Would you like lies with that?

This excellent piece came recommended by a reader in Australia:

Why is it that all the things that taste so sumptuously savoury and sweet are bad for me?

Why is it that a soft fatty camembert or an extra-bitey mature cheddar is so harmful to my heart? I thought that maturity was a good thing.

Why is it that chocolate is so bad for my health? I thought it was full of life-prolonging antioxidants.

And why does gossip taste so delicious when the Bible says it’s so destructive?

“The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man’s most inmost parts” (Proverbs 18:8).

At times it feels so good I think that, like the antioxidants in my favourite chocolate (who am I kidding, all chocolate is my favourite chocolate), it has some therapeutic value?

Sometimes I wish the Bible wouldn’t put a dampener on some of the most delectable delights. Why is it so down on gossip?
