeth white from milk. Milk actually contains a large amount of calcium, which is what teeth and bones are made of.  Calcium is the necessary nutrient for healthy white teeth.  4000, years ago, Jacob, inspired by God, said that drinking whole milk would bless his grown children with strong white teeth.

Other symptoms of a calcium deficiency are joint problems, insomnia, poorly functioning immune system and irritability, to name a few. According to Dr. Wallach, 85% of hypertension is due to a calcium deficiency. 5

How did these kids grow up without broken bones?


IMG_20160722_142430418_HDR (1)

As I have mentioned before, most of my children never saw a doctor while living at home and eating what we provided. And we provided lots of milk.  At one point it did get a little out of hand because the kids loved milk. Shary had to limit the milk consumption because the kids were drinking us out of house and home. Soooo Shary told the kids they could only have two gallons per meal which equaled 6 gallons of milk per day. During that time none of our children had cavities because they had plenty of calcium from milk to strengthen their teeth. They fell out of trees and off of bikes and didn’t break bones because their bones were dense with calcium from the milk they drank. In our two hundred and thirty-two parenting years, we only had two “broken bones” Our daughter Leah fell of a galloping horse and Melody was injured playing soccer. One of the girls had a mild fracture and the other one broke her collar bone. The doctors said they did not need to be set or put them in a cast, both of them simply wore a sling for a while. Just so don’t think the rest my kids were sissies and lived a very safe and protected life. I threw in a couple of pictures of them doing normal, Schauermann kid things. Sorry, I don’t have any pictures of when they were water skiing behind a car in our drainage ditches. That, like most of the things they did was not approved by mom or dad, but it does illustrate that milk will make a body more resilient.

So… what does the word of God say about Milk?

 Exodus 3:7-8 says that God was going to bless his people by taking them to a land flowing with milk and honey. That statement is made over and over in the scriptures until it has come to be synonymous with God’s blessing. You would think that would be enough to convince most believers that God’s intention was clear that milk was for them to enjoy, but not so.  Here are three of the most common reasons Christians give for not drinking milk.

  1. A common argument Christians give to discourage the drinking of milk is… “The Bible is only referring to animals drinking their own mother’s milk,” The Apostle Paul, lays that misconception to rest in…

I Corinthians 9:7  “who tends the flock and does not drink of the milk?”

  1. I’ve also had people tell me that the milk the Bible is talking about was only goat’s milk not cow’s milk. Again, the Bible makes it plain that cow’s milk is also in God’s plan for your diet.

Deuteronomy 32:13-14 says “He (God) nourished him with…curds and milk

from herd  and  flock.”

  1. The next objection is, “Milk is only for babies and not for adults.”

Proverbs 27:27 says, “You will have plenty of goat’s milk to feed

you and your family and to nourish your servant girls.” 

So according to the Bible, goat’s milk and cow’s milk will nourish you, your family and even your hired help.

One caveat or exception for all of this is if you happen to be lactose intolerant or have some kind of food allergy. Often times if you eliminate foods the Bible says not to eat, eliminate stress, or you put some other essential nutrient back into your diet, the allergy or intolerance will go away. Under normal circumstances, milk is undoubtedly the best drink on the planet.


Our daughter Leah, the one pictured above, developed lactose intolerance while going to college. She had an athletic scholarship at Oregon State University. Her sport was crew, which required many, many hours of practice and many hours away from school to compete. Getting good grades and competing at that level created a lot of stress. As soon as she graduated her lactose intolerance disappeared.

Some have suggested that pasteurized homogenized cow’s milk is bad for you, because it has been altered. If you can get all natural non-pasteurized non-homogenized organic milk, then I would recommend it. But if pasteurized, homogenized cow’s milk is your only economical choice, it is far better than pop, coffee, tea or juices. Compared to anything else you can drink; milk is superior; it’s what your body needs.

Whole milk is better than skim or 2%. The reason whole milk is better for you is because the fat God put in milk helps you absorb the calcium. When we drink skim milk, we are reducing the amount of calcium our bodies can absorb.

