Hollywood and NFL

I find it interesting how the NFL and now Hollywood with the exposure of this long time producer being revealed as a rapist coinciding with each other. I watch a little football and yes an occasional movie so I'm no CON picking on the aforementioned at an opportune time.

Having said that I think it is a bit food for thought that maybe God is saying I'll take two of the most entertaining aspects of society and completely turn it upside down. In time it will all pass everything will most likely return to status quo but for now it is a bit thought provoking.

People don't need football as an excuse to not worship the Lord. Besides, most NFL games do not happen at times when most Americans who would go to church would be at church.

I don't want to see the NFL vaporize. I like football!

I like college football. I don't like the NFL. And this pre-dates the anthem protests. It's more to do with these players getting paid obscene amounts of money to play a game and them acting like prima donnas; refusing to join their training camps, because they're holding out over their contracts. Self promotion and just too much drama.

Anything which comes between a person and God is an idol. This is not limited to any one sport.

Sports has become our societies religion.
I still like to play sports, however I have become disgusted with the worship of sports and sports figures.

Yes, modern day idolatry.

Just like Rome and it's gladiators etc....



22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
