the body is supposed to be the temple of your god right? so if this person is abusing that temple is that not a sin?

God will punish those that talk about a man of GOd!!!!!

"And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them." 2Kings 2:23-24

First of all that b.c. stands for before christ so that would have been 2000 years before he was ever here. Secondly, he didn't speak english then, he spoke hebrew. The verse being quoted is translated from Hebrew and Latin and in plain english it states that it is a sin to talk about a man of god in a negative way. So whether him being overweight is a sin or not, talking about it is.

Mark has always been lazy and this was a logical career choice for him...you figure he works about 10 hours a week. He's just waiting for his father to pass away so he can cash in.

Also, you are saying never question someone who decides to be a preacher? You're an idiot, blindly following someone else because you're too lazy or stupid to ask hard/insightful questions.

Prayer is a great way to do nothing and still feel like you're helping. Christians are worthless.

It's a person like you that needs the most prayers and people don't follow preachers they follow God and his word.It sounds as if you might be a lazy, definately stupid because you're not asking the hard questions about your soul and salvation because it's real easy to be unsaved not believing in God waiting to burn in hell. When in fact being a Christian is very hard it's hard not to judge you and even harder to pray for your soul while thinking it's not worth the trouble but I do pray hard for you because you will be the one suffering eternally when you realize you were wrong.Since you don't believe in God I find it very hard for people to care what you think about Mark and as for the others if you don't like his preaching don't listen to it.

Being fat is not a sin when you have medical conditions such as Thyroid disease. It shows your ignorance about the bible when it plainly states judge not less you be judged. Also medications for heart disease and diabetics have weight problems healthy people do not have. You can interpret the bible in a way that God himself does not see as you do. Perhaps you need some prayers for believing such a silly interpetation you have come up with like that. God is worried about your soul, stupid, not your weight! There isn't a weight limit in Heaven!

Who r u to judge if he is over weight? We all sin everyday, and no sin is greater than the next. I know him and he is a good guy and has a good family. I do not believe in his religious beliefs and have voiced this to him and he never judged me. To this day he speaks and talks to me just as I do him, as a "child of God" we all have our own believes and that is our choice. Isnt there a low life drug addict Rockcastle countian to talk about or a dead beat cop, talk about how lazy and fat they r, they r so bad they wont even serve a warrant on a dead beat dad and leave a preacher alone who is just trying to bring the word of God to this messed up world.

@praying hard...So if a person doesn't beleive in God than we should disregard their opinion. Wow, we're going to have to disregard BILLIONS of people on the planet. So you think you got it right and BILLIONS of other people got it wrong? Hmm?

......Let's Compare Prayer vs Work:

Easy:>>>>> >>>>>Prayer.

Quick:>>>>>> >>>Prayer.

Absolves Responsibility:>>> >>Prayer.

Fixes The Problem:>>>>> >>>>Work.

Keep taking the easy way out, buddy.

So what's the difference between him being fat and someone smoking or drinking? Nothing.

You are correct. Since no one is perfect no one can possibly point out that this is wrong...right?

Well I don't know this man but I think he is probably a good person and preacher considering the only thing you have to write bad about him is that he is overweight...geeze it would be a relief to me if the worst thing the human race did was eat too much food. WOW the only thing I can even think is how ridiculous it is to start a post about someone because they are overweight...

Well tell me how you gonna feel if this is what makes him backslide? You will be responsible for his soul now. When God asked you why you did? WHAT ARE GOING TO SAY? You need to say your sorry to him and repent. Amen.
