We’re health-crazed in California


Thank you gluttony_by_angiheartsconverses

But we don’t worry about what we ingest spiritually. We don’t worry to take in God’s word, praise or prayer. We consume vast amounts of internet dross, TV junk food, music bile. And it’s killing us spiritually. Virtually no one is attuned to the damage done.

But we are intensely aware of damage done to the body. We work out at the gym incessantly. The contrast alarms me.

  1. Great point!! It’s one of the major themes of my blog! Thank you for the great picture which really brings home the point! Great post,

  2. Absolutely. And the more you seek after the things of God the more apparent these things can seem… and that discernment becomes more clear. That’s why spiritual health is so important in holistic and overall health and it is sad people live only to improve the flesh. Seeking spiritual gifts and strength ought to be number one, but we get caught up, don’t we? God loves us mind, body and spirit.

  3. Amen! God be praised for sounding such alarms!!! Blessings….

  5. Big fat” right on” to ya bro. Well said!

  6. The Scriptures agree,

    “Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them” (Heb 13.9).

    “For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come” (1Ti 4.8).

    “Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man” (Matt 15.17, 18).

    I agree with Ellie, that the picture really helps to make the point!

    Our society is so focused on what is seen and not on what is eternal. The challenge is for us, as Christians, to show the world the difference by how we live our lives.

  8. My sister lives in the San Francisco area and I see that kind of influence in her life. So true.

  9. Yes, people are more concerned about the temporal instead of the eternal.

  10. Eat to His Glory

    So very true! And when we have spiritual health, we have physical health
