I always wondered about that saying.
I know what it’s supposed to imply.
Taken literally it just makes no sense to me.
Honestly what else is there to do with cake?
Back to the question at hand.
Yes…. you can have your cake and eat it too, if dishonesty, deceit, and manipulation are involved.
There will be consequence to these behaviors, even if you never get caught taking nibbles or eating cupcakes.
Sort of like a diet, the more pure without cheating really makes a difference.
In a righteous way, I don’t see why not.
In an unrighteous way, I don’t see why.
Either way, you can have it and eat it too.
It’s just a matter of what you plan on feeding within yourself.
One way will make you more full of life. The other will eat at you.
