Sports stars praising God

Recommended Posts

I was watching the UFC today, the main event was a match between Robert Whittaker and Yoel "soldier of god" Romero.  Yoel, like so many sports stars, praised god for getting him to where he was and the classic "through god all things are possible".  Whittaker kicked his ass becoming the first Kiwi/Ozzie UFC champ.  In a post fight interview Yoel said "it was gods plan, I follow his will". So win or lose they still praise god.

I heard one bishop say "God doesn't care what sports you play, if you win the victory was due to your hard work. Be proud of your achievements". So at least some Christians have it straight.

Previously there was a fight between a Muslim and a Christian.  The Muslim won and he was sure Allah had made him strong... proving god via punching someone in the face until they stop moving.

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...

Yeah, that's one of my pet peeves!
