Off-topic: Climbers who believe in Jesus

In a similar vein to the long-running motorcycle thread but perhaps more pertinent, I'd like to start a discussion about climbers who follow Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

I find that when I'm run-out high above small gear that my thoughts inevitably turn to the One True Lord (OTL). Just picturing his kindly face - that aquiline nose and flaxen hair - and flowing robes often allows me to pull moves that I'd otherwise thought myself incapable. You could call it monoing and heel-hooking for Jesus.

Does anyone else draw their cllimbing strength from OTL - as well as caffeine and campusing off course. LOL.

Peace.

I'm a terrible, back slidden, reluctant, heathen believer from way back and i often find myself praising during the crux.

When it comes to staying alive on on the sharp end, I would much rather turn to the writings of a particular Chockstoner then anything from Jesus and the Bible.

Thus I would re-write the above quote as follows...

I find that when I'm run-out high above small gear that my thoughts inevitably turn to the One Day Hero (ODH). Just picturing his kindly face...

I "dear god!" and "jesus christ!" all the time whilst climbing. I also yell "b*tch" quite a bit too.


I think he likes it.

......and I shall not abandon my flock in their time of need. I will hear their prayers and I will come to them, I will comfort them with my words of peace and hope.........

"You got yourself into this mess, dipshit! Now you get yourself the f*** out of it! What's that? You don't like this situation which you find yourself in? Well, tough titties, princess! Maybe you oughta think about finding yourself another f***ing sport! I hear the badmington a**eclowns are running a recruiting drive, not too much risk of getting strung out in that f**king game! Stop polluting my beloved cliffs with your p***y f***ing whining, and stop ****** up an activity which is sposed to involve a bit of ********-****!

I believe in Jesus. I've seen too many lebs who think they are god to not believe there was a leb 2000 years ago with low self esteem who thought he was only the son of god.

My question is, If you could raise from the dead, and where that good at healing. Would you bother using a rope ? (Maybe we should ask Mike)

As the OTL said at the Last Supper: “One of you will belay me”.

The Via Dolorosa was a gnarly route.

The crux was definitely the cross.

you stupid arrogant confused little monkeys

for it is written in red dwarf

Kryten: But of course you do! For is it not written in the electronic bible, "The Iron shall lie down with the lamp." It's common sense sir, if there weren't a better life to look forward to, why on earth would machines spend the whole of there lives serving human kind? - Now that would be really dumb!

Lister : Yeah it makes sense. Yeah. Silicon Heaven(!)

Kryten: Don't be sad, Mr David sir. I am going to a far, far better place.

Lister: Just out of interest, is Silicon Heaven the same place as human Heaven?

Kryten: Human Heaven? Goodness me! *laughs* Humans don't go to Heaven! No no, someone just made that up to prevent you from all going nuts!

Apparently he might not have been a carpenter but possibly a stone mason. the word for carpenter was translated incorrectly.
