THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMM: Evidently, a major Christian denomination has just reversed their tough stance on alcohol consumption after the convention threatened to introduce an obesity resolution. Their point was the number one killer of Americans is heart disease (not alcohol consumption) and the primary cause for heart disease is an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, and being overweight. So in summary, the number one killer of Americans is the abuse of food.
If were honest, whether we agree or not, this should cause us to take a closer look at this subject. The Scripture says:
1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
I've heard a lot of sermons preached on tobacco and alcohol, but none on overeating and being overweight. We don't really have to wonder why. Most of us preachers (and those on the pews) are guilty. I'm wondering if we don't have a little hypocrisy to deal with here. I know I'm feeling convicted.
Hey, just some food for thought. I found it an interesting read.
Peace. Love. Hope.
