A reflection on genetically modified food

Reflections for the day

Romans 8:18-23

 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O Lord, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.


Prayer moves the hand that moves the world.

– John Aikman Wallace

A reflection on genetically modified food

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many are able to express a love for thou, and we acknowledge that thou love that is expressed for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that is enduring, and we acknowledge that thou love thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is eternal. We acknowledge that thou love thou hath for all of Mankind is one that is there for all, and we acknowledge that thou love thou hath for all of Mankind is one that thou desires all of Mankind to perceive and to discern.

Heavenly Father, thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful, and we praise thou for thou power, and we praise thou for thou mightiness. We acknowledge that thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and we acknowledge that thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and we acknowledge that thou art Our Heavenly Father who is in possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, thou art the creator of thou world that we live in, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by all of Mankind.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the nature of a food that is described as one that is modified in a way that is genetic. We acknowledge that thou plants, and we acknowledge that thou animals, and we acknowledge that thou trees are susceptible to what is described as a ravage of a disease, and are susceptible to what is described as a ravage of a drought, and are susceptible to what is described as a ravage of an insect. We acknowledge that the intention of some is to offset an effect of a ravage, and that the intention of some is to alter what is described as a make-up that is genetic of an organism, and that the intention of some is to alter a make-up that is genetic of a plant, and that the intention of some is to alter a make-up that is genetic of an animal, and that the intention of some is to alter a make-up that is genetic of a bacteria. We acknowledge that by altering a make-up that is genetic of an organism will mean that there will be a resistance to an insect, and that there is likely to be a resistance to a temperature that is not fitting for the well being of an organism, and that there is likely to be a resistance to a disease.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge thou instructed all of Mankind to be a keeper of thou world that we live in, and we acknowledge thou instructed all of Mankind to have a dominion over all things, and we acknowledge thou instructed all of Mankind to subdue thou earth.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire that many will reflect carefully upon a consequence of altering what is described as a make-up that is genetic of food. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a consequence of producing what is described as a crop that is modified in a way that is genetic will alter a make -up that is genetic of another organism, and will be one that will be a risk to all living things.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is led daily, and we ask thou to guide a self to turn to thou always, and we hope and we pray that a self will turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that a self will seek a guidance, and we hope and we pray that a self will perceive and a self will discern an understanding of thou.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that all of Mankind will reflect carefully upon an action, and we hope and we pray that an action of a self is one that is fitting in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou Holy Spirit, is, and was, and will always be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, that governs over all who are of thou world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Loving Father, we see the wonder of nature all around us and yet scientists want to interfere with the natural order of things. Is this right? When penicillin was introduced it was overused and subsequent antibiotics have demonstrated that bacteria have adapted and become resistant. Will this happen to genetically modified foods? It does make “food for thought”! Amen.
