Funguy,
Are you serious or are you just pretending to be the Angry Son in the story of the Prodigal Son?

 
 I dont think he is pretending, I think he IS. He cant see how God can possibly like/love/accept/adore larger people because he doesnt. ::shrug::

This thread's topic of choice is nothing more than condemnation, and doesn't belong in this forum.

Romans 8:1
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

The Bible never mentions the size of people as far as I remember

The only one I can think of is Eglon. See Judges 3.

Abraham was. So was the guy who fed the prophets hiding in the cave. His widow got the miracle of the oil in jars by Elisha. (Fell off stool & broke his arm).

Can fat people enter the Kingdom of Heaven?

Of course, as long as they lose the weight before they die! ::smile::

Who's Getting Fatter?

Make no mistake: the dread obesity epidemic that is everywhere in the news is not restricted to any race, creed, ethnicity or slice of the socioeconomic supersized pie. As recent studies reveal, virtually every group known to demography is getting fatter.

The poor are getting fatter and the well-to-do are getting fatter. The old are getting fatter, baby boomers and Generation Xers are getting fatter, children too young to have a category are really getting fatter. People are broadening abroad as well — in Europe, Australia, South America, Africa, Russia, the Middle East. Asians once seemed blessed with magic anti-adipose devices, but they, too, are getting fatter.

Even in the poorest nations, where hunger and famines are still part of the landscape, obesity rates are climbing. In 10 percent of the families in Indonesia, for example, there can be found both undernourished and overnourished people living in the same household.

"Obesity has become so rampant that there is no group in the population left unaffected," said Dr. Kelly D. Brownell, a professor of psychology and epidemiology at Yale. "The prevalence of obesity is rising in everybody."

Dr. Barry M. Popkin, a professor of nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, said, "The obesity epidemic is international in scope, and it's very, very scary." Scary, because obesity is associated with an array of diseases and disorders, familiar killers like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke and cancer and chronic miseries like osteoarthritis, infertility, fibroids, gastrointestinal problems and sleep disturbances.
