Fanatiker des Sports

Shirl James Hoffman meint, dass sich viele Christen der Sportkultur unterworfen haben und mahnt, auch die Versuchungen in der Welt des Leistungssport ernst zu nehmen:

Let Christian athletes, mindful of sport’s temptation to pride, shun victory celebrations and consider whether the gospel’s spread is well served by on-field prayers, religious gestures, and post-game testimonies. Cheap advertisements of the faith embedded in the cheap milieu of big-time sports smack of cheap grace. Let’s scrap the tired images of Christ as coach or Christ as a teammate who is always on our side. It seems to me that hot sporting blood has a much better chance of being leavened when Christ is envisioned as one’s opponent.
