CAN MINISTERS EAT MEAT?
Ellen G. White : "Let not any of our ministers set an EVIL EXAMPLE IN THE EATING OF FLESH-MEAT. Let them and their families live up to the light of health reform. Let not our ministers animalize their own nature and the nature of their children." (Spalding and Magan, p.211).
Holy Bible : " And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover (lamb) with you before I suffer:" (Luke 22:15 ).
NOTE: The traditional passover dinner which Jesus ate with His disciples included eating a roasted lamb: "And they shall eat the flesh in that night , roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it." (Exodus 12:8).
When Elijah was by the brook Cherith, ": the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening ; and he drank of the brook." (1 Kings 17:6).
Why did God feed Elijah with bread and "flesh" if that would set an "evil example"? Why not bread and cucumbers; or bread and carrots?
IS IT A SIN TO BE SICK?
Ellen G. White : " It is a sin to be sick; for all sickness is the result of transgression ." (Counsels on Health, p.37 and Health Reformer, August 1, 1866).
Holy Bible : " So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown." (Job 2:7).
NOTE: How could all sickness be the result of transgression? God Himself said that Job was "a perfect and an upright man ." (Job 2:3). Paul had a "thorn" in his body that was making him weak. (see 2 Corinthians 12:7-10). Was it a sin for Paul to have this condition in his body?
It is a matter of record that Ellen White was frequently ill . Does this mean that she was a frequent sinner?
