Why Aren’t Food Issues Talked About in Church?

February 15, 2012

“I often hear pornography discussed from the pulpit on Sundays. It seems that in the last few years there has been a lot of attention given to this private struggle, which rages in the minds of lots of Christians, especially men. But I never hear food issues discussed, unless it’s to make jokes about “loving fried chicken” or to remind people about the upcoming church “food, fun and fellowship” night. But isn’t gluttony just as bad as any other sin? Why don’t we talk about this in church?”
