What’s An Aristaphagist?

THE FOLLOWING ARE EXCERPTS FROM THE ARTICLE… “Running The Christian Race (Part 3, Sensual Music)”

BE AN ARISTAPHAGIST (Choose the very best)

(see 1st Corinthians 10:31)

.

It was Herbert Shelton who coined the word, “aristaphagist”.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Herbert_M._Shelton.jpg

.

It is composed of two Latin words which mean to “choose what is best”.

.

Of course, Herbert Shelton was perhaps the greatest health reformer in the twentieth century, and possibly of all time.

.

So he applied the term in regards to diet and health.

WESLEY’S ARISTAPHAGIST QUOTE

 

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fruit_Stall_in_Barcelona_Market.jpg

It was, perhaps Luther, or maybe Wesley who once said to the effect, “I will do nothing, except that which brings a Heavenly profit.”

.

A Christian just needs to do what will bring the highest benefit for himself, and not so much dictate to others what is good for them.

.

And if those around us have different opinions on these or other matters, then silence is usually the best course to pursue, on such questions which the Bible does not directly address.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? 

.

But the point to this little section, concerning being an aristaphagist is just this: The life of Jesus was all about choosing what was best.

.

And so, the Christian should try to imitate Jesus in this regard as well.

Whether it’s the type of music we choose; or it’s choosing a healthy diet; or it’s deciding what is to be the very next duty of the day.

.

That’s all that needs to be said about this word and about the concept behind this word, aristaphagist.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman….and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon….And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon….And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness….And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Rev. 21:1-3, 14, 15

.

This Woman of Revelation 12 is definitely fleeing to the mountains . As you can see in this sketch , The Dragon of Revelation 12 is spewing out his water of falsehoods: false gospels, false ideologies, various temptations, false brethren who will embrace her with the poisonous wine of the The Great Harlot of Babylon. These are what comprise this wave of water coming forth from the Dragon’s mouth. (see “Flood Waters of Satan”)
