Obesity is not 'gluttony' "genius".
In most cases, it is indeed cause by gluttony. If you eat far more than you need for reasons other than hunger, you are a glutton by definition.

Definition of GLUTTONY

1
: excess in eating or drinking
2
: greedy or excessive indulgence

You know, there's plenty of reasons we as Christians are charged with not judging one another, not the least of these reasons is that it is proof that we have lost sight of our own shortcomings.

Judge not, lest ye be judged.

Just because downing a quart of wine is part of your daily consumption Godsmacked, doesn't mean it is something everyone else does. Anyway, I thought you were on the wagon you old lush?

Gluttony is a cause of obesity you dipstick. Perhaps you are an obese overweight fundie feeling guilty about his gluttony, which is why you got rattled when the subject was raised!

But you can't tell at a distance what is rotten and what is not. Only the Father can accurately do that, since the Father sees into souls and you cannot.

You don't trust God to know? You don't trust Him to lead? You don't trust him to have a plan for us all?

Pull the plank from your eye, Dear.

It's simple. In our country we are free to practice religion, or not, as we chose. At least, right up until such time as our personal beliefs start to intimidate and harm people with other beliefs, or people with no belief at all.

That's how a free society works.

Do you believe the Bible is God's word?
