The real word of God could have actually said Eat, Drink, and be merry. But, that was in one of the books that never made it past the selection committee.
I really wanted to let this go, but I just can't! I'm a glutton for punishment!
Monks did not record the Bible, do your research. I will not unload on you thi stime, , but I will advise you that the real word of God does mention what you said, see Eccliesiastes 8:15 (but don't take outof context, lol)
"So I commended pleasure, for there is nothing good for a man under the sun except to eat and to drink and to be merry, and this will stand by him in his toils throughout the days of his life which God has given him under the sun."
