Okey-k’fokey, let’s see if The Purging Lutheran can post an article which doesn’t turn into a blab-a-thon such as yesterday’s the daily unoriginal content. Yerps! How long-winded was that?
This week‘s posts, via unoriginal content, have been dedicated to the American past-times of healthy living and athletic entertainment. Today’s snapshot includes two! types of hobbies some Americans enjoy – working out and bicycling.
I personally know people who enjoy these endeavors. Just not together. The peeps I know who bike-a-lot are not weightlifters. They tend to be thin humans. The ‘working out’ crowd with whom I’m familiar enjoy building muscle mass are not bike-a-lots but enjoy looking ‘bulky’.
Persistent Reader: Can these two groups ever find a way to co-exist?
The Purging Lutheran: Short of sharing the same table at an O’Charley’s, no.
19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” 20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.” 21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.” 22 So they said to him, “Who are you? We need to give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?” 23 He said, “I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.”
24 (Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.) 25 They asked him, “Then why are you baptizing, if you are neither the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?” 26 John answered them, “I baptize with water, but among you stands one you do not know, 27 even he who comes after me, the strap of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.” 28 These things took place in Bethany across the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
