God's Instruction on Diet

What does the word of God teach?

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”
– Genesis 1:29.

“Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”
– Genesis 3:18-19.

“Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.”
– Genesis 9:3-4.


Should they be considered as food?

Mushrooms belong to the family of fungi. Because they are not green-pigmented, chlorophyll herbs, have no leaves, roots or seeds and do not need light to grow, they are not vegetables.

“It is on diseased, lifeless organisms that fungus roots.” Education, p. 189.

     Fungus was created to cleanse and purify the atmosphere – to prevent decaying matter from creating a miasma and destroying the health-promoting fresh air so vital for our well-being. Fungi should be viewed as filters of the atmosphere and, therefore, certainly not regarded as food. Eaten by us, they pollute our bodies with the toxins they have absorbed. One need only consider how many types of mushrooms are out-right poisonous to man, in order to come closer to an understanding on this subject.
