    I've been dieting these last 6 weeks or so and finally can say I'm now under the required weight.

    Should I change my log on name???

    Dallas, could you please explain something?

    What exactly did you mean in your profile by Romans 10:23?

    If I were under 200 pounds I would be underweight. My optimal weight is allegedly about 215 pounds, but I haven't be able to sustain it except for short periods.

    Well, Ed, that would actually make it worse, since in the Bible I read, Romans 10 only has 21 verses....

    We have a deacon who is about 130 pounds if that much, another about 160 pounds, as a matter of fact most of them are under 200 pounds.
    I'm not sure what this topic has to do with anything. Considering this and the other thread I assume you like to point at people.

    Dallas... You might be kidding, but there are quite a few of us struggling to lose weight on this board and I, for one, do not find your comments amusing.

    We have no overweight deacons at our church.

    What is this doing in THIS forum? I can see nothing it has to do with theology OR Bible study.

    Oh but it does have to do with theology. It is about gluttony. It is about obedience and self control so we do not sin or cause others to sin.

    Also added weight adds to the pressure on the joints. Overweight people often have joint problems later in life. Poor health does nothing to help serve God. It is one thing is a person is born with poor health and another if it our choice.

    No, in our church, weight doesn' matter. But height does. They must be 6 feet 5 inches tall (or taller) to serve as deacons. [​IMG]

    </font>[/QUOTE]Ah, you are talking
    about the difference between "high church"
    and "low church". I belong to a "low church"
    where the worship atmosphere is a bit less
    structured and the deacons must be
    less than 6 foot high. [​IMG]

    I am 6'4, 220 myself, so I qualify on the big and tall scale!, I think that I last weighed less than 200 when I was a soph in high school. most of our other deacons dont come close on either scale however. I guess we should be booted from the SBC!

    Shuckin's, I got stunted at 6'3" and 215.. :rolleyes:

    Course in the words of Abraham Lincoln, a man's legs only have to be long enough to reach the ground... [​IMG]

    Our Lord Carried the weight of the world on His shoulders, for me, and I sure ain't going to worry if my precious Brother or Sister is carring a bit of their own, for it is irrelevant. The heart is what matters, whether that heart is focussed on Christ.

    Shame on those who are blighted with shallow vision which enables them to only see the outside. God bless those who are blessed with Christ vision, and can clearly see our Lord indwelling our Sister and Brother's heart.

    May God so bless His precious children, and draw all hearts and eyes to the Master's feet.


    A servant of Christ,
    Drew
