Taking everything in moderation is not being moderate in all things because it contradicts itself! It is more moderate to take some things in moderation, abstain completely from other things, and also take some things to unending bounds! How do we know how to take things? Read the Bible.
Take the needful things of the flesh in moderation, abstain completely from the sinful things of the flesh, and enjoy the spiritual things of God's love and heavenly rewards to unending bounds!
