Temple of God

Sunday night at our Christmas party with rush church, I was sharing with an individual that sin is sin. There is no big or small sin. For example, the Pastor who has lust for women is no worse than the Sunday school teacher who gossips at every change she gets. Sin is ugly and we all have it. What we don't realize is that for years we have listened to messages in church that tell us that our bodies are the temple of God and we are to do nothing to destroy the temple. (examples usually are smoking, drinking, doing drugs). What we do not hear is how over eating can also be included in that list. Obesity can lead to type 2 diabetes, Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), Hypertension ( high blood pressure), heart attacks and strokes due to the above listed problems, joint pain, venous insufficency (poor blood flow to the lower legs), the list could go on and on. We need to take an active rule in our health to obey God's command and take care of the temple of God.
