      I suspect I'd run out of steam by then....

      That would be more an endurance thing....

      Push ups (like chin ups) has to do with upper body strength, but it also has a lot to do with weight. Those weighing 250 pounds (even if mostly muscles) have a challenge moving all that (especially briskly). Skinny guys (and I might qualify a bit, lol) have a real advantage. But after awhile, it's more an issue of endurance than anything.... endurance strength is a different matter.
      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      Not at all. There's a twist in the text....

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      I'd hope I could do more than 5 in 15 minutes. I could definitely do between 5 and 600
