American Impressions: Eats Everywhere

How many of you know what a White Castle is?

Let me just say: when your main menu item is a slider, that tells you all you need to know. They sell miniature burgers that are more grease than burger, so they slide down smoothly. Nothing more should be said.

Really, America has a great amount of eateries. No matter the style or the ambience, we have it. It’s the idolatrous blind spot in our culture. In our churches, all fashion of sin is dealt with or at least addressed, but gluttony is down the list if mentioned at all.

So much of our culture and so much of our fellowship is geared around food. While Scripture does speak of breaking bread with each other, I do not believe the intent was to consume the entire bread factory.

Are there other ways to fellowship? And if food is necessary, can we choose healthier options that will take better care of God’s temple (1 Cor. 6:19-20)?

Some food for thought.
