Jesus Christ said, “It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer.”

The Acceptable Christian Sin of Gluttony #50


TEXT: Numbers 11:31-34

31 And there went forth a wind from the Lord, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day’s journey on this side, and as it were a day’s journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth.

32 And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp.

33 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the Lord was kindled against the people, and the Lord smote the people with a very great plague.

34 And he called the name of that place Kibroth-hattaa-vah: because there they buried the people that lusted.

REGARDING INTERMITTENT FASTING:

James Clear, author of “The Quick Start Guide to Intermittent Fasting,” writes, “Intermittent fasting helps you live longer. Scientists have long known that restricting calories is a way of lengthening life. From a logical standpoint, this makes sense. When you’re starving, your body finds ways to extend your life. There’s just one problem: who wants to starve themselves in the name of living longer? I don’t know about you, but I’m interested in enjoying a long life. Starving myself doesn’t sound that appetizing. The good news is that intermittent fasting activates many of the same mechanisms for extending life as calorie restriction. In other words, you get the benefits of a longer life without the hassle of starving.”
