Touchdown Theology

Does that pastor really think God is sitting up in Heaven on a Barcalounger, with a beer, a bratwurst and a Bronco’s jersey, handing out touchdowns? Do God and Jesus support the same team? And if not, then which team does the Holy Spirit work through?

Does Mary, the sports fan, sit glued to the heavenly television set while resentful Martha makes chicken wings and guacamole in the kitchen for the Disciples? During commercial breaks, does Jacob wrestle the angel for the remote?



Congratulations to Tebow and the Denver Broncos on their big win over the Steelers Sunday.  I like Tebow as an underdog story and his desire to be an athlete role model.  With Lillian Daniels, I wonder more about a church that gets more excited about touchdowns than tackling hunger.  Micah 6:8 is a good theological antedote.
