Jesus made an interesting reference to our bodies in Luke 11:34-36.
He said the eye is the light of the body. And if the eye be single (see clearly--i.e., spiritual discernment), then the whole body will be full of light.
Wow. Think about it. If our entire body is full of light (God is light)--with no darkness (Satan, his minions, his error, his works) in it, how can sickness dwell there?
Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. Sickness in our body is always a work of the devil--sickness in Job's body was the work of Satan, although Job was a righteous man who had done nothing to deserve it. So we must not point fingers and accuse people of sin just because they may be suffering from sickness or disease.
And, in Luke 11:34-36, Jesus links spiritual discernment with physical health.
In verse 35 he said it was because of this, that we should be very careful to walk in every bit of light that is available to us.
None of us can know everything, and what we don't know certainly can harm us, but what is even more harmful, is to hear and not do (Matthew 7:26-27).

According to Luke 11:34-36, darkness in our understanding (mind and spirit), invades our physical bodies--always.
That is why it is critical to love the TRUTH (light/life)--and then walk in it.
Darkness (ignorance/error/sin/death) is not always due to ignorance.
It can be a deliberate rejection of the truth on our part, because the truth does not suit us.
Take heed that the light which is in you, be not darkness.


Be careful what you eat...
