I, as a Christian, do solemnly swear not to say the following sentence on Sunday, February 2nd:
“Don’t you wish people were as excited about church as they are about the Super Bowl?”
I recognize that it is completely possible to both love church and enjoy football.
I understand that sports enthusiasm is not an affront to Jesus.
I could even see Samson being an amazing tight end similar to Gronk.
I subscribe to the belief that enjoying a football game on Sunday night does not prevent me from worshiping my savior on Sunday morning.
I admit that people in our country take sports too seriously, but refuse to believe that if someone uses body paint for a football game that is an opening to tell them the Romans Road.
I also admit that not a single person in the history of mankind has been converted when we Jesus Juke situations. Not once has someone said, “Tell me more about this Jesus” after you have ruined something they were enjoying by shaming them and saying, “I wish people cared as much about worship as they do about the Grammy’s.”
I agree to send this link to any friends or family members that try to turn a football game into a judgment jamboree. (The worst jamborees of all.)
I will also forgive them if they juke the day away.
I will sing loud in church.
I will cheer loud at football games.
