The Place of Christians in Sports

Justin Taylor offers a couple of perspectives of the proper role for Christians in competitive sports. Interesting, although it’s to the disadvantage of the the “con” position that it’s offered by noted presidential pants-admirer David Brooks.

I personally don’t see any problem with Christians participating in competitive sports. I don’t want to imagine a world where Tim Tebow has to direct all that enthusiasm into origami or learning the cello.

  1. David Brooks says, “But there’s no use denying — though many do deny it — that this ethos violates the religious ethos on many levels. The religious ethos is about redemption, self-abnegation and surrender to God.”

    What the heck does this have to do with playing a game? Ignorant, ignorant article.
