Wilson: If God Made It

“What sort of thing would devils teach if given the opportunity? What would they say if given the pulpit next Sunday? What would a seducing spirit say if given the chance to sear the conscience of a Bible teacher with a hot iron?

At the very top of the list would be prohibitions of food and sex. But for those who believe and who know the truth, such things were created by God in order to be received with thanksgiving. This means gratitude, gladness, and contentment. If God made it, there is a good use for it, and frequently this good use includes having been sautĂ©ed in butter. The word of God and prayer sanctifies all creatures, including the creatures on the table for those around the table.”

– Douglas Wilson, My Life for Yours (pp. 53-54)
