I've been wondering just what it is with t.v. commercials. It seems we are told what to do, what to think, and what to buy.
The latest that has peeked my interest is "Tooth Whitening"
What's the big deal about how white are teeth are? What difference does it make? What does the Word say?
2 Your teeth are like a flock of shorn sheep
4 "Come to Beyth El and transgress, to Gilgal, increase transgression. And bring your slaughterings every morning, your tithes every three days. 5 "And burn an offering of thanksgiving with leaven, proclaim voluntary offerings, loudly. For you have loved this, you children of Yisra'el!" declares the Master Yahuah. 6 "And I also gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and lack of bread in all your places. But you did not turn back to Me," declares Yahuah. 7 "And I also withheld rain from you, three months before the harvest. Then I would send rain on one city, and on another city I would not send rain. One part was rained upon, and where it did not rain the part would dry up.
9 "Yehudah is a lion's cub; from the prey you have gone up, my son! He bowed down, he crouched like a lion. And like a lion, who does rouse him? 10 "The sceptre shall not turn aside from Yehudah, nor a Lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and to Him is the obedience of peoples. 11 "Binding his donkey to the vine, and his donkey's colt to the choice vine, he washed his garments in wine, and his robes in the blood of grapes. 12 "His eyes are darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.
Ok, so it seems that white teeth are a tov thing and so is having food stuck in them.
Yup - see in Amos? "And I also gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and lack of bread in all your places. " Clean teeth = no food. Next time someone sees that bit of pepper stuck in my tooth, please just comment how blessed I am...LOL
Anyway, back to the teeth whitening products... why are they pushing them so hard? What's going on with that. I don't trust the media, big corporate anybody, or advertisers.
So. . . . try this link out for size:
So, they put floride in the toothpaste and drinking water - it makes the teeth look bad, then they sell stuff to make them whiter...
