“Calling the rest of the world unclean when your own temple has been defiled . . . “

By Bob McCauley, CNC, MH

A comment came to me:


Did I read correctly that you eat only raw foods and do not cook anything? Rice, pasta, potatoes???

I have long noticed the excessive number of fat people in church and have always struggled with the  way they look down on the rest of humanity, but somehow can’t even see themselves in the mirror. Calling the rest of the world unclean when your own temple has been defiled through years of gluttony and food addiction takes a lot of nerve.

If eating meat, fried potatoes and a Reeses peanut butter cup is considered toxic and defiling of God’s temple, are we going to all have to eat exactly like you to make God happy or is there a balance between feasting and fasting. No more beer – no more coffee if we really want to live in heaven properly???

Please don’t ever think that I am trying to be a smart ass. I really am trying to sort all this stuff out for myself. The two primary warnings to the gentile were to abstain from sexual immorality and don’t drink blood. Whatever food you had or ate was left up to your own conciense before God. The kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of peace love and righteousness in the Holy Spirit. Proverbs does say that the sluggard does not roast his prey. I think God definitely hates lazy people far more than meat eaters.

I’ll sign off for now.

Peace my friend,



My response was:

Ideally, we should only eat the way I suggest we do in my book, Honoring the Temple of God.   How close do the best Christians live compared to the sinless life that Jesus led?  Not close.  But they are much closer than the average person who knows nothing about God.

I think monks live closest to the austere life of Jesus, and yet they are so far.  And they know nothing about my health philosophy, so even they have a long way to go in that regard.

Another point is that fresh, homemade cooked food is one thing, McDonalds and Twinkies are another.  The later is true garbage while homemade cooked is so much healthier.  But raw is the best and I try to eat as much raw foods, and as little cooked foods, as I can manage.  Raw Foods are 95% of my diet and it is really hard to do.  It took me years to get here.  And I primarily do it to honor the temple that God has given me.

Knowing what I know about diet and health I felt I had no choice.  Eat as raw as you can and sin the least amount that you can.  Both honor God in their own way.

Must we be pure to get to heaven?  Must we be sinless and 100% raw?  If so, then none of us will get there.  Buddha taught moderation in all things.  I admire that greatly.  Like monks who live a life of austerity, we must strive as best we can to be pure of heart and intent.
