Football season starts this week and the resident football Pharisee of Armstrongism is doubling down on his hatred of football and those scantly clad whores that pretend to be cheerleaders:
Bob Thiel feels he is the worlds foremost authority on EVERY topic imaginable. OnlyI do not watch American football. I consider that it is evil (also, no Christian can really defend how professional football cheerleading females are often publicly dressed and displayed). Others want to falsely act like there is nothing wrong with watching it.
Later today, the National Football League (NFL) is scheduled to begin its official season for this violent sport. Many do not wish to seriously consider that American football is harmful, despite the facts, and would prefer that I not post about it.
The Bible suggests otherwise:
1 Cry aloud, spare not;
Lift up your voice like a trumpet;
Tell My people their transgression,
And the house of Jacob their sins. (Isaiah 58:1)
Talk about scripture twisting and taking things out of context! Never mind the fact that Armstrongism itself is one big enormous transgression, Thiel has to settle upon football.
There has been a lot in the news recently about some of the dangers of football. Because of that Thiel believes it is not ethical for TRUE Christians (i.e. only those part of his personality cult) to watch football.
Football and those that watch it are hating their neighbor:
There is no doubt that American tackle football is dangerous to health. While some in the world consider it watching it to be an ‘ethical uncertainty,’ true Philadelphia Christians (as well many who are not) realize that something that this sport is physically harmful and should not be encouraged.
From the violence on the field, to the under-clothed cheerleaders, to some of the half-time antics, there is a lot wrong with American football.
I could not reconcile loving my neighbor as myself and cherishing my flesh and not doing violence to any man by watching others do it in a football game. Nor the following:
9…You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. (Romans 13:9-10)
Thiel also throws in Apostle Paul as a stance defender of football hating:
Is watching American football a deed that would be pleasing to God?
The Apostle Paul wrote:
12… they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.(2 Thessalonians 2:12)
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:28-32, NKJV)
Thiel is quit perturbed that so many mock him and his silliness:
Then to get in his final bitch slap at COG members and leaders who continue to watch football he throws out the hated Laodicean label.Some may not wish to hear about any of the evils of violent sports, and instead prefer smooth things, but hopefully I have tried to follow the Apostle Paul who declared:
26 Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God. (Acts 20:26-27)The bodies and blood of those who engage in violent sports is important. It does not show Philadelphia love.
You can read his asshatery here: NFL 24: Should You Be Watching?Those Laodicean Christians who are fans of American tackle football are NOT Philadelphians and will be subject to violence themselves as they will have to go through the Great Tribulation if they do not repent (Revelation 3:14-22). Encouraging violence in sports does not show brotherly/philadelphian love.
Only in the cult of Armstrongism can such inane stupidity reign supreme.
