Scripture and history reveal that early Christians, like the Old Testament worshippers of YHVH, fasted a lot.  My experience is that twenty-first century Christians don't understand it.  They don't understand what letting yourself get hungry has to do with Salvation or spirituality.  The thing is, God has had a lot to say about fasting.  He has rewarded fasting with answered prayers and revelations.  He has acknowledged fasting as an acceptable form of penance.  He has also spoken out…
