Default Root Out The Lies!

You got that right buddy! Gluttony is the cause of obesity. These morons we have for leaders today, who are unfit to rule and that can be backed up Biblically, got us all running down dead ends. It doesn't surprise me; you plant wicked leaders, you get wicked leadership. What do the wicked do; they lie! They are gonna tell you, it's a disease that makes you fat and give the make believe disease a fancy name, like, "eating disorder." Then they scramble around looking for all kinds of causes: body chemical, brain chemicals, rape, abuse, advertising, sugar, etc, etc. The one thing they never tell you is, your fear, shame and guilt stirs up your pride and you sin. In this case, you turn to gluttony. You could of just as easily chosen wrath, sloth, lust, greed or envy. Sure, eat one doughnut and it is hard to not eat another (that's called self-control), but you are not going to be strong enough to resist temptation, if you keep trying to resolve your emotions with what The World keeps offering you (a different sacrifice and saviour, than the one God gave us). Ultimately, that is the only effective way for us to deal with our emotions and if we scorn it, then our emotions will drive us to sin. That's why you see people get off one kick and get onto another.

Its strange how in the 80s & 90s the national crisis was people not eating enough in order to look thin which manifested itself partially as bulimia & anorexia.
So the pendulum has swung and everything is excused as a disorder / social problem
or a threat to national security.
Congress has a gluttonous all you can spend buffet for the government so what we really need
is a task force on social & government denial ! ! !

That seems like Greed But, I guess that's sort of like gluttony for money.

Those girls who starve themselves, seem to be making a sacrifice out of themselves, instead of turning to The Eucharist (The Body and Blood of Christ).
