"This Vegetable Will Fix Everything Wrong with Your Body"


The answer is beets.

They cure cancer and everything else—according to a social media claim.

Granted, beets are good for you. They’re packed with nutrients. They might even cure a few things. (They're even why the drink is pink.*)

Years ago, I asked someone who was planning to visit with us for several months if there was any food she hated. You guessed right: beets. She simply can’t abide beets. So, I told her it was too bad; we eat beets at every meal. (Yes, I was joking, and she forgave me. We had a lovely visit without one single beet making its way to the table.)

When I read, “Beets can fix everything wrong with your body.” My mind went wild!
  • Want a facelift? Eat more beets.
  • Your knees ache? Eat beets.
  • You have a herniated disc? Eat more beets.
  • Acne? Eat beets.
  • Need a hip replacement? Eat beets.
  • Have athlete’s foot? Eat beets.
As absurd as this claim is, anyone with common sense realizes beets don’t cure everything. Yes, they’re good for you. But, there are limits to every super food.

I got to thinking about another universal claim, in the spiritual realm: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

It's absolutely true, yet many people don’t believe it! Jesus—who was God in the flesh on earth—said very clearly He’s the only way to God. Here are some other verses with the same message:
  • Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep (John 10:7-11).
  • Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
  • Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God (Romans 5:1-2).
  • For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father (Ephesians 2:18).
  • For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time (1 Timothy 2:5-6).

Common sense should tell us to trust God’s word for it. There’s One Person who can save—and He is Jesus Christ. There’s One Person who can bridge the gap between us and God the Father, and He is Jesus. There’s One Way to heaven, and that is through Jesus. There is no other way! God Himself says so.

Jesus can fix any problem in your heart. He can forgive you of your sins and give you a new heart. He can comfort, help, and heal your heart. He can mend a broken heart. He alone can do this.

Do you have a need?

Go to Jesus. He is the way.
