protestant church gym: is it ok?
« on: October 24, 2021, 06:23:55 PM »
Many megachurches have these. Is paying a protestant house of worship for use of their gym a sin or an occasion to sin, even if its separate from their church?

I worked for one years ago, by separate, I mean they are (or this one was) organized separately from the church corporation. It was self-sustaining and legally separate, and it was located in a different building.

Only if you yell out the following while working out:

"And one for St. Simon of Cyrene" as your last rep on the squat bar

"St. Veronica pray for us!" when you wipe your face with a towel

"St. Dismas pray for us!" when on the fly machine

"They have no more wine!" when at the water fountain

Moan, "It's like purgatory in here!" in the sauna

etc.

Father time has an undefeated record.

Nineteen hundred years or near,
Clau-Clau-Claudius shall speak clear.

Yeah, I would say so. Your dues would be used to fund heresy as well as their dumbbell, curls for girls swole patrol.

I mean, paying dues at any gym that has cable machines is funding heresy, amirite?!

There's a place for cable movements as accessories.

I would say no. The Bible says you are supposed to avoid heretics.
