VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Evil Workers mentions eating

a. Eaten came from Greek word "fago" which is a verb meaning to eat

1. The Word of GOD benefits us if we are a doer and not just a listener. - the problem with evil workers is they do eat without faith.

Romans 14:23 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning.

2. Eating or not will not make us dirty.

Titus 1:15 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted.

3. Without faith it's impossible to please GOD.

Hebrews 11:6 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

B. Evil workers mentions drinking

1. Drunk or drinking came from Greek word: "pino-pio-poo" meaning to drink (verb)

2. Because food and drink make us worry. (Matthew 6:25)

Matthew 6:25 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?

3. Prioritize GOD's Rule in our hearts (GOD's Presence) and not food and drink. (Matthew 6:33)

Matthew 6:33 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

4. The people are eating perishable food and drink

Matthew 24:38 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.

5. Eternal life is our priority here on earth not food and drink (John 6:26-27)

John 6:26-27 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, you want to be with me because I fed you, not because you understood the miraculous signs.
