Their first priority is love of God and worship. But then again… if a game schedule interferes with the worship schedule, move worship. Because, you know, God comes first except when there’s a game on…

    Of course if society were correctly structured, worship would be so vital to the upkeep of the state that such spectacles would be planned around observance, rather than the other way round. We live in an upside down world.

    It used to be that cities were modeled around as well as centered around temples or holy sites. Such civilizations seem to produce cities superior in aesthetics.

    Quite similar to Judas selling Jesus for 30 pieces of silver in his betrayal. How worthless in comparison to the glory that would have awaited him.

    Slowly, incrementally, we shift around and downscale priorities. Over time, we’re left with a society that is really nothing but fun and games.

    What Mark said. Also, it starts with the young. Youth sports have games on Sunday mornings. And most stores should be closed on Sundays.

    Exactly; if churches were more consistent in enforcing Sabbath-observance (I have to give my Reformed churches credit for being especially vigilant, compared to most, in such), both in church attendance AND in not patronizing other businesses or making others work in any way (including watching TV sports, or going to youth games), then sports and businesses would fall in line (well, at least in areas where Christians are numerous enough to make an economic difference if ignored).

    Well, heck, since most churches won’t even hold services on Christmas Day if it happens to fall on a Sunday, we certainly can’t be surprised if they cancel them for some secular event.

    I’m so old that I can remember when most schools and community organizations not only didn’t schedule anything on Sunday, but also refrained from scheduling things on Wednesday evenings, since so many churches had their midweek services, Bible studies, or prayer meetings on Wednesday evening.

    I didn’t realize about not scheduling things on Wednesday, though I knew about midweek services / prayer meetings on Wednesday evenings…
