Season: 12 Episode: 178
Does it matter how much you weigh, what you eat, or if you workout? Does God care how we take care of our bodies? Body positivity is promoted by our culture and that really means it doesn’t matter what you look like. Even if you’re overweight and your BMI is in the unhealthy zone, you should celebrate the way you look and so should everyone else. And although the Bible does not place value on us by how much we weigh or what we look like, does that mean God doesn’t care about a healthy lifestyle?
Robin Rhine McDonald is a faith-based holistic health coach and she walks us through what the Bible says about taking care of our bodies and why it’s important. We discuss what the Bible says about physical health and healing. The body is not less than the mind and soul. We talk about how the calling and purpose God places in our lives is closely connected with how we steward our bodies.

Where did this passion to look at health through a biblical lens come from? What inspired you to integrate a Biblical approach to a healthy lifestyle?
How does God tell us through His word how to eat, how to be healthy, and what is the purpose for health from a biblical standpoint?
You said 38.5% of the four gospels speak to physical healing. What does that say about the importance of the body?
What role does our health play in living out faith and works like James tells us to? I don’t think I’ve actually thought about my body playing an important role in faith and works even though I know it’s involved.
How can someone listening to this begin to look at health through a biblical lens and start making lasting changes? Why do we need to think differently about our health (biblically) rather than just jump on another diet trend?
What are the countercultural biblical principles of health?
