The Stimulating Effects of *Tea and Coffee

The stimulating diet and drink of this day are not conducive to the best state of health. Tea, coffee, and tobacco are all stimulating, and contain poisons. They are not only unnecessary, but harmful, and should be discarded if we would add to knowledge temperance.— The Review and Herald, February 21, 1888

Tea is poisonous to the system. Christians should let it alone. The influence of coffee is in a degree the same as tea, but the effect upon the system is still worse. Its influence is exciting, and just in the degree that it  elevates above par, it will exhaust and bring prostration below par.
Tea and coffee drinkers carry the marks upon their faces. The skin becomes sallow, and assumes a lifeless appearance. The glow of health is not seen upon the countenance.—Testimonies for the Church 2:64, 65, 1868 CD 420-CD 421.1

"Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet.  Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts." Isaiah 3:16,17

“The small, high heels cramp the movement, injure the carriage of the person, and often deform the feet. The bend given to the body by the extreme fullness of the skirt behind is very ungraceful. There is no beauty in the present style, and leaving aside the awkwardness of the design, one would suppose the shackling of the limbs and the oppressive heaviness of the dress, on so delicate a part of the body as the spine, would deter women from such fatuity.” {HR May 1, 1872 par 7}

"As for your knees, a study from Stanford University found that heels that are 3 1/2 inches or higher put so much stress on your knees that it could increase a woman's risk for osteoarthritis, a common chronic condition of the joints which affects approximately 27 million Americans.-- "

Sisters, let us be prayerful as we dress to give God glory and not Satan.  I am speaking to you as one who knows this struggle all too well.
