What is the main point of fasting? Is it just self control by abstaining from foods.
Is it abstaining from foods that give you pleasure (you enjoy eating)
I thought that the point of fasting was to get the body weak in the physical sense (that's what I've always assumed) in order to get your spirit stronger.
I've heard many reasons, but I believe there's only one truth to it and the rest are just other benefits (i.e. diet, health).
Anyone have expertise about this?
Thank you and please pray for me PLEASE especially tongiht.
