I just cannot believe, cannot get over, how SO many people think you NEED to eat health food and/or be in shape to please GOD.
are. you. kidding. me.
I mean, I was reading Mark 7 today, where the Pharisees were whining bc the disciples had the AUDACITY to eat with unwashed hands! Well Jesus told them off for (as i interpret it) adding to GOD’s commands with their traditions, and even voiding some of His commands in favor of them. Well it really really reminded me of the types who say stupid crap like "How come so many in the Church are fat??” without even considering health conditions or poverty bc they are so incredibly ignorant
Like, what did Jesus eat? I’ll tell you what I distinctly remember the Bible saying. (tw - carbs and gluten) bread, (tw - saturated fat) lamb (because of the Passover), and – brace yourselves – WINE!! How fattening and nutritionally lacking! Yet He never sinned. Bc guess what, “ Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; 19 because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats? 20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 all these evil things come from within, and defile the man. “
Seriously. How can you be so worldly minded? Obviously 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 is about the defilement Jesus spoke about; like? Did you forget what He said?? Did you just listen to what your pastor told you without comparing it to Scripture??? Do you conform your beliefs to the Bible or the Bible to your beliefs????
Srsly, between these guys and prosperity gospel preachers, those third world infants really need to get with the picture!!
(Note; I’m not saying you shouldn’t eat healthy, I’m just saying it’s not spiritually necessary)
