Worldwide Childhood Obesity - It May Be Their Saving

Childhood Obesity: Our newest global epidemic …

Lisa Pawloski, PhD, posits that America is not alone in battling this crisis; researchers are now finding childhood (11-18 years old) obesity rates soaring in nations still plagued with hunger and poverty. That indicates to Pawloski there is something beyond the spread of Western culture that may be contributing to the problem. However, I suggest an alternate explanation: God may be preparing "little ones" to survive. If this is truly the end of the age, as a significant portion of Christendom believes, and if food will be the leveraged commodity that compels individuals to join with one or another religious theology, then it might well be, and certainly seems the case, that God is preparing the youth of the world to survive extended famine.

Num 14:29 Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,

but …

Num 14:31 But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.
