KANSAS CITY, Mo. (BP) -- Gluttony is the big fat elephant in the room of the evangelical church. I don’t remember ever hearing a sermon or lesson on gluttony when I was growing up, despite the fact it was rampant all around us. I remember plenty of talk on the dangers of sex and alcohol and even rock and roll music, but nary a word on over-indulging in food.

Scripture teaches that heaven is "richer than our four-dimensional space, more vibrant, more colorful," Jared Wilson writes, noting that a grasp of heaven's glory can change everyday life.
