Our real food and religion series is over. I have really enjoyed reading and learning from so many different perspectives. I found it interesting that even though some of the writers had similar religious beliefs, they translated to very different things in practice.
It's interesting to understand why people do what they do. There are many motivating factors regarding what we eat and feed our families, and religion is just one of those. But it seems to be one that people are passionate about.
For me, there are certain things I will never drink, like coffee, tea or alcohol. Science is sometimes ambiguous on all three of these (I've read good and bad about all of them), but God knows more than science, and it's not something I spend a lot of time worrying about. My beliefs in my faith matter a lot more to me than whatever new science may come out.
Here are links to all the posts in case you missed any:
