If God had His way, water and food would be free for the taking (actually, 
your food - mainly fresh, juicy, ripe fruit - would also be your water), and 
we'd have no need for electricity.

Given that this is a fallen world, things aren't so optimal. Nevertheless, the 
Amish and similar communities show that in many cases it is not actually 
necessary to use electricity, nor to pay others for food or water.
