The other day I was in Wal-mart and saw something very disturbing. It was a cross with the NFL logo on it. They had used two different types of drink boxes to make the cross with the logo.
I often wonder if Football has not become and idol for many people. They talk about football more than Jesus. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. (Matthew 12:35). Therefore, you are going to talk about that which you love. Anything that you place about God is an idol. Some people would rather stay home from church on Superbowl Sunday. That sounds an awful lot like they are placing football before God.
I do not think it is wrong to play football or watch football. However, we need to be careful that football does not come between God and us. It would be a shame to must out on the blessings of God because we are too busy watching football to go to church, witness, or read the Bible.
Is Football becoming an Idol
