jesus and the super bowl
The world seemed to spin off its axis during the Super Bowl Halftime Show. It only took minutes for Facebook to be filled with rants and judgments disguised as sermons.
“I stopped watching and went to bed. Totally disgusted. I’m reminded that we (God’s children) are not of this world but belong to another world.”
“Women, please act like women, if you want to be treated like one.”
“The only word to describe what was shown was nasty.”
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Shout out to the First Amendment, am I right? So while these opinions are valid, I saw some discrepancies and major concerns with these remarks.
I hope all of this chatter about the Super Bowl Halftime Show reminds us that life is too short to spend our energy tearing others down and casting judgments on those who do not look like Jesus. I’m reminded of the perfect and loving posture of Christ, who welcomed every and all to the table, ate with sinners, and called them worthy.
