According to Janet Medford, The Christian Post shared an article of churches that changed their service times to accomodate the Superbowl. I’m not surprised considering the Christians who drink too much and call in sick to work the next day because of a hangover; or people who are calling for the Superbowl to be a national holiday. It’s just a game--an event only the moderately wealthy can afford with borderline half time shows that, in the past, have been controversial.
“We know the game is important so we’re moving the service times to better fit your schedule,” says the megachurch, which canceled Saturday night services at four locations and won’t have night services at all on Sunday. “This will allow us to reach more people that week and give you more opportunities to invite your friends and family,” it adds.”
My husband is a baseball fan, not a football fan. I’m not a fan of sports, but attend to support my husband. However, I do believe a healthy love of sports is okay, but when we turn anything into an idol it’s wrong. It’s just football. It’s just a game. It’s great that you enjoy it, but it doesn’t need to be a national holiday and you should be responsible enough to use vacation time the next day; or don’t drink on Superbowl so you can respect your employers the following day by showing up, ready to do the job they pay you to do.
On a side note, I guess this is a good argument for morning services.
