Let us examine the passage in Colossians 2, starting with verse 16: “Therefore, do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink.”
Simply put, you are free. Stop judging yourself for desiring and eating dessert in public. Likewise, stop judging others who are eating rich sauces and fat-filled meats! God has set us free from the food rules. Remember, Jesus described God as a father who would kill a fatted calf for the return of a prodigal son (Luke 15:11–32)! So who are we to judge? God did not accidentally leave the Basic Four food groups out of the Bible!