Absorption of nutrients is what really matters. There is a major problem in the labeling of our food. Animal husbandry is way ahead of us on this issue. Why do I say this? Because the amount of minerals or vitamins listed on a label for human consumption is very misleading. You may read the “Nutrition Facts” on a cereal box that state a serving of this cereal contains 45% of your daily need for calcium. But what they don’t tell you is that since the calcium is not a natural source, it is not completely digestible. So it doesn’t matter one whit how much is there it only matters how much is digestible, everything else will go out of your body as waste products.  In animal nutrition this has been known and published for a long time. A great example of this is that raisins have a very small amount of iron in them. So they are usually ignored as an important source of iron. But, because the iron in raisins is almost 100% digestible, they are an excellent source of iron. Raisins are a far better source of iron than most cereals. Raisins can eliminate anemia in many people. Sometimes the unnatural sources of iron actually make people more anemic because they are almost completely indigestible and cause digestive bleeding. For years’ manufactures kept adding more and more iron to baby formula, but babies got more anemic the more iron they added. God made our food right in the first place, contrary to what many people believe, we have not made improvements on what he created. The same thing is true for calcium and calcium supplements.

Goat’s milk is actually more digestible than cow’s milk, so if you can afford it and it is available in your community, I would recommend goat’s milk. But… what my family drinks is good old homogenized, pasteurized, 4% whole cow’s milk. Why? Because it is readily available and fairly inexpensive, which was important when our family could consume more than two gallons at each meal.

People are often afraid to drink whole milk because they believe that it will make them fat. Study after study has shown that just the opposite is true. A study, published in the European Journal of Nutrition, is a meta-analysis of 16 observational studies. There has been a hypothesis that high-fat dairy foods contribute to obesity and heart disease risk, but the reviewers concluded that the evidence does not support this hypothesis. In fact, the reviewers found that in most of the studies, high-fat dairy was associated with a lower risk of obesity.3 People who drink whole milk do not have as much trouble with their weight as people who drink skim milk or 2%. Our family has always used whole milk and our kids, if anything, have always been a little on the thin side.

There are also people who have been told not to drink milk because it has chemicals and hormones in it. First if you are substituting soda for milk because you believe farmers have put chemicals in your milk, you haven’t solved the chemical problem. Look at the ingredients in soda, it actually says it has chemicals in it. Second, I went to dairy college and worked on dairies and we did not put any chemicals or hormones in the milk or cows. It is illegal to do so and the creameries test for it and will reject all your milk if they find any hormones or drugs in any of your milk samples. Our family has been consuming large quantities of milk for over forty years with no obvious ill effects. There are far more dangerous side effects to your health when substituting other drinks for milk. God made you and he made milk for you.

If you are drinking milk and still experiencing calcium deficiencies symptoms (Arthritis, joint problems, insomnia, poorly functioning immune system and irritability), you might try taking ground up cartilage (Knox gelatin), it helps in the absorption of calcium. Calcium is actually laid down in the bones on a cartilage matrix. In a healthy body, this cartilage matrix, makes up between 25-40% of your bone mass. If you don’t have enough of this matrix, your body will be unable to use the calcium you consume. 5 One small package of Knox gelatin in orange juice each day will help your calcium absorption and as an added benefit, it restores worn joints.

Your bones are the body’s storehouse for calcium. In a healthy body, when you have a high need for calcium, your body will go to the storehouse and get what it needs so you can sleep, eliminate cramps and fight cavities and hypertension. When the storehouse is empty, the only thing left to do is suffer or take drugs. God has a better way! Got milk? Milk does a body good! No, the Dairy Farmers of America did not sponsor this message, but they should!

Butter is better, way better!

Happy Nurse


Why is this nurse so happy???

Butter Dianna 

Because Diana Anderson eats butter instead of margarine! That one change in lifestyle saved herself and her family from a 75% increase in heart attacks, higher rates for cancer and Alzheimer’s. Ok there are other reasons Diana is happy, she loves her family and she loves God, but so do a lot of other Christians and those Christians have been taught that God really has nothing to say about what we eat. Unfortunately many Christians are getting sick and dying just like everyone around them, but that is not God’s plan. In Exodus 23:20-26 God reveals his plan.  The gist of that passage is this; “If you listen carefully to all that I (God) say and do it, I will remove all sickness from you and give you a full life span.”

God has placed his approval on butter and science is backing him up. The Harvard Medical School did a twenty-year study, which was published in January 1993. The study was entitled “The Harvard Nurse’s Health Study.”3 It was conducted with 90,000 nurses, half used butter and half used margarine. After 20 years it was discovered that the nurses using margarine had 75% more heart disease and heart attacks than the nurses who used butter. The nurses using margarine also had a higher rate of cancer and Alzheimer’s.

