Moses was at least 80 years old when he received the 10 Commandments.
Since he broke the first stone tablets out of anger (golden calf sight), he had to get back on the mountain to get a second pair. Can you imagine how strong he was!
Jesus was not the effeminate looking man that most images reveal Him as. He was a carpenter and carpenters in those days not only worked with wood, they worked with stones. They had no power tools of course so the wood had to be cut by using hand tools and great physical labor which must have took long, tedious hours to work with. The wood was not like what we see today; two by fours or four by sixes. They worked with large timbers of roughhewn wood. These timbers had to be cut down by hand and they had to be sawed down into workable sections. They had to be debarked and sanded. And carpenters in those days worked with stone more than they did wooden beams. And these stones were just not simple stepping stones or mortar bricks but more like boulders and these boulders had to be chiseled and cut down to size.
Every bit of the carpenters work was extremely labor intensive and so we should realize that Jesus had to have been a big, strong man with great physical strength, yet He kept this strength under control in what is a good description of meekness: Strength under control. So we see that Jesus was a man's man and may have had the body of a heavy construction worker. He must have been an imposing physical specimen. (<well noticed by Jack Wellman) It's not likely that he had long hair either.

A word on Gluttony
Philippians 3:19 Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
Treating your body as a dumpster is disrespectful to God and yourself. Do not be a lazy sluggard (Proverbs 13:4) nor hypocrite by criticizing others (Matthew 7:3) because you think your sin is smaller.
Your body is the temple of your soul, not a garbagecan.
Fasting and Eating Healthy
Fasting is not only recommended for spiritual effect but also because it is very healthy for the body. Real fasting: not eating after a few hours and then fast again. That is not fasting.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

In 1863 James Jackson, a christian as well, invented granula, for a while only, ready-to-eat grain-based breakfast product. Did you know that the founder of Quaker Oats.. was also a christian? His name is Henry Parsons Crowell.
The medical doctor and health-food evangelist John Harvey Kellogg was the foremost proponent of vegetarianism in the United States. Kellogg promoted vegetarianism as part of a philosophy of "biologic living" that also required adherents to avoid alcohol and tobacco and to exercise vigorously. source

Fuelled By Plants
The claims that a vegan diet makes for inferior athletes with corresponding inferior performances is blatantly & provably false. Even the animal kingdom bears witness to how herbivores are amazingly fast, display superior endurance, and undeniably strong.Other than carnivorous cheetahs, the fastest terrestrial animals are herbivores-pronghorns, springboks, and various gazelles. At 60 mph North America's pronghorns are second only to cheetahs, but various African gazelles are within a mile per hour to them but well ahead of lions and their 50 mph potential. For endurance, herbivores who more often than not outlast cheetahs and their quarter-mile limits on their superior ~70 mph speed once they are eluded long enough to tire and give up the chase. North America's pronghorns can sustain speeds of 40 mph and faster for miles and easily outdistance cougars, wolves, coyotes, and the few other carnivores who are capable of impressive speed and endurance (this does not include the cougar).For strength, rhinoceroses and elephants as well as other large herbivores are not wimpy herbivores by any stretch of the imagination. Mountain gorillas, who are 97% herbivorous, are the strongest of all primates,
vastly more so than humans.
In fact most primates are over 90% plant-based in their species-wide diets. Additionally, outside of many humans, not a single species of animals continues to consume the lactation of their own mothers much less than that of other species, like too humans unnaturally do, in order to grow "big and strong"-exhibit A: elephants, giraffes, rhinoceroses, and "lions & tigers & bears! Oh, my!" LOL!This post demonstrates that the minority but growing numbers of human athletes who choose and maintain a vegan (aka, herbivorous) diet prove that eating exclusively from plants and other non-animal sources is not a detriment at all but in fact is an advantage for them.

"I don't care what someone else eats. I really do have better things to do with my time than to concern myself with the food that others choose to consume.
However, I do care WHO someone else eats. Other sentient, soulful beings who are imprisoned, abused, and then killed, often while still children, are an enormous concern of mine. They are not food any more than a puppy or a kitten is food. Food grows from the earth, it isn't born, it doesn't have a mother, and it doesn't scream in fear in a slaughterhouse, or wail in despair when it's children are taken away to be killed.

