Yeah, where's the scriptural support that soccer partly represents an unraveling of the perfect world that God created? Right - I didn't think so.

Matt Adair

'In those times there was no peace to him who went out or to him who came in, for great disturbances afflicted all the inhabitants of the lands.' (2 Chronicles 15:5) Great disturbances = unruly soccer fans rioting because their precious team loses a gripping 1-0 goalfest.

'For they do not speak peace, but against those who are quiet in the land they devise words of deceit.' (Psalm 35:20) Words of deceit = trying to convince people that soccer is the real football.

'I was mute and silent; I held my peace to no avail, and my distress grew worse.' (Psalm 39:20) Distress = watching the world become consumed by 'Beckham-mania'

'The way of peace they do not know, and there is no justice in their paths; they have made their roads crooked; no one who treads on them knows peace.' (Isaiah 59:20) Crooked = Beckham bending kicks

'“Thus says the Lord: We have heard a cry of panic, of terror, and no peace.'(Jeremiah 30:5) GOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLL


Don't you have a sermon to work on?


Just read this article in The Leader. Good stuff, Matt. Thanks for feeding us!
