The GLUTTONY victim was forced to lie face down in food while he ate continuously, as in the Third Circle of Hell where those guilty of Gluttony are forced to lie face down in mud, in continuous cold rain while eating their own excrement.
Food. I fucking love food. As much as I love food though, gluttony will never be something that will cause me to go to hell. Now the other 6 sins? Heh.
Food…Hmm…Maybe the reason I’m not overindulging comes from the fact that Ramadan is a part of my religion and I’ve been fasting for one month a year since I was 10. Or maybe it’s because I ate all the junk food in middle school & was a little chubby but still cute…OR maybe it’s because I had an eating disorder twice in my life.
Maybe it’s simply because I know that once my body says “STOP”…I stop eating. It’s about self-control, which is the root of a lot of problems in today’s society. Overindulgence. Focusing on the physical desires & forgetting the reality of life…the deeper meanings of everyday happenings around us.
We’re also a society of BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER (But only at the drive through, not on the treadmill).
Super size me! No no, large fries aren’t enough. GIVE ME MORE! My body can’t take anymore but that’s OK…I’ll force it down & burp it out with my extra soda! Everyone’s doing it! Come on…It’s there. So why not?
Because we don’t pay attention to our own body, we also forget about our children. Did you know that between 16 and 33% of our children and teens are obese? It’s because we don’t teach them about self control and overindulgence. Have a problem? Have a treat. Granted, obesity can be caused by biological/genetic factors but statistics show that less than 1% of all obesity is caused by these factors.
Besides….guys…do you really want to miss seeing your dick first thing in the morning? And remember, if you have to call the construction crew to knock down a wall before you call an ambulance for a heart attack…you might be fat.
Gluttony? So not worth it. Give me Lust any day…
Thoughts? Stories? Favorite foods?
I already wrote about Wrath…What should be the next sin?
