On Chocolate~ Chocolate is a psychoactive food. It is made from the seeds of the tropical cacao tree, Theobroma cacao. The Greek term theobroma means literally "food of the gods". Chocolate has also been called the food of the devil (snicker snicker); but the theological basis of this claim is obscure. But it seems to affect the brain by causing the release of certain endorphins.
This is a picture of my sister's cacao tree..she does the whole process- from the raw fruit, through fermentation, drying, etc. to chocolate or cacoa.
OK, I was reading a passage from the Gospel of Mk.3:1-15 (when Jesus healed a man with a withered hand). Honestly, I was trying to imagine what was going through that man's head..he must of realized as Jesus did- those religious leaders (like our modern day FDA- lurking around (in an olive grove no doubt) - plotting how they were going to snare Him on some trumped up charges!
Like it or not, most of the stuff we ingest are made up of some kind of chemicals.Now I just found out women's bras contain formaldehyde!! Known as the burning bra for it's chemical finish (giving it that fresh stiff look). Yikes!! What if it were only in push-ups? What if they ((boosted)) your endorphins too?
Look, if they can invent Latisse -a drug the FDA has now approved to grow eyelashes according to Allergan, the company that makes Latisse (don't you love those names)? I'm getting off track...
Well, you can take your nitrates in bright red wieners or sulfides in lovely plum wine.. either way, we should be good with it..yet watch out, someone else might get their nose out of joint! So, I just wind-up looking for how God uses it all-good and the bad?
This is my final word.. Ga. 5 may list beautiful things to think about..yet it still speaks volumes on the freedom of how to live in Christ so we don't have to then worry about the law~ as He is the fulfillment of it.
Now I want you to throw your 2 cents in..
