I was looking around the internet looking for some Christian weight loss tips and I came across some sites that asked: What Would Jesus Eat? I do not know about you, but personally I find it a little strange. What do you think?
Do you really think that you ask “What Would Jesus Eat?” Before taking a bite of something that will be big enough deterrent to keep you away from foods that are not supposed to be good for You?
Shakespeare said, “There is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Paul said something similar when he said, “Everything is allowed me, but all things are not expedient. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any ” 1 Corinthians 6:12
We can see from what Paul says that although not everything is good for me, it does not mean that it is a sin to eat certain things. He also spoke of meat sacrificed to idols and said it does not matter really. If your conscience is clear then eat what you want, but for the good of others perhaps you should refrain from eating if it offends your brother.
asked “What would Jesus eat?” Is kind of irrelevant. Unless we want to be like the Pharisees and start judging people on what they consume so the question is dumb.
If we look at the life of Christ, we see that he associated with pagans and sinners. The Pharisees do not like this because they thought it was wrong. Jesus was in his day eat mainly fish and bread and leeks and garlic, probably more of a Mediterranean diet that we consume, but that is only because he lived in this area. If he lived in America pensez- you think it would itself dying of hunger because we eat a different type of food the Jews ate? If Jesus was here, in this day and age, and he sat among the pagans and sinners, think -you he would refuse to eat a fry with them?
I think we have enough people trying to blame the Christians for what they do without having to feel guilty what they eat. Jesus would never condemn us for what we eat. Just judge the Pharisees, not the Christ.
If we allow the Holy Spirit to guide and teach us about Christ’s love for us, we will put our body in balance without guilt trips so called “Christians” who want we feel conviction. [It is] “therefore now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8: 1)
Weight Loss Christan should not be just another way of making Christians feel guilty about what they eat. No, Christian weight loss is about people realize what they are in Christ and allowing the Holy Spirit to work in their lives so they realize how much they are truly loved by God. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth and will do its job if we allow it to.
The Holy Spirit will lead us to Righteoussness, so do not let people who want to play Pharisee tell you what you should and should not eat. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you in all things, and remember that God loves you just the way you are. He will not love you no more or less if you lose weight. Losing weight is something that will come on its own that you realize who you are in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit will guide you into a healthy diet, but not the conviction.
Stop listening Pharisees and start listening to your inner guidance of the Holy Spirit. “Your ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This [is] ye way, walk in it, when ye turn to the right, and when ye turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21
