Can Christians Fast From Things Other Than Food?

host Adriel Sanchez aired February 21, 2023

Episode 1168 Show Notes 

From the Show

We see many biblical figures fasting in the Bible. Today people will often fast from TV or social media to focus on the Lord. In the ancient world they didn’t have Facebook, Twitter, or television, but maybe it is appropriate to devote the time we spend doing those things on things like prayer.

– Pastor Adriel Sanchez
Can Christians Fast From Things Other Than Food?

Questions in this Episode

  1. As a pastor, have you ever changed your mind on a belief you’ve held?
  2. What did Jesus mean when he said that his followers must “eat of his flesh”?
  3. When Christians fast, do they have to fast from food or can they fast from other things?
