So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.                       -1 Corinthians 10:31 

 

The Theology of Eating 

By Dr. Joshua Trock PT, DPT 

 

“I’m hungry, but I probably shouldn’t eat that.” I have no doubt that all of us have uttered that phrase at some point in our life. Whether it’s because we weren’t feeling well and the food may make us sick or we have some sort of weight-loss goal and that second slice of wedding cake would for sure derail our diet. There seems to be an intrinsic “ought” behind our decisions to eat or abstain from certain foods but are these “oughts” merely pragmatic in nature or is there an underlying theological impetus driving these decisions? My goal in this article is to develop a theological framework that undergirds how we approach food and how and what we choose to eat on a regular basis.

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”– 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 

 

The Theology of Our Bodies 

By Dr. Joshua Trock PT, DPT 

 

“It’s my body and I can do whatever I want with it!” How often have you heard this as an underlying reason for a person’s autonomy to make whatever health choice they want? I regularly hear this in my career as a physical therapist as a reason for individuals to make horrendous choices regarding their health that have real world implications. For instance, I care for many people that have Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (http://www.webmd.com/diabetes/type-2-diabetes-guide/type-2-diabetes#1) and despite being given a plethora of cause and effect data regarding how to manage their disease with diet and exercise they continue to eat poorly and remain sedentary as the disease ravages their bodies. However, while most of my patients are not Christians, are we followers of Christ any different? Is there any reason or divine responsibility for us to take care of ourselves regarding our health or are we free to do whatever we want as long as it isn’t sin? My hope in this article is to give a biblical framework for how God views our bodies and the responsibility He has given to us.
