The Science and Role of Fasting in Christian Building

By

Abstract

The ethical norm of fasting has scriptural backing in the New and Old Testaments, yet to some Christians today fasting has entered the oblivion state. Because fasting is not essentially for Christians alone, it can be found in other world religions both ancient and modern. In fact, religion and fasting have gone together in greater or smaller measure from the beginning.
