Lenten Fish Fries ~ A Pure Conscience? May commit a Mortal Sin? Blasphemy? Honor Him (God) by Frying in Pasture-Raised Beef Tallow ~ Fry Like the Pioneers – with Non-GMO Gluten-Free Ancient Grains (8 grams of Plant Protein) & Omega 3 Sources~

Lenten Fish Fries ~ A pure conscience? May commit a Mortal Sin?

We no longer have to eat ‘CAFO-GMO’ Boogers that produce disease in mind, body & soul!

? Blasphemy is the act of knowingly insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God, religious persons or sacred things. Examples of Blasphemy include:- Burning, destroying and vandalizing (GMO, Modern Factory Farm Abusive processes?) religious places and religious symbols. Desecration of religious symbols ~ the Body & Mind of Christ?
http://www.quora.com › What-are-examples-of-blasphemy

Christians consider meat offered to an idol (GREED & PROFIT)  to be defiled (BY MODERN FACTORY FARM PROCESSES)  & for them, it is, since they must follow their conscience. Their scruples should be respected by other Christians with a stronger conscience. Love dictates that all Christians make allowances for their weaker brothers.

Eating meat ‘offered to an idol’  is not inherently wrong. Meat is “defiled” because it was taken from a pagan (FOR PROFIT)  sacrifice. God “richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment” (1 Timothy 6:17).

Avoid – Omega-3 supplements – Omega 3 is unstable quickly converts to Inflammatory Omega 6 (Body food only) & NO PROTEIN!!

Omega-3 supplements –‘Dinosaur Drops!

NOT  regulation – Mostly Excess & Omega 3 quickly converts to Omega 6 (Inflammatory – Excess Body only food). 

They what was once thought healthy for the heart & CNS become an INFLAMMATORY BURDEN working against healing!

People who cannot meet their omega-3 dietary requirements – should try harder to find reliable Omega 3 foods ,  Supplements lack Macro & Micronutrients, Vitamins & Minerals Phytochemicals & Fiber. 

There are several types of omega-3 supplement to avoid: including: 

  • AVOID Fish oil: Fish oil is the most common omega-3 supplement, and it offers the highest available dose. Fish oil supplements include both DHA and EPA.
  • Cod liver oil: Cod liver oil is rich not only in DHA and EPA omega-3s but also in vitamins A and D.
  • Krill oil: Krill oil is another seafood oil that is rich in DHA and EPA.
  • Algae oil: For people following a vegetarian or vegan diet, algae oils are an excellent source of omega-3s. However, they contain a lower dose than most fish oil supplements, so people may need to take more of them. There are also fewer brands, and they may be more expensive. Some brands include only DHA, but a brand with both DHA and EPA will be more beneficial.
  • ALA supplements: Now GMO-Flaxseed, chia seed, and hemp seed supplements contain only the plant-based omega-3 ALA, which is not sufficient on its own. The seeds also contain omega-6 fatty acids, which can be inflammatory. This means that these supplements do not contribute to a healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 in the body. Although ALA supplements are not a substitute for fish or algae oil, they can be an excellent additional supplement to include in the diet.

The amount of omega-3 in each of these supplements depends on the type of supplement and the specific brand.

Certain plant-based supplements, such as some algae and ALA supplements, include gelatin and are not suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Always read the label carefully.

d limit their consumption of foods high in omega-6. (EXCESS OMEGA 6 –  INFLAMMATORY) 

Foods that are typically high in omega-6 fatty acids include processed foods, tofu, nuts, seeds, and meat.

A variety of Wild caught Fish, vegetarian, and vegan sources can help people increase their omega-3 intake – without omega-3 supplements.

It is essential to include all three main types of omega-3 in the diet and to keep the omega-3 and omega-6 ratio in balance.

From the Bible ~

Christians consider meat offered to an idol to be defiled & for them it is, since they must follow their conscience. Their scruples should be respected by other Christians with a stronger conscience. Love dictates that all Christians make allowances for their weaker brothers.

Maintaining a pure testimony. In 1 Corinthians 10:25-32, Paul again emphasizes the believer’s liberty and what should limit that liberty. If you buy meat for your own use, don’t inquire where it came from; it doesn’t really matter whether it was sacrificed to an idol or not. “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it” (Psalm 24:1). However, if you are invited to dinner and someone there says, “This meat was offered to idols,” then graciously refrain from eating. Since your associate obviously considers the meat to be “tainted” by the idols, do not eat it for his conscience’s sake—even though your own conscience is fine. The Christian glorifies God when he limits his freedom for the spiritual benefit of others.

Compromise with the world. In the letter to the church of Thyatira, Jesus rebukes them for tolerating a prophetess who “misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols” (Revelation 2:20). This is a different situation from what Paul was dealing with in Corinth. It seems that members of the church of Thyatira were partaking of the pagan “love feasts,” celebrated with gross immorality and feasting. These believers were not simply buying meat in the marketplace; they were actually attending idolatrous festivals and joining in the sin of the idolaters. (See verse 14 for a similar rebuke of the church of Pergamos.)

Here is a summary of the Bible’s teaching on eating meat sacrificed to idols:

Eating meat offered to an idol is not inherently wrong. Meat is not “defiled” because it was taken from a pagan sacrifice. God “richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment” (1 Timothy 6:17). 

However, some Christians consider meat offered to an idol to be defiled & for them it is, since they must follow their conscience. Their scruples should be respected by other Christians with a stronger conscience. Love dictates that all Christians make allowances for their weaker brothers.
