LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep…” (1 Corinthians 11:29-30, the Holy Bible).

FASTFOOD CAN KILL YOU!Are you still eating fast food—or food sold in fast food chains? Be warned. Or, better yet, stop eating fast food, stop eating in fast food chains. Why? Because, according to medical experts, these kinds of food could kill you by giving you hypertension, or a dangerous spike in your blood pressure.

In a media report, doctors from the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) and its Philippine affiliate, the Philippine Society of Hypertension (PSH), claimed that fast food restaurants usually sell “high fat and high salt food” which cause essential hypertension, even among very young children.

Dr. Ramon Castillo, a past president of PSH and a member of the ISH, explained that whose who have hypertension are like “walking time bombs—because, anytime, they could explode to develop complications like massive stroke, acute myocardial infraction, and even sudden cardiac death…”

“WE EAT TOO MUCH SALT, FAT, CALORIES”: Dr. Neil Poulter, ISH president, on the other hand said: “We eat too much salt, we eat too much fat, we eat too many calories.” This is the reason why high blood pressure has become the single killing risk factor around the world, with 9.4 million dying annually because of it, Poulter explained.

In the Philippines, for instance, medical records indicate that one in every Filipino has hypertension, or debilitating high blood pressure. This is the reason why, medical experts agree, there is a need for our countrymen to change their eating habits by avoiding too much salt, too much fat, too many calories.

In addition, there must also be a change of lifestyle—one that is marked by physical inactivity at present, to one that is physically active. One leading advice is for people to lessen their use of gadgets and tablets, which often enable many to remain motionless for long periods of time.

ASKING THAT OUR FOOD AND DRINKS BECOME THE BODY AND BLOOD OF JESUS:Among members of the Philippine-born church which is known as the AnakngDiyosKadugo Ni Kristo (AND KNK, or Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ) Church, however, an effort must also be made to obey simple directions from the Bible on how to make sure that the food and drinks that we eat and partake of truly healthy.

One such direction is found in 1 Corinthians 11:23-30. In gist, these Bible verses are telling us that whenever we eat or drink, we should always remember the body and blood of Jesus, our God and Savior who is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, by which we have been forgiven, the penalties due for our sins paid for, and our eternal life in Paradise guaranteed.

Everyone must do as the AND KNK members are doing: they raise their hands over the food and drinks they are about to partake, thank Jesus for these blessings, and then ask, in the Name of Jesus, that the food and drinks become His body and blood, in recognition of the salvation He has given us.
