I know this has been discussed, but found this article thought provoking anyway:
Basically, it discusses how all thing natural are not safe, and how we have made cultural distinctions about natural products that are artificial. So that is a bit ironic, isn’t it?
Anyway, are we as Christians more susceptible to natural labeling due to the Genesis statement made by God that “It was good?”
Are we not an agent of God in creation in how we domesticate plants and animals, make GMO plants to better feed the hungry, and use CRISPR in the treatment of disease, as well as produce vaccines and antibiotics? Where do we draw the line, if there is a line that we should not cross?
What criteria do you use in deciding whether to pay attention to a “natural” label?
