Amazingly enough, I am currently reading through Ezekiel in my daily Bible reading regimen (actually, more like every day but Saturday, but that's another story). I too noted the seeming incongruity in trying to sell a product based on advice given while God was telling Ezekiel how badly he was going to kick some Israelite ass. And, to keep the reference intact, does one need to eat Ezekiel 4:9 pasta while lying on their side for 390 straight days?
So - what products did YOU purchase ??? You have a great knack for finding cool stuff in places like this!
I was in 'Mustard Seed' yesterday seeking out organic yogurts! Alas, most were loaded with sugar (they don't sell products with 'artificial' anything), so the calorie point was too high for me) Prices high too. This morning I ordered the Salton yogurt maker. I will purchase one carton of good organic yogurt to use as starter, and go from there. Cost of machine - $14.99 ordered directly from Salton. Amazingly, amazon.com has no less than 128 reviews of this inexpensive appliance, 99% of which are glowing. I can hardly wait to get it!!
So, what DID you buy at the natural food store??
Well, that was the thing that got me: in the verse, God basically tells Ezekiel, "OK, you're getting survival food here, and you're going to be lucky to get it." This does not, in my book, symbolize the type of upmarket feelings one would expect to derive from the pasta. Of course, I could be wrong, as I haven't tried the stuff yet!
As for what else I bought -- I found some organic pico de gallo flavored snack chips. Also, I bought some organic black bean soup. The chips were worth it; we shall see if the soup is.
I used to LOVE Ezekel 4:9 bread. That stuff is so good. Two slices of that toasted is as filling for breakfast as bacon & eggs. You need lots of butter, though, because toasted it is as abrasive as a ScotchBrite scrub pad.
