No Greater Joy
Which word in the title is erroneous:
It’s the word fiction. The food you eat is no
longer the food God made for the human body. Evolutionary
scientists have irreversibly changed the DNA of plant, animal, and
human cells. They are uncreating God’s creation, rendering staple
foods unfit for human or animal consumption.
I recently read two books, and the following
article contains quotes from those books (indicated by quotation
marks), with some of my own observations. You need to buy and read
both of them: Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette by Jeffrey
Smith. The converging lines of evidence in these books indicate
conclusively that genetically modified (GM) crops are inherently
dangerous and may be responsible for the unfolding health disaster
in the U.S.A.
All living organisms, whether plant or animal
or human, are constructed of cells. Each cell contains the entire
DNA chain of information that constitutes an organism―what it
is―and differentiates it from all others. Each cell is made of
billions of atoms, intelligently designed and arranged to contain
and dispense complex information that assures the function,
adaptation, survival, and procreation of the species.
Genetic engineering is the process of
artificially tampering with these God-given, natural genetic
blueprints. Genetic engineering (or bio-engineering) is a
technique to splice, delete, add, isolate, and recombine or
transfer genes from one organism to another that may be totally
unrelated. Alteration of genes and chromosomes causes disruption
and disturbance in the biochemical structure of species (plant or
animal) and can result in species mutation.
“The discovery in the mid-1970s that scientists
could transfer genes from the DNA of one species into that of
another was heralded as a major scientific breakthrough. Plants,
animals, and other organisms could now become equipped with genes
that could never occur naturally and exhibit traits not previously
found in their species or even their kingdom.
“Scientists have since worked on some
interesting combinations. Spider genes were inserted into goat
DNA, in hopes that the goat milk could contain spider web protein
for use in bulletproof vests. Cow genes turned pigskin into
cowhides. Jellyfish genes lit up pigs’ noses in the dark. Arctic
fsh genes gave tomatoes and strawberries tolerance to frost.
Potatoes glowed in the dark when thirsty. Human genes were
inserted into corn to produce spermatocides.
“The single dominant GM trait is herbicide
tolerance. Crops are engineered to survive an otherwise toxic dose
of weed killer.
“The second popular GM trait is a built-in
pesticide. The plant produces pesticidal toxins in every cell.
Monarch butterflies are killed when feeding on the corn. If a plant
kills bugs, do you want to breathe its pollen, eat honey made from
its nectar, or ingest the plant?
“Virtually an entire Filipino village of about
100 people living adjacent to a large feld of Bt corn [genetically
altered to produce a toxin that kills bugs] were stricken by a
disease. The symptoms, which appeared at the time the corn was
producing airborne pollen, included headaches, dizziness, extreme
stomach pain, vomiting, chest pains, fever, and allergies, as well
as respirator, intestinal, and skin reactions. Many if not all of
the villagers exposed to the GM-maize pollen in 2003 have remained
ill to this day. Furthermore, there have been fve unexplained
deaths in the village. In total, 96 people got sick. In addition,
nine horses, four water buffalo, and 37 chickens died soon after
feeding on the GM maize.”
The increase in the number of people afflicted
with chronic diseases in the United States roughly corresponds to
the period when Americans began eating GM foods.
Proponents of creating Genetically Modified
Organisms (GMO) try to sell us the lie that what they are doing is
just hybridization by a different method. Not so. Genetic
engineering is not in any way similar to hybrid plants or
selective breeding. “Plant breeders have worked with this system
(selective breeding of plants) for thousands of years, selecting
parents with desired characteristics, such as yield and disease
resistance, in the hope that the offspring expresses both. With
genetic engineering, however, a single gene is removed from the
DNA of one organism and forcibly inserted into another. This
doesn’t happen naturally.
“A pig can mate with a pig and a tomato can
mate with a tomato. But there is no way a pig can mate with a
tomato. Using genetic engineering, however, pig genes can be
inserted into a tomato and vice versa.” This transfer of genes
across the natural barriers established by God at creation is an
arrogant and reckless confusion of nature. It is introducing chaos
into perfect order.
“Another problem is that inserted genes may
transfer from food into gut bacteria or internal organs. Animal
studies demonstrate that ingested DNA can travel through the body,
even into the fetus via the placenta. Trans-genes from GM crops
fed to animals have been found in their blood, liver, spleen, and
kidneys. The only published human feeding trial on GM food verifed
that genetic material inserted into GM soy transfers into the DNA
of our intestinal bacteria.”