 Sarah and Abraham of bible fame, ate butter, red meat and drank milk. Sarah lived to be 127 and was so beautiful, that at 65, “the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very beautiful. 15 The princes of Pharaoh also saw her and commended her to Pharaoh.” (Gen 12:14-15) Sarah was so vivacious that she carried and gave birth to a healthy child at 90 years old. After giving birth the King of Gerar found her so attractive that he wanted her to be his wife. Abraham was so healthy that he lived to be 175. Evidently, the butter they ate didn’t hurt them. Maybe, just maybe, it was good for he and his wife.

We were sold a bill of goods when we were told by renown doctors and scientists that we needed to stop eating butter and eat margarine instead. There is an old country song by Willie Nelson were the doctor tells Willie to stop drinking and Willie responds, “There are more old drunks than there are old doctors so I guess we better have another round.”

 butter 5

 The average couch potato lives to be 79 years old1, the average doctor only lives to be 72. If your doctor tells you not to eat butter just tell him “There are more old butter eaters than there are old doctors, so I guess we better stick to butter.”

Scientists created margarine thinking they were improving on butter.

 Our society has made “Science King” but the king has no clothes.

 1 Corinthians 3:19 states… “The wisdom of this world is foolishness to God.”

     Butter            vs          Margarine
butter 4

Most of our institutions of higher learning have completely rejected the wisdom found in God’s word and our society is paying a high price for that mistake. Colossians 3:2 states that “In him (Christ) are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”. The more we listen to Jesus and his word, the more wisdom and knowledge we will possess.

 Isaiah 7:14-15 “Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Emmanuel. By the time he learns to reject what is bad and choose what is good, he will be eating butter and honey.”

Wow, when Jesus was old enough to choose what is good and what is not, he chose to eat butter and honey. It is also interesting to note that in Genesis 18:8 we are told that Abraham offered angels a meal of butter, milk and red meat…   and they ate it with no complaints! In Deuteronomy 32:9 it says that God alone led Jacob and fed him with fruit, nourished him with honey, oil, butter, milk, red meat, wheat and grape juice.

In an article by Dr. Dwight Lundell. “Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease.” The upshot of it is that everything that we think we’re doing to promote cardiovascular health, like not eating butter, is actually contributing to cardiovascular disease. “Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.” Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year. We are eating less and less butter and suffering more and more disease.

According to Dr. Lundell, it is not butter that is to blame for the increase in heart disease and diabetes, it is sugar and other highly processed foods. “This is a good way to visualize the inflammatory process that could be going on in your body right now. … While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades.” “This repeated injury to the blood vessel wall sets off inflammation. When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels. While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there, I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator — inflammation in their arteries.” Using butter substitutes like corn oil and soybean oil make the problem worse. One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of omega-6;” remember, that’s bad, “soybean contains 6,940 mg. Instead, use olive oil or butter.”

A review from Cambridge University, published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine in March,17 is the latest analysis to confirm the absolute lack of evidence that consuming saturated fat (In butter, eggs or milk) leads to heart disease. The June 23, 2014 Time Magazine cover story,18 publicized the fact that refined carbs, sugar, and processed foods are the real enemy—not the saturated fats found in foods such as butter, eggs or milk.

Here is another reason to eat butter instead of margarine. According to researchers at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, substituting margarine for butter can make you stupid. According to the Auckland researchers, children who ate margarine every day had much lower IQ scores by the age of three-and-a-half than those who ate butter. At an early age, butter eaters already averaged IQ’s 6 points higher.

butter 2

Here are some other unique attributes of butter. According to Dr. Joel Wallach, margarine will become carcinogenic (Cancer producing) in a split second, when heated.  Butter does not react to heat in that way. We have noticed an unusual property that butter possesses, an attribute that other oils do not share.  Butter can be cleaned up with hot water only, It doesn’t need soap to get it off your butter dish. Almost all other oils are very sticky, which is probably why they stick to your arteries. God knew what he was doing when he made butter and put his biblical stamp of approval on it. So please don’t use the last of your margarine. It’s not worth it.  Just throw it away and replace it with butter. You might be able to fool Mother Nature, but you can’t fool the body God gave you.

My family and I have been using butter since 1972. I use it instead of mayonnaise, I use it to fry my eggs in the morning. I put it in my pans before cooking to keep things from sticking.  I use it on peanut butter sandwiches. I make my toast with it, cook fish in tin foil and cover the fish with butter and honey. My wife uses butter instead of Crisco or margarine for cookies and frosting. Hey I know what you are thinking, “You are a health food fanatic and you eat cookies and cake?” Yes we do; not very often but if you try to never eat sweets you are probably going to do two things you don’t want. You’re probably going to make other people not like you and you are more likely to get a bad attitude and quit the whole healthy food thing altogether. Believe it or not there is a health and wellness blog called “Eat The Damn Cake” What at hoot. Don’t be so pinched, relax and enjoy life, you will live longer.

