The U.S. government cares about what you eat. The U.S. government does not care about who you sex. God cares about who you sex. God does not care about what you eat.
This bothers some people. They’re like, “Jimmy, don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?”
Yeah, I do know that. That is why I did not engage in premarital sex, nor do I commit adultery.
But I do eat Big Macs and smoke.
Right now, some people are like, “Jimmy, if your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, why are you eating a Big Mac? Why are you smoking a Marlboro?”
You know what? You need to read your Bible. Back in the day, over in Jerusalem, the Temple was filled with incense. Incense is burning leaves. How is that different than a Marlboro? And in that temple, they sacrificed bulls, and waved the fattest portion in front of the altar. They cooked it, and the priests ate some, along with Bread of the Presence. How is that different than a Big Mac? Besides the fact that the Big Mac has cheese.
God doesn’t care about what you eat. God cares about who you have sex with. Some people are like, “Jimmy, if you’re just going to twist around the words of the Bible, twist around the words of the Bible!”
Have you read it? Would you like to? Let’s see what the Bible says on page 818.
“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
It’s all there. Black and white. That verse is about sex. It is not about food or cigarettes!
