"Whole Wheat" Christianity

Many people, millions of people, go to their local grocery store each week and buy "enriched white" bread for their families, having been led to believe that it's nutritionally superior to "old fashioned" whole wheat bread. It's almost always not. In reality, "enriched" white bread is usually nutritionally inferior to "unenriched" natural whole wheat bread.

How can that be, if vitamins and minerals are added to the "enriched" bread?

The process of making "white" bread removes a great amount of the natural vitamins, minerals and bran in the wheat. Some governments, when they discovered that such refined bread was grossly inferior to natural whole wheat bread, passed consumer-protection laws that required manufacturers to "enrich" their highly-refined products by putting back at least part (and that's all that usually gets put back, a fraction of what they refined out) of the nutrients that they removed. But even then they commonly use unbalanced, synthetic substitutes for the natural vitamins that were removed, which are often used to produce "natural" vitamin supplements for sale to people who are not eating natural products, like whole wheat bread!

That legally-required "enrichment" eventually became, deliberately or not, a marketing gimmick that very often gives people the impression that they are getting a superior product, when in fact, in most cases, the enriched white bread is still inferior to "unenriched" whole wheat bread that doesn't need to be "enriched" because everything that God put into the wheat to begin with is still there. A simple consumer reality is that "unenriched" whole wheat bread almost always contains more health-giving vitamins, minerals and fiber than "enriched" white bread.

"Whole Wheat" Christianity

Whole Wheat For many, Christianity has become a highly-processed "product" that claims to be superior to the natural Word of God, the Holy Bible. It's often slick, brightly packaged, but like some highly-refined and "enriched" bread products, it isn't much more (spiritually) nutritious than the wrapper that it's peddled in. On the other hand, the Holy Bible is the "bread of life," and in it there is nothing missing or artificially substituted. The Word of God is where the Truth, the whole Truth, is found.

"And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst." (John 6:35 KJV)

"Sanctify them through Thy Truth: Thy Word is Truth." (John 17:17 KJV)

"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of Truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness." (2 Timothy 2:15-16 KJV)

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other Gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other Gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." (Galatians 1:8-9 KJV)
