GOD gives his people peace.”
Psalm 29:11, MSG

Definition: Gluttony is the willful and insatiable desire to over consume, excessively elevate, and be preoccupied with that which God created for good. It is more interested in consuming than in what is being consumed.
Dr. Neal Plantinga, Calvin Theological Seminary

Don't drink too much wine and get drunk;
don't eat too much food and get fat.
Drunks and gluttons will end up on skid row,
in a stupor and dressed in rags.
Proverbs 23:20-21, MSG

“For it is possible that a wise man may use the daintiest food without any sin of epicurism or gluttony, while a fool will crave for the vilest food with a most disgusting eagerness of appetite. And any sane man would prefer eating fish after the manner of our Lord, to eating lentils after the manner of Esau, or barley after the manner of oxen. For there are several beasts that feed on commoner kinds of food, but it does not follow that they are more temperate than we are. For in all matters of this kind it is not the nature of the things we use, but our reason for using them, and our manner of seeking them, that make what we do either praiseworthy or blameable.”
St.Augustine, Confessions

“I fear not the uncleaness of meat,
but the uncleaness of desire.”
St. Augustine, Confessions

“The spirit is willing, but the body is weak”
Jesus in Matthew 26:41, NIV

“Jesus said, "I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever.”
John 6:35, MSG

I think America has a problem with gluttony, and I am sorry but those who cannot control the pie hole as far as pies seem most likely to sell a sibling, child to Moloch, Marduk, whatever, just for another taco, kid, cakie, cookie, coin, castle,'s their greed, self-delusion.
