    I agree. Some people conflate being fat with gluttony but how fat a person is does not show how out of control their eating habits might be. A person with a hyperactive thyroid can be a terrible glutton and never gain a pound of weight.

    Hi MrMoe. What came to mind for me, is the question if gluttony is listed in the seven things God abhors? In addition, a Biblical definition of gluttony and what it entails, including the attitude of the heart, would be an excellent study.

    God bless you and your family, my friend.

    It's massively overlooked, partly I think because it's so prevalent in so many churches. It really is the sin everyone seems to want to pretend isn't there. It's doing damage too, non believers spot the hypocrisy in chastising other 'popular' sins whilst being a real glutton.
    I remember once being scowled at for ordering a small bottle of beer at a church social event at a restaurant. The person that scowled proceeded to order half the menu ! LOL.

    I'm going to be bold here and say that that car should have been cleaned if giving it to someone else (and by cleaned, I mean pick the rubbish up and put it in a bin so that someone else doesn't have to sit in amongst your litter). Sounds lazy. How many seconds does it take to pick up some wrappers ?

    I know that sounds harsh, but I'm fed up with people that claim they're too busy to clean up after themselves, or treat their blessings (a car or truck) like a rubbish bin. I know a few like that.

    And that's all aside from the health issues related. How is he going to be a blessing to others if he has a self inflicted heart attack and dies ? Sorry, I'm having a real go at your Pastor, LOL.

    Chemically. Eating and burning carbohydrates in your body. Is very similar To burning hydrocarbons in your car

    would anybody like to go to the gas station? Spend some time there. Buy some extra gas. Fill up the tank and then keep on filling up some jerrycans and put them in the trunk and keep on filling up more jerrycans and put them in the back seat. And so on. wouldn't it be so much fun to spend time and money at the gas station??

    If not, then chemically speaking. Neither should you want to spend your time and money. Eating food at the restaurant or dinner table.

    Maybe this language isn't for everyone. Maybe this language will only resonate with those more inclined towards science and. Technical field. But telling myself this. Helps me so far. To avoid overheating. In my mind, I compare spending more time to eat more expensive food. 2. Going to the gas station and spending more time and money. On gasoline fuel

    And if that's not a good idea, then neither is over eating.

    Technically, true and helps. My outlook. Maybe will help others also.
