Everyone goes thru the chip isle and probably the cookies isle. There is also some food good for you but they don't do much for the taste buds.
Oh, I just found that passage in the bible that man has to eat more than bread. It's in Luke 4:4 and Jesus answered him, "It is written, One must not live on bread alone, but on every word of God." I didn't notice that second part that says on every word of God.
You know there are many junk foods but how about the word of God. It seems whatever itches someone's ear today. they select like their selecting junk food at the grocery store. As a matter of fact Paul said in II Timothy 4:3, " For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear." It sounds like the junk food tickling our taste buds.
Where we have junk food that tickles our taste buds with junk food we have cult religions that make our ears itch and feel good. We can go into the religion store and what itches our ears the most we will select. Who cares if our religion we take off the shelf if it makes our itchy ears feel real good.
Look at some of those itchy ear religions. One of those major cults is the Jehovah Witnesses. They deny the deity of Jesus and don't even recognize the personhood of the Holy Ghost. They even said that Jesus only appeared on the cross and he was only there in spirit. He never felt pain.
Then there are the Mormons who say Jesus and Satan were brothers. They never tell you who Satan's mother was. They will tell you that God and Mary had physical sex. Of course they deny the Holy ghost.
There is the Joel Osteen cult. He says he doesn't talk about sin. He never discusses repentance which is the reason Christ became flesh in the first. He came to be the perfect human sacrifice required to forgive men sins.
Then there is a new cult called the prosperity cult. They have added something new to make their religion even more entertaining. After Jesus died he descended into hell and had to physically fight Satan to win our salvation. After this fight Jesus became born again. Who are these people?
Their leader is undoubtedly Kenneth Copeland. Copeland said Jesus talked to him and told him, "They crucified me for claiming that I was God. I didn't claim I was God; I just claimed that I walked with him and that he was in me."
Another big time follower in this network is Joyce Meyer. When asked about her large amount of wealth she said she deserved every cent she earned. Of course that was Jesus who earned that money for her.
Then there is the showman himself Benny Hinn. One of his former workers said Hinn came back and told them to look at this. I got this old lady's last five dollars.It has also been reported that five sick people died awaiting Benny Hinn to come and heal them.
There's Fred Price who brags about all the cars he has. There's Creflo Dollar and I doubt he was born with the last name dollar.
We need to not only worry today about junk food but also junk religions.
