Words of Comfort: The Joy of Fast Food

I love fast-food. It’s convenient, smells good, looks good, and tastes good. What’s more, it gives almost instant pleasure to the taste buds. But fast-food is killing millions in this country because for them it’s not just a once a week treat, they live on it. Over population isn’t the problem. Over indulgence is, and American obesity is becoming so big it will push us all into the sea. It has become America’s number one health problem: “Nearly two-thirds of American adults are either overweight or obese. Childhood obesity is triple what it was a generation ago. Together, they add up to a public health crisis that feeds a $60 billion industry of products, services, diets and foods designed to help people lose weight.” [1]

Sin is like fast-food. The mere hint of a lustful thought causes the sinful heart to salivate. One sexual image in the mind can explode into a ferocious appetite that will eventually overtake the human will and be the death of us. Lust brings forth sin, and sin when it’s finished brings with it death, and death ushers those in their sins into damnation in a terrible place called Hell. There is a way out of obesity, but there will be no way out of Hell.
