    FAQ

    By far, the most frequently asked question we receive at Muscle Missions is...

    Are you saying it is wrong to lift weights at all?

    Here is a letter that we received from Zachary asking the question followed by our answer:

    Hello,

    My name is Zachary. Let me first start off saying that I am a Christian. I love the Lord Jesus with all my heart, soul, strength and mind. I've been raised in a Christian home, and, by the grace of God, I believe Jesus to be the Savior! Praise the Lord!

    Now onto my question, but first a little background. My brother turned me onto your website. He found it while searching through YouTube videos. I believe. I must admit, when I first started reading around your website, I was skeptical of the information. But as I read the articles and watched your videos I began to realize what your mission is and how true it is. I was seemingly blind to the notions of bodybuilding.

    I began lifting weights when I was a junior in high-school. Before then I had never lifted. I was skinny and said, "Why not? I'll try this." It became somewhat addicting you might say, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I began researching dieting, proper nutrition, and methods of lifting to improve. So in some sense, I would say I'm a bodybuilder. In another, I would say I'm not because I do it as a hobby and something I enjoy. I lift 100% naturally.

    My question:

    Are you saying it is wrong to lift weights at all?

    While watching your videos I was appalled to see the root of the bodybuilding mantra. Essentially bodybuilders have made living idols of themselves and their bodies. I see this as disgusting. However, would you say I am wrong for enjoying lifting weights?

    I, in no way, mean to be combative or contentious. I simply would like to know your position.

    On a side note, I had purchased a "FLEX" magazine about a month ago. It was sitting in the top drawer of my nightstand. As soon as I saw your videos, I went to my nightstand, grabbed the magazine and threw it in the trash. So thank you for making me aware of the evil that is in these magazines.

    Thank you for your time!

    In Christ,
    Zachary

    MUSCLE MISSION'S ANSWER:

    Hello Zachary,
     
    Thank you for writing. I am not saying that it's wrong to lift weights. I lift weights myself. I enjoy it like you.
     
    Remember, God's Word says:
     
    For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. - I Timothy 4:8,9(KJV)
     
    Zachary, you did the right thing by throwing away the Flex magazine. You mentioned that you came to this conclusion by watching the videos on YouTube and reading the articles at Muscle Missions. Rightfully so.
     
    As I have pointed out in various articles, videos, and the book Anabolic Outlaw, drug abuse like that seen in bodybuilding is a form of sorcery. The bodybuilding magazines and even the Internet websites indoctrinate you into this process of drug taking.
     
    Consider this verse of scripture found in God's Word:
     
    Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men:...
    -Acts 19:19(a)(KJV)
     
    Your In Christ,
    Dennis
