Paleo in a church? Heh, how about another take on it, Creation-based eating:

Genesis 1:29-30 - "29 Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food." And it was so." (note, no mention of partially-hydrogenated vegetable oil)

And how about Psalms 23:4, perfect for Crossfit: "Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and staff, they comfort me"

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Knock yourself out with the search feature. You're only limited by your creative search capabilities. "Strength" offers some sobering motivation.

Moderators addition: Links are "safe" in the sense that they go to an online search function for scripture passages. Daniel, please note this designation.

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Biblegateway is a sweet tool. Basically makes a concordance obsolete.

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Kinda gives the spartans a run for their money...

II Samuel 23:8, 9-10

"Josheb-Basshebeth, a Tahkemonite, was chief of the Three; he raised his spear against eight hundred men, whom he killed in one encounter."

"Then the men of Israel retreated, but he stood his ground and struck down the Philistines till his hand grew tired and froze to the sword... The troops returned ...but only to strip the dead."

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Hebrews 12:1


...let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.

This is on the back of my dog tag when I go out running by myself.

Re: Scripture for gym walls

James 1:2-4

2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