Manufacturers of genetically modifed organisms
assure us that the genetically modifed cells are destroyed in the
stomach when eaten and cannot be transferred to the host. However,
Sidney Pierce spent 20 years studying the green sea slug that eats
algae and somehow transfers the plant genes into its body. The
slug then possesses the algae’s ability to produce chlorophyll
from sunlight—a universal trait of plants but not of animals. The
young slugs must eat algae until they accumulate enough of its
genes to begin manifesting the plants’ ability to convert sunlight
into energy. The slug can then be sustained on sunlight alone,
like a plant, without further eating. Pierce says, “It certainly
is possible that DNA from one species can get into another
species, as these slugs have clearly shown, but the mechanisms are
Scientists have discovered genetically modified
cells present in the organs of animals fed GM food. Corrupted DNA
never becomes uncorrupted. It is passed on to future generations.
“Lab animals tested with GM foods had stunted
growth, impaired immune systems, bleeding stomachs, abnormal and
potentially precancerous cell growth in the intestines, impaired
blood cell development, misshapen cell structures in the liver,
pancreas, and testicles ... alerted gene expression and cell
metabolism, liver and kidney lesions, partially atrophied livers,
inflamed kidneys, less developed brains and testicles, enlarged
livers, pancreases, and intestines, reduced digestive enzymes,
high blood sugar, inflamed lung tissue, increased death rates, and
higher offspring mortality. About two dozen farmers report that GM
corn varieties caused their pigs or cows to become sterile. 71
shepherds say that 25% of their sheep died from grazing on Bt
cotton plants (altered to be toxic to bugs), and others say that
cows, water buffaloes, chickens, and horses also died from eating
Filipinos in at least fve villages fell sick
when nearby Bt corn was pollinating, and hundreds of laborers in
India report allergic reaction from handling Bt cotton. Soy
allergies skyrocketed by 50% in the United Kingdom soon after
genetically engineered soy was introduced; and one human subject
out of the few tested showed a skin prick, allergic-type reaction
to GM soy, but not to natural soy. In the 1980s, a GM food
supplement killed about one hundred Americans and caused sickness
and disability in another fve to ten thousand people.”
Genetically altered soy, corn, cotton, and
canola and their derivatives are found in 70% of all processed
foods. If you have ever eaten a corn chip, corn fakes, or a
tortilla, you have eaten GM organisms.
Tomatoes were genetically engineered to have a
shelf life of months instead of just days. Great for farmers,
right? Except that when they fed laboratory rats a diet of GM
tomatoes, many of them quickly developed lesions in their
stomachs, and about a fourth of the rats died within two weeks.
The control group of rats fed natural tomatoes did not manifest
any of the negative reactions experienced by the GM-fed rats.
By now you might be thinking, “Well, I will
just avoid corn, soy, and canola oil, and eat squash and papaya
instead.” They are reengineered as well! Do you avoid sugar,
relying on artifcial sweetener? Aspartame is the product of
genetic engineering. Do you ever drink milk or serve it to your
children? What about cheese or yogurt? Cows are injected with
genetically engineered growth hormones. It so speeds up their milk
production that the cows are used up and discarded in about two
years. Many farmers testify that twenty-fve percent of their herds
don’t live that long. They suffer from infections in their udders,
making it necessary to constantly inject them with antibiotics.
What do those same growth hormones do when ingested by humans?
Just examine the statistical rise in breast cancer in the last 20
Eat more chicken? It, too, is injected with GM
organisms. As the breasts on chickens get bigger, so do the
breasts on young boys eating the chicken, and breast cancer
continues to rise.
Wild animals will repeatedly reject the GM
crops in preference for natural corn and soy. Deer and elk will
walk through a large GM field to get to a small plot of natural
corn. If geese, squirrels, rabbits, deer, elk and rats have an
aversion for GM crops, should humans eat them? What do the animals
know that we don’t?
What does God say about modifying his creation?
“So God created man in his own image, in the
image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And
God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which
is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is
the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and
to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is
life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And
God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very
good” (Genesis 1:27, 31).
Can you believe it? God designs his human
creation after his own image, tailors the plant and herbs to the
exact food specifications humans and animals require, and then
pronounces that it is all very good. And what do scientists do?
They say, “It is good, but not good enough; we can do better,” and
then proceed to re-create what God created. It produces havoc, and
they forge ahead undaunted in their “mission.” They are like
four-year-old children dismantling a computer to improve upon it.
