The Christian Olympics

August 19, 2016

Many people are watching the summer Olympics and cheer on their favorite person or team. The Bible has a lot to say about the Christian life being like a sports activity, however, does not endorse the Olymics as  they honored false gods. Wrestling, boxing, racing, archery just to name a few sporting events mentioned in the Bible. Are you in the Christian race?
2 Timothy 2:5, Philippians-3-14, 1-Corinthians-9-24 &25

Hebrews 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
