The History of Gluttony




 

Published on Dec 7, 2014
Though not entirely Biblical... yet an interesting look into the History of Gluttony.

The seven deadly sins are a list originally used in early Christian teachings to educate and instruct followers concerning fallen man's tendency to sin. The misconception about the list of seven “deadly” sins is that they are sins that God will not forgive. The Bible is clear that the only sin God will not forgive is that of continued unbelief, because it rejects the only means to
obtain forgiveness—Jesus Christ and His substitutionary death on the cross.
Is the idea of seven deadly sins biblical? Yes and no. Proverbs 6:16-19 declares, “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: 1) haughty eyes, 2) a lying tongue, 3) hands that shed innocent blood, 4) a heart that devises wicked schemes, 5) feet that are quick to rush into evil, 6) a false witness who pours out lies, and 7) a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.” However, this list is not what most people understand as the seven deadly sins.

According to Pope Gregory the Great in the 6th century, the seven deadly sins are as follows: pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, and sloth. Although these are undeniably sins, they are never given the description of "the seven deadly sins" in the Bible. The traditional list of seven deadly sins can function as a good way to categorize the many different sins that exist.
Nearly every kind of sin could be placed under one of the seven categories. More importantly, we must realize these seven sins are no more “deadly” than any other sin. All sin results in
death (Romans 6:23). Praise be to God, that through Jesus Christ, all of our sins, including the “seven deadly sins,” can be forgiven (Matthew 26:28; Acts 10:43; Ephesians 1:7).



 
 

 

Evidence for extraterrestrial visitation



Dr. Robert Wood - "I came to the conclusion that the evidence for extraterrestrial visitation
was just overwhelming, I mean almost so large that you don´t even have to discuss it."
Dr. Robert Wood has a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of
Colorado, and a Ph.D. in physics from cornell.
Dr. Wood worked in a senior capacity as an aerospace engineer at McDonnell Douglas for his
entire 43-year career. In his testimony, he states that he was involved in a specific project at
McDonnell Douglas to study the propulsion systems of UFOs. In addition, he confirms the
existence of other projects within the aerospace industry, and gives his assessment of the fact
that this subject is not only real, but is of extraterrestrial nature. He also confirms the
extreme secrecy surrounding the subject.
Dr. Robert Wood - "I concluded that there was just no question about what they were... they
were genuine real objects."
