Seven Deadly Sins: Gluttony

Gluttony, like lust, is the desire for something that does not give permanent fulfilment. The only difference is that the world promotes lust but condemns gluttons. (We should really love one another regardless of the person’s sins.) One should never place food as god. Instead, food should be a tool to give sustenance to the physical body that God has given to us. To me, the consequences of gluttony does not cause that strong of a rippling effect as lust causes. (Perhaps it does. Just that I do not know any at the moment.) Or rather, because of the world’s forbidden perspective towards gluttons that prevents most from falling into this trap of gluttony so the adverse effects are not distinct. By this people are motivated to stay away from gluttony. However, it is for the wrong purpose, that is to be accepted by people who judge others for their size. From what I read from Wikipedia,  gluttony is considered a sin because of the excessive desire for food, or its withholding from the needy. I guess it is true to some extent.
