Kurt Warner Thanks Jesus

I just finished watching the Arizona Cardinals win the NFC Football Championship to make it into the Super Bowl. I’m not ordinarily a Cardinals fan, but I found myself rooting greatly for them due to the overt Christianity of their quarterback Kurt Warner.

During the victory presentation, when asked to comment on how he was feeling, Kurt’s first words were to “give thanks to his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ”. My thoughts then and there was that you can’t always tell a true Christian when they give God thanks for their success, but you can always tell a true Christian when they give Jesus thanks for their success. God bless you Kurt. You represent our Lord well. Go Cardinals.

Unfortunately that's so true that you can't always tell a real Christians by their saying 'God' because today people call anything god and are not always talking about GOD Almighty. You have the term used in other religions and in some of the new age so it's important as followers of Christ to be clear on who we are standing for.

That is why I no longer solely say I am a Christian. I say, I'm a Christian; a follower of Jesus Christ because even the word Christian has become something other than what it is for some people. They use it as some sort of fashion label as opposed to wearing it as a badge of humility and privilege.

Should true Christians be indulged in the pleasure of watching a football game on the Lord's holy day, Sunday?

We go to God's word,the Bible, for the answer.

ISAIAH 58 :13-14
13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Note: When god uses the words "hand" or "feet", it is a parabolic statement of "the will" of whoever the context refers.

God gets His glory from their worship. I happen to enjoy watching football (on Sunday or otherwise) all the while worshipping my God and the Lord Jesus Christ in whatever I do. Also, as a word of caution I will debate this issue with you no further on this thread. God Bless!

What I love about the LORD is that we can go to church on Sunday, read the Word, worship in spirit and in truth, sow, love on others and sing His praises and then...

come home cook dinner, watch a game if you'd like or read more Word, or visit with family, make some phone calls to people you love, etc...

You see it's the day of rest and after Church whatever you desire (including kicking back watching a game with your spouse) is restful.

Bless you.

Kurt is an inspiration to us all! May Jesus richly bless him with a full quiver.

A God who sends people to Hell?
