Guest Post – My Body as God’s House

If you’ve been following along at all, you know we’re not very religious around here. As such, I am always super interested in those that live their lives in accordance to some of those guidelines. Rebecca at “Blogging With Goodly Intentions” is one of those. Her blog is captivating to me. She’s agreed to do this guest post for me, and I am forever grateful.


19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
–1 Corinthians 6:19-20 King James Version
It’s simple, really.  God’s word, which are the words in the Bible,  says that my body is a temple ( house) of the Lord.  God’s house should not be filled with junk.  It should be holy ground.  With that in mind, I have to figure out what is okay to allow  into my body.
My mouth is a way into my body.  What am I putting into my body when I drink a bottle of soda?  What about carrots?  What about water?  Or the cupcake?
