Compared to Who? Body Image for Christian Women

Aug 16, 2022

If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you'd probably call yourself a Christian. You may even say that's our religion. But, when we follow diets, there is a temptation to follow a false religion. In fact, that's why diets sell and why Christians love diets so much--there's a lot of similarities between following a diet and our walk of faith. But, it's important in the end to know which "religion" you are more allegiant to--the religion of diets or Jesus!

Today we explore the following topics in this episode--The Religion of Diets:

**We talk about the great similarities between what Diet Culture teaches and what Christianity teaches in terms of faith and salvation.

**We look at words like righteousness, holiness, grace, and justice and how they apply to both Christianity and to our dieting.

**We explore why it's so easy to fall into the trap of earning righteousness through food or exercise rules and how real Christianity requires grace that dieting doesn't offer.

**We explore the root word of Diet Culture and talk about how a shared faith and worship of something that's not Jesus is always idolatry.
