The Temple Ministries

Protecting God's Temple Through Healthy Living

It is my mission to educate Christians about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Unhealthy lifestyles, habits, and consumptions have a negative effect on our bodies. It is our responsibility to take control of our lives spiritually, physically, and soulfully. Taking charge and acknowledging the importance of all the actions that we take.

We are created as three part beings: Spirit – Genesis 1:26-27; Body – Genesis 2:7; Soul – Genesis 2:7

Our Spirit is our direct connection to God through Jesus Christ (Roman 8:9). Our body consists of 5 components: touch, taste, smell, see, and hear. Our soul also consists of 5 components: imagination, well, mind, intellect, and emotions.

God created us in the Spirit first, body second and soul last. This is the hierarchy of our 3 part being and we have to ask ourselves, which ones are we feeding more? Take charge of your life and have self-control! We know the things that take control of us: cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, and unhealthy food. What are the long-term effects of consuming a high quantity of these products? Illnesses, diseases, cancers, and even death! Temperance (self-control) is the key to living a healthy life.
