My pastor said something the other day. He said the question isn't how fat is too fat or how many drinks is too many... the question is, "Is my behavior glorifying God?" I thought that was a pretty good statement. I was glad he didn't say "don't be fat" and "don't drink more then X drinks". Some people are a little bigger then others, so there is no need to define *exactly* what "fat" means (or how many drinks is too much... since different size people can drink more then others without sinning and being drunk). As an aside... I especially was afraid he might say don't drink at all because it is a southern baptist church, and the convention recently released that resolution in "total opposition" to alcohol consumption. I'm glad my pastor apparently does not buy into that un-biblical position. (not to say one personally can not oppose it, but to push such a legalistic statement on the entire Body that is not clear in any way in the Scriptures is just wrong) Anyway, sorry, there is a question coming... don't worry! I imagine there are some people on this board very familiar with Jerry Falwell. Does anyone know if he ever preached about gluttony? (I'm sure he preached against alcohol given what my friends have told me about Liberty U.'s policies). I'm just curious, because he was a large man. I'm not trying to be insulting. And I'm not saying he was a glutton. But overeating is one of the largest causes of obesity and heart attack in America. I'm just seriously wondering what, if anything, he ever preached to others on the subject. Proverbs 28:7 declares, "He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father." Proverbs 23:2 proclaims, "put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony."
