American pastor Rick Warren offered an unusual way to fight the obesity epidemic that swept the United States. Given religiosity of many Americans, the pastor believes that scripture has more weight in society than words nutritionists, and by faith the problem of excess weight can be solved.
Pastor found in the Bible episode showing that God wants believers slender, not subject to the sin of gluttony. In the Scriptures, the prophet Daniel tells about three Christian youths who were not tempted by the tsarist
refreshments Nebuchadnezzar and not disowned the faith and asked for vegetables and water for 10 days. After the "diet" and prayers they showed the difference between a king and chubby
boys of the royal court. Nebuchadnezzar was convinced that Christians with God's help maintain their body slim and beautiful.
Preacher Warren believes that true believer is obliged to keep your body in shape, because man was created in the image and likeness of God. For many people, faith can become motivated to lose weight when other reasons to do them is not.
