Mold In The Time Of Moses

Aug 18, 2007
If your insurance adjuster claims that mold has been around for many years longer than we have and that it does not to the damage that the media and health community say that it does, then perhaps something you should have them read up on is a verse that comes straight out of the Bible and blatantly talks about homes that are diseased.

It is called a leprous plague in the scripture Leviticus 14:34; it appears growing on the walls and if a family went to the priest and said my house is diseased, it was ordered that the people leave the house so the priest could go in and examine it.

If it was determined to be diseased, then the stones of the house were to be removed and taken to a place that was away from town and from where people resided so that others would be safe from the plague. Stones were brought in to replace the ones that were removed and it was watched to see if the mold returned; if it did return, the entire house was torn down and all the debris was taken to where the first stones were dumped.

Mold was serious business in Biblical times just as it is today, but back then there were no formal antibiotics or fungicides to help get rid of the mold either in the body or on a persons property, so most of the time it simply had to be torn down and replaced.

Even the deaths of the firstborns of Egypt are sometimes attributed by scholars to the presence of mold on the food that was stored underground after the locusts came.

If the food was contaminated with almost any mold, especially Stachybotrys atra, it is speculated that it would have been what killed all the firstborn children in Egypt at the time because during that period, it was customary for the eldest Egyptian child in a family to receive a second portion of food.

Food that has been stored underground, especially if it was stored directly on top of the soil, would have been a perfect food also for mold. The Jews alive at the time would not have suffered from this plague because they ate herbs, lamb, and unleavened bread, which should have been safe from any mold contamination.

So, do not let your insurance adjuster fool you by trying to downplay the seriousness of mold. It was serious over 2,000 years ago and it is just as serious today.
