I have one question for many American Clergy . Isnt Gluttony a sin to you?. I can`t believe how many priests are overweight what is it that they do not believe Gluttony is a sin. The gospel tells us to present our body as a perfect sacrifice to the Lord. Do all things as unto the Lord. Doesnt that include eating and excersize. It also tells us that if there is so much as food in our stomach on that day God will tell us go away you had youre fill. So watch out people. I think we are all being misled. Do you have to believe people who dont work and wear robes indulging themselves on food they bought with our tythe money. While people starve and slave for a little food in indigent countries and believe in the same God , Are children of the same Father in Heaven, and serve the same master in heaven.
I once seen a priest on t.v. visiting from some country like ethiopia or somewhere very indigent poor. He was on display during a basketball game. He stood in the middle of the basketball court during a live broadcast of a game on t.v. . He was so fat he made the basketball players look small. What it seemed like to me was a blashemous man who's heart knew not the same God or would not have over ate and lived a lazy way. God hates lazyness is in the bible.Paul wrote in his gospels that many are guardians of the faith but few are fathers. To imitate he and the other apostles because they are our fathers. Then he went on to explain we are to work with our hands like they had. Even Paul and the apostles worked with their hands. How many american priests work with their hands . Do you know any?. The old bishops of medieval times were artisans and men with skill and power. The bishops are fat men lazy and unproductive seeming. How is being a fat lazy man conforming to christs image. The same christ who did so much while on earth they could write enough books to fill the earth about his works before he was even 40. Work with youre hands it says. It tells us not to be like those who talk for a living in the gospel. Even actors excersize though for vain reasons . I cannot believe that these men are right before the Lord. Do they really pray to the same God before they eat. Or do they make a god out of their stomach. Have any of you read the scriptures speaking about those who make their stomach their god. We dont need lazy fat clergy we need examples and people who will fight for the same cause we really serve. Would you support some stranger so he could over eat and indulge himself not working . Why support these men. Its strange to me they dont humble themselves to the Lord. I hate to be around them. They know not the importance of self discipline and self control their is no evidence of it. They cant possibly be presenting thier own body subject to christ. How believe they are our fathers. I know we are not supposed to judge but judge not just discern. Its obvious they didnt love God enough to live with discipline and fear of hell.
I am not a large man. I have always been pound for pound stronger then most men. I worked myself to the bone all my life. I didnt play sports I worked. I bowed to God each day humbling myself to our Savior. I made an effort each day to take every step as unto the Lord. Discipline !!!. I consciously made myself work as unto the Lord all day. When I ate I prayed sincerely to God not just as a custom or ritual . I prayed with sincerity and faith in the christ they pretend dont know me unless they know me. The God they pretend is pleased by their lazy fat way of life.
Over eating is the number cause of death today . More people are dying from obeisity than from cancer. Sin is death are the Lords words. So put two and two together. I am 5'6 135 pounds. I could stay stronger than even some of the largest men because of my faith in the Lord keeping me strong and giving me a way to use my body that was right to the Lord. I got a hall of fame for combat strength training . One of the smallest guys in our company I was stood up and told I am an example of what the army wants as a soldier. I didnt want that to happen but the drill sergeant wanted to let the platoon know I was doing the training beyond what his own expectations were. It was boot camp for Gods sakes. I just stayed focused on Christ all day and night. I sang in the choir on sunday and prayed all day. I despise having to sit in a congregation with some fat man leading a ceremony that has to do with the God who taught me to care about my health and to be motivated and strong. To live life working and caring about how I use my body. I dont follow fat people there is no way. I will not believe fat priests are my leaders.
