On another thread a poster said: HTML: I would hope more people as humans would have enough decency and be responsible enough to take care of their bodies. Obesity is a real issue in this country and I can't stand seeing overweight preachers that aren't even responsible enough to maintain a healthy weight. So is it sin to be an overweight Preacher? Should a church consider the BMI before extending a call? If a church desires a "proper size" should they use something in the line of the Army Regulation for weight? ( AR 600-9) pdf file Note: the Height/weight chart is on page 10 Should other church leaders be held to the standards? Do you see overweight pastors as a problem at all? Is overweight/excessive overweight in the same ball park as alcoholic abuse, ect? Does the Bible teach against obesity? Other comments Salty PS - no need to answer all the questions - pick out 2 or 3 possibly.
