    Not really guilty, but as though I've forgotten something. I'm a Humanist, but my grandchildren are being reared as Christians, so their grandmother and I lead them in saying grace. We've done it often enough to become used to it, and now I find myself thinking about saying grace even when the little ones are not around. Such is the power of habit.

    Are you talking about a prayer before meals or someone using the word Grace, Yes, I say a prayer before I eat, but you will be surprise when I ask someone to say grace, that is all they do, they say the word grace.

    I say grace after I eat

  • I feel guilty because numerous times, God hasn't let me choke on or eat poisoned food. Plus the food I am eating now, might not be around for my kids. So yes.

    I don't know any reason to say Grace before I eat. I don't know anybody called Grace.

    Yes. I sometimes eat what is told to us in the old testament not to eat. But if you bless it before you eat - then it is fine (that is what it says in the new testament). If I remember correctly it is because of the last supper and how he blessed the food and drink in remembrance of him.

    See the food laws for the old testament info: http://www.1335.com/foodlaws.html

    No...I feel guilty if I start eating before saying "This looks great! Thanks!" to whoever bought the food and cooked the meal.
