On watching the big game

Great stuff from C. J. Mahaney on how to watch the big game. I particularly loved his Tom Brady quote (FPC Hattiesburg people will hear it again): "Why do I have three Super Bowl rings and still think there’s something greater out there for me? I mean, maybe a lot of people would say, “Hey man, this is what is.” I reached my goal, my dream, my life. I think, “God, it’s got to be more than this.” I mean this isn’t, this can’t be what it’s all cracked up to be."

Also, this was a great piece in Christianity Today on thinking Christianly about sports. It is a bit depressing the way that our culture's approach to professional sports trickles down to how we treat our children and sports. Perhaps we've misplaced the general sense that these are "games" meant to lighten our hearts and strengthen our bodies. Our games cannot really and fully satisfy our hearts.

Wow... to the whole article. Lots to think on (especially for an avid football fan). Love this - "sport creatively structured and specifically crafted to express the joy of the faith."

The Bible is the book of the knowledge of good and evil. The KJV must be rightly divided 2 Tim 2:15 God's way Isa 28:9-10 and of his spirit to understand it.
God chose a woman to deliver Rev 12:5-6 the true word John 1:1, Acts 3:21-23 like unto Moses Deut 18:18 proving the power of God as Elijah Matt 17:3, Luke 1:17. The proof of what I tell you is in the hearing. If you love God with all your heart, soul and mind then obey God's word Matt 4:4 and prove ALL things 1 Thes 5:21.
Our heavenly Father will not put any child of his into a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer7:31, Jer 19:5. The witness is on these websites http://thegoodtale.blogspot.com., http://thegoodtale.wordpress.com. God only gives his Holy Spirit to those who obey him Acts 5:32. If you are not keeping his commandments his way you do not know him. The true Gospel is now delivered as a witness Matt 24:14.
