from Yahoo News:

"CrossFit is a workout philosophy, a brand, and a network of affiliated gyms. It’s also a subculture that, with its manic friendliness and clan-like vibe, carries a whiff of cultishness.

"Browse the digital pages of our nation’s finest periodicals, and you can read about the cult (or is it more like a church?) of Crossfit, that attracts “Painiacs” who have either joined an ordinary conditioning program or a bona-fide cult ..."

Benevolent + taskmaster = wow factor

 

That's like saying "tyrannical Holy God" or "merciful Satan"

Even Rick Warren jumped on the band wagon! I am not against exercise, but the rush you get from it should not be a substitute for a relationship and worship of Almighty God. Nothing against Christians getting together to exercise, but we already have enough christians desiring to get lost in worship to feel good, or who help the poor to feel good. Love of God and of others sometimes gets left out of the mix. I can't see that exercise is a form of worship or of serving others. It is just another form of serving self.
