Stop Worshiping Sports = Final Days Report #52 at SJWellFire

Stop Worshiping Sports = Final Days Report #52 at SJWellFire

Dream about the Fake News, Bill Walton Going to Hell, and Men Needing to Worship God vs. Sports – Final Days Report

Must see video of Bill Walton mocking a Christian and a Co-host in the middle with a skeleton shirt of the Grateful Dead.   Symbolizes time to make a choice on your salvation.    We cover the evolution and Grand Canyon deception.

In the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible, there are several passages that highlight the concept of worshiping idols as being evil. Is Sports an Idol?   I’ve seen it with Christians.    Here are a few examples:

  1. Exodus 20:3-5a: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God…”

This passage is from the Ten Commandments given to Moses by God, and it emphasizes the exclusive worship of God and the prohibition against creating and worshiping graven images or idols.

  1. Leviticus 26:1: “Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God.”

This verse reiterates the commandment against creating and worshiping idols, emphasizing that it is the Lord God who is to be worshiped, and no other.

  1. Psalm 115:4-8: “Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.”

This passage from the Psalms highlights the futility of worshiping idols, which are lifeless and powerless objects made by human hands. It emphasizes that those who worship idols are like the idols themselves, devoid of true life and power.

When it comes to sports worship, some people may place an excessive amount of time, attention, and devotion to sports and athletes, treating them as idols or gods. This can manifest in various ways, such as prioritizing sports over other important aspects of life, excessively idolizing sports figures, or engaging in fanatical behavior that goes beyond healthy enthusiasm. From a spiritual perspective, such sports worship can be seen as a form of idolatry, where sports or athletes are given a place of undue reverence and devotion, taking precedence over the worship of God.

It is important to remember that according to the KJV scripture, worshiping idols or anything other than God is considered evil and goes against the teachings of the Bible. The focus of one’s worship and devotion should be directed towards God, as emphasized in various passages that highlight the exclusive worship of the Lord and the prohibition against creating and worshiping idols.  AICB  Is worshiping sport players and teams an issue with God?   I think So…

Here are some Bible verses from the King James Version (KJV) that speak to the importance of proving one’s faith, prioritizing a relationship with Christ, and keeping His commandments:

  1. John 14:15: “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

This verse is a direct statement from Jesus Himself, emphasizing that obedience to His commandments is a demonstration of love for Him. It underscores the importance of following and keeping Christ’s teachings and commandments as evidence of genuine faith and love for Him.

  1. Luke 6:46: “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”

This verse from Jesus’ teaching highlights the importance of not just professing faith in Him, but also living it out in action by obeying His teachings. It emphasizes the need for consistency between one’s words and actions as evidence of true faith in Christ.

  1. Matthew 7:21: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

In this verse, Jesus is teaching that mere verbal profession of faith is not enough to enter into the kingdom of heaven. It is the obedience to the will of God, which includes following Christ’s teachings and commandments, that demonstrates true faith and devotion to Him.

  1. Luke 14:26: “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.”

This verse may seem challenging at first, but it underscores the importance of prioritizing one’s relationship with Christ above all other relationships and worldly attachments. It emphasizes the need to love Christ above even family and personal interests, showing that He is to be the foremost and most cherished relationship in a believer’s life.

  1. Parable of the Wise and Foolish Builders – Matthew 7:24-27: This parable teaches the importance of building one’s faith on a solid foundation of obedience to Christ’s teachings. The wise builder is the one who hears Christ’s words and puts them into practice, while the foolish builder is the one who hears but does not obey. This parable emphasizes the importance of obedience as evidence of true faith and readiness for the challenges of life.

These verses highlight the significance of proving one’s faith and love for Christ through obedience to His commandments, prioritizing Him above all else, and aligning one’s actions with His teachings. They emphasize the need for consistency between one’s words and actions, and the importance of building a solid foundation of faith through obedience to Christ’s words, as illustrated in the parables.

Here are some additional Bible verses from the KJV that mention weeping and gnashing of teeth in the context of proving one’s faith and prioritizing a relationship with Christ:

  1. Matthew 13:42: “And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

In this verse, Jesus is describing the fate of the wicked who are separated from Him. It highlights the consequence of not prioritizing a relationship with Christ and obeying His commandments, which leads to eternal punishment. The phrase “wailing and gnashing of teeth” conveys the sorrow, regret, and anguish of those who did not prove their faith and did not prioritize Christ in their lives.

  1. Matthew 22:13: “Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

In this parable of the Wedding Feast, Jesus is illustrating the importance of being prepared and ready for His return. The servant who did not have the proper wedding garment was cast out, and the consequence was “weeping and gnashing of teeth.” This underscores the need for genuine faith, obedience, and readiness in order to avoid the sorrow and regret of not being prepared for Christ’s return.

These verses emphasize the sobering consequences of not prioritizing a relationship with Christ, obeying His commandments, and being prepared for His return. They highlight the seriousness of proving one’s faith and the importance of aligning one’s actions with Christ’s teachings, lest one face the sorrow and regret described as weeping and gnashing of teeth.  AICB
