TEXT: Genesis 3:1-6
This is an uncomfortable subject for many of us, but if you listen and take heed, this particular series can not only change your life spiritually, but it can save your life physically.
According to Bible Study Tools, "Gluttony is a sin that many Christians find easy to laugh about and accept as harmless while sins such as being a drunkard or adulterer are quickly dealt with. The sin of gluttony is idolatry -- it is a choice of self-love, comfort, and control through food."
In this, our tenth message on the topic of gluttony, I want to pause to make something clear: Food is not the enemy. Eating is not the enemy. And enjoying your meals is not wrong. We must guard against such thoughts because the devil specializes in taking people to extremes, mentally-speaking. Right now, he has many of us at the extreme of gluttony. If he can’t keep us here, he will try to take us to the opposite extreme where we hate food, hate our bodies, and hate the fact that we have to eat to live. That is how many people become anorexic and bulimic.
