"Sports Fanatics"

An article from "Christianity Today" (online) about 'how Christians have succumbed to the sports culture—and what might be done about it.'

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind...." Romans 12:2

"Dear children, keep yourselves from idols." -- 1 Jn.5:21

I believe recreation and sports can have a very valid, enjoyable place in the life of a Christian... but that doesn't mean that it's not possible for sports to get significantly out of proportion when it comes to the time, energy, expense and interest invested....

See what you think, after reading this worthwhile article.

I found this article to be very thought provoking. As men, if we were to ask ourselves these questions from this article, how would our priorities in life change? Priorities with our recreational time, our me time,and our family time?
For a supporting view and other questions concerning sports and our role and involvement in see " The Reason for Sports" by Ted Kluck
