If gluttony is a sin, than obesity would also be a sin

europe-vs-america

Fellow Christian Warriors and NOT ! I am sharing a message of concern and hope about personal health and obesity. It is a national and international problem and awareness needs to be the order of the day for all on this topic. It is open for discussion and I encourage you to do so and get involved. Below you will find a short banter between a fellow Christian Warrior, Sister Adrianne Kendell and myself. With several links for you to explore on the topic of what I am calling the Sin of Gluttony in Human Behavior… (+)

It all starts with this comment from Bishop Kinney Townsend.

I hear the spirit of the Lord saying to the PRAYER WARRIORS ….Its time to get in physical shape so we can be as the prophet ISAIAH said ….THEY SHALL RUN AND NOT BE WEARY… THEY SHALL WALK AND NOT FAINT….
BALANCE IS A MUST…. you must strengthen the Natural Man because HE CARRIES THE SPIRIT MAN…. IF YOU CAN’T RESIST A BURGER… YOU CAN’T RESIST A devil…. let us attack the spirit of OBESITY THAT HAS TAKEN THE BODY OF CHRIST HOSTAGE……LORD HELP US TO EAT TO LIVE AND NOT LIVE TO EAT….SHALOM!!

Adrianne Kendell – People think it’s a Game, but He is not realizing that one of the GREATEST areas where the WARFARE will be is IN the FOOD!!!!!!! OBESITY IS KILLING FOLKS. Left and right…..!!!

Archbishop Andrew Manley – One of the “seven deadly sins” is “gluttony “, which would entail over eating as part of the definition. It is most likely one sin that is most overlooked by mankind today. Do to the social climate for which we all live. Awareness and Action are required. Along with a willingness to change personal habits by seeking help to over come this trait of human behavior. So your right, Sister Adrianne Kendell in your statement. However are people in society today willing to change to this awareness and make the tough choice to do so? That is yet for them and God to know and to influence. It may come from comments like the ones posted here or by loving people around those individuals through intervention. Either way the process has to start and people have to take notice and get involved for the sake of all mankind. Gluttony is a sin so that would make obesity a sin as well. For the human body is the temple and home to God the Father in every human being and it needs to be attended to quickly… Bless you all and bless you Sister for posting this topic for discussion… Sincerely IHS and yours, Ab. Manley (+)

Adrianne Kendell – Archbishop. Awareness is FIRST indeed. I promise you that the LORD has mandated me to teach others HOW TO GET FREE!! Www.bodyandsoulnow.com.

THE DECISION TO MAKE A CHANGE IS MOST IMPORTANT. I have been there. I have struggled with it. And the SOLUTION is TOTAL mind renewal.

Thy Holy Writ

addiction_relapse_warning_signs

1st Thessalonians, chapter 5 verses 5 -10 (NKJV)

5) You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
6) Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
7) For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.
8) But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
9) For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
10) who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

An organization called the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism post this guideline on their public website and I quoted it here.

” If you are like many Americans, you drink alcohol at least occasionally. For many people, moderate drinking is probably safe. It may even have health benefits, including reducing your risk of certain heart problems. Moderate drinking is one drink a day for women or anyone over 65, and two drinks a day for men under 65.

Some people should not drink at all, including alcoholics, children, pregnant women, people on certain medicines and people with some medical conditions. If you have questions about whether it is safe for you to drink, speak with your healthcare provider.

Anything more than moderate drinking can be risky. Binge drinking – drinking five or more drinks at one time – can damage your health and increase your risk for accidents, injuries and assault. Years of heavy drinking can lead to liver disease, heart disease, cancer and pancreatitis. It can also cause problems at home, at work and with friends.”

There is more on their website to explore and it is a great place for factual information to get help if you or someone you know needs help with this very serious issue. You can find them at this website: www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/alcohol.htm.

However, here locally in downtown Lorain, Ohio our ministry supports an alcohol and drug abuse group program called the Celtic Cross Chapter of A. A. The group meets this evening and every Thursday evening at 8:00 pm (EST) in the Cafeteria at the Lake View Plaza High Rise Apartment Building, located at 310 West 7th Street and Reid Ave. It is classified as an open meeting, so anyone can come. It is run by Deacon Arlen Glispy Jr. better known as Deacon AJ. There is plenty of parking and refreshments available for those that attend. The Group Motto is: ” A community of individuals helping individuals in our community”. Worth noting here is that it is every type of addiction problem that they aid folks with. Not just alcohol. Family, friends or someone who cares, can get the support they need to make a positive difference in someone’s life. Even if that life is your own. So come and let a community of individuals help you in our community.

Have a blessed day folks…
Bp. Andrew R. M. Manley DD., O.S.A., O.S.P.
