America has grown fat, and the sin of gluttony plays a part in it. Obesity is dangerous physically, but it also has a spiritual side.
In the West, both food and information are readily available. We need self-control and a dedication to truth in order to live a godly life.
Human nature takes chances, assuming the day of reckoning will come later, not sooner. We cannot ignore truth or God's laws without paying a horrific price.
The attitudes of II Timothy 3:1-5 are rampant now and should give us the urgent incentive to repent and overcome, preparing for Jesus Christ's return.
