Matthew 15:11: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
The only thing that the above scripture reveals is that the Bible teaches falsehood and ignorance. Yet undeniably, the Bible does contain truth; but as a whole, it will never be a replacement for logic or reality. Some people are so enslaved by the teachings of this book to the point where they will convince themselves that the sky is red if the Bible told them so. Not us; we choose logic and reality over anything that is written in any book, the truth is the only thing we are 100% committed to. We warn that you question everything because everything is subjected to having flaws.
It is these types of ignorant teachings, found in the Bible, that undermine the importance of that which is necessary to obtain optimal health. This is the root where people have gathered the indoctrination of believing that a person’s diet has no bearing on their soul or spirituality. We must correct this, for we have seen the societies of those who live by these principles and they are absolutely repulsive. Ever wonder why the most peaceful and loving among humans are those that live in the wild and only consume that which is natural as food? If they were to follow some of the ignorant teachings of the Bible their societies too would be filled with conflict and diseases just like the religious ones.
Since we all know that a plague is a disease, and a plague also signifies a defiled person, how can anyone say that what you put in your mouth doesn’t defile you when it is an absolute fact that unhealthy foods are the primary cause of all diseases (plague)? How can having life be a blessing, yet the principal means of maintaining life is valueless in this regard?
In this same chapter, verse 17-18, it highlights the Bible’s ignorance of basic biology. It reads, “17. Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? 18. But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.” Whatever goes into the belly from the mouth just doesn’t go out the body; it also goes to the heart and every organ in the body.Religious people talk a lot about the significance of the blood and heart, but don’t they know that the blood is primarily made from the food that is consumed by the body through the mouth?
This explains the mentality of those whose diet is plant based is distinctively different from those who feed on dead carcasses (flesh/meat). This is because what enters into the mouth does have a spiritual, mental and physical effect on our nature as living beings. The food that enters the belly goes to the heart where it has a profound effect on the characteristics of the heart. This is why you will never find a senseless murder who is a devoted vegan because his food affects the spiritual nature of his heart.
There is absolutely no book, whether it is claimed to be from God or not, can undo the laws of Nature (God’s creation). Let us make it clear, we do not condemn the Bible as a whole, only the idea that it is perfect. We only pick sense out of what make sense and throw away the nonsense. It would be wise for all to likewise do so, or bear the consequences of ignorance.
