But, back to spiritually fat. First, with rising obesity it doesn't conjure a good image. All it conjures for me is Liza Minnelli singing about fat little pastors in Cabaret. And I don't think it should conjure a good image. I think spiritually fat people creates unhealthy churches. People come in, gorge themselves on spiritual food, and go away not exercising any of it off. So you just end up with a church of obese attendees and a few emaciated individuals that are serving everyone.
