I wanted to lay the foundation for my future posts about food… from the Bible of course.
So, does it really matter what you eat? I mean, as long as we use up all the calories we eat each day we shouldn’t gain weight, right? It seems logical to think that, but we need to remember that the different types of food we eat affect our body in different ways. In fact some foods available today our body sees as being harmful and when we eat them our bodies become inflamed. One of my goals for this blog is to show you some harmful foods and healthy replacements. Just because food is manufactured under the FDA’s laws does not mean that it is “helpful” to consume.
“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be enslaved by anything. 1 Cor 6:12
We may think that, since God is sovereign I can eat whatever I want and God will keep me healthy. But did you know that your body does not belong to you?
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1Cor. 6:19-20
And therefore God instructs us to not destroy our bodies:
Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple. 1 Cor. 3:16-17
So, I do believe that God cares about how we take care of our bodies, and therefore, what we eat.
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Cor. 10:31
Do you agree or disagree? Why?
