Look, I want to go to heaven. And I'm doing what I can to get there. But I have to admit that one thing about the prospect of celestial glory really has me worried: food. Will there BE food in heaven? Will we NEED it? Will we all be vegetarians? Will we eat nothing but superfoods like raw spinach leaves, or will we eat some sort of heavenly food that is nutritionally perfect but tastes like cardboard? Will there be Elvish lembas bread on the ground every morning for us to eat? OR, will we still be able to eat a big steak and baked potato dinner? The whole "lion laying down with the lamb" concept: does it extend to humans having friendships with (and therefore having no desire to eat) cattle? I heard a thing on NPR about "tissue-cultured meat." Ick. If that's what we will be eating in heaven, I am done for. Maybe there will be steak trees in heaven that magically grow real steak without harming any animals?
Two of my major vices in my carnal, earthly state are, of course, food, and clothing. But I feel like I could get over clothing. I can wear the same white robe as everyone else when I get to heaven. But CAN I give up kit kats?? Can I let go of my love for a juicy burger? When it comes to vegetarians--sorry if I offend anyone out there--I have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy. Frankly, I think vegetarianism is AGAINST the will of God. The way I see it is that if God had intended for us to be vegetarians, he wouldn't have invented the fatted calf. So, anyway. This is just something that's been keeping me up at night. Vote on my poll and let me know what you think.
