Summary: Jesus speaks of the body as being the living temple of God and refers to His own body as a temple. His words are misunderstood, as was much of His message to those who lived in those times. The Bible states that health and wellness are found with God. If your body is full of disease, it is because of the choices you have made. All disease comes from our diet. Our genes have nothing to do with whether we get sick or not. Disease does not run in our families due to genetics but rather dietary habits that tend to lead to many of the same diseases.
