Is wheat our friend or foe? A diet aid or mealtime nemesis? A blessing from above or a curse from below? Is all wheat the same? Join me as I interview Sue Becker of the Bread Beckers on this controversial topic.

Leaning on both science and Scripture, this crucial teaching is for anyone interested in wheat-free diets, gluten-free diets, the Wheat Belly book, or wheat in general.

Sadly for believers looking for help with this, they won’t get much help from the pulpit. To fill this void, here are six Bible verses to ponder to help you jump start your eating habits in 2013.

God has wisdom for every subject imaginable: dating, marriage, sex, money, servant leadership. This makes me wonder: why did God designate some animals clean and others unclean? Did He just flip a coin? Are the Leviticus 11 commands arbitrary? Or have we overlooked some kind of hidden wisdom in the dietary laws?
