29 Gospel Principles-The Lord's Law of Health

  1. 1. The<br />Lord’s Law<br />of<br />Health<br />"Chapter 29: The Lord’s Law of Health," <br />Gospel Principles, (2009) pg 167-172<br />
  2. 2. Our Bodies Are Temples of God<br />16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwellethin you?<br /> 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.1 Corinthians 3:16–17<br />19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?<br /> 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19–20<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. We Are Commanded Not to Take Certain Things into Our Bodies<br />
  5. 5. Good Things for <br />Our Bodies<br />
  6. 6. Work, Rest, and Exercise Are Important<br />The Lord counsels us not to labor more than we have strength for: (see D&C 10:4)<br />“Cease to be idle; cease to be unclean; … cease to sleep longer than is needful; retire to thy bed early, that ye may not be weary; arise early, that your bodies and your minds may be invigorated” (D&C 88:124). <br />We are also told, “Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work” (Exodus 20:9). <br />
  7. 7. Pres. Thomas S Monson has counseled us that we should keep our bodies healthy:<br />“Nutritious meals, regular exercise, <br />and appropriate sleep are necessary for a strong body, just as consistent scripture study and prayer strengthen the mind and spirit” <br />
  8. 8. Promised Blessings for Living the <br />Lord’s <br />Law of Health<br />
  9. 9. H O T D R I N K S <br />B E A S T S <br />G R A I N <br />Y I E L D E T H <br />T O B A C C O <br />H E R B <br />W H O L E S O M E <br /> D R I N K S<br />T H A N K S G I V I N G <br />B O D Y<br />O R D A I N E D <br />M A N <br />
  10. 10. President Boyd K. Packer taught: <br />“Our physical body is the instrument of our spirit. In that marvelous revelation the Word of Wisdom, we are told how to keep our bodies free from impurities which might dull, even destroy, those<br />delicate physical senses which have to do with spiritual communication. The Word of Wisdom is a key to individual revelation”(in Conference Report, Oct. 1989, 16; or Ensign, Nov. 1989, 14).<br />
  11. 11. The Lord also promises that the destroying angel shall pass us by. President Heber J. Grant said, <br />“If you and I desire the blessings of life, of health, of vigor of body and mind; if we desire the destroying angel to pass us by, as he did in the days of the<br />children of Israel, we must obey the Word of Wisdom; then God is bound, and the blessing shall come to us” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Heber J. Grant [2002], 192).<br />
  12. 12. The Eternal Significance of the Word of Wisdom<br />
  13. 13. The Eternal Significance of the Word of Wisdom<br />All saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones; And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures; And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint. And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen<br />
