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.
Peter Shaw said… me everyday is the Lord's Holy Day. If one wishes to live their lives by a series of legalistic do's and don'ts in worship to God particularly on a Sunday, then wonderful. 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.

Funerals for the Unsaved or Unbelievers

I am not a leader of a church, but I oftentimes wonder how does one lead a funeral service for someone who dies without knowing Jesus Christ as Lord? Admittedly I have not been to many funerals in my lifetime, though they are appearing to come more frequently lately, but the fact is that funerals are held daily throughout the world and as such this is a pertinent question to someone just about every day.

I’ve been to the funeral where the person lived a fairly routine life, taking care of their families and other responsibilities as best they could, paying taxes and doing the average things that we as human beings do on a consistent basis. They however had no visible relationship with God through His son Jesus Christ. When this person dies, the surviving family members are oftentimes left scrambling trying to find a person and a place to officiate the funeral services – generally because the deceased did not have a regular church that they attended. Funeral homes sometimes serve this f…

Scripture: Are You a Wheat or Weed?

(Matthew 23: 24-30 NIV): Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ ‘‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ ‘‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

(Matthew 23: 36-43 NIV): Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” He answered, “The…

Hal Lindsay off TBN

Christian author and broadcaster Hal Lindsay removed his weekly Christian television news broadcast "The International Intelligence Briefing" from the programming lineup on The Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) after network officials notified him that his shows would now be subject to pre-screening for censorship prior to broadcast approval. This unusual step was the result of TBN’s disapproval of a Lindsay broadcast in December 2005, which the network said was too inflammatory towards Muslims.

I have reviewed the transcript of Mr. Lindsay's broadcast and I find nothing in it’s content that is not backed up by God’s scripture, nor did I find anything that would be considered overly zealous or purposefully sensational with respect to potential attacks on Muslims. To the extent that TBN, one of the most widely available Christian TV networks would take this position is quite incredulous. One of the reasons for the need for ‘Christian’ TV networks is to enable the presenta…
