Let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. ~ 2 Corinthians 7:1
What contaminates the spirit? Anything that takes our eyes off Jesus. For those of us addicted to food need to purify ourselves from the things we eat and drink that aren't good for us. To "detox" means to rid ourselves of toxic substances. We detox from artificial, manmade foods out of reverence to God - out of the knowledge that God made our bodies and wants us to take care of them. We detox so we can enjoy the abundance of foods God created to nourish us. Detoxing is about abundance, not deprivation, because the foods we are sdaying no to aren't really foods at all!
The best thing you can do for your health is to avoid factory-made science projects that haven't been made God in nature. Emphasize bringing in the array of delicious, replenishing foods that God made for your pleasure and well-being.
Food For Thought:
God has made an abundance of good and flavor-rich foods for our enjoyment, so purifying our bodies can actually be fulfilling and satisfying.
