At what point is the consumption of ice cream considered to be gluttonous and, therefore, a sin?  To be more specific, how many times a day is it acceptable for a christian to have a serving of ice cream?  Thank you so much for your insight.

Sincerely,
Waffling About The Cone

Dear Waffling About The Cone,

We specialize in Bible answers to questions, and there is no specific number of scoops that the Bible dictates you can or cannot have… so all you ice cream lovers take a deep breath and relax!  The Bible addresses gluttony as an act of laziness (Pr 19:24) and an abuse of the body God has given you (1 Cor 6:19).  Physical exercise is noted as being profitable, but not nearly as important as spiritual exercise (1 Tim 4:8).  Overall, the Scriptures lay out a general principle of healthy living and not overindulging.  Moderation is the key, and there is a time for everything (Eccl 3:1).  Just make sure you balance out that Rocky Road with a little broccoli from time to time!

Why did God create the universe?

Sincerely,
Big Picture

Dear Big Picture,

God created the universe for His enjoyment and His glory (Col 1:16-17).  God makes it clear that before He made even one molecule of the universe, He planned to offer salvation to mankind (Eph 1:4).  His plan was that all mankind would be offered the opportunity to spend eternity with Him through Jesus Christ (Eph 1:5).  God created the earth, so we might live on it, choose Him, and spend eternity as His children.
