Genesis 1:29

"And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."

6And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day

i recently been hearing about foods like tomatoes and potatoes being bad for people if they have something like arthritis. it's not scripture.

Apologies, my last sentence should have read, "Though I suppose if someone is strict about this matter, then for conscience sake they would avoid any fruit that has seed within it, regardless as to whether at some point earlier, the fruit was actually produced from a seed & had seeds in it."

 

Chris's comment on 2020-06-04 16:42:17:

That was an interesting discovery, Ceyz. Most of our fruit & vegetables today are either grown from seed or have seed in them. There are instances where a very few manage to fruit without fertilization or where farmers/scientists have genetically modified the plant to produce another variety with no seed. However, I wonder whether any of these existed when God created the vegetation for the Earth & therefore gave that declaration, "the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat." And whether God didn't anticipate us modifying His creation when He made that declaration? Or, could it mean that in the original creation as for any plant today, there must have been a time when the existence of that plant was from a seed & it produced seed in its natural survival of its species? Though I suppose if someone is strict about this matter, then for conscience sake they would avoid any fruit that has no evident seed within it, regardless as to whether at some point earlier, the fruit was actually produced from a seed & had seeds in it.

 

Ceyz's comment on 2020-06-04 08:40:10:

One thing that everyone seems to miss when talking about plants and fruits is that Gen 1:29 states that only seeds bearing plants and fruits with seeds are for food. Which implies that if the fruit has no seed we shall not eat.

Not sure really, only to say this is Gods provision for man kind, he gave us every thing including the holy spirit, God provides, Jehovah Jireh :

 

Nate's comment on 2015-08-24 06:11:54:

From basic understanding, the original food intended for humanity was fruits and herbs, however sin changed the order of things on the earth realm where man began to eat meat instead. That was never Gods plan from the start.

 

Rosa's comment on 2014-12-13 04:50:54:

for my it talks about our meat our body because earth, sea, animals, plants and etc.... we are 1

I 'd just like to point out that we still have God given rights in this country... God gave us every plant and HERB on the face of the Earth... so my question is... Why is marijuana illegal?

 

Esther Caesar's comment on 2014-02-08 03:48:13:

God loves us evev though and everything was provided for us even before the foundation ofthe earth and everything he provided for was good not to harm us so let s tap into his goodness

 

Tegan's comment on 2014-01-31 15:08:09:

Jeff: Before the Fall and the curse on the earth, every fruit was edible. The curse brought death, thorns, weeds etc- so poisonous, inedible things, even allergies and disease. All these things did not exist before because they harm humans and animals. But sin brought bad things into existence.

 

K S REDDY's comment on 2014-01-27 23:28:22:

Meat here means food for creatures including man.That is why we kill and eat animals?

 

Ebenezar Wikina's comment on 2013-11-13 04:36:50:

This shows GOD is a sustainability-thinker. He emphasised 'Seed bearing' because he knew when they eat the fruits, they throw away/plant the seeds to grow more fruits for future generations. Sustainability didn't start today, and yes it's a God-dea(idea)

Coming from a physiological point of view , We are not true carnivores , our physiological processes do not allow us to digest and and absorb saturated fats and all the toxins that are in the animal flesh, we have a very long digestive track , true carnivores have a short digestive track. They have uric acid to break down animal flesh , we do not . Our teeth structure is for crushing , not ripping into flesh... All animal products contain cholesterol, and saturated fats, the plant kingdom does not.
This is why humans and pets have so many degenerative dis-eases.. Especially heart related diseases , cancers ,diabetes and such . We are cloogged up!!!! So eating anothers flesh does contribute to dis-ease , along with many other contributing factors.
Hope this helps

i,m sure our lord could not mention every conceivable allergies with food intake-if so the bible would be as long as Obahma care.

 

Haulda's comment on 2012-05-06 18:31:50:

Fruit was meat for man and if was Good before the disobedience of man. Remember all was GOOD before that.

 

jeff's comment on 2010-12-21 21:42:13:
