If anyone had ever told me when I was baking bread back in the 1970s that these nutritious whole grains would eventually make me very sick, I would not have believed it. During college days, I belonged to a back-to-nature group and we made our bread from scratch and bought our milk from a local farmer and turned it into butter, cottage cheese and yogurt. We took the idea of food as our medicine very seriously and would have never suspected that the whole wheat we endorsed could actually be poison to the body. We harvested some vegetables and bought others from growers in the community and ate large salads and fresh bread every day.

While living in Ireland, I discovered something truly magical. I’m not speaking of pots of gold, leprechauns or four-leaf clovers. I’m speaking of the magical concoction that is banoffee pie.

Hypocrisy is an ugly word. It is even uglier when it moves beyond being just a word to describe a person’s lifestyle. Hypocrites are pious pretenders who preach by the yard and practice by the inch. They never intend to be what they pretend to be. We see them in every area of public life — in the business world, in politics, in education, service institutions, etc. But they are especially odious and destructive when they are found in churches. Paul said, “They have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof” (II Timothy 3:5).
