Eat like an Athiest or eat like Jesus. Because godless heathens know how to make 2 minute microwave cakes while good Christians might whip up the prodigal son's fatted calf.

".....Another type of asceticism is confronting illness, aging and death. She said it is a Lenten time of life when the decision is made to cling to youth or roll with the inevitability of aging as it comes.

“All the things we have that are precious to us are gradually removed,” she said. “I don’t want to suggest that suffering is good for us. Suffering is evil and should be gotten rid of. But religion gives us a way to assign meaning to suffering, to make something holy out of something evil.” "

Holiness. Suffering. Evil.

Christianity, at times, seems to me like a two-legged goat staggering along a cliff hanging mountain pass that wends around the abyss.

Jesus had good abs, learning what he eats is only useful when supplemented with a stringent workout plan.

The best part about cooking with Jesus is that he makes his own cooking wine.

If Jesus had a cooking show, would he have a band?

I understand it's a simple diet -- mostly fish and bread, and a bit of wine if someone's getting hitched.

Yeah, they would be called The Rejects.

And on that cooking show, when Jesus said "BAM!", he'd really mean it!

“All the things we have that are precious to us are gradually removed,” she said.


if all that's precious to this person is her youth, she has her eye on the wrong ball. talk about a setup for failure...

“I don’t want to suggest that suffering is good for us.

because everyone knows we develop strength, character and perseverence just fine all on our own.

Suffering is evil and should be gotten rid of.

trout, equating the misguided words of the confused moron who uttered them with "Christianity" is a cheap shot that could only fool other morons, and you know it.

Wait a sec. A heartfelt comment from quonsar, without his ever ready sarcasm, in which quonsar actually takes offense at someone else's snark?
Where's the real quonsar, and what did you do with him???!!?
