That the mind is not intoxicated by wine alone.
when filled with all kinds of food gives birth to seeds of #wantonness
, nor can the #mind
, when choked with the weight of #food

, they were burnt up by the judgment of God with fire and brimstone from heaven, But if excess of bread alone drove them to such a headlong downfall into sin through the vice of satiety, what shall we think of those who with a vigorous body dare to partake of #Flesh

You will never be able to detect this only by monitoring yourself with the scriptures that give you the code of conduct for normal person
