So I was rereading Section 89 of the Doctrine & Covenants (you know, the Word of Wisdom chapter) and I came across verse 4:
"Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation--"
I was struck by this. "Evils and designs," "conspiring men in the last days." I totally think that means all the horrible stuff they're putting in our food supply now.
Think about it. Back when this was written, all chickens were cage free, all food was organic, none of the meat had hormones pumped into it, tobacco was just tobacco (not a bunch of scary chemicals), etc. Now the FDA has okayed cloned meat for human consumption? What? Why? Does that cow over there really taste so much better than this cow over here that we have to clone that one? Now we hear so much about buying local food while it's in season.
Hmm, has this occurred to anyone else while reading this particular verse, or am I just a nut case?
