THOUGH I THINK THE BOOK "WHEAT BELLY" IS A REAL EYE OPENER AND EVERYONE SHOULD READ IT, I WANT TO SAY HERE ...... the writer is probably not a religious man, from some evolution sentences he uses, I gather he is an evolution man and not a Bible man.
From God's perspective, wheat was created by Him for our good. Now good comes under organic - no GMOing - and BALANCE ..... NOT eating it way out of balance with other created foods.
If so eating wheat and all other good and clean foods created by the Lord, then eating some wheat is not going to harm you. People would still live long productive healthy lives, if everything was natural organic and eaten in BALANCE.
Jesus gave parables about wheat and the chaff. He would hardly pick wheat for those examples and parables if wheat per se was some terrible monster that you had to avoid in any amount at all costs.
In ancient Israel you had TWO grain harvests - BARLEY came first then by Pentecost the WHEAT harvest had been gathered in. Some of the scarifices to the Lord were GRAIN sacrifices.
WHEAT, BARLEY, OATS, AND some other gains are NOT evil of themselves; God created them for our good, but good is organic and eaten in balance with all other good foods the Lord created for us.
ANYTHING over done, and altered with modern science (as all GMOing) is bad for us. Wheat has become our enemy because it has been GMO by modern science, and we OVER-EAT it like there is no tomorrow - sadly we are a wheat-belly society, and hence over-weight and then all kinds of other problems of ill-health because we have miss-used wheat.
