I've heard a lot of people, when talking about eating junk, say, "everything in moderation" or use the word "balance". Everything in moderation? Where did people get that from? Many look to the Bible. I've looked up "everything in moderation" or "all in moderation", in multiple versions. That phrase is not in the Bible. The words "moderation" and "balance" are in the Bible, but are used differently. What's really going on here?
Many people want to feel good about eating their junk. At least, they want to feel okay about it. I've personally struggled with this for years. We tell ourselves that it is permissible and even fine, according to the Bible. But it's not true. According to the Bible, God wants us to surround ourselves with good things and shun the bad. It's pretty simple. But like the expression, "have your cake and eat it too", so many want to "have their junk and eat it too." For your own health and well-being and for the health of your loved ones, surround yourselves with only good food, real food. God wants us to eat foods that help us, not junk that hurts us.
