    God is a Spirit and so I believe the answer is “No.”

    Wow. So witty, LittleMutt. Did you hear that in your kindergarten class while you were eating glue?

    Edit: Advanced mind? LOL! Good one!

    The dignification of this elementary school like thread is not to be desired for me.

    However, when God became a MAN in incarnation, as a typical MAN (yet without sin) He lived as all MEN typically do, including the normal use of the digestive system.

    The Word was God and the Word became flesh. (John 1:1,14)

    So god does not have a functioning GI tract, but Jesus did (does)? Something is not adding up!

    God is a Spirit. When God took on flesh in the form of s man (Jesus Christ,) He was fully man as well as fully God.

    Thus, God, prior to Jesus Christ’s earthly birth, was a Spirit. Jesus Christ was fully man and had a functioning GI tract. That’s my best guess.

    I notice you said Jesus "was". Does this mean there is no Jesus now? Or, if there is a Jesus now, what is the status of his GI tract? I am just trying to understand.

    Whether Jesus retained His status of fully God and fully man after His Resurrection and ascension to heaven - and whether He retains it today - is an interesting question.

    God the Father remains a Spirit. The Holy Spirit likewise. Jesus? I suspect He is still fully God and fully man.

    If Jesus remains fully God and fully man today, He is in a glorified body - as believers will be on the new heaven and new earth. I suspect bodily functions that you’re thinking of are not part of glorified bodies.

    Now Christ has a glorified body which is not subject to tiredness, sleep, death, or things related to fallen man.

    "The body of His glory" is a transfigured state entirely different from that of His life during the thirty three and one half years walking the earth.

    The saved will receive also this resurrected and transfigured glorified body.

    " For our commonwealth exists in the heavens, from which also we eagerly await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

    Who will transfigure the body of our humiliation to be conformed to the body of His glory, according to His operation by which He is able to subject all things to Himself." (Phil 3:20,21)
