Let me first say that I enjoy football, and I enjoy watching games after church on SONday. I also love our country and I’m thankful to everyone who has sacrificed their lives, comfort and convenience for my freedom. But, most of all, I love God!
Since so many are judging other Americans as unpatriotic because they support the peaceful protest of kneeling during the national anthem, I have a few questions only for the Christians who feel taking a knee is disrespectful…
Which should be MORE sacred to a Christian?
Worshiping on the Lord’s Day.
Going to a football game.
Which should be more offensive to a Christian?
Not standing for the national anthem.
Skipping church and going to a football game.
Both were great sacrifices, but which sacrifice was GREATER?
Those who died for our freedom?
Jesus dying for our sins?
Which is in the bible?
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25)
all other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart; (US Code)
Which do you think God considers more offensive?
Choosing a ball game over going to church.
STANDING for the national anthem at that ball game.
Which did Jesus rebuke the Pharisees for?
Putting their traditions before God’s word?
Their patriotism to the nation of Israel?
What did Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah (Shadrach, Meschach and Abed-Nego) do when it was considered PATRIOTIC to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s golden image when the music began to play?
They did what the national law required.
They were thrown in the fiery furnace for refusing.
If God doesn’t consider kneeling before Him disrespectful, why should we?
Does God consider choosing a game before Him on the Lord’s day disrespectful?
For those of you who worship on Saturday, simply change the day from SONday to Saturday, and game from professional to college and answer the same questions.
It’s interesting how people can justify…
Putting a game before God…
Working seven days a week, or working on the Lords day…
But, can’t tolerate what they consider to be unpatriotic.
Faith before Family…
Faith before Race…
Faith before Nation…
If you can’t disagree with this post without anger or insults, quite frankly, you need to read your bible.
Even God humbles Himself to reason with us…
Isaiah 1:18 (NKJV)
“Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be as wool.
So let this post begin a conversation for reasoning with one another.
This is dedicated to all those who fought and fight for our country and appreciate the right to peaceful protest. Their opinion matters too.
