VEGETARIAN = SPIRITUAL?


You know, people imagine all sorts of things as spiritual. Did you read that article in the paper recently about the people who are the raw food enthusiasts? It was about a small group of people who are vegetarians, with a twist – everything they eat is uncooked, raw. I found it an interesting read, and then was fascinated by one of the people in the article who claimed that eating only raw food was a spiritual experience, that eating raw food somehow made her more spiritual.


Really?


How do we know that this woman even knows what a spiritual experience is? How do we judge her statement as true or delusional? Well, is that what Scripture teaches? In Matthew 15 Jesus explains that food does not make us spiritual and Acts 10 we see Peter have a vision telling him that all foods are ok to eat – eating one kind of food will not make you spiritual and another make you less spiritual. So this woman eats raw food and imagines that she is feeding her soul – is she spiritually perceptive, or simply ignorant? Food has no effect on our spirituality – spirituality is not based upon food intake, it is based upon relationship, specifically a relationship with Jesus Christ.
