There is a lot in a name! A name can denote identity, purpose, background, and even destination. The word ‘reform’ means to make changes in (something, typically a practice) in order to improve it. The plan of salvation, as stated in the Bible, is to restore mankind from our fallen state to a glorified state with God. This change happens step-by-step as we learn to implement positive changes using the power of God in our lives. In turn, our health will be reformed, making us true Health Reformers!
The internet is inundated with information – ranging from health to politics and everything in between! So why start this journal? Well, the short answer is…because God asked us to. The deeper answer is because the world needs to know! Now, before you click the X at the top of your screen (which we are hoping you’re wont..lol), we’ll explain what we mean.
As a Christian organization, we believe the entire Bible is “given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” With that being said, the Creator of all life on this planet has outlined for us in the Bible the blueprint for maintaining optimal health. In our day-to-day service, we meet so many that are unaware of God’s plan for them in regard to this fact.
God knew this well beforehand as we’re reminded in Ephesians 2:10, that “we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” God has ordained for us to do good. In our case, what is good would be to share what we know in order to help others. This journal aims to do just that! There isn’t any temporal gain for us as a collective, but only fulfilling the duty God has compelled us to help as many people as we possibly can!
Lastly, while there are many positive to having access to the superhighway of information we call the internet, a vast majority of this knowledge has not been filtered through the Word of God. As Christians firstly, and secondly, as a diverse collective of dieticians, herbalists, trained chefs, and educators, our attempt with this health journal is to present contemporary articles on health, natural therapeutics, medicine, and more all through the lens of the Word of God. We hope you enjoy this journey of exploring all things health – physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually here at The Health Reformer!
