I really don't get into sports, and I really don't get into pastor endorsing sports. I think the negatives of sports far out-weigh any positives. I've known of far too many people personally who lament their chronic, life-long physical pain and disability that resulted from sporting events played during their youth. If Christian kids need a good physical outlet, instead of stupidity involving throwing a small ball around, why don't they build a house for someone in need, or find some other outlet to use their energy, other than blasting out a kneecap while throwing an inflated ball through a hoop?
More on this later, but this post just had me thinking (and blogs that don't allow comments invariably have me leaving my goofy thoughts here instead.)
