At my first glance to an article "Is gluttony one of the seven deadly sins?" I thought, incorrectly, that it was listed in Proverbs 6. Wow! I was wrong! Proverbs 6:16-19 KJVA (16) "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: (17) A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, (18) An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, (19) A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." From the Indianapolis Prime Times, News and Views for People over 50, a monthly free newspaper that I found at the supermarket store. From this I found the article "Is gluttony one of the seven deadly sins?" The Bible does talk about eating many times in the Bible and I cannot list them all. I am just a layman. Back to my question: "Is over eating a sin?" As an American and I am limited to my cultural experience, I see many times and places where a person can over eat, in a fast food place, in a home, in a church pitch-in or pot luck supper, in certain holidays such as the American Thannksgiving dinner. Yet some people practice fasting. I have not done that (yet). I am interested in what you think and write back. Maybe we can all learn from each other. Thanks, Mr. Messy.
