What is America coming to? Is the average American not capable of deciding what their diet should consist of? Even though we have far too many obese and unhealthy people among us - do we really want the government putting their fingers in our dinner plates?
In New York City - there are currently lawmakers trying to do just that - putting their hands not only into the wallets of the people, but now into their dinner plates. They're proposing a law that will make it illegal for eating establishments to prepare food using any salt at all! The penalty could be $1000 fine each time they do! http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/mar/11/new-york-restaurants-salt-ban
(Search the internet for further information.)
My take on this? Its a snapshot of what big government is trying to do to America. My Bible tells me that we, believers in Jesus Christ, are the salt of the earth. Our government is trying to get rid of the salt!
Matthew 5:12-14 tells us: 'Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.' KJV
Don't be quieted or silenced completely. Share the love of Jesus liberally - openly and consistently!
