Capitalism Is Materialism

Do you ever stop and wonder about how our bodies are defiled by junk in our food and water supplies, and pollution in the air? Vaccinations? I do. I think about Scripture that warns us not to defile our temples, our bodies.

1 Corinthians Chapter 3

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of
God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for
the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be
wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

This is serious. We want to avoid defiling our temple of God. Thankfully, Jesus tells us how. And Jesus also tells us very clearly that what goes into our mouth cannot defile us. Of course, we’re not talking about breaking any of God’s commandments, such as not eating flesh.

Genesis Chapter 9

4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye
not eat.

God commanded us not to eat flesh. And we know from Scripture what happens when man disobeys God’s command.

Genesis Chapter 4

17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the
voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded
thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy
sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

When man disobeys God, man experiences sorrow. Some people try to keep all God’s commandments, and they do. Now, some people might worry that if they go to some restaurant that some dirt bag will put some garbage in their food, and try to defile their body. Will this cause the person to be destroyed, because his temple became defiled? No. Jesus explains it to us.

St. Mark Chapter 7

14 ¶ And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto
them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can
defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that
defile the man.

No, in fact, the dirt bag defiled his own temple, by having the evil thoughts to try and defile your temple.

St. Matthew Chapter 15

10 ¶ And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and
understand:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that
which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this
parable.
16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
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.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries,
fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen
hands defileth not a man.
21 ¶ Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre
and Sidon.

We can begin to see that Jesus is not concerned at all with what we eat, or body paint, or implants, etc, other than the mark of the beast, and other than as i said, eating flesh. But Jesus is only concerned with what is coming out of our hearts. These are the things that defile man’s temple of God. Not what man eats or gets injected with. Jesus also tells us that we don’t need to worry that some people are going to somehow defile our bodies, and we will miss out on the Big Surprise Party in Heaven! Because, Jesus tells us that no man can overcome whatever God wants. It’s not possible for man to overcome the will of God. That’s crazy talk. That’s the kind of stuff that Satan goes around saying. Right before Satan gets cast into the Lake of Fire, that is.

St. John Chapter 10

22 ¶ And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was
winter.
23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.
24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How
long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works
that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto
you.
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is
able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
