The United States government cares about what you eat. The United States government does not care about who you have sex with. God cares about who you have sex with. God does not care about what you eat.
This may be shocking for some people to hear. But today’s high school kids know this all too well. They’re revolting against the restrictive meal plans imposed by the United States government.
I predicted this.
These kids in high school are taught abstinence from food. They are not taught abstinence from premarital sex.
How long have people been saying that you can’t legislate morality?
Well ask high school kids if they are suffering under a legislated form of morality which revolves around the food they eat.
A lot of high school kids are probably wondering why. Why do they have to suffer in this way? Well, kids, I’m sorry that it had to be this way. The reason is that our society rejected God. And this is what happens to a society that rejects God. God gives them over to a powerful delusion.
You know these raisins and bananas and carrot sticks you’re expected to eat? The reason behind this, ostensibly, is that you need to eat fewer calories. But this might not make sense. The calorie is a unit of energy. If you do more stuff and expend more energy, you need to replace it. We’re not striving to be skeletons, are we? School’s not a concentration camp.
But this is the power of the delusion that people believe when they reject God and claim that science is their new source of wisdom. I want high school kids all across America to know that this “wisdom”, this morality that revolves around food, is not from the Bible. The Bible says, “The kingdom of heaven is not a matter of eating and drinking.”
Food is irrelevant to our relationship with God. I mean, food is stuff you just put in your mouth, mash up, and send down the hatch. The reason why America is agonizing over food is because they strayed away from God.
I would invite all high school kids to turn their hearts to God. You could be the generation that reclaimed faith and brought it back into practice. It’s as easy as opening up the Bible and reading it. That was a real turning point in my life, when I started reading the Bible and applying it to my life. I did that when I was around 14. High school kids all over America can do that now too. And you’ll learn that the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, and you can eat whatever food you want, so long as you’re thankful for it.
Food’s just food. God already put in place something to let you know when you need more food. It’s called hunger. And food tastes good, and the foods that you want to eat are the foods that your body needs. This whole idea that the foods you like are bad for you, and the foods you don’t like are good for you, stems from people feeling really guilty and wanting to punish themselves.
But you don’t have to be that way. The gospel of Jesus Christ is all about the washing away of sin, so you don’t have to live with guilt. You can truly enjoy food for the first time. Especially communion food.
