Of Vitamins and Cholesterol
Strawberries and Deep Fried Pork Mesentery (commonly called in the Philippines as “chicharon bulaklak”). Mouth-watering and irresistible. Tempting to the eyes and taste buds, no one can just walk away without having a bite. Both are delicious, yet have a different result in the human body. The former is a good source of vitamin C and flavonoids while the latter is a high source of cholesterol.
Whenever I see these on one table, I always remember what Bro. Eli Soriano always teach us. He says that religions are like foods, most will look delicious on the surface but they will be a poison for our soul. We should know how to taste what we hear from preachers, pastors, priests, etc. We must not just consume easily what are given to us. Just like what is stated in Job 12:11
Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?
Before we got baptized in the Church of God, Bro Eli taught us to taste what we hear from different religions. We should be sure of what we are ingesting especially when it comes for the soul and salvation. It will be very fatal for all of us if all we eat are high in cholesterol.
I am thankful that Bro Eli and Bro Daniel Razon, with God’s help, has put up many ways for us to taste the words being preached by religions. They have a twice a month bible exposition, both locally and internationally. People can ask questions about faith and get answers directly from the bible. And now, they have started the marathon bible exposition that runs for 12 straight hours. Everyone now has a chance to know the nutritional value of what they are eating!
With this, I am inviting everyone to have a dinner with us and taste the preaching of Bro Eli and Bro Daniel. They have set up a lot of locations to accommodate everyone. Of course, literal foods will be served for our hungry tummies. We hope to see you there God willing.
