    Fake-news sites targeted by larger media outlets 

    Google, Twitter, and some traditional news media outlets are targeting what they call fake-news sites in an attempt to refuse them access to, or accounts in, their services. Twitter is shutting down numerous accounts of people they accuse of conspiracy theories and alt-right positions. Facebook has for some time been accused of tweaking their algorithms to give preference to left-wing news media.

    If ever there was a time when news organizations pretended to maintain neutrality and objetivity, it has long passed.

    Christians, of all people, nurture a special place in their hearts for truth—not only biblical truth, but truth in all its aspects and facets. (More …)

    Bodily exercise anyone? Or is it all godliness in your schedule? 

    For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.” (1 Timothy 4:8)

    My secular job has an exercise program with a little monetary incentive for those successfully complete it. For those who wish to participate, a meeting is held once in the spring and once in the fall to give participators an opportunity to meet certain criteria (based on age and sex, unless you compete in the “top-tier” 5 for 5 program which is based on across the board standards) that achieves certain physical standards by meeting a minimum number of completed exercises and physical fitness related challenges.

    For example, if you choose to participate in the 5 for 5 challenge, you must have a vertical jump of at least 14 inches, you must bench-press 78% of your body weight one time, you must do 25 push-ups in 60 seconds, you must do 30 sit-ups in 60 seconds, and you must run 1 ½ miles in less than 15 minutes and 54 seconds.

    There is another test that allows you to complete 2 or 3 of the 4 challenges that includes a certain number of sit-ups and push-ups in a minute based on age and sex, a flexibility test (sit-reach extending a certain number of inches) based on age and sex, and a certain amount of time (again based on age and sex) to walk a mile.

    I have personally participated in both categories. This year I participated in the 5 for 5 challenge…of which there is one exercise that I sincerely despise.

    So the question is preachers and readers alike, do you follow any personal exercise program or is it all godliness for you?

      Swimming three times a week. I picked back up a few months ago. Sitting all day is a killer.

    What makes for spiritual health? Exercising towards godliness, according to 1 Timothy 4:8 and 1 Timothy 6:6.
