Quote of the day
Apropos the discussion of weight and gospel music, an insightful comment from reader SV:
I think Christians have difficulty with the flesh, oftentimes. You grow up hearing that you are innately evil and that you ought not worry about today as you bank up good deeds for your heavenly crown. The message sometimes becomes ANTI-BODY; the body is evil of its own accord and its functions are the result of the fall of mankind or whatever.
I generally don’t subscribe to a specific set of christian beliefs but I don’t think it would be out of line with christianity to be mindful of the notion that I should eat in a way that is beneficial to my body.
My fear is that the Temple of the Holy Ghost is a little too tolerant of the Big Mac.
I choose not to be.
Exactly. This is the kind of smart stuff that I wish I could think of.Email this Post
