Climbing for Christ seems like a really cool organization. I'd like to get involved with something like that. Climbing for me is like a form of worship. Every time I get out there is a moment when I have to stop and just say "thank you." Thanks for posting up and letting others know.

no. just brainwashed.

If you don't agree with our religion, then just please stay out of the thread. OK?

Jesus may love you, but his heavenly father has a few other words for you:

If your brother, the son of your father or of your mother, or your son or daughter, or the spouse whom you embrace, or your most intimate friend, tries to secretly seduce you, saying, "Let us go and serve other gods," unknown to you or your ancestors before you, gods of the peoples surrounding you, whether near you or far away, anywhere throughout the world, you must not consent, you must not listen to him; you must show him no pity, you must not spare him or conceal his guilt. No, you must kill him, your hand must strike the first blow in putting him to death and the hands of the rest of the people following. You must stone him to death, since he has tried to devert you from Yahweh your God...

-Deuteronomy 13:7-11

Anyone into Yoga or Buddhism had better watch their backs when sharing a crag with those Climbers for Christ types... unless, of course, they're just poser, a la carte Christians who find it a tad inconvenient to buy into the Bible's more challenging teachings.

To hell with religion.

This is the ultimate Troll - done not just for self-gratification but for raising everyone's awareness for what the OP thinks is Right. And having a bunch of flies get stuck in the honey increases the publicity.

Does it go up to T11??

Jesus, not another one of these loser trolls. This sort of thing sucks to high heaven. If jesus wants to come out, rope up, and pay his dues like the rest of us fine, otherwise this sort of thing is just blows. You're welcome, but leave your damn religion at home or in the trunk where it belongs. F#ck and these are same clueless folks that bitch about radical Islam...

Climb for Christ???

How about "do something to better your community, society, or mankind for your prophet"? But climb for Christ? ...that's just stupid.

We'll stay out of your Christian thread when you Christians stay out of our children's education, our private sex lives, vital medical research, and every other facet of our lives. "OK?"

To all the climbers out there that love the Lord,
give me a pm, and we can talk about getting a list
going of fellow Christian climbers, who would like to get together
and do some climbing, or just to talk to one another.

A couple of years back, I ran into "Solid Rock - Climbers for Christ" at the Pinnacles, Discovery Wall. They had top-ropes set on every route not 5.10 or harder. (That's about 15 routes.) They weren't even climbing most of them.

So I asked if I could pull their ropes 'cuz I wanted to lead. They said no. I asked if I could climb on their ropes. They said, "OK, but you'll have to join us in prayer first." I noticed another group in a prayer circle, asking God to protect them on their TR.

I proceeded to grab all the rope bags and backpacks I could and toss them into the poison oak bushes nearby. When they ran to try to stop me, my wife started pulling their ropes and throwing those into the poison oak, too.

Then they were all nicey-nice. "You can climb on our ropes after all." Yeah. Right. As if.

Fuck you. Fuck Solid Rock. Fuck anybody who tries to push their misguided idealogy on others in this way. If you try, don't be surprised when you get a reaction like mine.

My church is the rock itself, and the Valley is my Vatican. My faith is in myself, my partner, and my rope.

I climb to escape from your bull shit. Keep it to yourself.

Thomas Paine's "The Age of Reason" is an interesting attack on Christianity. It argues that it is derived from heathen mythology. I recommend reading it.

So if i voluntarily stay away from Christ, Satan will have no interest in me? Looks like a great course of action.....

So if someone starts an Islamic fundamentalist climbing group you will defend that one to? Hope so cause you just stuck your neck out for the Christians rights.

Hi - if you personally want to climb for Christ, great, more power to you.

But as far as missions go, please don't tell other people what and how to believe. It's embarassing and demeaning for everybody involved. I couldn't even imagine someone going to Thailand to climb and telling those great people with their fantastic culture who to pray to.

Seriously.

Sensitive issue. This is the reason why I moved it to Mods and Eds. We decided to send it back to East Coast and watch it closely. But it's going tough. I can't delete or edit each inflammatory post.
Moved to Community.

gee thanks. Now it (really)opens it up to all the flamers out there. At least now PTC might show up. move it back to the east coast where it belongs. Thats where the people the OP intended it for will see it. They wanted climbers from their region to see and join their group of like-minded climbers. They will never see it in community. Taking your mod job too far imho
