From Eliyahu:

Shalom friends, 

Mystery food - yum!On a mission trip to Singapore, I discovered how much I enjoy the food I grew up with, in a new way.

My new friends there took good care of me, and wanted to share their favorite foods with me. In some cases I didn't even recognize what they were serving me! Is that some kind of seaweed in my dish? What is that unusual meat, and what is that strange-colored sauce? ...and what is that, um, unusual smell? I didn't actually ask those questions, because I didn't want to be rude, but I certainly did try to ascertain the answers. This, by the way, is one of the hardest aspects of mission service to adapt to.

When visiting new friends in another country one doesn't want to behave like some sort of food snob. After all, a lot of people take their food very seriously. It's part of their culture. If a visiting missionary is picky about the local food it can create ill will and make it difficult to get across the message. So... part of mission service involves eating some things that, well, may not turn out to be your favorites. However, becoming a food adventurer for the sake of the cause may also introduce you to some new things you never thought you would like - but surprisingly do enjoy.

The fact is though, overall, while I loved my visit with my believing friends on the other side of the world, I did find it a special comfort to return home, and to return to the food that is familiar to me, that I've always enjoyed.

Even if we try something new, most of us find comfort in food, and other things, we are familiar with. Y'shua was alluding to that fact when He said:

No man having drunk old wine immediately desires new, for he says, ‘The old is better.’" Luke 5:39

Not surprisingly, a lot of people feel that way about religion. They want what is familiar. This song expresses the point:

Give me that old-time religion,
Give me that old-time religion
Give me that old-time religion
It's good enough for me

This traditional Gospel song dates from 1873, and possibly earlier, and has been sung by numerous singers and groups, including Johnny Cash. What does this song say to you? The song itself is very general, simply conveying the idea that the "old-time religion" the singer is familiar with is better than something newer. You might assume that old-time religion is about salvation in Christ, but the song doesn't say that. In fact, it doesn't reference anything in the Bible at all. It conveys only one idea: the old-time religion is preferred.

This Heinrich Zimmer version of the song adds some additional verses I found surprising:

Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
It's good enough for me
Let us worship Zarathustra
Just the way we used to
I'm a Zarathustra booster
He's good enough for me
Let us worship Aphrodite
She's beautiful but flighty
She doesn't wear a nightie
But she's good enough for me

They want the old wine.Obviously, I don't include these verses to promote the pagan worship mentioned in them. On the contrary, my point here, and I think the point Messiah was making, is that just because a system of belief is old, and may be more familiar to a person, doesn't make it true, or right, or even good for you. Age of, and familiarity with, a religious idea is not an adequate test of whether that idea is really from the One True God.

When Messiah came, He preserved the truth of the old, while introducing some things that were new - "new wine" He said. He is still giving us new wine. Those who receive it find it to be really good!   

Just what is the "old wine" He talked about, and what is the "new wine?" Why does it matter, and do you want some?
