Lifting for Christ


#1

Is there anyone out there that believes we lift for Christ?


#2

Yay, this thread should be fuuuuuun!


#3

No.


#4

What's your opinion?


#5

wait, as in it is a god given duty for us to lift or that lifting brings us closer... elaborate on what you mean by "lift for Christ"


#6

I don't care if people lift for hobbits, or their mom, or the government, or so they are strong enough to defeat the voices in their heads. All I care about is that they lift.


#7

No kiddin'...

Personally, I think Jesus is capable of his own deadlifts.

Christ had to carry the very cross that he died on. He lifted for himself, and I think that's enough.


#9

How much would Christ deadlift? I mean, if he had chalk and straps of course...


#10

I don't see the point of lifting for Christ. If I believed in Christ, I could think of other things to do than weightlifting that would probably make him happier. Weightlifting makes me happy. It sounds a little self-serving to say you're weightlifting for Christ, when it's what you want to do and your religious obligations really have nothing to do with it.
Hang on while I go drive my car fast for Christ.

Huh? Wha? I'm thoroughly confused. I think I just got dumber for reading that.

In all things do it onto the name of Christ. I guess that qualifies. Not exactly what I think of before breaking a sweat tho.

#13

No, and I don't care who does.


#14

lol, i lift for me.

The question you should ask is how many people believe in christ.


#15

But the real question is, can God put so much weight on the bar that he himself cann't lift it?


#16

Now that's pretty funny.

poop face.


#17

Let's not. How about we stick to Test related things like weights, women, and sex.


#18

What mean is how many of yall feel that Christ works through you and powerlifting.
How many give glory to Chirst for bringing you to this sport. Because I realized today that I haven't been. No i'm not sayin that before every deadlift you look to the sky and say " I pull this 600 lbs. for you Lord God!"
I'm simply askin whether or not many of you thank the lord everyday, workout, and/ or meet that He has given you the opportunity to do what we all love. Lift Heavy Weights. I most certainly didn't think God had anything to do with it until today.


#19

Poop face or not, the fact remains that it is a dumb question and really doesn't belong here.

...TSB?