So contrary to what we were taught by the USDA, and our doctors and teachers. substitute butter for margarine, canola oil, vegetable shortening etc. and you will be happier, healthier and enjoy your loved ones longer.

Honey is not just sweet, its medicine!

Honey sweet health food

   Honey is the only food that never spoils?

5500 year old honey
5500 year old honey found in the Caucasus mountains





 Proverbs 24:13a     “My son, eat honey because it is good,”  

 Deuteronomy 11:9 “And that you may prolong your days in the land which                                                  the Lord swore to give your fathers, to them and their                                                       descendants, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey.” 

 1 Samuel 14:29      “Jonathan said, “My father has made trouble for the land!                                               See how much better I feel after just tasting a little of this                                               honey! 

 Isaiah 7:15              “He (Jesus) will be eating curds and honey when he knows                                              enough to reject the wrong and choose the right,

 Mark 1:6                 ” John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt                                         around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.”

delicious honey

God says “eat honey because it is good”! Unlike sugar and other sweeteners, honey has many healthful benefits. King Saul’s Son Nathan was a mighty warrior, his people were enslaved by their mortal enemies the Philistines. God encouraged Nathaniel to challenge the Philistines and God then gave Nathaniel a great supernatural victory. As soon as his father Saul heard that the war had begun, he issued an order that everyone must not eat until the battle was over. Nathaniel was not present when the order was given. While in the midst of battle he became famished and out of energy. He saw some honey and ate it. Immediately he felt better. When he heard what his father had commanded he challenged the wisdom of that order, since he gained strength after eating the honey, and that strength lasted the rest of the day. Sugar and other sweeteners do not produce the same effect. They may give an initial rush of energy but quickly there after your energy level will drop below what it was before you ate the sugar. You end up worse off after eating the sugar.

Twenty-four different times in Bible history, God said he would bless the people with milk and honey. He even said that it would prolong or lengthen their lives. People who eat honey will live longer than those who use sugar or other sweeteners.

Dave Newman

Dave Newman, director of the Astoria Rescue Mission is a close friend of mine and is an amazing physical specimen. Dave is constantly exercising and doesn’t have an ounce of body fat. He has actually competed as a MMA cage fighter, but Dave was also a sugarholic, that means he was addicted to and lived on sweets and refined foods. Without warning his health took a major turn for the worse, he was making repeated trips to the emergency room with chest pains and other heart related problems. His wife Amy and their children began to make plans for life without Dave. I gave Dave this book you are reading, he read God’s advice, and put God’s advice into practice. So what happened? In Dave’s own words… “I’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to Pastor Chris and his personal studies in the development of his book, (God’s Guide To Biblical Health and Healing). they were instrumental in the recovery process, that not only led to a full return of health from a year long struggle of chest pain and constant trips to the hospital, but though prayer and the tips outlined in his book, I was in better shape than that of the previous nine years.”

Honey isn’t just sweet, it’s medicine!

Honey has been fond to be your best medicine for upper respiratory infections. In 2005 the American College of Chest Physicians declared that OTC (over the counter) cough remedies were largely ineffective for people of any age. In a Consumer Reports article, it was reported that honey appears to trump over-the-counter cough medicine as a treatment for coughs. In a 2007 study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, 105 children ages 2 to 18 who suffered from upper-respiratory infections received either no treatment, honey, or a honey-flavored over-the-counter cough suppressant. Those treated with OTC cough medicine took the longest to recover and those treated with honey recovered the quickest. In January 2008 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said that over-the-counter cough medications posed unacceptable risks to children under age 2. In a 2011 article in the journal of food and chemical toxicology; it was stated that according to many studies on treatment of breast and lung cancers, honey is a good chemotherapeutic agent. It is an intelligent food. While it is selectively toxic to tumor or cancer cells, it is non-cytotoxic to normal cells.

Honey doesn’t spoil because bacteria cannot live in it. For this reason, historians tell us that in ancient times kings were buried in coffins filled with honey. Rumor has it that Genghis Khan was buried in honey. For ages people have been using honey on burns and skin lacerations to stop the possibility of infection. God in his infinite wisdom, preprogrammed bees to create honey with a vary low average ph level of 3.9, bacteria cannot live in such an acidic state. Honey also contains hydrogen peroxide, a substance known throughout the world as a strong anti bacterial. A study published in Nature magazine, makes a correlation between adequate levels of hydrogen peroxide and white blood cell function. Researchers are saying when you are sick or injured, “white blood cells converge on the site and initiate the healing process, “if” adequate levels of hydrogen peroxide are in your body.  So if you want to have a strong immune system eat honey.

