_______________ SIN ________________   Leave a comment

Intentional Sin is an unrighteous act, committed by someone who is aware that such behavior is wrong.
*For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwells no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me. (Romans 7:18-20)
Untrolled Sin is the lack of self-control over wrongful acts committed, despite having the knowledge to know better than to do such things.
Self- Discipline
Self-discipline is needed to control our weakness: anger management, behavior management, health habits, self- abuse, and the abuse of others.

How Do We Find The Source To Solve Such Problems?
Self- Abuse
Engaging in unprotected sexual acts with different or various people, put a person at risk of contracting infectious and sexually transmitted diseases.
Poor Eating Habits
An unhealthy diet of food and drinks, can lead to poor health. Poor health, weaken the body defences to fight against germs that causes sicknesses.
The Complete Person is Body Mind and Soul
*What? Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19)
Good Health
When the whole person is in good health, the body will function properly for a great number of many years, because the aging process is very slow.
* And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper. (Psalm 1:3)
*Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. (3 John 2)

The End Results of Sin Is Destruction
* Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. (James 1:15)
* For the wages of sin is death; but the gift, of God is eternal life. (Roman 6:23)

Nutrition

In order for food to be used by your body, all of the carbohydrates must be broken down into monosaccharides, simple sugars (glucose, fructose and galactose) in the stomach and intestines. They are absorbed in the bloodstream and can be used in various ways by the body.
Carbohydrates are chemical substances grouped together: sugars, glycogen, starches, dextrins, and celluloses, that contain only carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Carbohydrates are one of the three classes of nutrients. They are formed by green plants which utilize the sun’s energy to combine carbon dioxide, and water in forming them.

Definitions:

1. Monosaccharides-a simple sugar which cannot be decomposed by hydrolysis (fructose, galactose, glucose)

How the Body uses Sugar from Food

I.  Glucose
a. Used directly by the body as a source of energy
II. How it is achieved:
b. The pancreas secrets Insulin (hormone)
III. Galactose and Fructose
c.  Converted into glucose in the liver

Note:
 Glucose can be converted into glycogen (Polysaccharide) stored in the liver or muscle for the body’s future energy requirements.

Fats
Provides energy in concentrated forms both visible and invisible.
Visible Fat: butter, lard, margarine and oils.
Invisible Fat: meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy products, chocolate, nuts and legumes.

II. Transportation of Fats in the Blood
a. Carried in the bloodstream bound to protein, forming particles called lipoproteins.

Note: Most of the fats in food are triglycerides. (a combination of three fatty acids with glycerol)
Some foods contain small amounts of cholesterol. The fats in food eaten are dissolved in the intestine by the action of bile salts. This process takes place from the triglycerides split into glycogen and fatty acids entering into the walls of the intestine, and reconstructed into triglycerides which are absorbed through the lymphatic system and carried to the bloodstream.

At the same time the process of fatty acids are being absorbed, the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K are absorbed. One interesting point I will make, cholesterol can be absorbed into the lymphatic system without the need to be broken down prior.
