The combination of the wheat, rice, and vegetable diet with the flesh of the herds marked a great forward step in the health and vigor of these ancient peoples.  Food hoarding developed self-control and created the first problems of capital and labor.  Two great influences which contributed to the early association of human beings were food hunger and sex love.  In primitive times, sometimes a line of hunger march would be ten miles long as it passed over the land gleaning food.  Food was preserved by cooking, drying, and smoking; it thus became the earliest property.  Onagar’s missionaries were the first human beings to cook meat, the first regularly to use fire in the preparation of food.  Prince’s staff taught food preservation. 
Primitive man was for the most part carnivorous; Adamites do not eat meat, but their offspring within a few generations usually gravitate to the omnivorous level, although whole groups of their descendants sometimes remain nonflesh eaters.  The eating of meat was early introduced into the second garden, but Adam and Eve never partook of flesh as a part of their regular diet. 
The welfare of the soul is more than food and drink; the progress in the spirit is far above the need of raiment. The Father provides food for every one who seeks.  Jesus’ true meat was to do will of God and accomplish His Work.  In our living and loving ministry we must serve spiritual food in attractive form and suited to the capacity of receptivity of each of our inquirers.