Cat gets bovine tuberculosis from offal
(Netherlands, 2023, source) RIVM and the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) have diagnosed bovine tuberculosis in two indoor cats for the first time in the Netherlands. The cats, a kitten and the mother cat, did not survive the infection. Bovine tuberculosis can also infect humans, but the cats' owners have not become infected. Anyone who has been in contact with the cats is now preventively monitored by the GGD.
In 2021, RIVM counted 680 cases of tuberculosis in the Netherlands, three-quarters of the patients were immigrants and asylum seekers.
Since they were indoor cats, the route of contamination is likely to have been their food. The cats were not given canned food but raw offal. RIVM and NVWA are investigating where the offal came from and where it is sold further.
Paul Overgaauw, veterinarian and microbiologist at Utrecht University, has "no idea" where the raw offal (frozen throats, necks, organs and udder tissue of various animals) that pet shops and supermarkets sell come from. "Nothing has been regulated by law, there are no guidelines and there is no supervision," he says in Trouw. "The information on the packaging often turns out to be incorrect, as we have previously established."
Slaughterhouse waste from the Netherlands is TB-free, says Overgaauw. But in other countries 'game' is simply processed in animal feed. Then there may be contaminated venison in the mix of rabbits, deer, turkeys, cattle and pigs. In 2016, for example, a consignment of hare offal was intercepted in the port of Rotterdam. "It contained a bacterium that causes brucellosis, a contagious infectious disease among farm animals, which can also jump to humans and is then called Malta fever," says Overgaauw.
Overgaauw uses the case to argue for canned and dry food that is healthy and balanced. You really shouldn't want to give that raw meat to your pet. "It harbors a range of bacteria, including salmonella. And it is also a one-sided diet with only animal proteins, often without fiber or calcium."

'The lead researcher, Bradley C. Johnston, said he was not required to report his past relationship with a powerful industry trade group.

But what the study didn't say is that its lead author has past research ties to the meat and food industry.

Despite a ban in the EU, we (unnoticed) eat more battery eggs
Unnoticed, the Dutch have started eating much more eggs from battery cages. They are not sold separately in the supermarket, but are included in, for example, pasta, biscuits, mayonnaise and other sauces. This while the European Union has been banning the notorious, animal-unfriendly battery cage for more than ten years. Although there has been a ban in the EU for years, battery cages are still quite normal in Ukraine, which is not a member of the EU. Importing eggs from there has become a lot cheaper since the war, because the EU abolished the import tariff for Ukraine as a support measure. Read more, source 2023

2019 - Humans Are Not Designed To Eat Meat - Leading Microbiome Scientist Explains
Humans creating a Frankenbeast to feed the masses. More money out of fewer animals!
Of course, this is a nightmare for the animals. The enlarged muscles of both the mother and baby leads to increased difficulty during birth and therefore the frequent need for C-Sections. This is a dangerous situation for both animals. Add to that the fact that the infants' tongues are so enlarged (the tongue is a muscle and is also affected by the "double muscling" defect) that they have great difficulty feeding (if they're even allowed to nurse; the milk from these animals is said to be superior so none for baby!). These animals have a high mortality rate, but who cares about that when there's money to be made? (source)

'The rainforest is cut for soya for vegans'
The fact is that rainforests disappears for soy plantations. So the first part of the argument we debunk in this article is true.
Much rainforest is destroyed - often set on fire - to make way for agriculture. This is happening on a massive scale, especially in South America in the Amazon. Deforestation is hardest there: every 15 seconds, a piece of rainforest the size of a football field disappears. Worldwide, deforestation is even greater: 16 million hectares of forest disappear every year. In terms of area, this is four times the Netherlands. In addition to making way for agriculture, this also happens because wood generates a lot of money, to make way for mining and for other reasons. Often, just like in the Amazon, agriculture is the main driving force behind deforestation. In the Amazon, agriculture mainly means growing soy. Soy is a valuable export product.
Soy cultivation takes up more than 100 million hectares worldwide. That is the same size as France, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands combined
SOY USED ESPECIALLY FOR LIVESTOCK
The fallacy in the argument that we debunk here is that soy plantations mainly grow soy for the soy products that vegans consume.
Only 6% of global soy production is used for products such as tofu and other meat substitutes, soy milk and other vegetable products. Three quarters of global soy production is used as animal food. Most soy consumption is therefore indirect: people 'consume' soy, because they eat animal products that come from animals that have eaten soy.
If you count this indirect consumption, the average European consumes 61 kg of soy per year. More than 90% of this is indirect soy in animal products.
The following list of green is the new black shows how much soy is required for the 'production' of various animal products:
100 grams of chicken fillet = 109 grams of soy
1 egg (approx. 55 grams) = 35 grams of soy
100 grams of salmon = 59 grams of soy
100 grams of hamburger = 46 grams of soy
100 grams of cheese = 25 grams of soy
In addition, the consumption of animal products is in any case much less sustainable. Besides soy, a lot of other food and water is needed. It is much more efficient to eat plants than to feed animals first and then eat those animals. The figure above shows this clearly. Of all the land used for agriculture worldwide, 80% is used directly or indirectly (for the production of animal feed) for livestock farming.
If you're concerned about rainforest destruction and all the problems associated with it - such as biodiversity loss and climate change - the best thing to do is opt for a plant-based diet. (source)
