Got Some Weird Cravings?
“And there was a great famine in Samaria; and indeed they besieged it until a donkey’s head was sold for eighty shekels of silver, and one-fourth of a kab of dove droppings for five shekels of silver.” 2 Kings 6:25
A depraved diet marked this tragic season of famine in Israel. A depraved diet is the mark in our day. The only difference is that ours is a spiritual famine.
Today we're feeding on all sorts of depravity and filth. Do you know why pornography is read by so many? Why night clubs are filled? Why there’s an opioid epidemic? Because there's a famine for the Word of God. Anytime a person isn’t properly fed, they'll resort to feasting on a donkey's head.
How do you change your diet, your cravings? Not by saying, “I'm going to be a good boy.” Rather, by loading up on the Word of God—diving in, meditating upon it, filling your spirit from His bounty, so you’ll not be hungry for that which corrupts yet doesn’t satisfy.

Just as plants need certain essentials to grow---light, water, and fertile soil---so do new Christians, babes in the faith. Without these essential basic truths of the faith, they will never establish strong roots or bear fruit.Adrian Rogers has written this book to give believers the nurture and care their faith needs to blossom and grow. What Every Christian Ought to Know seeks to give intellectual truth, and also provide the "spiritual nutrients" required to produce mature faith.
