The Sunday Ticket: Focusing on Christ to Penetrate the Love Affair with Sports
Our culture celebrates sporting events more than church. America chooses to show more loyalty to teams than God, and this has shaped their lives around games instead of the Word. Sports are not an evil activity. However, anything can be dangerous when used too much because it makes a god out of it. This puts in danger a person’s spiritual well-being. God says to glorify him with our actions and praise him in all activities we take part in. This thesis study will look further at the current mixing of religion and athletics today in America, the impact society has made on Americans by elevating sports, sometimes even over religion, and demonstrate how our churches can use the current cultural atmosphere to its advantage as an evangelism tool to share the truth of Christ crucified.
