Is it cruel to eat animals? Should Christians go "Back to the Garden" and only eat vegetables? And what of the raging debates over natural/organic vs. genetically manipulated food sources? Do the Old Testament dietary laws have relevance? Should the federal government establish standards for food? Should it manipulate the food supply? Does it have any role?
When it comes to diet and health, two great extremes define the modern debate. Both serve as pitfalls to the Christian. On the one hand, there is an establishmentarian philosophy which pretends to represent true science — a science which falsely claims to be free from religious presuppositions. On the other hand, there are movements afoot which more overtly derive their conclusions from the religious foundations of New Age thinking, mysticism, and pagan environmentalist philosophy. In Food Heresies, Doug Phillips challenges Christians to reject the myth of food philosophy neutrality and to build their biblical worldview grid so they can wisely analyze the food and health trends within our culture. Doug addresses a host of "food heresies" found within and without the Church today — from radical veganism and health mysticism to evolutionary scientism and statism. Doug takes to task misguided heresy hunters, while also admonishing Christians to beware lest they incorporate pagan thought into their practices.
Food Heresies is included in the Reforming Food & Family DVD Series.
