The Epistle lesson this morning was 1Corinthians 6:19-20, about the body being a temple of the Holy Spirit.  The children's sermon was about eating apples, taking care of your body by getting exercise, brushing your teeth, getting good sleep.  I got annoyed, thinking "That is not what the verse is about.  I am so tired of evangelicals (and others) extending the interpretation to that."  Then I remembered that what the verse is really about is not sleeping with temple prostitutes.  A tough children's sermon to preach.

So I guess apples weren't such a bad idea after all.

God just wants us to be healthy and physically immortal! Certainly nothing about purity, or defilement, or choices.
