Practice what you preach. A lot of people are wondering if I practice what I preach.
Well what am I preaching? I’m going around preaching that God has given you the freedom to eat whatever you want. So the question is, Do I eat whatever I want?
The answer is a resounding YES.
I have the discipline to eat whatever I want. I never go into a restaurant and think, “Hm, what should I eat?” That thought doesn’t even enter my head.
The Bible says that all the food that God has made is good to eat. You just need to give thanks to God. (Bible, page 852)
That’s what the Bible says! If you don’t like that message, then burn all your Bibles, okay? I didn’t write it, I just read it and report it. And I eat it. I practice what I preach.
If you think that eggs are from the devil, you need to keep that to yourself. Don’t go around telling other people what foods you think are bad, and what food you think are good. The Bible says that too. It says that whatever you think about food in your heart, keep it between you and God. “Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves.” (Bible, page 621)
Eggs come from chickens. They don’t come from the devil. If you think they come from the devil, think that to yourself. At the next church potluck dinner, don’t write “Deviled Eggs.” Just write, “Eggs with Paprika.”
Some people are like, “Jimmy, you don’t quite practice what you just preached as far as not telling other people what to eat.”
Well, for the most part, I do. For the most part, I don’t tell other people what to eat, or make fun of all the stupid health food they eat. Last night at Raunstock, I was making fun of Rob for the fact that he had margarine and not butter. The thing is, I know Rob, and Rob knows me. I think he can handle the fact of being mocked for having margarine. Really, who has margarine instead of butter, besides Rob? Wake up! Have you ever tasted butter? Butter tastes good.
Anyways, right now I’m thirsty. I saw this poster at work that said, you have to take your body weight and divide it half. That’s how many ounces of water you need to drink per day. That’s ridiculous. That would mean I’d have to drink 150 ounces of water. Every day. How many do I drink? I don’t know. I drink water when I’m thirsty. I don’t need a poster at work to tell me that.
