It seems we will believe anything today. The more absurd, the more we want to take it in as truth. I include here some of the old timers that we fell for and still swallow. Turkey does not make you fall asleep on Thanksgiving. It is sheer gluttony and over indulgence.
Chocolate does not give you pimples. (What a relief to find this out!) Apples are not a miracle cure for anything. Honey, sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, high fructose, etc. All have the same bodily effects. Autism is not caused by vaccinations.
Carrots don’t make your vision better. (Thank God, for I am not a fan of carrots!) Your brain cells aren’t stemmed by your age. Stuff your brain (not your stomach!) In spite of yogurt ads, yogurt can’t fix your stomach issues. Gum won’t clog your digestive system. What goes in, goes out.
Have I rocked your world? Challenged your common sense? Will you at least take Jesus’ word for it?
And Jesus called the people to Him and said to them, Listen and grasp and comprehend this: It is not what goes into the mouth of a man that makes him unclean and defiled, but what comes out of the mouth; this makes a man unclean and defiles him. (Matthew 15: 10-11, AMPC)
