Burping, acidity, retrosternal burning pain, food regurgitation and nausea are the commonest symptoms in a Foodie, one who hogs on street food and a spice lover.

Many a time we like to add spice to everything in life, forgetting it’s health hazards. On the other end when it comes to spirituality people have started cherry-picking Bible verses and sometimes mere words to manipulate minds. These sermons and preaching are soothing to ears but have lot of adverse effects on our lifestyle and relationship with God. We need not consume everything and anything, we should always have a discernment to what is apt for us. Word of God says in “2 Timothy 4:3 For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to a sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.”
The causative factors will progressively turn symptomatic and lead to frequent regurgitation and reflux. Revelation 3:16 states “But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!” We would be puked out from God’s plan if we do not heed His words and go astray with prosperity and soothing preaching. Be vigilant in the last days of Lord’s coming.
