What did the Apostle Paul really mean when he said your body is a temple? Many Christians go around spouting this verse when they are judging a person for doing something that is not healthy in one way or another. They have equated this verse with healthy living and taking care of your body. However what did the Apostle Paul mean when he wrote that your body is a temple? Did it mean abstinence from anything bad for your physical health? Is it another commandment we are to follow to prove that we are living at a higher level of spirituality than those that that are not as health or “temple” conscious. Could it be that the Apostle Paul was not even thinking about things like drinking alcohol in moderation, or the effects of caffeine or any other mild stimulant like diet pills, even the natural ones. Is that honestly what the Apostle Paul was talking about or is that man taking a scripture out of context to suit their agenda or personal bias? Well let’s look at the scripture in context and let’s see what the issue was of the day and why Paul was reminding people that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
