Dallas-area churches hope to capitalize on Super Bowl Sunday
Doubt the clout of the Super Bowl? Consider that First Baptist Church of Dallas is taking the rare step of canceling Sunday evening worship so members can gather and watch the game.

With the Feb. 6 extravaganza in nearby Arlington, the Rev. Robert Jeffress decided to open the church for young people to have a Super Bowl watching party and to encourage other members to stay home for their own such events.

But First Baptist also will give its members DVDs to play at halftime, promoting preaching at the church the following Sunday by former Florida State University football coach Bobby Bowden. ...

No I'm not implying that. I know that it's just a building and that the christians are the church. I still think that skipping a church service where someone could potentially be saved for a football game is pathetic. Who wants to listen to a serman at half time! I wouldnt want to. How can the holy spirit work in an atmosphere like the super bowl??

Hey D-Wayne I realize you may not understand this but you and I are saying the exact same thing in a different way period,end of story

Perhaps as River posted it could have been said better.

I fully believe that's the message this "church" is sending to the people,the super bowl is more important than God.But having some type of Christian outreach video played during the halftime show is their justification.

The annual NFL spectacle known as "Superbowl" attracts billions of TV viewers. Being held,unsurprisingly, on a Sunday Evening each year many professing Christians (including Pastors)are so obsessed with this football "worship" that it is viewed as a "must-see" event for them and their churches. To avoid the vexing dilemma of whether they ought to stay home, and miss church for a sporting event, some have come up with the novel idea of showing the game on large-screens at their churches. Realizing that when it comes to a choice between God and the World, He always loses out to the World and its toys, these "Christians" have decided to act on the principle:"If you can't beat them, join them". So it is that the world comes into the church, in the form of "Superbowl services". However worldly consciences are salved by the inviting of "sinners" to these events, where they can be entertained (along with all the millions of TV viewers) by the "pig-skin" during the game, and then "evangelized" at half-time by means of video "testimonies" from athletes and coaches who claim to be "serving the Lord in the NFL". Some churches boast of how many have been "saved" as a result. But have they never considered that there may be a problem with the concept:"Let us do evil that good may come"?

Thanks twoheadedcoin, I was starting to get worried for a moment. I tend to vote for candidates from both parties. I try to find out all I can about the people. My salvation depends on the grace of God through His Son Jesus. I don't particularly think God cares what party I'm a part of...

I feel when people attend these churches in America they are hit with political nonsense and do not feel the Love of God!!! I see this a lot on SA!

The question I must ask is when are the people in America going to realize that Democrats and Republicans are exactly alike?

Pax,for real,are you a member of Westboro Baptist or what?

I think you need to turn your question round Barry.

Communism, Socialism and Liberalism are all anti-Christian. Todays Democrats appear to be deliberately Liberal and Socialist as Obama seems to demonstrate.

Whereas Christian and Republican (Conservative) seem to be more synonymous in terms of their relation, thinking and their direction for society.

No reason indeed! John Y, you don't surprise me anymore. And apparently, you're in good company here too.
Sarcasm aside, this does sum up their position pretty accurately. I guess, for them, it's a betther position then "legalism" and "Lord of Sabbath", etc. This is the same kind of crowd that would have gone to Paul and said that, "if we're under grace, why not sin a whole lot so that grace can abound".

John Yurich

CV, your post kind of illustrates how a whole lot of churches are using God to give men what pleases them.

John, doesn't this kind of sum up your love of the RCC and the nondenomination churchs that love the RCC too, that they in a figure of speach let you have your cake (Superbowls etc.) and eat it too, continue to believe you are somehow a good person on your way to heaven, without actually having to change anything in your life, because you've said a "sinners prayer"?

Forgive me if I misunderstood. But your comment surely could have been phrased much better if you really wanted to clearly convey a particular message that you intended others to understand easily.

I believe it says "Lord also of the sabbath." Meaning all days including the sabbath are his. Do you watch any tv at all?
My family threw away our TV and movies and video games early last year. Thanks for asking.

Should you be using the computer on the Sabbath???
I believe it is not a sin to use the computer on the Sabbath (aka the Lord's Day!).
And I posted today to manifest my opinion on this horrible sin that that is being committed right now in GOD'S HOUSE!!! as I prepared to go there this morning.
Does that satisfy you? Let me know.

The whole day belongs to the Lord. Look at Genesis 2:1-3. It is now the first day of the week because that was the day that our Savior rose, and we REMEMBER (4th Comm.) that and give thanks for it, every Sunday.

Why would someone want to go to church on Sunday night, after going on Sunday Morning? Why would they Not want to? If you love God, His Word, and His people you would want to spend as much time as possible with them.
As far as the Sabbath issue. Iv'e been following comments on this site for some time regarding this, and have come to the conclusion that most people are unwilling to look at the whole teaching on this subject. They hear the word "Sabbath", and they immediatly assume the one using it is advocating Saturday Worship, Salvation by Law, or Cerimonial worship. They could just be talking about the Lord's day; meaning Sunday.
Why would you fault someone that wants to keep Sunday special for the Lord ?
I am not carnal or liberal. I am a Conservative Republican(I just switched political party affiliation from Democrat to Republican after the election last November). I guess it is fine if someone wants to attend church on Sunday evening after attending church on Sunday morning. Sunday is the Lord's Day, it is not the Sabbath.