There is nothing in the Bible by accident. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy; “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful…”  The bible makes reference to what Jesus ate and what John the Baptist ate. Listen to this: Isaiah 7:15  “He (Jesus) will be eating curds and honey when he knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right,” When Jesus was old enough to choose for himself what was good or bad, he chose to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. That is what we would expect the bible to say but instead, it says he chose to eat honey. The bible also tells us that John the Baptist ate honey. This information seems unnecessary. Who cares what they ate? Well, evidently God cared and God still cares what we eat, because he loves us and wants the best for us. He does not want us to get tumors or cancer; he does not want us to suffer from upper respiratory infections. He wants us to live long, he wants us to choose the right things to eat and reject the wrong things to eat. If you want to sweeten something you are eating switch to honey. I used to put ketchup on my hamburgers, probably because of the sugar in the ketchup. I have switched to honey and it actually tastes better. Jesus ate “curds and honey” I tried it. I love cottage cheese and peaches in sugar syrup. Now I have cottage cheese with honey, wow it’s like eating ice-cream. Honey tastes good and it is good for you, that is probably why Winnie-the-Pooh is always in such an agreeable mood.

Red meat or no red meat???

104 year old red meat eater

What is so special about this Man???

Reverend Grandville Clark

In 2008 it was my pleasure to meet and have lunch with Reverend Otis Grandville Clark. At the time, Reverend Clark was 105 years old. He still had all of his teeth, didn’t wear glasses and his vision was great. Reverend Clark still had a driver’s license and drove to the meeting I had with him. Was Reverend Clark just lucky to have great genes? Not a chance, Reverend Clark did something that gave him an advantage over almost all of the people he outlived and we are going to share with you what that something is. But before we do you need to hear how amazing this man was and how amazing you can be.

When I met Reverend Clark, he was living in the state of Washington and was making regular trips to Africa for mission work. The reason for our meeting was to discuss our common work in Zimbabwe.  Below is a picture of Reverend Clark, ministering at a church we support in the city of Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe.

One year after I met him, he traveled to Texas, and on a Sunday morning attended the largest church in the United States; Lakewood Church, pastored by Joel Olsteen. After the service Reverend Clark waited and spoke with Pastor Olsteen. Joel found him so energetic and alive that he made a point to include him in his bestselling book, Everyday a Friday.  Here is what Joel had to say…

“I recently met an older man that appeared to be in his seventies. I was surprised when he told me he was 106 years old. It wasn’t just his unlined face and healthy appearance that threw me off, he was so happy, so mentally sharp, so engaged with everyone around him. He stood in line nearly forty minutes, waiting to visit with me. I told him we could have pulled up a chair so he wouldn’t have to stand. He told me “I don’t need to sit down, when I grow old I can sit down”. He was a good-natured and handsome African American man. I said “I can’t believe you are 106, you don’t have a wrinkle on your face. He replied “Joel, black don’t crack”. Then he told me two or three more jokes, we laughed and laughed. When he walked away he turned around and said to everyone “I’ll see you next year”. I had no doubt he would live another year. He seemed so healthy, he spread joy everywhere he went. He had a sense of humor, he loved to laugh.”

             So what was Reverend Clark’s secret? Reverend Clark obeyed almost everything the bible says you need to do to live a sickness free long happy productive life. Each week in this blog we will share with you what we, Reverend Clark and numerous other people have discovered about abundant healthful living. Reverend Clark lived to be 109 years young and full of life.

In Deuteronomy 33:25 God states that he wants our “strength to equal our days” Reverend Clark’s strength was equal to his days. The bible states, “Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone. Deuteronomy 34:7

I am here to tell you that you can do it too!  Why? Because God has said it, and other people are experiencing it, why not you? Someone is going to live to be a hundred and healthy, might as well be you!


          So let’s start with the most important thing Reverend Clark did. He ate red meat twice a day. I know you have been told that red meat is bad for you. Have you noticed that the people who are telling us that, and avoiding red meat, have all kinds of health problems when they get past 60. So forget what the so called “experts” say and listen to and follow God’s Word.

