In Leviticus chapter eleven, God told His people what foods to eat, not only to separate or distinguish them from the gentiles but also because He knew what was best for our bodies. He made everything and knows what is threatening and can be damaging to our physical health.
The number one killers amongst Black people are diabetes and high blood pressure. If Blacks don’t educate themselves regarding diet and nutrition many will continue to self-destruct. Slavery is over yet many still eat the slave’s food. Our forefathers had to eat the leftovers, we don’t have to. Pork! No way would God’s people have any association with bar-b-que ribs, fried pork chops, chitlins, ham, hog head cheese, pork sausage, pig tails or feet. A pig will eat a rat. God knows it’s a scavenger, that’s why He gave directives as to what was acceptable. The animals with cloven hooves and don’t chew the cud, or have split hooves and don’t chew the cud are not good for the body. Fried catfish, prawns, shrimp are also scavengers and are unhealthy. Although all of our food is already sanctified through the word and prayer, we still need to use wisdom. We spend a lot of time in church praying about sicknesses that could easily have been avoided. Proper diet and exercise will annihilate the statistics regarding blacks and the silent killers. It’s simply “Slave Food”. Now that we are out of slavery and are in the Fortune 500, business CEO’s, millionaires, politicians, government officials, school board superintendents and share leadership in every positive category existing, let’s also graduate from the slave diet and live healthier. In order to break a curse, we must break from it. Moderation is a good thing.
