For those of us who struggle with overeating, we’re not able to deal with it as the sin of gluttony, because we don’t look at it that way. We call it a problem, but we’re very hesitant to call it sin. And in our society today we really don’t call anything sin anymore, because it makes things like that more palatable to us, changing them from what God calls them. Pastor Ford will help us re-evaluate our view of overeating and suggest some practical ways to overcome it.
