I have come across many Christians who can give chapter and verse on any football issue you care to mention.

But, they can’t do the same for scripture.

When football is this important to you, you have lost your ability to discern what is, and is not, an idol.

Recently, many ads on TV claim football is ‘very important’ and is about ‘more than the game’.

If Christians believe this and place football at the fore of their minds and hearts, then they have created an idol that comes before God and their spiritual lives.

BEWARE... if you do this you have made an own-goal!

God will not tolerate this kind of idolatry. If you want your life to continue without God’s presence, then continue.
