When it comes to comfort food, about the only
thing I like better than ice cream is pasta. I make a
pretty mean spaghetti sauce, and enjoy all kinds of
pasta, linguine, lasagna, rigatoni, etc. Nevertheless,
I have always been slightly suspicious of Anti-Pasta.
Growing up I went from eating copious amounts of Momís
homemade Mac & Cheese, to perfecting my own secret recipe
for spaghetti sauce. As I expanded my skills and repertoire,
I stumbled across a strange term in Italian cooking called
I intuitively knew that this strange new dish called
Anti-Pasta didnít contain any pasta, which in my view was
nothing short of sacrilege, even though I didnít exactly
know anything about Anti-Pasta.
Ironically in my spiritual journey, I have come across a
similar term called Anti-Christ. Intuitively I understood
that it meant "against Jesus." As I matured in my Christian
faith, I have started to see the spirit of Anti-Pasta in the
world around me. Like most traditional foods there is more
than one recipe for Anti-Pasta, and the same could be said
for the recipe for Anti-Christ.
The original reference to the spirit of Anti-Christ can be
found in 1 John 2:18-29, where the Apostle identifies several
types of Anti-Christís. Unfortunately, the spirit of Anti-Christ
is still alive and well. There are plenty of examples in the
world around us. People and organizations that attack
Christian ideals and values through movies, music and books,
continually under mining the faith of people through doubt
The spirit of Anti-Christ can also be seen in the pseudo
spirituality that the world offers, and good causes that
people get involved in while trying to find a substitute
Life is kind of like going into your favorite Italian eatery
and ordering a big plate of the good stuff, only to have the
server bring you a big dish of marinated something- or-nother
that you didnít remember ordering.
So remember -
Beware of the Spirit of Anti-Pasta!!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
