    Do you do that? If not, repent.

    Why limit it to eating pizza and drinking Pepsi? How about preaching, singing, and posting on the BB?

    True, but how many people get a Pepsi from the vending machine or order a pizza and do it for God's glory?

    I think there is an unhealthy division between the so-called Spiritual activities and the so-called earthly activities. It is all spiritual.

    Titus 1:15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. (KJV)

    As a Christian, everything I do for the Lord is a spiritual work. Mowing the church yard is every bit a spiritual work as preaching. Spending time with my family is every bit as spiritual as soulwinning. Not that any of these should be left undone, but we often have a warped view of what a "spiritual work" really is.

    I make pizza for my family every friday night and I do believe it glorifies the Lord. As for Pepsi, it is funny you should ask, because pepsi is won of my favorite things on earth. I thank God daily for this wonderful suger water, though like many other things, some moderation is in order to keep it healthy.

    Pepsi for those who think young? I don't think Britney Spears sends a very Christian message do you?If I am going to have a soda...and that's a rare treat, I think I'll stick with the original... Coca Cola...why drink an imitation.

    When I read this topic I thought for sure you were going to say Pepsi and Snicker Bars...because that's my church's snack of choice... It's what those skinny Pastors and thier wives live on when they are too busy to eat a real meal because they are out knocking on doors, and sharing the gospel.

    As for me... I stick to water and pulse...just like Daniel. ;)

    Believe me, last week, the vending machine wouldn't take my dollar, and I was in dire need of a Pepsi. I was finally able to find a dollar that worked, and when I was finally able to get that Pepsi into my hands, the first words out of my mouth were "Thank you, Lord!!"

    Today I went on a fire call--hot, extremely hot! House fire! No body home at the time! Hot! Turn out gear was hot!! Helmet was hot! Sweated like I was "haulin' Pulpwood!!" We finished attackin' the fire, stomped the last flame out with my fire boot--rolled up the hoses at the station--and I was ready to chug-a-lug anything the other fighters would throw at me--that is, anything else but alcoholic beverage!!

    Your friend,
    Blackbird

    Pepsi?!?!?!

    Isaiah 1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

    Any good Christian knows it's Dr. Pepper all the way!!!!! Bow down now, and repent, ye drinkers of iniquity, of corruption!

    Great topic, PTW. Very timely in this age of obesity and self-indulgence.

    Adam, not sure I can tell what the point of this thread is either.
    Is it from the bible verse(can't remember where it is), whether you eat or drink ,in all that you do, do it to the glory of the Lord?(I know I probably did quote it exact). But is that it?

    Glorifying God in what you eat and drink is more then over eating, and all obese people don't over eat.
    Glorifying God in your eating also means you are careful about what you put in your body. Like candy bars, and other junk foods.

    Our grace at mealtimes is always different, but has the same ending: "...and please bless this food to your use and glory through our bodies."

    That includes Pepsis and pizzas... :D

    All food is clean. That isn't the issue. The issue in my post, which I think is related to the verse and beginning post, is that no kind of self-indulgence is glorifying to God.

    Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

    That is the point of the thread. Our activities should be done with this goal. That would include such simple things as drinking Pepsi and eating pizza.

    Have you ever took a can of Pepsi and asked yourself how you could glorify God? Just some thinking on paper...
