But regardless what you do, someone is going to find fault with you:
- For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they said, ‘He is possessed by a demon.’
- The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said, ‘Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is vindicated by her works (Matthew 11.18-19).
I know I’m pulling this passage out of a context talking about who John the Baptist and Jesus are. But, I think the point still stands; there is room in the Christian faith for both ascetics and … what shall I call them … non-ascetics (normal people ?).
