Being a pastor (Henry Wright), my primary concern is not healing. My primary concern is establishing the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is what Be In Health™ is all about. A lot of Christianity is trying to avoid hell and go to a mystical place called heaven, but they don’t understand the fulfillment of the Lord’s Prayer. “Thy will”, the Father’s will be done in earth as it is in heaven The gospel offers eternal life and the continuation of God’s plans for mankind, but the battle is right here, right now. The kingdom of God doesn’t need to be established in the heavens. It needs to be established on earth.
We’ve made everything about nutrition. If health were simply the product of nutrition, we wouldn’t need God. Our God would be our belly. We wouldn’t need God, and the body temple maintenance has its place for all those watching who have health food stores, nutritionists, etc. There is a place for body temple maintenance, but in my study of the Word about the causes of disease that are found in the scriptures, nutrition isn’t even listed as a cause of disease. Now in countries that have famine and things of that nature, it’s a different story, but in America and Canada, we’re not really in famine. We’re pretty full gospel, and if we have anemic issues or the like, it’s because of other issues. Body temple maintenance is important. No question about it! But the kingdom of God is not nutrition (that’s what meat and drink are), but righteousness, and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
You can’t have joy in the Holy Ghost unless you have peace, and there’s no peace unless we have righteousness…
