Will I lose all my progress if I don’t exercise for 5 days?

heyyhey Asked: Will I lose all my progress if I don’t exercise for 5 days?

I'm going to Florida from Saturday to Thursday..I probably will not be able to exercise
I'm a 14 year old girl and I lift weights 3 days a week and take pilate classes 5 days a week.

I really want to maintain my weight, build muscle and maintain my fitness level..I'm afraid I will lose muscle on this trip…I can't bring dumbbells on the plane -.- I have a stretch band though..But It's nothing like weights..

Will I lose the progress that took me 2-3 years to get? I'm really strong and I have great stamina..I don't want to lose it!

No, you'll be fine not exersizing, but if you're super worried, then you can do tiny exersizes like crunches and whatnot when you have spare time. It's perfectly o.k. to take a break as long as you don't give up on exersize. 5 days is not that long at all…

There is historical documentation that Jesus existed, including an executioner order stamped by pontius pilut

I'm not reading that.If there was any proof of Jesus,it could easily be shown using a few sentences and a link to back it up.

It's well known the mentions of Jesus in the works of Josephus are forgeries. Take the rest of you rant elsewhere

Yes, the Master Jesus was and is a real person. You can read this account about his appearance during a series of talks which took place in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1948, where he overshadowed the speaker and spoke directly to the audience:

His words were recorded and transcribed then published in 1953 in the book, "Divine Healing of Mind and Body" by the healer/author Murdo MacDonald-Bayne.

First, it is not odd that writers who lived contemporary to Jesus did not write about Him. To the Romans, Judea was a backwater place and the Jews were beneath contempt, causing more trouble in this backwater than they were possibly worth. What occurred in Judea was simply not worth mentioning.

How many know who the mayor of Khe Sanh was in 1968? I can't find the answer on Google or Yahoo, even though we fought a major battle near the town where we and our allies lost over 1,500 men — 1,000 of the killed being American soldiers. Who can tell me who the governor of Alabama was in 1861, when the Confederate States of America formed their first government in Montgomery? Luckily, I can find the name — Andrew Moore — using an Internet search). But, even as a native of Alabama, I won't remember that name long past the conclusion of this answer. Why don't we know these names? Khe Sanh was a backwater to 1968 America even though there was a major battle going on around the air strip. No one cares who was the mayor of the little village the battle was fought over. Alabama is largely considered, even today, a rural backwater in the United States. No one really cares who the governor of Alabama is today (Robert Bentley, for those interested), much less who was the governor 150 years ago.

Further, there was really only one contemporary Roman writer whose writings survive who could have mentioned Jesus — Seneca. However, by the time that Christianity was being established in Rome, Seneca was involved in palace intrigues against Nero and was exiled and soon forced to commit suicide. There were certainly other writers contemporary with Seneca, and Jesus, but their writings did not survive the first century. Even the government documents sent by Pilate (Acts of Pontius Pilate) did not survive past one or two centuries. Surviving first-century Roman writings are so sparse that our information about the period comes primarily from second-century historians such as Tacitus and Suetonius. Moreover, even though scholars believe that Christian copyists later added to Josephus' Testimonium Flavianum, the majority of the passage, which testifies about His life, but omits details of His Deity, is original to Josephus.

So the argument that Jesus was fictional based on the lack of contemporary mention falls flat when we objectively look at the culture of Jesus' day and the extreme lack of first-century writings. The one writer who would have had reason to mention Jesus — Josephus — DOES write about Him and the one writer remaining from the period who does not mention Him would have no reason to mention a wandering preacher from a provincial backwater. However, as Christianity gains traction, we would expect an explosion of references regarding Jesus and we have that explosion as second-century historians testify to the historical reality of Jesus.

Secondly, in regard to Mithras… Yes, Christianity shares some similarities with Mithras and other Roman mystery religions. But, in regards to the similarities, there are three questions: are the similarities so general as to be shared by any religion (e.g. both Jesus and Mithra were traveling teachers — as were Buddha, Muhammad, Zoroaster and almost every other single person who established a religion. In a world devoid of television, radio and telephones, about the only way you could get your message out was to travel.); are the similarities more coincidental than not (e.g. Jesus was born of a virgin and was born as a baby; Mithra was born fully grown from a rock); and, when there are genuine similarities, who borrowed from whom?

The majority of the Bible was written prior to 70AD. Luke, for instance, was written prior to Paul's execution in 64 AD. We know this because Luke wrote both Luke and Acts as apologetics, with Acts being the second part of a two-part apologetic series. Luke closes Acts with Paul in Roman custody. Since Paul was executed in 64 AD, we know, then, that both Luke and Acts date prior to 64 AD. This, in turn, means that all of Paul's writings are penned before 64 AD. Also, Peter's writings were penned before 64 AD, since he mentions Paul's writings as Christian scripture. Further, since Luke, who researched his gospel, draws on both Matthew and Mark, Matthew and Mark must have been in existence prior to 64 AD. In other words, Christian theology was pretty much set by 64 AD.

Why is this important? The earliest mention of Mithra is in 67 AD. The earliest traces of the Roman Mithraic tradition come between 90 and 100 AD and the religion is not fully established in Rome, and it never becomes a "public" religion, supported by the state and Rome supported many religious traditions, but always remains a "private" religion, until the mid second century. It seems, then, from the timeline, that if anyone did any borrowing, it wasn't Christianity from Mithra, but Mithra from Christianity.
