Jesus Solves Bad Posture (its in the Scriptures)
    #1756934 - 07/28/03 07:14 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Found this while searching for some tips on fixing bad posture:

Quote:

"Looking at the sin," wrote Theodore Monod, "only gives death; looking at Jesus gives life."

Psalm 32:3-4 and Psalm 38:3-10 both say that your personal sins, unrelieved by Jesus, can give you

physical weakness,
depression,
heart palpitations,
back pains,
a tendency to infections,
vision problems,
and even bad posture.

Right now are you more aware of your sins than you are of Jesus? Focusing on them will do you in. There's no godliness in continually mourning over your sins. There's no merit in spending your life wringing your hands and crying, "I'm such a sinner! Oh, my awful sins!"

Any occupation with self is, in itself, sin. So don't even make the matter of seeking to renounce your sins the big focus of your life.

If you're a man, do you play with toy cars? Probably not. You did as a boy -- but there came a time when driving a real one was more fun, and you just quit playing with the others. You didn't give up toy cars; they gave up you.

If you're a woman, do you play with dolls? Probably not. You used to -- but one day a fellow asked you out, and you discovered something better! You didn't give up dolls; they gave up you.

And when you fix your eyes on Jesus and you find out that He's flooding into you His resurrection life and power -- you don't renounce a life of sin; it will renounce you.




So, my posture is a little off because I am focusing on my sins? I need to let Jesus relieve them? Okay, then, Jesus, I will now submit to blind faith, please cure me.
Peace.

BE HEALED!! *fireworks_god goes into a grand mal siezure, when he awakens his back is straight*


Hehe. I don't agree with him saying that our old preoccupations give us up. How can they do that? When you got tired of playing with dolls or cars, you just stopped playing with them, period. I don't see anything more than that.

Also his point about sin renouncing you is off. Who hasn't experienced or heard that sinning is/can be fun? Premarital sex, gossip, shrooms, pot, just to name a few, can all be very attractive to your everyday, average sinner. If, as a sign of conversaion, all of a sudden your old "sinful" habits became distasteful to you (I'm sure it does happen to some people, but I really don't think it's going to happen to everyone) and henceforth you lived a perfect life, then a LOT of the people in churches I've attended are going straight to hell. But I've heard that lots of times, too.

Unless he means that the IDEA of our "sins" becomes distasteful to us; otherwise I don't see his point.

There is no point, other than to lead people that are easily convinced and looking for the easy answer. Mentioning the cars and dolls thing, just sort of hooks them ("oh, I used to play cars"). I can't see how people could be so easily misled.
And my posture is getting better everyday, because I have consciously worked on it and paid attention to it. Most of the problems are now in my neck. Anyone battle bad posture here before?
Peace.

Yep, I've been trying to sleep on my back for awhile now... I usually end up rolling over, but I'm getting better at it. (helps with astral projections, blood flow, and not irritating your new tattoo hehe, etc)
My posture used to be extremely shitty; I can't believe how slumped over I was, stomach really hung out, too. VERY unattractive.
I basically have good posture now, though, the main problem is all the muscles that got too strong from unnaturally having to hold weight, and the ones that are too weak from not holding that weight. It makes it look like I don't have good posture. It was really took awhile to build up enough strength to continouslly stand up straight.
Jesus never helped, by the way. hehe
Peace.

with all of the spiritual knowledge jesus learned from his essene education I'm sure he had good posture... and I'm sure he passed this knowledge on to others... along with the knowledge of certain plants hehe...

Yeah, but his followers don't stop thinking about sin, then start thinking about him, and then their ailments are cured... Those who claim it, I am sure that Swami has a Challenge lined up for them..
Peace.

Thanks for the link. At first, it took a lot of effort to just do that much. I can do it now, but sometimes I forget and let go.. not very often anymore.
I like what he says, too, about your posture eitehr relfecting or shaping your feelings. You have a lot more energy with good posture, too (proably because you actually have room to breathe).
Peace.