I say with the Psalmist, “I will praise thee;
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from
thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see
my substance, yet being imperfect; and in thy book all my members
were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet
there was none of them” (Psalm 139:14-15).
If the above verse says anything, it says that
before we were born, God designed the very substance of our
beings, recording the design in a book, and then fashioned us
after that secret design. We are awesome and wonderful in design,
a marvelous work of God. Who could dare to improve upon the master
design of the God of creation?
Clear prohibition against modifying God’s
“Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers
seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the
fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled” (Deut 22:9).
Note, God did not want his original seeds mixed
so as to cause them to lose their inherent uniqueness. The result
of mixing seeds produces a seed that was “defiled”.
“Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let
thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field
with mingled seed” (Leviticus 19:19). Again, God is concerned to
maintain the seed’s and the cattle’s original character.
“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass,
the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after
his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after
his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself,
after his kind: and God saw that it was good” (Genesis 1:11-12).
God designed everything to bring forth after its singular kind,
and neither a mixed kind, nor a new kind.
We live in strange times, when man has begun to
move into God’s laboratory and is attempting to sabotage his
design and change the very structure of creation. They dream of
cloning humans, mix human and animal genes, throw in a few plant
genes and come up with a Frankenstein monster. Science fiction has
become a vision for tomorrow.
There was an earlier time, about 1800 years
after creation, when men pooled their knowledge and built a city
and a tower to reach unto heaven. “And the LORD said, Behold, the
people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin
to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they
have imagined to do.” (Genesis 11:6). This is a fascinating verse.
God concedes that when many people combine their knowledge, they
will not be restrained from accomplishing their wildest
imaginations. So he divided them into diverse language groups to
prevent them from conferring and sharing their knowledge and
skills. That language barrier God put into place is now obsolete.
Scientists of the world cooperate and share their knowledge. We
are again at the place where “nothing will be restrained from
them, which they have imagined to do.”
But God will have the last say in the Great
Tribulation “which shall come upon all the world, to try them that
dwell upon the earth” (Rev. 3:10). “And the nations were angry,
and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should
be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants
the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name,
small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the
earth” (Rev. 11:18). I have never been sure what this passage
referred to—“God destroys them which destroy the earth.” Surely it
is not killing the snail darter or wiping out the buffalo that has
angered God to the point of exercising “great wrath” upon all
flesh. Nothing man has ever done is one percent as destructive as
permanently changing the DNA of God’s creation. Look out Monsanto,
Dupont: here comes the Judge!.
What can you do?
First, you must be informed. The
military-industrial complex is little more than a local gun store
compared to the agricultural-industrial complex. When media
outlets have attempted to publish the facts concerning GMOs in our
food chain, they have been intimidated into silence by their
largest advertisers—the producers of genetically modified foods.
When politicians get wise to the conspiracy to control the food
chain, they are silenced by the fear of losing large gifts to
their campaigns. You must get informed.
Purchase the book, Seeds of Deception, and
become acquainted with the issue. Go online, and read about GMOs.
Stop buying foods that have been altered. Write to the
manufacturers, and inform them that you will not eat their GMOs.
All we ask is that the government mandate
labeling of GM foods. Just put a label on the product that says
Genetically Modified. There have been many failed attempts to force
labeling. The industry knows that once products are labeled, the
public will ask, “So, what’s the difference?” and it will all be
over for the agricultural-industrial complex. Labeling. Demand
In the meantime, grow your own food. If the
grocery store labels food as organic, it is not genetically
modified. Learn which plants have been altered and which ones
maintain the integrity God gave them. GM tomatoes and potatoes
have been removed from the market due to obvious health tragedies.
Rice and beans are not modified, and, to my understanding, neither
are any of the salad vegetables. Wheat, rye and barley are still
good. Avoid all cooking and salad oils, and all prepared foods
containing canola, corn, or soy. Avoid bread, crackers, chips,
cakes, pies, and cookies containing corn, soy, or oils or
derivatives of the same. Avoid milk, cheese, yogurt, cream cheese,
sour cream or any food prepared with milk products. Avoid meats
from animals that have been fed GMO grains or injected with GMOs.
You do realize that you won’t be able to eat at
your standard restaurant, don’t you? If in the process of throwing
out all processed foods you cease eating all corn syrup and sugar,
within three days to a week you will see a remarkable improvement
in your family’s health and in the temperament of your children.
