How many people are backslidden and play competive sports?
This writer of this poll sounds familiar.
LOL @Kildare, Oh man I need to go back and change my response to YOUR poll, ban him now! How are you this morning?
Grand Mark, except for these guys trying to sort us all out. Sad thing is they would be shocked if they knew that I use the same Bible they use and hold most of the same standards of personal separation. But, they do tempt me to change .
After what I've heard/seen of that ungodly super-toilet-bowl, I'd be ashamed to admit I had anything to do with sports!
When we raised our 6 children, none participated in the worldly sports & we were hounded to death because of our 'lack of love'...even been told recently, "well, if you'd just let them sow a few wild oats, blah, blah, blah"....
granny, an offscoured
I will admit to playing golf - and it is very hard to be a christian after one of my many errant shots! I have seen more than one minister shave a stroke or two off the ol scorecard, or apply a foot wedge when needed.
But you do realize that Paul must have competed in competitive sports or at least been a fan of running!
Perhaps you could enlighten us as to where you found Scripture to back up your idea!
Dan - I'm waiting!
This poll is an example
of foolish jesting.
While you are here, consider this:
Most people i've talked to really don't
understand "in the name of Jesus".
Most think somehow you gotta say
the name "Jesus" somewhere.
I learned what "in the name of Jesus"
meant long time ago. My supervisor had
to leave for a week or so. He let
me be the supervisoer. I could even
sign stuff in the name of the supervisior,
issue orders in the name of the supervisor,
etc. I learned before the second time
i was in that position that when
i acted in the name of th supervisor
i'd better make real sure i knew
exactly what the supervisor would and
would not sign, what the supervisor would
order done and would not order done.
So "in the name of the supervisor" really
became an exercise in knowing exactly what
my supervisor would do were he there.
"In the name of Jesus" then means I must
know exactly what Jesus would do and
do it for Him. So i like the W.W.J.D. movement
for it means "What Would Jesus Do"
so it is exactly opoerating "in the name
Like my mama used to say, "Forrest, stupid is as stupid does."
Baptist1611AV whoever proves the point.
I'm not laughing.
This is yet another of those polls without the options which would include most of us. And there's no such thing as a "1611 KJV". The British Bible published that year was the Authorized Version of 1611. The "KJV" handle came later for one of its revisions.
Wow, this totally throws out the window the idea that God gave some people the gift of athletic ability so they could use it for His service. Granted, not all do, but I have seen plenty of athletes that use their abilities to share Christ and give Him the praise.
