The Daniel Diet

The "essence"

of the Word of Wisdom

in its truest sense ~

See for further explanation of the "Word of Wisdom".



 Elder Bruce R. McConkie:


"I stand before the Church this day and raise the warning voice.

It is a prophetic voice, for I shall say only what the apostles and the prophets have spoken concerning our day.....

It is a voice calling upon the Lord's people to prepare for the troubles and desolations which are about to be poured upon the world without measure.


For the moment, we live in a day of peace and prosperity,

but it shall not ever be thus.


Great trials lie ahead. All of the sorrows and perils of the past are but a foretaste of what is yet to be. And we must prepare ourselves temporally and spiritually."

General Conference April 1979.



"TO PREPARE" --- as spoken by prophets and apostles to us many times...

Let us think of this admonition, in the terms of the Word of Wisdom, in the Lord’s true sense of those words……

I have always said that FOOD STORAGE is NOT a “put away and forget about”

program of the church. 


This "concept" is the key for “preparing” our lives NOW.... to serve Him better and more fully; to living NOW more self-sufficiently by being freer from disease and sickness. 

And for those troubles that are already here, and surely just a foretaste, as Elder McConkie states, of what is to come……we probably should start thinking more seriously in our efforts to get prepared! 


Speaking “temporally”, I'm sure we all could improve our FOOD EATING HABITS!


 These wholesome whole grain foods have been placed on the earth FOR A REASON,



TO BE USINGnot later and later only,

but actively NOW...


I'm thinking this might be the true essence of the Word of Wisdom?