The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, ‘Say to the Israelites: Of all the animals that live on land, these are the ones you may eat: You may eat any animal that has a split hoof completely divided and that chews the cud.’”     Leviticus 11:1-3

God must have felt that this was important because it is the first food mentioned in the law. The animals included in this list are cattle, bison, deer, antelope, elk, sheep, and goats. These animals provide us with the food we call red meat. Just a note; there are many differing opinions as to what constitutes red and white meat, so when we use the terms, red meat or white meat, we are using the criteria found in Leviticus 11:1-3. So we would call beef, elk and sheep red meat as opposed to pork, horse, cat and dog which are white meat because they do not chew the cud or they do not have a split hoof.

In a study done by the University of Chicago, weanling rats were fed two diets. Half were given a perfect vegan diet of 100% grains, fruits and nuts, while the other half were fed the same grain, fruits and nuts with the addition of red meat, milk and eggs. The vegan rats lived an average of 555 days and the meat-eating rats lived an average of 1020 days, almost twice as long. 4

Some people have complained about that study because they point out that we aren’t rats. They have a good point, though our digestive system is similar and is the reason rats are used as an indicator for humans in tests.

So to put that argument to rest, a study was done by the state of Colorado, which is probably one of the most conclusive studies done to determine what it takes for humans to live long healthy lives. This study proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that God’s laws concerning eating red meat were for our benefit. This study was published in the Denver Post.5 The people conducting the study interviewed all the known centenarians living in Colorado (people who were more than 100 years old). What they found was astonishing. They sat down with all 415 of them; the oldest was 115 years young. They asked them five pages of questions to determine what factors, if any, might have contributed to their long lives. The questions included such things, as “are you male or female, what nationality or race are you”, along with other genetic factors. Then they asked them environmental questions, such as what they ate, how physically active they were, etc. Of all the hundreds of questions, there was only one question that they all answered the sameEvery one of them ate lots of red meat.

There wasn’t a vegan or vegetarian in the bunch. In fact, they all said that they ate red meat at least twice a day. Not one of them was on the Mediterranean diet (fish, foul and vegetables), not only had their consumption of red meat not hurt them, but instead, it proved that… eating red meat is the very thing that must be done to live past 100.

I mentioned earlier that I had the pleasure of having lunch with Reverend Otis Clark who was 105 years old when I met him. At lunch I mentioned the Colorado study and asked if red meat was a part of his diet. Before he could answer, his daughter exclaimed, “not only does he eat red meat, but he has it twice a day” just like all the other people in the Colorado study. “He has steak and eggs every morning and some form of red meat for dinner every night.” You may find this odd in a health blog but we were having lunch at Burger King in Longview Washington. Reverend Clark was eating a hamburger patty without the bun and drinking milk, no white bread, no condiments, just red meat and milk. Otis Clark has been pursuing this Biblical lifestyle since the 1920’s. Otis has simply obeyed God’s word about food, thinking, prayer, rest, etc…and it has allowed him to live a full, loving lifespan.6 If you follow us every Saturday we will give you all that God says about living large, happy productive lives. The truly sad fact, and the reason we feel this blog is so important is that a lot of Christians are dying young. Many of them have been serving Jesus right up to a disabling illness or premature death. They missed a full lifespan because they were never taught what the bible says about food, specifically red meat.

Many people say they don’t want to live long because they think they wil be a burden on others.  Another fact about the Colorado study is that 82% of the centenarians in the study were still physically active, working and living productive, enjoyable lives, past the age of 100. 5

A study that looked at depression in adults determined that people who do not eat meat are 30-50% more likely to suffer from depression than people who do eat meat.7 The Journal of the American Medical Association published a study that said with a 9% increase in red meat intake you could expect a 45% decrease in your chances of a stroke. 5

So if you want avoid strokes and depression or if you want to have any chance of living healthfully past 100, you’re going to have to take the Bible’s advice and eat red meat. Most people I talk to are delighted to hear this. God does warn us in Leviticus 3:16-17 not to eat the fat or the blood of these or any animals. Blood and fat are full of toxins. It is presumably for the same reason we are not to eat organ meats, (kidneys, intestines, heart, brain, etc.) so lean red meat, not organs, at least twice a day is a great start toward a healthier longer life.

Stay tuned to this blog each Saturday join us and the Wellness Gospel Team. Together we will help our families and friends “remove all sickness from them and live a full lifespan”

God’s “Plan A” – is Divine health.

The only consistent path to sickness free living, is to spend time each day with the great physician, Jesus Christ, and follow his advice.
